    Ubisoft® takes players to new heights with Far Cry® 4

    UBISOFT® TAKES PLAYERS TO NEW HEIGHTS WITH FAR CRY® 4

    Sequel To The #1 Rated Shooter of 2012*









    London, UK — May 15, 2014 — Today, Ubisoft announced Far Cry® 4, an open-world, first-person shooter that delivers the most expansive and immersive Far Cry experience ever. Far Cry® 4 will be available November 21 in the UK for PlayStation 4® computer entertainment system, PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.

    Development on Far Cry® 4 is being led by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with Ubisoft’s Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai, and Ubisoft Kiev.

    In Far Cry® 4, players find themselves in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape.

    “Following the success of Far Cry 3, we wanted to take the franchise to the next level and create a game that will surprise players and exceed fans’ expectations,” said Dan Hay, Executive Producer. “Given the unique setting, we feel Far Cry® 4 will stand out as a top first-person shooter and we’re eager to reveal more about the game in the coming months.”

    Customers who pre-order Far Cry® 4 will receive the Limited Edition which includes Hurk’s Redemption, a series of three action-packed single-player missions featuring the popular character Hurk from Far Cry 3’s DLC. The Limited Edition also includes Hurk’s signature harpoon gun called “The Impaler”. The pre-order is now available at all major retailers.

    Fans can tune into Ubisoft’s Media Briefing at E3 for an exclusive first look at Far Cry® 4.

    I'm ready for some more Far Cry action. It has been too long.



    I thought AC4BF felt very FC3 like, so I enjoyed that, but will be happy to have some modern weapons back.

    Also I will miss the tropics, but it should still be good.

    Can't wait for some video to start dropping.

    I wasn't expecting to see this game launch until 2015 so I didn't see that coming, I have not made the jump to Next Gen yet and was wondering what game would force my hand into making the leap with Destiny been a possibility. Now I hear that Killzone Shadowfall is getting a 4 player coop mode I might look towards purchasing a PS4 so it looks like my Far Cry 4 gaming will be over PS3 & PS4 platforms - it will be interesting to aee what new animals weapons and settings we get with this game - I am sure I will love the single player - as for MP I hope that they have included the must have things we expect to be in every Far Cry game.

    I was happy as hell when I saw the elephants on the pre-order image. They looked so cool!

    I agree the elephant in the image looks great, it will be interesting to see what part they play in the game.

    Just a few days after the announcement of Far Cry 4, Ubisoft has revealed pre-order bonus content for the first-person shooter game. Those who purchase the game before its November release will have access to one hour additional singeplayer content in a Limited Edition.

    The bonus hour content will contain three “Hurk’s Redemption” singeplayer missions, and will also feature the exclusive Harpoon Weapon. The description on GAME also adds the following details


    • Mission 1: Fight dangerous enemies in the ice caves of snow-capped mountains to retrieve a rare artifact.
    • Mission 2: Fight waves of enemies while riding an unusual vehicle with Hurk by your side.
    • Mission 3: In this epic bro-tastic conclusion, chase down an enemy convoy and save Hurk from certain death.
    • Exclusive Weapon: Harpoon gun “the Impaler”!
    • Use this modified whale hunting Harpoon with a Unique Skin Pack to shoot harpoon stakes!


    Well, it would’ve been cooler if they hadn’t given the summary of the missions, and even more cooler if they had given more details on the Unique Skin Pack that they mention with so much excitement in the last bullet.

    Far Cry 4 has already stirred some controversy with its cover photo, upsetting many who believe it to be homophobic and racist. The game sets itself in the untamed regions of Kyrat in the Himalayas, where a self-proclaimed king reigns with an iron fist and a despotic doctrine.

    Info Found Here

    The game is available for pre-order now on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and PC, and has a scheduled release date of November 18 this year for NA and November 20 for Europe.

    I can't wait and am looking forward to diving in with the community of mappers again. I think I might map PS4 this time around, we will see as the launch gets closer.

    ah, so the ridable elephant is probably only in the Hurk DLC then.

    And yea, I totally get the feeling that Far Cry 4 is going the crazy-drugs-satirical Far Cry 3 route in terms of story, which I don't mind to be honest. I loved Far Cry 3, even it's story, for what it was.
