Far Cry 4 Aims to Surprise You, Exceed Expectations

Far Cry fans now have something to look forward to this holiday season. Ubisoft confirmed on Thursday that Far Cry 4 is currently in development by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with Red Storm Entertainment. Ubisoft Kiev, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Toronto were also listed in the company's announcement.

"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," reads the game's description. "Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape."

The game is slated to hit the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on November 18 in the United States, and November 20 in the EMEA territories. Customers who pre-purchase the game now will receive a free upgrade to the Limited Edition. This upgrade will include Hurk's Redemption, which contains three single-player missions featuring Hurk, and Hurk's harpoon gun called The Impaler.

"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."

Additional information regarding Far Cry 4 will be revealed during Ubisioft's Media Briefing during E3 2014 next month. Fans can tune in on June 9, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. PDT to see the game in action.

    FarCry 3 exceeded my expectations, and most of the credit goes to the actor behind Vaas.

    I liked Far Cry 3, but Uplay is a hassle for sure, and after only about 20 hours I finished the game and ran out of content. I hope Far Cry 4 has a much longer story with decent replay-ability and loads MORE content.
