Far Cry 4 Aims to Surprise You, Exceed Expectations

By - Source: Ubisoft | B 27 comments

Ubisoft will show some Far Cry 4 footage during E3 2014 next month.

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.

    Was the plan for farcry 1-3 to be predictable and below expectations?

    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.

    Far Cry 3 was amazing to me because they based it on an amazing story line that almost everybody can relate to and recognize. The Alice in wonderland hints made the game SO much more enjoyable.

    The people saying that FC3 didn't have enough content, long enough gameplay, etc...put a sock in it. That's your opinion about the game, sure...but FC3 was amazing, hands down. The story, the characters, the game play, the GRAPHICS. Man...I'm disappointed in PC enthusiasts these days...and gamers. Always nit-picky about every detail and complain MORE when the next best thing comes out. My condolences go out to you plain-jane chaps.

    Far Cry 1 exceeded my expectations back in the day, the 2nd pissed all that away left a bad taste in my mouth. So I skipped 3 and now see what they can do with the 4th before I buy.

    Far Cry 3 was a great game. I enjoyed it a lot. The only thing I would suggest is that to make the game control input lag go away. Please make Far Cry 4 has the same control feeling like counter strike or Crysis.

    Far Cry 3 is the best in the series imho. Fun to snipe, stealthily take out targets or just blow the whole place up. I wish they fix the bullets when sniping. At a certain range from target, bullets dont register a hit. They just magically disappear or something.

    The storyline was magical.
    I tried a few mods, played thru story 3 times. I couldn't get enough.
    I hope they add more mod tools. Like mapmaking, being able to create your own settings, stories, placing down AI etc.

    Just look at Arma-series and its mods. Thats the way to go.

    PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

    looks like they cant go all out on graphics if they are to release port for these 2 platform. Jeez stop dev on these 2 consoles already. Focus on x86 platform.

    I had the same impressions with FarCry 2 and I skipped it too. but honestly FarCry 3 is a complete different animal with far dynamic characters and one of the best gameplay. you missed a lots of fun. and FarCry 3 DLC Blood Dragon was the best DLC I've ever played. amazing gameplay with great humor. just dont skip FC3.

    i hope ubisoft allow cut scenes to be skipped after finishing the single player story at least , they really ruined farcry 3 replayability by not allowing this :(

    I built my computer about a year ago and this is one of the titles that may push me to upgrade sooner rather than later. I like the idea that it could be surprising as long as they don't break everything that mad FC3 such a great game. I also hope for continued modding support and a better map editor. FC2's editor on ps3 was significantly larger than FC3's on PC which was a major disappointment for me.

    Far Cry 3 was an "average" game. If you weren't a main plot character you got the worst audio sequences I've ever heard, rather crappy when your sporting a $600 headset. Enemy AI was horrendous. Modders had to "fix" the game adding in respawning enemies and outposts (Ubisoft finally got the point and added those), as well as bumping up the graphical fidelity since Ubisoft pulled some smoke and mirrors at E3 (but then again what company doesn't?).

    Let's not forget the multiplayer. Constantly crashed, hardly ever saved loadouts or even experience. Most of the time when a level is completely it just locked up and kicks everyone out losing experience and items. Hackers were rampant and none of the mods seemed to care. In fact if you started linking evidence to another player that was hacking you received a lovely one month ban.

    Far Cry 3 was "average". Everyone gets a hard on for Vaas, which had hardly any depth in character. Here's a great idea, instead of a good boss battle in an arena styled setting fighting off the main bad guy and his goons. Let's do a dumb QTE boss battle that even a child can press through. Yippee. Far Cry 1 was fantastic, the franchise has gone downhill since then.

    I am not a terribly critical FPS player, but FWIW I really enjoyed FC3. It had the right combination of detail, physics, strategy, secrets, personalities, side missions...and even though the story line was predictable it kept me engaged for a while. I am very much into finding every artifact and loot chest and completing every side mission, so the game was very much worth the price for me.

    I personally liked the stealth tree, sneaking up on a camp, and carefully dispatching guards and then dragging them off into the forest. It would have been nice if the 2 remaining in the squad took notice that you took out 8 of their comrades, panicked, and then hit the alarm. I hope they put in a lot more camps, and make them very difficult to liberate.

    Hopefully my i5-3570k and EVGA GTX-760 SC can keep up when this comes out.

    If you finish it in less than a day, it's your own damn fault for skipping half the game.
