We all knew it was coming, but it's always nice when it's official.
Ubisoft has confirmed that Far Cry 4 is in development, and we've got some baseline information on the anticipated sequel.
Players will explore Kyrat, "a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas, struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king." As usual, we'll get a wide array of weapons and vehicles, and a variety of potentially dangerous animals will roam the landscape as well. Said executive producer Dan Hay:
"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. 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."
Pre-ordering Far Cry 4 will net you a limited edition version that features Hurk's Redemption, a three-part single-player mission pack. If you're familiar with the last series installment, you'll know Hurk… You'll also get his main weapon, the harpoon gun called The Impaler.
The new Far Cry is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on November 18.
