Ubisoft has today announced Far Cry 4, the next step in the ever-expansive Far Cry series. It will see the franchise tackle a new setting and will also release on a mixture of cross-generation platforms.
Far Cry 4 will take place in Kyrat, part of the Himalayas. It's a place that's been taken over by a self-appointed king, but it opens up a plethora of possibilities for those who want to create their own story and wreak carnage. There will be a whole host of weapons, vehicles and more, with Ubisoft hoping to expand this open-world franchise even more.
"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.
In conjunction with the announcement, Ubisoft also revealed that pre-orders will gain access to Hurk's Redemption, a piece of downloadable content that contains three single-player missions based around Hurk, who Far Cry 3.
Far Cry 4 will be releasing on the 21st of November, 2014 in Europe, while North Americans will get it a few days earlier on the 18th of November. It will be releasing on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, but will also be seeing releases on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
