Ubisoft makes Far Cry 4 official, due this November

Ready those ridable elephants.

Ubisoft has confirmed Far Cry 4 will be released on 21st November in the UK for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.


As previously reported by Eurogamer, the title will be set in the Himalayas.

Specifically, the region will be named Kyrat, a "breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king".

Expect the usual array of weapons, vehicles, and wild animals - such as those ridable elephants.

Development is being lead by Ubisoft Montreal, in collaboration with Ubisoft's Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Kiev.

"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," executive producer Dan Hay said.

"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."

As expected, we'll see the game in action for the first time next month at E3 2014.

But - wasting no time - you can already pre-order the game! Pop your money down now and you'll get the "Limited Edition" version with "Hurk's Redemption", a pack of three extra missions starring the popular Far Cry 3 DLC character. You'll also get his harpoon gun.
