Far Cry 4: Complete Edition announced for PS4 and PC

Far Cry 4 will be getting the Complete Edition treatment as a retail release in the UK come 19th June on PS4 and PC.

Strangely, no mention is made of Xbox or last-gen versions of this comprehensive edition.

Naturally, the Far Cry 4 Complete Edition includes all the content from the game's Season Pass. This means it gets the Valley of the Yetis expansion, The Hurk Deluxe Pack, and DLC add-ons The Syringe, Escape from Durgesh Prison and Overrun.

ORIGINAL STORY 26/09/2014 5.59pm: Far Cry 4 antagonist Pagan Min is certainly an eye-catching fellow with his ornate pink suit and shock of blond hair, and now we get to see his rather strong persona host a kidnapping/brunch (which, depending how you look at it, is either the best kind of kidnapping or the worst kind of brunch).

Don't judge Far Cry 4 by its cover, says game director

Alex Hutchinson responds to criticism of key art, pointing to Ubisoft's strong heritage of diverse characters.

Open-world action game Far Cry 3 was treasured by many, including Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell, who fell in love with its meticulously constructed open world and the interplay of systems within it, awarding it 10/10 in our Far Cry 3 review. But there were also other takes on it. Some players even felt the game's story of a white guy saving darker-skinned island natives was vaguely racist or at least racially insensitive. Now, Far Cry 4's cover depicting a blond man in a magenta suit terrorising an ethnically ambiguous fellow holding a cocked grenade has stirred up its own storm for its various interpretations.
