In one fell-swoop, Ubisoft today announced the existence of Far Cry 4, its release date, and opened up the floodgates for preorders. Ubi seriously isn’t wasting any time this time around. The new game will take place in a region of the Himalayas known as Kyrat. Like the last entries in the series, Far Cry 4 will unleash players upon an exotic open-world filled with weaponry, vehicles, and local flora and fauna. Kyrat exists under the rule of a “despotic self-appointed king”; no doubt that well dressed fellow featured on the box art.
If you’re still itching for more details, you’ll have to wait for E3. Ubisoft also announced that FC4‘s gameplay will be revealed via stream from E3 June 9th at 3:00pm PST.
Far Cry 4 will launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 November 18th, 2014. Preorders are already open at the usual retailers. Those who pre-order the game will be upgraded to the Limited Edition for free. The limited edition will include 3 extra story missions and a harpoon gun.
