Pack away your tropical gear, because Far Cry 4 is heading to the Himalayas.

Far Cry 4

Announced today, Far Cry 4 will release this year on November 18 in the US and November 20 in EMEA territories. The game will be available on both generations of consoles – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 – along with Windows PC.

Taking a sharp turn away from the lush island jungles of the top-rated Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4 is set in Kyrat, an untamed region currently ruled by a despotic self-appointed king. But don’t be lulled into a false sense of security by the achingly beautiful views; Kyrat is a wild land full of perils. Once again, players will be able to craft their own stories as they travel through this exotic open world teeming with wildlife – using their wits along with an assortment of powerful weapons and diverse vehicles.

“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. “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.”

Development on Far Cry 4 is being led by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Kiev.

For an exclusive first look at Far Cry 4, be sure to tune in to Ubisoft’s media briefing at E3.

Monkey Around With Hurk

The great news: pre-order Far Cry 4 and you’ll receive a free upgrade to the Limited Edition, which not only includes the Hurk’s Redemption missions but also The Impaler – Hurk’s hefty harpoon gun. Pre-orders are available now through all major retailers.

You know there was a lot of fan fare in the game that the fortress would be very hard to take out and that you should call for help do it in a "team" so to speak.


Granted it was hard but I managed lone wolf style, with a bit of luck I might add as I ran out of arrows. I came very close to pulling it off with no alarms, but alas all 3 alarms were triggered in the end. Talk about all hell breaking loose... LOL.


Anyway, it was a challenge as I spent a whole day testing and planning... figuring out what would work and what would not. Then another 2.5 hours the next day to pull it off. The attack was rather unexpected as I had only a few outposts captured I don't know if that helped or not? Is the AI that smart? 


Alas, my lone wolf friends... it can be done. I did it and I'm pretty sure I can do it again if need be. Playing on normal setting. I loved FarCry3 and from what I see so far FarCry4 isn't far off. The grappling hook, chopper and attempts of hostiles taking back outposts really gives a much better feel of realism that was sorely lacking in FarCry3.


Love it so far!  


Hoorah!

Why cross gen is bad: Environment can only be as large as the system can handle. A PS4 / XB1 only game will have much larger, detailed worlds than the PS3 / XB360 can handle. No amount of porting will solve this. Now suck it

Thanks for current gen
Thanks for current gen

I can't believe that people are complaining that it's a cross gen, just because you were stupid enough to buy a next gen console when u can just get a HDMI cord and it's almost the same. Most people cant offord a $500 or $400 console, I'm glad they made it cross gen. Besides what about all the people that don't have a next gen console.

Why on Earth is everyone whining about what consoles it will be on? It's a fourth game. therefore the game itself will have better technology than the third game. Not that complicated of a concept, really. If you're worried about consoles limiting the game's performance, here's a crazy idea for you: Don't buy a console.

Lets talk about the important topic here. Is ubisoft going to ban vehicles in multiplayer like they did in FarCry3? It greatly hindered map making knowing all maps have to be walking sized.

If the game represents Nepalese character, geography and context, why is Hindi used as the language? Why not Nepali?

Hope we will finally get some offline multiplayer with A.I. on user created maps.Thats one thing i really liked about the prior3 ,the map editor..dont get me wrong you gotta be a real fan to enjoy there so/ so online multiplayer ( which i do) it would be a nice surprize. Search Bullmess on fc2&fc3 user maps online(Xbox360) or go to Far Cry map forums top maps every name u see is from my group of friends ...mikeglive/deathweapon/m1bumper/lngrider and so on ..we all spend countless ours on maps and play them...Like Dr.Steve Brule says,"CHECK IT OUT"

What if the bad character, I can't think of his name, and the main character, can't think of his name either, where father and son? In the first 5 minutes of the game the bad guy recognized the mains eyes, could have his mothers eyes, and he also clears his schedule so they can fuck shit up. Every evil father wants to rule with there son, take darth vader and luke skywalker for a example, the son rebels against the father. That could be exactly what is happening in far cry 4

yeees ! fc 3 is my favorite game and i hope fc 4 wil be too . i have no bad thing to say about the single player of fc3. but i give one tip for coop , make it possible to play with your friends on the map of single-player , players want to hunt, kill and explore togetter, alot of friends say that too so thats all i have to say. can not wait till it comes out !

I hope far cry 4 wil be more realistic like fc2. Fc3 was great but felt like an arcade shooter. The game world in fc2 also felt more diverse and believable.

LMFAO I love reading the comments from all the console scrubs. You 11yo piss stains need to understand something. The company that makes the game likes to make money. They need money to make more games. This means they need sales. To make sales, they will try to downgrade the game to work on your subpar consoles. Just play the fkn game and stop all this crying over what systems the game is made to run on. Anyone with half a braincell knows that games are written on PC's and dumbed down so you peasants can play them. Now go steal your mommies credit card and buy the preorder.

With the return on the map editor probably coming I would like to see where multiple people can edit maps in the same session also it would be awesome if you could pop in and out of edit mode with the click of a button all these are similar to the halo franchise forge mode. What do you guys think?

I am so excited for a Himalayas themed far cry. My favorite game "themes" are always snow and desert! So I am stoked to play almost a mixture of Far Cry 3 and Uncharted 2; my two favorite games of all time.

hs to say

So...here come another hand-holding game with pretty graphic.

I don't understand why anybody who is 16yo and older would be exited about this game... I mean- don't you boys and girls have any standards?

What was Far cry 3: idiotic storyline, no exploring( sorry, but if you put mark on map telling you where is everything- I dont need to put any efort to it and therefore I dont explore, I just follow preset path), dull shooting, stupid AI, slow moving, utterly stupid upgrading system( I can create only one, ONE, wallet from two animals, WTF?? Who think this is inteligent, or even fun?), I can go on and on and on...

And you ask why is this cross-gen? Well, people had enough of these idiotic games and wont buy new hardver because they don't seem to like when they feel that someone is *loving* them into the head. Therefore, game developers are forced to create games for older platforms so they can sell them. Suprise folks! You are just a wallet carriers to them. No, they wont give you quality product, because they know some of you( read: lazy and unimaginative children( read: modern kids)) dont like to think.

So why would they put some effort into it? Obviouslly, all they need to do is pretty graphic, cool looking youtube video and viola- money just come in... Thank god for those inteligent games from that "indy" part of game universe.

Ding ding ding..we have a winner!

You realize that the only thing PC's have over Consoles are graphics, framerate, and cheaper games (assuming that Steam is used) right? The gameplay and story will be the exact same, and those are the only things that matter in a video game. You don't really have anything to brag about.

Pwnicus

The link to this news article came from the main Steam page for Far Cry 3... and since the previous titles are on Steam, I'd say FC4 being on Steam would be a safe bet.

I agree with your points about not being forced to explore. I wish there were some missions that only said you have to go to the North Shore of the island, or just some general area on the map. On the other hand I don't want to be frustrated by trying to find something that OI have no idea where it is. It would have been awesome if you just had a marker you could see in the distance but you had no other help on how to get there. But other then that, I loved the story, the game play, the graphics, shooting mechanics and just about everything else.

And they feel better, have better physic, better modding community( if consoles have any, i dont know), you can upgrade your PC while with consoles you are limmited with wath you can afford at the time you buy it, consoles lack the abillity for editing game files PLUS( and both of this is biggest bullshit you guys need to swallow) you need constant internet connection and cant play older games on newer machines. No need to say that we, on a PC, not only can play older titles- I can play games made for your consoles( sooner or later). Just to be clear - having bigger framerate is huge advantage and because graphic IS no.1 priority to any game developer in any sector( pc or consoles) today- we really DO have "better" games.

I do hope this game is as good as it looks and the actual game play at least as good as FC3. Possibly with another cool Skrillex track or more.

At this time FC4 appears to be available to pre order at most places apart from Steam... If it's not on Steam I will not buy it no matter how good it is.
