Far Cry 4 release date announced for November on PC, current and last-gen platforms

Thursday, 15th May 2014 16:58 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Far Cry 4 is now official and has a release date set for November and like previously rumored, it does indeed take place in the Himalayas.

Far Cry 4 will be available November 18 in the US, November 20 in Europe and November 21 in the UK for PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

It was developed in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal, Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai, and Ubisoft Kiev.

Players will be thrust into Kyrat, a “breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king.”

Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will “write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape.”

“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.”

Customers who pre-order Far Cry 4 will receive the Limited Edition which includes Hurk’s Redemption, a series of three single-player missions featuring Hurk from Far Cry 3’s DLC.

The Limited Edition also includes Hurk’s signature harpoon gun called “The Impaler”. The pre-order is now available at all major retailers.

An exclusive first look at Far Cry 4 will be shown during Ubisoft’s E3 briefing and Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said during an investors call the game would contain “more multiplayer” than what was available in Far Cry 3 so we expect to hear more about that next month.

    I have that feeling in the back of my mind there’s going to be some form of internet backlash from this cover.

    Ahahaha that cannot be a real official poster?

    They went from a villian like Vaas to someone who looks like a homosexual magician.

    Shits just got incredibly real.
    Having Watch Dogs, Unity and Far Cry 4 sounds a little over kill so honesty, I won’t might them pushing this back a few months.

    Great news though, but a tad surprised they didn’t decide on the trademark “we have one more thing to show you” at there E3 con?! Strange.

    It’ll be delayed, of course, as is the norm lately.

    Lol. How is this possible?

    2 years for this title + Watch dogs and Assassin’s Creed from Ubisoft Montreal? Do they develop games or release them as fast as possible?

    Third was ok though. Not great but ok.

    Cover looks a bit weird? The Vass-ish villian looks like someone who would be a judge at American Top Model or something… not sure what they’re going for…

    No gameplay whatsoever six months before it’s released. There was even a demo for FC3 at E3 2011 where that was released in Sep 2012.

    Cautiously worried…

    When will these guys just stop with cross-gen releases??!!! I love Far Cry, but fact is it won’t be anything new, gameplay/AI/innovation wise, since it can run on last gen hardware. A bit gutted, but I love the Far Cry series.

    Sounds like a complete copy of FC3 with a slightly different setting (though only in name).

    It won’t feel the same as going from FC2>FC3 againl.

    will be delayed into 2015, no doubt.
    Watch Dogs in May, AC in pre-xmas time and FC4 in spring 15, seems logical.

    Did you not read the article? They have 4-5 studios working on each title so it allows them to develop much faster especially if each studio works on a single aspect of the game much like EA Sports has done it.

    Am I the only guy who thinks the villain looks like Patrick Stewart wearing a toupee?

    I was waiting for this game but it seems that they have ruined it. Its going to be Far Cry 3 Himalaya dlc. Cross gen $hit :( . Well lets hope that this “dlc” will be worth buying

    Its a shame that its releasing on the old gen. Not a true next gen game with similiar gameplay to fc3 ( like cod aw :\ ).

    @Reddpayn What’re you talking about? It’s coming to XBO and PS4 too.

    @silverstorm: True next-gen as in only being developed for PC, Xbox One and PS4 like Arkham Knight and Witcher 3.

    I hope they use the opportunity and let us play as an asian character.

    “It was developed in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal, Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai, and Ubisoft Kiev.”

    Yeah, how is this possible? :)

    Oh that happened, a bit soon and also a little close to the two Assassin’s creed games: I sense a delay.

    I think he can definitely be a terrifying enemy.

    It doesn’t really matter what he looks like. What matters is his character. His looks will probably show a huge contrast to his behavior. Many dictators lived in houses full of gold, had very eccentric preferences and yet were completely cruel and unpredictable.

    Look at Un for example. He’s just a fat kid with a shitty haircut. That guy is completely unpredictable and cruel. The only reason he’s not frightening to us is because we don’t live in North Korea.

    It wasn’t Vaas’ looks that made him such a memorable character.
