It has been confirmed by Ubisoft that the new installment of the Far Cry series Far Cry 4 release date will be this year (2014) Nov. 18 in North America on all major gaming platforms like the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
Far Cry 3 was released to critical acclaim in November 2012 and many gamers and reviewers were fascinated by its fast moving and fun interface that was interactive. This open world first person shooter game saw the main character Jason Brody deserted on a tropical island with no way to get back home and a range of guns and weapons to use against a crazy gang leader while saving other people on the island.
Just like the third installment of the video game, Far Cry 4 too will be an open world first person shooter game, confirmed Ubisoft. It is supposed to take place in a fictional place called Kyrat, which falls in the Himalayan region. This exotic setting will have its own protagonist who will be pitted against a blond haired self appointed king of the region. With a variety of different landscapes and geographical features and wildlife, the game players will be able to explore a variety of new things.
Dan Hay, the game's executive producer said, "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. 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."
This amazing new interactive game is being developed across 5 Ubisoft studios, with Montreal as the lead studio. Red Storm, Toronto, Shanghai and Kiev are said to be assisting with the project.
It has been announced that as a Limited Edition for pre order customers, we will also get to see Hurk from Far Cry 3 and he will be featured in 3 single player missions, called Hurk's Redemption, that will come with his harpoon gun – the Impaler.
