You can read more about Far Cry 4, as well as a pre-order bonus that will get you special missions involving a familiar Far Cry 3 face, below.
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.”
Far Cry 4 can be pre-ordered now for PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. And if you do pre-oder the game, you’ll automatically be upgraded to the Limited Edition version of the game for no extra cost, which comes with “Hurk’s Redemption,” a series of three single-player missions, as well as Hurk’s harpoon gun.
