"In Far Cry 4, players find themselves in 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."
In the report also released the Executive Producer of the game also stated they wanted to bring a whole new level to the Farcry Series that fans have not yet seen before.
“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, in a statement. “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.”
The Montreal studio -- who is leading development for the upcoming game, is also collaborating with Ubisofts' Toronto, Kiev, and Shanghai studios, as well as Ghost Recon: Future Soldier developer Red Storm on Far Cry 4.
Pre-orders for the game are now live, and those who throw their cash down early will receive an upgrade to the Limited Edition, which comes with three single-player missions centered around Hurk, a character from Far Cry 3. Players who pre-order will also receive Hurk's signature weapon, a harpoon gun called "The Impaler."
