Ubisoft isn’t done emptying your wallets yet. In its earnings report today, Ubisoft officially confirmed the existence of Far Cry 4. If you were surprised by the insanity Far Cry 3 brought, you are in it for a surprise.
Far Cry 4 takes things to a whole different level, and we are talking about insanity in the wild region of Himalayas ruled by a self-proclaimed king.
The announcement of a new entry in Far Cry series shouldn’t come as a surprise, especially when Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot had already hinted about the follow-up considering the sales of the game.
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.
It sounds more of the same but that’s what Ubisoft is counting on, especially considering they are depending on the success of Far Cry 4 to drive the profits in 2014:
The year’s performance will be led by five games – Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, Just Dance, The Crew, and Watch Dogs.
Watch Dogs pre-orders are at record levels and it is perfectly positioned to become the industry’s most successful new IP in history.
Far Cry 4 will offer everything you love about Far Cry 3 but differentiate itself by offering unique setting and added surprises that will help it exceed fans expectations, and if you are to believe executive producer of the game Dan Hay, it will ‘stand out as a top first-person shooter’.
Far Cry 4 is set to release on November 18 for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
