A recent interview has revealed that two Ubisoft divisions are currently working together on Far Cry 4 missions that are set in an all new environment.
Speaking with RedBull, Creative Director Alex Hutchinson said that both Ubisoft Toronto and Ubisoft Shanghai are “working on a series of [Far Cry 4] missions set in an all new environment outside of the game world.”
Far Cry 4’s open world is set in Kyrat, a wild and untamed region, that in turn is located in the Himalayas. The snowy setting comes with its own set of dangers and challenges. The news of Ubisoft working on missions located outside of this environment is interesting.
We can only assume that the missions feature the traditional jungle settings with heavy vegetation, which we have come to see with previous Far Cry titles. That said, it’s also unconfirmed whether these missions are going to be included in the game’s single-player campaign or will be a part of paid DLC.
Hutchinson also revealed that Ghost Recon developer Red Storm Entertainment is “working on the competitive multiplayer part of the game.” Details though are not known at this time.
With Gamescom 2014 taking place next week, expect Ubisoft to reveal more details on the new missions and the game’s competitive multiplayer mode. If we’re lucky, we might also get to see some multiplayer footage.
Far Cry 4 is scheduled for release later this year and is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal.
