Snow Joke: Far Cry 4 Goes Mountain High In November

Far Cryrim

I can no longer separate actual announcements from speculation, gossip and fever dreams, so while I *think* we've already heard a bunch of stuff about Far Cry 4 and how it'll have a snow-bound setting, for the sake of ease I'm going to pretend this is the first thing we've ever written about it.

Far Cry 4 is out this Winter, it is indeed set in the Himalayas and it's got a harpoon gun in it.

Not much else is being revealed until E3, but Ubi Montreal are at the helm again (with assorted other Ubi offshots contributing), there's the inevitable pre-order DLC (starring FC3's Hurk) and it's about taking down a despotic king.

In other, more official words: "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."

Far Cryrim, then? We shall see. I really hope the more perilous setting means a heightened focus on survival, but as FC3's more all-out action was the series' most commercially successful moment, I kinda doubt it.

Excited though - FC3 was fascinating and compelling despite its many annoyances.

November 21 is the Euro street date for this.
