Far Cry 4 Will Transport PC and Console Gamers to the Himalayas on November 18

A brand new Far Cry experience is coming this fall

Enjoy the warm summer, folks -- once it's over, you might find yourself dodging bullets and other dangers in Kyrat, a "perilous and wild region of the Himalayas" where the natives are struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. That's the setting for Far Cry 4, which Ubisoft announced will ship to PC and game consoles on November 18 in the U.S. and November 20 in the EMEA territories.

You'll have several different types of weapons, vehicles, and even animals to help you along the way. Though the setting is different than any previous Far Cry title, you'll be thrust into an open-world landscape where you can supposedly write your own story.

"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."

Eager beavers who pre-order Far Cry 4 will receive a free upgrade to the Limited Edition -- it includes Hurk's Redemption, a series of three single-player missions featuring Hurk from Far Cry 3's DLC. It also includes Hurk's harpoon gun, "The Impaler."

You can pre-order Far Cry 4 now.
