is an upcoming action-adventure first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One video game consoles, and Microsoft Windows.
The sequel to the 2012 video game Far Cry 3, it is the fourth installment in the Far Cry series. It will be released worldwide beginning in North America and Europe on November 18, 2014, followed by Australia on November 20.
The single-player story follows Ajay Ghale, an English-speaking Nepali native who returns to Kyrat, a wild and untamed region of his home country to scatter his mother's ashes. Once there, he becomes caught up in a civil war as the people struggle under the despotic regime of self-appointed king Pagan Min (Troy Baker). Far Cry 4 marks the first time in the Far Cry series that the main characters are natives to the country in which the game takes place.
Far Cry 4‘s narrative director Mark Thompson expressed that he wanted the narrative of the game to correct shortcomings he felt the previous game Far Cry 3 had. In Far Cry 3, the open world nature of the gameplay was at odds with the plot as it allowed the player to perform protracted acts of exploration despite situations in the narrative which were supposedly time critical. For Far Cry 4 efforts were made to ensure the open world gameplay and story complemented each other. In addition, the writers chose to minimise the amount of voice over from the player character to allow the player to better immerse themselves in the role, and added Tarantino-like dark humour in order to address the contrast between the game's heavy violence and the fun the player will be having while playing.
The game is being designed to allow Players to invite friends to play cooperatively even if those friends do not own the game. To do this eligible players will receive ten invites which they can then send out to said friends who will be able to download a version of the game and play alongside the host player on a trial basis.
Ubisoft will release three different editions of Far Cry 4. The Limited Edition, which includes the "Hurk's Redemption" DLC Pack, will be offered to those who pre-order the game.
The Kyrat Edition, which will include a statue of Pagan Min, a map of Kyrat, a propaganda poster, a journal and a collector’s box, as well the "Hurk's Redemption" DLC Pack. While the standard edition will only include the game.
