Those looking for more Far Cry 4 will be in for a treat when the new Escape from Durgest Prison DLC becomes available next month on January 13th. The new DLC will also introduce a series first: permadeath.

Ubisoft detailed the new DLC on their blog, writing that the it begins with Ajay and Hurk waking up in Yuma’s prison without any of their gear. You’ll need to race across Kyrat to complete a series of challenges to arm themselves and unlock new skills. You can’t just stroll through Escape from Durgest Prison either, as there is a timer counting down to your extraction. If you accidentally die during the mission it’s game over, man, and you’ll have to start again at the very beginning.

Escape from Durgesh Prison can be completed both solo and co-cooperatively, giving you the chance to enjoy the game at your leisure or beat it with a friend. The DLC is included as part of the Far Cry 4 season pass, but can also be purchased separately for $9.99.
