According to a recent report by Eurogamer, Far Cry 4 is not only being developed as you read this, but is getting a huge change of setting from the series’ typically hot, tropical settings to the more frigid, snowy mountains of the Himalayas.
But that’s not all. The region won’t just be an endless range of snow and trees, but is expected to feature a range of environments for the player to traverse. The game will also allow players to ride elephants as mounts, according to their insider.
The sequel to the incredible Far Cry 3 and Far Cry Blood Dragon won’t be coming any time soon, unfortunately, but will be released in the first half of 2015, with Ubisoft possibly aiming to release before the end of March 2015.
But we won’t have to wait too long to see it, with proper information about the title coming in Ubisoft’s annual press conference at E3 in June. Most likely the game will be coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One, although it is uncertain whether the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U are also being considered.
For non-Far Cry news, expect Ubisoft to also show off some surprises, and some more content concerning Tom Clancy’s The Division and the upcoming open world racer The Crew.
Eurogamer hasn’t confirmed the source of this information and has only mentioned being declined by Ubisoft for comment, so I’m treating it as a rumor for now. But if its true, then expect an awesome bounty of news and content to be coming your way. And as a huge Far Cry fan, I honestly can’t wait to see more.
