Ubisoft’s vaunted open world first-person shooter series returns to action this holiday season in the November 18th launch of Far Cry 4 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

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.

“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.”

So, there you have it. Far Cry 4 will takes place in the Himalayan mountains, which should offer a nice change of scenery from the tropical locales of Far Cry 3. Ubisoft is remaining tight-lipped about other details until the game makes its world premiere at E3 on June 9th.

That said, Ubisoft has already announced a pre-order campaign for a free “Limited Edition” upgrade offering a set of three bonus single-player missions called Hurk’s Redemption, “The Impaler” harpoon gun included.
