Far Cry 4 announced, coming this November

The pre-E3 promotion continues to build, as Ubisoft has unveiled a sequel in the Far Cry franchise. Far Cry 4 is coming for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on November 18th. It will get a full unveiling next month at Ubisoft's E3 press conference. This sequel takes place in Kyrat, full of traps and a supremely confident madman who has gone and appointed himself king of the region. (That's him on the cover.) As per the previous games, you'll have access to an open world to hunt animals and take on adversaries aplenty, using a number of new weapons and vehicles. "Following the success of Far Cry 3, we wanted to take the franchise to the next level and create a game that will surprise gamers and exceed fans' expectations," said Dan Hay, executive producer of the series. "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." Fans can go ahead and pre-order the game to get access to the "Limited Edition," which includes Hurk's Redemption, a pack of three single-player missions featuring the return of the familiar character from Far Cry 3's downloadable content. In addition to these new challenges, you'll also have access to a new weapon, the Impaler.

Look everyone, Hurk's back!
