Eurogamer claims that Ubisoft aims to release Far Cry 4 before the end of the next financial year and that the game will be previewed at E3 in June. In addition, the game will be set around the epic mountain ranges of the Himalayas – a big shift from the series’ penchant for tropical locations – and it is expected to be released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. No word yet on whether the game will make its way to previous-gen consoles. Hit the jump for more info.
The gameplay in Far Cry 4 is expected to be largely similar to Far Cry 3‘s with a large world map filled with outposts for the player to liberate. Players will also be given the ability to ride elephants and a host of new features are expected to accompany the game’s new setting in the Himalayas. Given the sheer size and scope of the mountainous region, the new location could be the perfect way to extend the already excellent series of games.
