The UbiBlog announced on May 15 that Far Cry 4 is real, and it is set in the Himalayas.
According to the post, Far Cry 4 leaves the tropical setting of Far Cry 3 and heads to a wild region known as Kyrat, where a self-appointed king rules. Not much is known about this king, but Ubisoft promises more information at a later date.
Executive Producer Dan Hay provided information about Ubisoft's hope for Far Cry 4. "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."
Ubisoft Montreal is developing Far Cry 4 with the assistance of Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai, and Ubisoft Kiev.
Far Cry 4 will be shown during Ubisoft's annual E3 press conference on June 9.
If the cover art is any indication, this new villain looks to share the psychotic charm that Vaas had in Far Cry 3, which would be downright wonderful. We don't know anything about the "varied vehicles and wildlife" that Ubisoft mentions in the blog post, but we are hoping that Far Cry 4 will bring back the wing suit and include rideable animals…like an elephant.
