Despite the release of Far Cry 3 not being all that far away, Ubisoft have already announced the next title in the series; Far Cry 4. The new game in the Far Cry series will take place in a fictional Himalayan territory named the Kyrat, which will be ruled by what Ubisoft have called "a despotic self-appointed king."

Ubisoft plan to take the Far Cry franchise "to the next level" and create a game that will "surprise and exceed fan expectations." So far, not many details have been revealed on exactly how Ubisoft will plan to do this, but we'll definitely hear more about it at E3 in June.

Like previous Far Cry games, the new title in the franchise will most likely have a focus on makeshift weapons, vehicles and interactions with wildlife and animals in the world.

Surprisingly, Far Cry 4 has been set for a release on November 18th this year in North America, and two days later for Europe. Far Cry 4 is being developed for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and the PC.

Ubisoft have confirmed that pre-ordering Far Cry 4 will reward gamers with a free upgrade to the limited edition which will include three exclusive single player missions that feature Hurk, a character seen in DLC from Far Cry 3. We'll keep you updated on any more information about Far Cry 4 as it's released, but we probably won’t hear too much about it till E3.
