Far Cry 4 reportedly set in the Himalayas

Ubisoft apparently targeting PC and next-gen release by March 2015

Far Cry 4 will be set in the Himalayas, a new report claims.

According to Eurogamer sources said to be familiar with the project, Ubisoft intends to reveal the game at E3 in June and release it during the financial year ending March 2015.


The site claims the game is in development for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but couldn't confirm if PS3 and Xbox 360 versions are also in the works.

Superannuation also claimed last month that Far Cry 4 will be set in the Himalayas and that the Asian mountain range will play home to some form of monsters. Eurogamer's sources didn't corroborate this, but said the game will feature elephants players can ride on.

Far Cry 4's gameplay will be familiar to Far Cry 3 players, they added, with a similarly structured map and outposts for players to liberate.

Far Cry 3 launched in November 2012 and sold six million copies in the financial year ended March 2013, making it "another major" Ubisoft franchise, according to the publisher's CEO Yves Guillemot, and ensuring that a sequel is on the cards.

In July 2013, Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key said: "We're totally psyched from [Far Cry 3]. It's a great brand, and now it's got the recognition it deserves, so we're clearly going to make another one: more on that soon."
