Not only was Far Cry 3 a big success for Ubisoft, but it was a pretty damn good game, too. It's why we're getting Far Cry 4 later this year, confirming longstanding rumors of another open world sequel.

Ubisoft stealthily announced Far Cry 4 as part of its financial results today.

The game, which takes place in the Himalayas, is scheduled for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 18. We'll most likely see much more of Far Cry 4 at E3.

The company revealed a little bit more about the game on the PlayStation Blog today.

"Of course, you can expect the same unique, open-world gameplay that has set Far Cry apart from more traditional shooters. Far Cry 4 will be set in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous, and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic, self-appointed king. This is not your standard FPS. You will be equipped with a vast array of weapons, animals, and vehicles, and our highly detailed and interactive open-world will let players write their own story across an exotic and varied landscape."

For now, let's all gaze upon the amazing art for the game.

i want to be equipped with a vast array of animals

@ajayraz: Exactly my thoughts.

Does this mean a capturing mechanic? Also, I want that fuckin' suit bro.

Nice, great news. I like seeing a game announced and released in the same year. Also, is this Ubi's first multiplat/cross gen game to not have a Wii U version?

that suit dude looks like he would know a thing or two about equipping animals

I hope the bad guy isn't just Vass 2.0.

That said, I'm super excited. I loved Far Cry 3 and the Himalayas seems like a really cool setting. I kinda wish this was current-gen only, though...

Far Cry 3 was indeed a good game, but I happened to be playing it around the time the Sandyhook shooting happened and found myself unable to get back into the game after that. Let's hope I can make it all the way through this one!

#7 Edited by AmatureIdiot (1076 posts) -

Far Cry 3 was probably my GOTY, so I am really excited for sequel which won't be kinda jacked on consoles (hopefully).

#8 Posted by AlexGBRO (273 posts) -

hmm earlier than expected

#9 Posted by TheMasterDS (2015 posts) -

Being equipped with a large array of animals makes me think of Hearthstone's Hunter. And Hearthstone's Hunter is often super fun to play. If that line means anything resembling Unleash The Hounds I will be very happy.

I hope dude in suit is another lunatic like Vaas.

#11 Posted by Nightriff (4911 posts) -

Well I'll be getting this day one, waited on 3 and loved the hell out of it, so more of that and I'm in.

I look at that boxart and think back on what Far Cry was like at first 10 years ago and wonder if Far Cry is on the same trajectory as Saints Row.

#13 Posted by cooljammer00 (1537 posts) -

It's Brayko from Alpha Protocol!

#14 Edited by Luck702 (378 posts) -

One question:
Can I shoot a Yeti with a rocket launcher?

#15 Posted by Soapy86 (2620 posts) -

Far Cry X Saints Row

#16 Edited by JonnyAshley (13 posts) -

He looks like Julian Assange!

#17 Edited by Adaptor (186 posts) -

That 'art' doesn't make a great first impression. Unless it's meant to be a Genesis game or something...

#18 Posted by revel (86 posts) -

Yes! I am super excited for this. FC3 was my favorite game that year.

#19 Posted by Chicken008 (323 posts) -

DLC Cry 4.

#20 Posted by Jayzilla (2555 posts) -

Confirmed. Patrick Stewart with a toupee as the villain.

#21 Posted by Spitznock (482 posts) -

I'm on board!

#22 Posted by Shortbreadtom (687 posts) -

If the final hunting mission isn't a yeti they have WASTED the Himalayan setting

#23 Posted by wrecks (2210 posts) -

Hell yes.

#24 Posted by Atwa (614 posts) -

Didn't like Far Cry 3 at all personally and only two years later makes me think it will be very similar, well most people seemed to like that so I can't complain. Not for me probably.

Making the same villain over and over again, that would be insane.

#26 Posted by Grilledcheez (3943 posts) -

Far Cry 4 was announced...just as I am starting to play 3 lol

#27 Posted by Clapmaster (81 posts) -

Can't wait. I better start start saving for a new video card now!

#28 Posted by LandonRobinson (95 posts) -

Let's hope they don't squander the potential of an antagonist like Vaas again. Everything about that character was so rich and distinct, I just hope it gets treated a bit more elegantly this time around, if they have one (which sounds like the new king fellow).

Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, Far Cry 4... Ubi sure does love to pump these open world games out

#31 Posted by TooWalrus (13135 posts) -

Quite disappointed that they're reaching back to the 360 and PS3 but still definitely interested.

#32 Posted by Pie (7053 posts) -

eh, stopped playing FC3 once I got to the second island and would have stopped sooner if not for the hype and the fact I dropped 30 quid on it. They should make Far Cry 2 again

#33 Posted by baka_shinji17 (186 posts) -

This better have volcano diving or I will be pissed.

#34 Posted by Brad3000 (66 posts) -

So does the bad guy have just one stumpy leg?

Seriously - how bad is that art? Looks like they hired a freshman from art-school who hasn't taken any life drawing classes yet.

#35 Posted by Existence (16 posts) -

Going off the appearance of the villain - I'm glad that they're retaining the surreal, sort of self aware vibe of FC3 instead of making a serious "dark and gritty" game. The pink suit and the douchey look made me chuckle when I first saw it.

#36 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10467 posts) -

I'm VERY excited.

#37 Posted by Lyfeforce (354 posts) -

I've got a baaaaaaad feeling about this.

#38 Posted by Dixavd (1305 posts) -

From an art perspective, it seems to be a mix of what I loved from Far Cry 3 and the Tomb Raider game that came out last year - which is a neat surprise.

#39 Posted by Greenshoes (276 posts) -

I wish they had waited a year or two more to release a fourth game.

Yes, but I'm also worried. The first half or so of FarCry 3 was absolutely amazing. But in the second half it became very clear that Ubisoft had no idea what they were building in the first half. They didn't deliver on any of the very interestingly established story points.

I am worried a little bit because they are apparently moving in the same direction and I hope they finally understand what made that stuff so great; instead of adding it in to say: 'See? This stuff is back!'

That said, I really enjoyed playing FarCry 3 and even though I thought it ultimately didn't live up to what it projected, it was one of my favorite games that year. In fact, I feel compelled to go back and play it again right now.

Wow, there is a lot going on in that picture.

#42 Posted by Marcsman (3113 posts) -

Ubisoft has been crushing it lately. AC IV and Child of Light are awesome. If Watch Dogs is even semi decent. Ubisoft has to be developer of the year, well at least for the PS4.

That dude in the suit has Patrick Stewart's face.

Suit guy whispers into to ear of the poor sod: "Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. NOW!"

What the hell is that picture? That's awful.

#46 Posted by ADAMWD (564 posts) -

I'm always a bit skeptical when it comes to huge games with shorter than expected dev cycles due to multiple studios working on the game.

#47 Posted by Azraden (18 posts) -

So how long until the writer tells everyone that his shitty story is "satire" and they we just totally don't get it and he's actually a wonderful writer?

#48 Edited by realkman (70 posts) -

Hopefully there isn't too much writing in this one.

#49 Posted by TN04 (20 posts) -

This could be really good or really bad depending on the villain. Art looks awesome though.

#50 Posted by Fudge91 (199 posts) -

cool... but a sequel to Blood Dragon would be even cooler :p
