According to verified sources at Eurogamer, Far Cry 4 is indeed set in the Himalayas and will release in the first half of 2015.
Far Cry 4 was recently rumored to be set in the Himalayan Mountains by internet sleuth Superannuation who, more often then not, it spot on with his findings. According to the sources at Eurogamer, the fourth installment in the open world FPS adventure series will take place in the Himalayas and be revealed at this year’s E3. As you can probably already guess, the game will be on the Xbox One and PS4. No PS3 or Xbox 360 versions mentioned in Eurogamer’s post.
A new interesting gameplay element mentioned was the ability to saddle up and ride elephants, pointing towards more options for transportation in the latest installment. The game will be set up in a familiar fashion to Far Cry 3, however, with outposts and hunting returning among other features. However, Eurogamer speculates there will be a number of different environments in the game which we would tend to agree with given the variability of climate surrounding the Himalayas.
This year’s E3 continues to get more and more exciting. Let us know what you think about the next Far Cry game in the comments and what you hope to see!
