Ubisoft just announced Far Cry 4 set to drop in North America on November 18. The game will take place in the Kyrat, an untamed region of the Himalayas ruled by a self-appointed king.

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,” said Dan Hay, Executive Producer. “Given the unique setting, we feel Far Cry 4 will stand out as a top first-person shooter and we’re eager to reveal more about the game in the coming months.”

With the announcement also comes word of pre-order bonus featuring three additional single-player missions with Far Cry 3 nut-job Hurk. Hurk's Redemption will also nab players The Impaler – a huge harpoon gun.
