You know what Far Cry 3 was missing? A ridable tiger. However it's been confirmed that for the next game in the series, Far Cry 4, the developers are remedying that issue by adding ridable elephants to the mix.

The series will also be changing settings as it moves from tropical islands to the snowy reaches of the Himalayas. While the game is still a long way off, set to drop in 2015, gamers will get look at the new settings by midyear, said a source to Eurogamer.

While the gameplay will remain similar to Far Cry 3 with large maps and a focus on hunting the most elusive game, man. No word yet on a sequel to Blood Dragon but given the add-ons huge success we're hoping for more laser killing to come with the latest Far Cry.
