Ubisoft Montreal have today released a new gameplay trailer for their impending first-person-shooter video game FarCry 4. Intended as a spiritual successor to 2012's FarCry 3 rather than as a direct continuation of its predecessor's critically acclaimed central narrative - an attribute which shouldn't surprise series veterans in the slightest given Ubi's tendency to ret-con the franchise's previous storylines with each new instalment - this multi-generation free-roamer will allow players to exploring the fictitious, mountain-laden region of Kyrat, encountering dangerous wildlife and warlords (no sign of the brilliantly unhinged Vaas, though, sadly - we'll have to settle for Pagan Min, the crazed tyrant who gives the trail in question its name) aplenty along the way.
Now, to be perfectly honest, dear reader, we were assuredly expecting either Ubisoft or their Montreal development studio to announce a delay in the title's release schedule before too long. Unless they're both playing their cards unnecessarily close to their chests, however, it appears that mid-November will not only see the launches of Assassin's Creed Unity, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham and the like, but also the fourth full instalment in a series which, incidentally, is celebrating its tenth birthday this year. Shall we all join together in wishing FarCry many happy returns and performing a heart-warming rendition of "For He's A Jolly Good Franchise"? Well, it was worth a shot.
FarCry 4 stampedes onto Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 (in fact, the game'll be bundled with PS4s for those who pick the hardware up after its release), PlayStation 3 and PC via all good UK video game retailers this November 18th.
