Like many major AAA games, Ubisoft's open-world shooter Far Cry 4 will offer a DLC pass. It will cost $30, and includes a range of diverse content--including a new multiplayer mode and missions that will see you fighting off Yetis--that will keep you busy for "hours," the publisher said today in a post to its official website. A roundup of the content is below.
The Syringe (available on launch day) -- An "exclusive" mission that sees you preventing main antagonist Pagan Min from retrieving a "rare recipe and using it against the rebellion." This mission is playable in Far Cry 4's single-player and co-op modes.
Escape from Durgesh Prion -- Details are light on this mission, with Ubisoft only saying that you will "team up with a friend to escape Yuma's prison after being locked up and tortured."
Hurk Deluxe Pack -- This includes five missions featuring Hurk, a man you may remember from Far Cry 3. Three of these missions are called Yak Farm, Blood Ruby, and Hurk's Redemption. Unfortunately, Ubisoft did not share any further details about these missions or name the other two.
Overrun -- This is a new player-versus-player multiplayer mode where you can play as either the Rakshasa or the Golden Path. Your job is to capture territory around Kyrat while simultaneously stopping the territory from being taken by your enemies.
Valley of the Yetis -- In this content, after you crash land on a Himalayan ridge, you must trek through the frozen landscape, scavenging for tools and upgrades for your campsite. You'll also have to fight off "deadly nighttime attacks from a mysterious cult," Ubisoft says. On top of that, Ajay can explore caves, but "watch out for what lurks within," Ubisoft warns, presumably about Yeti danger. Valley of the Yetis is playable in single-player and co-op.
Ubisoft also did not share pricing information for gamers who want to buy the expansions individually, though the company did say that buying the pass offers a 20 percent savings. The publisher will also offer a $90 Far Cry 4 Gold Edition that comes with the game and the DLC pass.
We also do not know yet when any of Far Cry 4's expansion content will be available, outside of the launch day Syringe mission.
Far Cry 4 launches November 18 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. Ubisoft said recently that it's targeting 1080p visuals for the Xbox One and PS4 versions. For more on Far Cry 4, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
