Far Cry 4 is out on November 18 for every console (except the Wii U) and PC. In true Far Cry tradition, it takes us to a new exotic locale--the mountainous region of Kyrat--and features a new cast of characters. Though it builds upon the first-person shooter foundations of Far Cry 3, and keeps its best items like the wingsuit, there's a lot more to the game than just its new faces and new places. Ubisoft's 101 trailer below has more.

The all-new open world co-op mode is a big one, and PlayStation players get something a little extra.

PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 Far Cry 4 players with PlayStation Plus subscriptions will receive ten invitations they can send to friends who don't have a copy of the game. These gamers can then play a free trial version of Far Cry 4's co-op mode.

Below is the full map of Far Cry 4's Kyrat. Ubisoft says it's about the same physical size Far Cry 3, but the game should take about 35 hours to finish.

Ubisoft has also confirmed that you'll need a 64-bit operating system to play Far Cry 4 on PC. The game's other recommended specs are below.

  • Processor - Intel Core i5-750 @ 2.6 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.2 GHz
  • Memory - 4GB
  • Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD5850 (1 GB VRAM), DirectX 11
  • Hard Drive - 30 GB available space

If your PC is running an Nvidia card, you'll have access to a few special graphical features through Far Cry 4's Gameworks integration.

Future content for singleplayer, co-op and competitive multiplayer is available in the game's $30 season pass, including a monster-themed mission called Valley of the Yetis.

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.

Find out about the star of the show: Kyrat's self-appointed king, Pagan Min--played by Troy Baker.

Finally, you won't just have guns in your arsenal as you take on Pagan Min's Royal Army--Ubisoft wants you to weaponise the wildlife, such as yaks, elephants and snow leopards.

So, after a bit of brainstorming, I decided to employ the big takeaways from all of these deaths: snow leopards love tasty flesh and yaks will charge at you if you get too close.
