Far Cry 4 will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in the first half of 2015, Eurogamer has reported. It is not said if Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are also in the works.

Citing anonymous sources close to the project, it is said that Far Cry 4 will be formally unveiled by Ubisoft at E3 2014 in June. Far Cry 4 will also swap out the tropical setting of its predecessor for the snowy mountains of the Himalayas. This marks a big switch in aesthetic for the sandbox series, which until now has been set in sun-drenched environments.

Players will also be able to ride elephants, it is said, and there will be a variety of other new features and additions to the title. An emphasis on hunting is still said to be present, and the world map will be split up with outposts in a similar fashion to Far Cry 3.

A Ubisoft Shanghai employee listed Far Cry 4 on his resume back in January.

"We’re totally psyched from [Far Cry 3]," said Ubisoft executive Tony Key to GameSpot last year. "It’s a great brand, and now it’s got the recognition it deserves, so we’re clearly going to make another one: more on that soon."
