New content is now available for Ubisoft's open-world action game Far Cry 4. The French publisher on Tuesday released the Escape from Durgesh Prison expansion, a time trial expansion that introduces permadeath to the game. The DLC is available today on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.

In Escape from Durgesh Prison, main characters Ajay and Hurk find themselves locked in a prison, tortured, and stripped of the weapons. But these guys don't give up so easily. To escape, players must complete a series of challenges, set forth by evil leader Pagan Min, to acquire weapons and upgrade them before a final showdown.

Ubisoft says Escape from Durgesh prison, which is playable in single-player and co-op, represents a "true test of players' survival skills," in part because the expansion doesn't allow respawning. Once you die, you'll need to restart the mission, though you should have a better idea of how to proceed the second time around.

Escape from Durgesh Prison also features online leaderboard support, so players can track their performance against friends and the global community of users.

The DLC is be available through the $30 Far Cry 4 DLC pass (which includes a number of other expansions), or can be purchased separately for $10. For more, check out GameSpot's Far Cry 4 review.
