Far Cry 4's multiplayer mode is not locked behind a paywall, creative director Alex Hutchinson has confirmed, following some level of confusion earlier this week.

"Just so it's clear: Multiplayer is for everyone who buys FC4, no need to buy anything else," Hutchinson said on Twitter. "There is an extra mode in DLC."

The extra mode Hutchinson is talking about is "Overrun," which is included with the $30 Far Cry 4 DLC pass. When Ubisoft announced the pass this week, it was unclear if the game was going to ship with a multiplayer mode available for people who did not own the pass.

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.
