Ubisoft confirmed today that Far Cry 4 will be getting multiple DLC packs following its launch. These add-ons will add both multiplayer and single-player content to the open-world shooter.
The DLC can be purchased in bulk with a Season Pass or one at a time. The Season Pass is $29.99, which Ubisoft says will be 20% cheaper than buying all of the DLC packs individually. Ubisoft didn't mention the prices for individual add-ons today, though.
The first of these DLC packs will be available on day one. "The Syringe" is a new mission exclusively for players who buy the Season Pass. In this single-player or co-op adventure, players have to stop Pagan Min from getting his hands on a rare disease.
This mission will be eventually be followed by another called "Escape from Durgesh Prison." As the title suggests, this mission revolves around a prison break. One or two players must fight their way out of Yuma's prison.
Players hoping to kill each other will be able to play Overrun, a new competitive mode. In this game type, teams battle for control of a series of points across the countryside.
Perhaps the most intriguing DLC pack planned, though, is "Valley of the Yetis." Ajay crash-lands in the Himalayas and finds himself besieged by a mysterious cult and yetis. He can set up a camp in the mountains and upgrade it with materials he finds throughout the frozen terrain. Presumably these upgrades will make the camp easier to defend from the night-time raids by cultists.
The last bit of announced DLC is the Hurk Deluxe Pack. This is a compilation of the missions offered as pre-order bonuses. "Blood Ruby" sends players into Pagan Min's mine to steal a rare gemstone. The mission "Yak Farm" allows players to earn a double-barrel elephant rifle. The other three missions focus on co-op partner Hurk. Here's the official description of those missions from Ubisoft:
UbiBlog says that retailers are now accepting pre-orders for the Gold Edition of Far Cry 4 on PC and PlayStation platforms. This $89.99 edition includes the game and the Season Pass. Xbox pre-orders for the Gold Edition will be opened soon.
