As we move into a busy month for gaming, the Far Cry 4 release date almost sneaks up on us tucked in after Assassin’s Creed Unity and alongside the Xbox One and PS4 GTA 5 release dates.
Far Cry 4 brings back the fourth installment of Far Cry, placing gamers in Kyrat with new co-op modes to bring a second player into the mix as you play through the missions. On the PS3 & PS4 Far Cry 4 game you can invite other players in even if they don’t own the game.
If Far Cry 4 flew under your radar, here is a closer look at the Far Cry 4 release date and new Far Cry 4 videos to help you catch up on what this game has to offer.
Far Cry 4 Release Date
The Far Cry 4 release date is November 18th on disk and digital. You can buy Far Cry 4 for Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The basic version starts at $59.99 and when you pre-order you get a free Limited Edition upgrade that includes three new single player missions, a harpoon gun, depending where you order other special weapons and a Yak Farm Mission.
Far Cry 4 Digital Release
The Far Cry 4 digital release arrives on the same day as the disc, and includes the same content. You need to download the game from Xbox Live, PSN or other sources for PC. You cannot sell a digital download later or trade it in towards a new game, but you also don’t need to switch disks while you are playing.
Gamers can pre-order and pre-load the digital version of Far Cry 4 on Xbox and Playstation. The pre-load starts the download early so you can play right at midnight. The pre-load option is not available yet, but it should arrive in the near future.
Midnight Far Cry 4 Release Event
Best Buy promises a midnight Far Cry 4 release date event with stores open at 12:01 AM to sell the game. Though it is not confirmed, you can also expect an event from GameStop. Because the game shares the day with the Xbox One and PS4 GTA 5 release GameStop will very likely remain open. Find out if your Best Buy is open for the midnight release.
Far Cry 4 Special Editions
There is a Far Cry 4 special edition for Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360 with the same Limited Edition bonus items, and several other things packed in to the box. You get a figurine of Pagan Min, travel journal, poster and map of Kyrat in a collector’s box.
This is $129, which is higher than the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Atlas Pro edition that included a Season Pass and other in-game content.
