Far Cry 4 now available for pre-order and pre-download on Xbox One

Far Cry 4 is now available for pre-order and pre-download on Xbox One. There are two versions available to download in the Xbox Store as well as its season pass DLC. We have the standard Far Cry 4 which is available for $59.99, and we have Far Cry 4 Gold Edition, which is available for $89.99. The season pass itself goes for $29.99.

Far Cry 4 Gold Edition is the limited edition of Far Cry 4 as well as includes the season pass. The limited edition includes three action-packed missions as well as an in-game harpoon weapon called "The Impaler." Far Cry 4's season pass also includes an exclusive single player mission that will be available in the game day one. It also includes a PvP multiplayer game mode and what is described as a "co-op prison break" mission.

However, the most exciting bit of the season pass content is what is called "Valley of the Yetis." In this mission, your plane has crash landed on a ridge, and you must scramble to find weapons and tools to upgrade your camp before cultists attack at nightfall. But don't go searching too far otherwise you might encounter some deadlier foes.

Far Cry 4 is the latest installment in the series from Ubisoft, but this time it takes place in the Himalayan region. In the game, you play as Ajay Ghale, who returns to this region to spread his mother's ashes. However, Ajay instead, becomes entangled in the local civil war caused by a self-appointed king named Pagan Min.

Far Cry 4's island is said to be as big as the one from Far Cry 3 yet it feels more alive due to more wildlife, dense jungles, and scalable mountains. Although FC4 is a first person shooter, it also features lots of RPG elements such as weapon crafting and skill trees. Far Cry 4 launches on November 18.

  • Pre-download? What the hell is that? You download it before you download it?
  • You download it before it's officially launched. Just a couple months ago you couldn't download a game until it was launched. Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Digital games (outside of MS Studios) are £55 in the UK, this is completely insane. How can digital cost more than disc?
