In March, players of Far Cry 4 will come face-to-face with a new, thoroughly-supernatural enemy, as they venture into The Valley of the Yetis, the next DLC expansion for Ubisoft’s latest entry in the Far Cry series.
In Valley of the Yetis, players will again take on the role of Far Cry 4 protagonist Ajay Ghale, who survives a helicopter crash and must make contact with a rescue team. He finds himself in the eponymous valley, which is apparently not named to add some local colour nor for some metaphorical landmark, but because it’s the home of living, breathing Yeti – hulking great brutes with long arms, short legs, and a capacity for mauling presumably several times greater than the regular, worldly animals that are already trying to tear Ajay limb from limb.
Luckily, Ajay has some help at hand, as a second player can join in on the campaign and take on the role of Hurk, star of Far Cry 3 DLC Monkey Business and Far Cry 4 DLC Hurk’s Redemption.
If you think you’ve explored every hidden corner of Kyrat’s massive open world, the latest Far Cry 4 DLC is about to prove you wrong as you uncover Valley of the Yetis. Set in the aftermath of a helicopter crash, players are once more cast as Ajay Ghale, but this time he’s up against an otherworldly foe. ...
Beyond the supernatural twist and beasts, Ajay will have to contend with a group of violent cultists, whose regular assaults will require an arsenal of weapons and fortifications to fend off. The enemy is after a secret that lies in the heart of the Valley, and as Ajay discovers their motives, he’ll have to fight a mystic evil that runs deeper than anything he’s seen before.
But he doesn’t have to do it alone!
For those who enjoyed open-world co-op in the main game, this DLC allows players to go beyond just free roam. The entire Valley of the Yetis campaign can be played with a friend, taking on the role of Hurk. It means you get more fun, more anecdotes, more bro-ship.
Valley of the Yetis will be available on both Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 on March 10th in the US, but if you’re playing in the EU, you’ll have to wait just one more day – Valley of the Yetis is available from March 11th for players in the EU region.
