Howdah like that?

Open world games always seem to have the same traversal options. The most common is a car, but planes, hang gliders, and superpowers are also repeat offenders. Fortunately, the unannounced Far Cry 4 is aiming to change things up, by allowing you to ride elephants through the Himalayas. Oh, and it’s all purportedly happening on the PlayStation 4. is reporting the rumour, but it isn’t the first time that the snowy setting has been connected to Ubisoft’s secret sequel. The backdrop was teased last month by industry super sleuth Superannuation. However, the aforementioned publication is privy to much more information – including a tentative release window, which will see it deploy before March 2015.

We’ll apparently get our first glimpse of the first-person foray during the publisher’s E3 briefing in June, which will supposedly stick closely to the foundations already laid by Far Cry 3. Indeed, you’ll still be hunting the local wildlife and liberating outposts – all of which proved unexpectedly popular in the 2012 affair.

According to the publication, this year’s Ubisoft press conference will also host a number of other surprises, in addition to demonstrations of open world racing game The Crew, ambitious shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division, and the recently leaked [And now, er, confirmed - Ed] Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

@Splat was for me the second best game on ps3 after fallout new vegas. I hope the franchise doesn't go stale though, its always good to mix it up a bit. Loving the decision to set it in the Himalayas.

@SimonAdebisi - It was just a fun game.

I greatly enjoyed the Path of the Hunter,Supply Drop and Wanted Dead side quests. I also really like liberating outposts and finding Radio Towers.

I did everything there was to do in that game.I was actually sad when I had nothing left to do haha.

Is that the Disneyland Jungle Cruise elephant? Only you.

I like the idea of a Himalaya setting, very Uncharted 2.

Maybe we'll get to hear some more Three Dog Night.

I was disappointed with near end game progression in 3. Hopefully they fix that in the new one.

@Splat FC3 was my personal 2012 GOTY. Awesome game. FC4 will be a day one purchase for me.

I only started playing Far Cry 3 a few weeks ago. It's the first Far Cry game I've ever played and I'm really enjoying it. It's easily one of the best shooters I've played in years. I'll definitely be looking forward to the next one.

To be honest I didn't really enjoy far cry 3, after the first few missions it got so boring so hopefully this one will be better
