Far Cry 4 Set in the Himalayas With Elephants You Can Ride - Report

According to reports, Far Cry 4 will be set in the Himalyas and heading for a big reveal at E3 2014 this June, with a launch potentially scheduled for fiscal year 2015 (sometime before the end of March 2015). What's more, it'll apparently feature elephants that you can ride. Huzzah!
Something of a departure for the series, which normally sees players visiting hot climates like tropical jungles and dusty, malaria-ridden plains, Far Cry 4 will take the franchise into snowy mountain peaks with elephant back rides among a range of new features.
This is all according to reports originating on Eurogamer, gleaned from inside sources close to the project. Far Cry 4's gameplay remains similar to that of Far Cry 3, which it's speculated would mean more hunting with the world's map also laid out in a similar structure. There'll reportedly even be outposts to liberate once again.
We'll find out more - like whether all of this actually proves to be legit - at E3 2014, where no doubt Ubisoft will also be showing The Division, The Crew, the rumoured Assassin's Creed: Unity and more. Hopefully, we'll see Far Cry 4 there too, presumably for Xbox One and PS4.
