Eurogamer has got the scoop on the very next Far Cry game. As it has been hinted at in the past, Far Cry 4 will take place in the Himalayas. Now, before you worry that we'll be looking at just snow, know that that assumption would be false as that's not what the actual location solely looks like. There's foliage, animals, and pretty places, too!

Eurogamer's source states that the game will be revealed at this year's E3 and will release during the next financial year. The confirmed platforms that Eurogamer's source outed were PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. There's no word if Far Cry 4 will also be coming to last generation consoles.

Dropping the series' focus on tropical island locales, Far Cry 4 will take us to the mountainous rage in Asia, set between India and Tibet. This change in landscape will be a series first, as two out of the three main games in the series were tropical, with Far Cry 2 taking players to Africa.

The most exciting thing about a new Far Cry location is not just that we'll have a beautiful new land to explore, but the fact that it means we'll have ride-able elephants. Yep, Eurogamer's sources have confirmed that players will be able to ride an elephant and presumably shoot people from its back. How enchanting.

The only other details Eurogamer was given on Far Cry 4's gameplay is that there will be outposts that can be liberated much like in Far Cry 3. Overall, the message seems clear that the game will be similar to Far Cry 3, but in a new location. We'll be hearing more details soon, according to the site.

Personally, I hope the game revolves around Vaas trying to find inner peace in Tibet but ultimately gets swept back up into his old, insane life. I think we could all agree upon more Vaas.
