Far Cry 4 will be venturing into the Valley of the Yetis tomorrow, with its latest bit of DLC.
Valley of the Yetis dumps Ajay into the alpine tundra of the Himalayas, after a helicopter crash leaves him stranded. In his attempt to get out, he’ll come into conflict with monstrous yetis, and the creepy cultists that control the region.
This appears to lend a few new mechanics to Far Cry 4‘s basic gameplay. The initial base you capture will come under cultist assault every night, but completing side-quests and spending cash lets you upgrade your fortifications with minefields, barrel traps, mounted guns, and more. You can see a fair bit of this in action in the video below.
I’d like to do an impressions piece or a video on Valley of the Yetis when it arrives tomorrow, but unfortunately, things are a little busy right now with a million other games. We’ll see how it goes, though.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
