For an extra $30, a sizeable collection of bonus maps and mutliplayer modes will be available in Far Cry 4’s Season Pass.

More and more developers have been electing for a “Season Pass” type system, and Ubisoft will be no different with Far Cry 4.

Far Cry 4’s season pass package of bonuses will give players an assortment of new missions to experience, as well as a unique PvP multiplayer mode for those that elect to pay the additional $29.99.

The selection of missions should be very exciting to play through, with each having a unique style and a mix of them including multiplayer as well. There’s enough variety within the package to make the the extra costs worth it.

Here’s what you’ll get:

The Syringe – Available from launch exclusively for Season Pass holders, players must keep a rare and potent recipe from falling into the hands of Pagan Min’s forces. Playable in single-player and co-op, players will need to ensure that he does not use its devastating effects on the rebel forces.
Escape from Durgesh Prison – Ajay and Hurk have been rounded up and tortured in Yuma’s prison. Team up with a friend to escape and survive the hostile lands of Pagan Min’s Kyrat.
Hurk Deluxe Pack – Five missions, playable in single-player and co-op, including Yak Farm, Blood Ruby and Hurk’s Redemption are available. Access an arsenal of new weapons including a harpoon gun for Hurk.
Overrun – Team up as Rakshasa or Golden Path in this PvP mode and control a series of neutral locations across Kyrat’s countryside to protect them from being overrun by your opponents.
Valley of the Yetis – Ajay’s helicopter has crashed on an unforgiving Himalayan ridge. Explore the frozen landscape and find tools to upgrade your camp and protect it from a dangerous cult when night falls. With single-player and co-op options, players will not be alone, but in the darkest caves players will have more to fear than just the cult as the yetis await their prey…

Maybe the most exciting inclusion, the Valley of Yetis, will have a new PvP mode for gamers to experience. The yeti is just one of the many creatures you’ll be witness to in the journey through the insane world of Kyrat, and this game mode will put the spotlight on them.

Far Cry 4 releases on nearly all major platforms (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, and PC) on November 18th 2014. Look for the game to be available on the Xbox Store, the Playstation store, and Steam in the coming weeks.

Far Cry 4 – Glimpse into Kyrat Gamescom trailer

Ubisoft’s most recent trailer has given a much clearer view of the world in which Far Cry 4 takes place. The trailer describes the world as “beautiful brutality,” and it is certainly fitting — as it is for all Far Cry games.

From the Himalayas, to the parallel universe of Shangri-La, Far Cry 4 has a diverse setting with some beautiful landscapes that will certainly be enjoyable for players to fly through in their wing-suit.

Those who pick up Far Cry 4 on Playstation 4 or Playstation 3 will receive an exclusive promotion dubbed “Keys to Kyrat.”

The promotion will give each player who owns the game the ability share 10 multiplayer keys with anyone they’d like and play together — even if they don’t own the game. Learn more here. “Ubisoft utilizing free multiplayer trials to promote Far Cry 4”

Far Cry 4 will be released November 18th for Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
