Not quite Yeti
The last Season Pass DLC for Far Cry 4 is a doozy. Crash landed in an even-remoter region of the Himalayas, Ajay Ghale must struggle to survive against dangerous beasts, murderous cultists, and a certain abominable snowman. You'll have to set up camp to survive the frigid landscape, upgrading it with scavenged tools so that you can ward off boneheaded (literally) cultists at night. Thankfully, you won't have to do any of it alone - not even the story missions.
Yep, Valley of the Yetis will be fully playable in co-op when it releases on March 10 in North America and March 11 in Europe. Sounds like an appropriately bonkers way to close out Far Cry 4's DLC, though you're still free to explore the new region at your leisure with a friend or on your own. Make sure you click on for more details on the rest of the open-world shooter's downloadable expansions.
Your buggy runneth over
Before I get to describing Overrun, the fourth piece of DLC for Far Cry 4, here's a reminder: the game does, in fact, including a competitive multiplayer mode. Said mode will be of utmost importance to your enjoyment of Overrun, since it adds a new mode, more maps, and a dune buggy to your online battles. It may be the only expansion for Far Cry 4 multiplayer that we know of, but at least it looks like a pretty cool one.
First off, the eponymous mode sees the Golden Path and the Rakshasa squaring off to control one of three king-of-the-hill style locations. There's a twist, though - at some point, the location will shift, meaning both teams had better get their butts in gear to claim the new spot. And how better to plot a course through four new maps than in the comfort of your own personal dune buggy?
Hurk at work
By this point in the Far Cry franchise, you either want more Hurk, or you don't want anything to do with Hurk. The third Far Cry 4 DLC pack is better suited to the former kind of open-world shooting enthusiast. Ubisoft released the Hurk Deluxe Pack on January 27, adding five new missions which star the globetrotting good ol' boy for both single-player and co-op. As you can probably guess from Hurk's starring role, things get weird.
The pack also introduces several new weapons, including Hurk's beloved harpoon gun. The Hurk Deluxe Pack (we've officially passed the point where 'Hurk' begins to sound less like a character and more like a choking sound) is available on its own or as the third part of the Far Cry 4 Season Pass.
Rock the jailhouse
Far Cry 4's Escape from Durgesh Prison isn't content to throw a new weapon or ability your way and let you go to town on familiar enemies - y'know, the standard DLC shtick. Instead, it takes the opposite route: protagonist Ajay Ghale and his co-op buddy Hurk find themselves locked up in the eponymous prison, completely stripped of all their weaponry. But that's not the worst of it. With no friendly places to mend his wounds nearby, if Ajay gets taken out, he's done for.
That's right, Escape from Durgesh Prison introduces permadeath to the open-world shooter, meaning you'll have to play cautiously and learn from your mistakes if you're ever going to complete your grand exodus.
