PlayStation owners in the US, as well as Xbox and PC players worldwide, will be able to play the first Far Cry 4 DLC campaign from today. It comes as part of the season pass or a separate $9.99 download, and features a few twists on the Far Cry formula. It should be available on the European PS store tomorrow.
The first of those is that you’re under a time limit – you’ve got 30 minutes to get to the extraction point – and the second is much more interesting: permadeath. That’s right: die in the game, and you die in real life. No, wait: die in the game, and you’ll be put back to the start and have to try to complete it again.
To me, that doesn’t sound exciting – I die a lot in Far Cry – but for some, they’ll love the challenge and the new dimension that the DLC brings. You’ll be able to play it in co-op, too, which is probably advised.
