Far Cry 4 Season Pass Includes Exclusive Missions, Multiplayer Mode, & Yetis

Ubisoft has announced the details for the Far Cry 4 Season Pass, which will allow holders access to a new day one mission that can be completed either solo or in co-op, the Hurk Deluxe pack which adds an additional five missions again for solo or co-op play. Season Pass holders will also get access to a multiplayer mode called Overrun, where two teams battle over various points on the map. There’s also a pack called Valley Of The Yetis, where you have to survive in a frozen ridge while looking out for the beast. The pack is priced at £23.99, and will be available from launch.

Full details below.

  • 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.

  1. So with the price of new PS4 games hovering around £40-45 and staying that way for a lot longer than PS3 games, and an extra £24 for the rest of the game, I think they’ve just made my decision for me. Buy it sometime next year when it finally drops in price, or has the whole game included.

    I think that’s going to happen a lot for the next year or so. Not like there’s going to be a shortage of games, so anything with a “season pass” can wait.

    • I’m completely priced out of this gen gaming at the moment.

    • Same here, fella. Reading that list has me very disappointed in this situation. Whilst I might pick up Far Cry 4 relatively early on – we’ll see – there’s no way I want to be shelling out for this as well. Sod that.

  2. Yeah the price is pretty ridiculous. That’s about half of the full game for some content which feels like 1/10 of the game. I get season passes is a way for publishers to earn extra money on games, instead of network passes or higher game prices, which has been steady for quite some years, but half of the full game, feels way to much.

  3. Season passes should be a way for people to pay a bit more to extend a game they’ve enjoyed. Locking day one content away for season pass holders is a bit dodgy.

    And it’s expensive – but still, not as expensive as Destiny’s season pass.

    Also – the idea that so much DLC is now co-op or multiplayer based reduces the value (or prospect of) the traditional GOTY edition. How busy are the servers going to be when/if the GOTY edition launches?

  4. I’ll pass…get it? Like many I’ll wait until it comes down in price or a complete edition comes out in 12 months time. Publishers and developers need to realise that this sort of behaviour will eventually scare off buyers.

  5. There’s a lot of content there for the season pass it seems, but most people won’t buy the season pass so why restrict the attractiveness and overall package of the game – imagine how good it would be if everyone had these extras from the start, it could even effect reviews scores.

    I want this but as MrYd says, I might wait for the GOTY edition and have all the DLC, and most likely on disc rather than digital which will take up HDD space.

    • Well, it’ll take up HDD space either way with the PS4, since everything gets installed anyway. So that’s not really a benefit.

      And I should make it clear that I’m not against DLC in general, or even season passes. It can be done well. Borderlands 2 had a lot of DLC content. A lot more for your season pass money than Far Cry 4 seems to be getting. I had no problem with that. Even after they did more DLC that wasn’t included in the season pass. Those little chunks of game for a couple of quid? I wish more games did that.

      But £24 for what doesn’t appear to be a huge amount of content? With some of it being available at release? That might just be taking the piss a bit.

      • Oh really, I thought just portions of the data gets installed (at least in some cases), therefore not all DLC would necessarily get installed?

        I was just reiterating your point that the game will most likely get released as a “complete” package. I too don’t have a problem with DLC or Season Passes (the BioShock Infinite one gave a significant discount for example).

        I guess it’s hard to tell how much value this Far Cry content represents without knowing the length of the missions etc; although releasing some of it at release could be deemed like it’s cut from the game!

  6. This is the part were we all go ‘YAY, a season pass, just what we all wanted’.
