An upcoming piece of Far Cry 4 DLC adds a permadeath challenge to the game.
In Escape from Durgesh Prison, Ajay and Hurk wake up after being captured, tortured, and stripped of their weapons in Yuma’s prison. Thrown in the dangerous world of Kyrat without anything to defend themselves, players will complete a series of challenges to find weapons and unlock new skills while trying to reach the extraction point to safety.
Playable in single player and co-op, Escape will keep players running across Kyrat to complete side objectives dictated by Pagan Min to recover their lost weapons and upgrade their gear before a final stand-off with Yuma's forces.
To ramp up the challenge, when players die they must start the mission over again and use the knowledge and skills they gained during their previous run through to help them reach their extraction point successfully.
The escape will be timed and there will be leaderboards available.
Escape from Durgesh Prison will be available from January 13 on Xbox and January 14 on PlayStation and PC, and is included in the game’s Season Pass.
The Season Pass also includes:
◆ The Syringe – Already available 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 Pagan Min does not use its devastating effects on the rebel forces.
◆ 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 the cult as the yetis await their prey…
