In a press release, Ubisoft has further expanded on the new piece of DLC, Escape from Durgesh Prison, a time trial in which the player will find themselves in a prison alongside Hurk, without weapons, and they will try to complete challenges, unlock new skills and reach the extraction point to get to safety.
Ubisoft says there will be no savepoints in the mission; “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.”
Far Cry 4 released on November 18th this year, alongside a slew of other AAA games such as GTA 5, Little Big Planet 3 and Dragon Age: Inquisition, and reviewed well all over the board. You can check out TechRaptor’s own review, written by Thomas Nelson, right here
