San Francisco - French video game giant Ubisoft on Thursday announced that a new instalment in its blockbuster Far Cry franchise is set for release in November.

Far Cry 4 was billed as the most expansive and immersive version yet of the open-world, first-person shooter game that has earn legions of fans.

"Following the success of Far Cry 3, we wanted to take the franchise to the next level and create a game that will surprise players and exceed fans' expectations," said executive producer Dan Hay.

"Given the unique setting, we feel Far Cry 4 will stand out."

The previous version of the game, which hit the market at the end of 2012, has reportedly sold more than nine million copies.

While that game played out on a tropical island, the story in Far Cry 4 is set in a fictional region of the Himalayas serving as a stronghold for a self-appointed despot.

Versions of the game for play on current and previous generation Xbox or PlayStation consoles, as well as on computers powered by Windows software, will be released in the US on 18 November and in Europe two days later, according to Ubisoft.
