So, I hear that this Far Cry 4 game is going to be pretty violent. Lots of guns, traps, wild animals, and hooligans all wrapped up into a massive 15-60 hour open-world campaign. Sounds like a dream come true for psychopaths. For a game that massive and chaotic, though, it's going to need something special to get me to purchase even more content.
That's when Ubisoft dropped the word "yetis."
Seriously, if a game takes place in a Himalaya-esque region, you have to have abominable snowmen to interact with. Do you hunt them? Do they hunt you? Do you run jobs for them? Or do you just run from them? I'm getting flashbacks to the Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire Wampa attack back from the Nintendo 64 days. I hope they are on our side!
Prison Breaks, drug smuggling, gun laundering, you don't have to tempt me any more with further violent criminal acts, Ubisoft. You had me at "Valley of the Yetis." My only question is "Do they bounce?" For $29.99, the price of the season pass in the United States, they certainly better!
For full details on the season pass, check out Ubisoft's description 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.

• 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…
