One of the most significant revelations made at the Ubisoft Forward event was undoubtedly Far Cry 6. The game was postponed during the COVID-19 epidemic, but Ubisoft has recently revealed it again with a wealth of additional details regarding the game’s world and gameplay mechanics.
Even though a new instalment in this well-known franchise isn’t particularly surprising, the franchise’s devoted fan base is thrilled about it. However, Far Cry 6 is ratcheting up the action in some intriguing ways in an effort to win over new fans and give the franchise new life after Far Cry 5 seemed to be more of the same. Here is what we currently know.
Far Cry 6’s Plot Follows the Fight Against a Dictator, Played by Giancarlo Esposito
The unveiling trailer for the upcoming Far Cry game has a fascinating adversary as usual. Giancarlo Esposito, an Emmy Award nominee, is in the limelight this time. Esposito is one of today’s most terrifying villains and stars in Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and The Mandolorian. Esposito plays El Presidente Anton Castillo, a despot who is raising his son Diego to one day succeed him. The people of the island of Yara are ferociously fighting to retake it from Castillo’s brutal control, and the island is engulfed in revolution. Castillo is determined to use any means necessary to keep the people, or “his people,” under lock and key, and he is eager to teach his son how to do it.
Both a male and female character, Dani Rojas, can be controlled by the players. With a variety of weapons and eccentric creatures, such as Chorizo the two-legged wiener dog, Dani will fight back against Castillo’s military government. From the jungles to the streets of the nation’s capital, Esperanza, you’ll fight for freedom throughout the tropical island setting of Yara. In spite of existing in a world that is modernising all around it, Yara promises to bring a Cubano-themed setting with retro 1950s architecture and vibes that have endured in this Caribbean paradise.
Far Cry 6’s Gameplay and Weapon-Improvisation System
First-person shooters are what Far Cry 6 and its predecessors are all about. Dani Rojas will saunter around the Yama mountains, beaches, and jungles in quest of more allies, hidden information, and enemy platoons. The first photos showed off a gorgeously drawn Caribbean island for players to explore as well as some of the weaponry they can find there. We can now see how far Ubisoft has taken this franchise thanks to the numerous gameplay trailers that have been made available.
Far Cry 6 is turning the tension up to eleven with lethal CD launchers, pet alligators, rocket launcher backpacks, and pet alligators. One of the assault guns Rojas employs has a sardine can-made improvised red dot attached to the upper receiver. The weapon improvisation mechanism in Far Cry 6 lets players create new weapons out of commonplace objects. Motorcycle motors are transformed into miniguns, while tuna cans are used as drum magazines. This concept is based on the Cuban mentality known as “resolver,” which means “to get by.” On Yara, 49 different weapons are available for users to use and customise their adventure.
Far Cry 6 Release Date and Platform Details
Release date for Far Cry 6 is slated for October 7, 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a delay in the game’s release, which was originally scheduled for February 7. All current- and next-generation consoles, as well as PC, Stadia, and this game will all be supported. If players purchase the game initially for Xbox One or PlayStation 4, they can upgrade it for free to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions if they upgrade their consoles. The base game and the Season Pass with all the downloadable content are both included in the Gold Edition.
The main game, the Season Pass, and the Ultimate Pack—which includes the Vice, Croc Hunter, and Jungle Expedition packs—are all included in the Ultimate Edition. Everything listed above is included in the Collector’s Edition along with a few additional collectible trinkets. Fans of Far Cry can expand their collections by purchasing a high-end replica of the “Tostador.” The flamethrower in this game is a seven-part construct that, when put together, measures 72 cm. Tobatron, an artist, provided the illustrations for the assembly instructions, and he also designed a special collector’s case based on his recognisable aesthetic. A special steelbook, a 64-page artbook, 10 stickers, a keychain featuring Chorizo, a map of Yara, and a chosen soundtrack complete the Collector’s Edition.
Players can access exclusive content, such as the Libertad costume for Chorizo and the Discos Locos, a weaponized disc launcher, by pre-purchasing the game.
