This past Friday, Ubisoft showcased some Far Cry 6 gameplay, in addition to revealing the release date for the next instalment in the series.
There’s always been a degree of weird or silly in the Far Cry series, but this next one seems to be really running with it and turning the crazy up to 11.
We’ve got a new villain in the form of Antón Castillo and his teenage son Diego, portrayed by the brilliant Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) and Anthony Gonzalez (Coco). Set in the fictional country of Yara, which is located in the heart of the Caribbean, players will join the revolution in order to liberate the Yaran people and bring Castillo’s oppressive rule to an abrupt end.
Players will assume the role of Dani Rojas, a local Yaran and military dropout who gets swept up in the guerilla movement as they attempt to take down the tyrannical dictator.
Based on the gameplay trailer, it seems that as is usually the case, players will meet and ally with a host of interesting characters. Additionally, players will embrace the “resolver” spirit where the guerillas use anything and everything to inflict chaos on the regime. This definitely seems to be the case where the weapons are concerned, with vehicles also having a fair amount of customisation options. Also, there’s a cute little pupper!
If you want to check out the gameplay trailer that was shown, you can have a gander at the video below:
There’s also one that focuses specifically on Dani Rojas, and as was previously mentioned, is who players will be controlling throughout the game. You can check that out below:
Far Cry 6 looks like the standard Far Cry experience but with an overdose of chaos. Honestly, it looks like a lot of fun! Far Cry 6 will be out on 7 October 2021 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Google Stadia.
