Ubisoft has officially announced the details of the new Far Cry franchise series – Far Cry 6. Far Cry 6 will release on October 7, 2021, on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S | X, and PC.
A trailer for the Far Cry 6 Season Pass has been leaked to the network ahead of time, which states that players will be able to play as the main villains of the last three parts of the series – Vaas, Pagan Min, and Joseph Seed.
Leaked Season Pass has also been confirmed. In Far Cry 6, you can play as the antagonists of the previous installments of the series: Vaas Montenegro, Pagan Meen, and Joseph Seed. We are not talking about skins for the main game, but about add-ons with villains.
Far Cry 6 – Island of Yara
This time the action of the game will unfold on the island of Yara, located somewhere in the Caribbean. The creators of Far Cry 6 were inspired primarily by Cuba and the story of the overthrow of the Fulgencio Batista regime by the July 26 Movement led by Fidel Castro. The player will lead the resistance of the el presidente Anton Castillo – the dictator, brutally suppressing the attempts of the guerrillas to end his rule and try to return power to the people.
Castillo in Far Cry 6 “plays” Giancarlo Esposito. He is best known for his role as the ruthless leader of the drug cartel on Breaking Bad. The creators of the game decided to add depth to the image of the villain-dictator by adding to the plot his teenage son Diego, from whom Anton Castillo hopes to grow a worthy successor.
What’s different in Far Cry 6
In the beginning, the player will be able to choose the gender of his character named Dani Rojas, while Ubisoft promised to work out his personality more thoroughly. As in previous games in the series, in Far Cry 6, it will be possible to create your weapons, use different vehicles (including horses), and recruit fighters to your team. Moreover, even animals can become partners. For example, a charming dachshund named Chorizo, which replaces its hind legs with a homemade wheelchair. There is also a pairing mode of the game.
Far Cry 6’s Yara is more than just a tropical island. There is more playable space than any previous series in the franchise. There was a place for the jungle, and coastal villages, and large urban areas. The largest city in the game is the capital, Esperanza, which the revolutionaries seek to conquer.
The Cuban Flavor
The developers wanted to convey the specific flavor of Cuba, which was economically cut off from the first world countries for a long time due to the sanctions. In Yara, too, all the cars, weapons, and equipment seemed to transfer there from the 60s of the last century.
According to Ubisoft, the game has been in development for more than four years, having started even before the release of Far Cry 5. Feel the atmosphere of a guerrilla war against a dictator who enslaved the people should be helped by a trailer, made in the spirit of intros to modern TV series by the same studio that made the screensavers for World of the Wild West.
