At the conclusion of the gameplay reveal of the title, Ubisoft has announced the new release date of Far Cry 6, which comes after an initial postponement to a later date.
The “Gameplay Deep Dive Trailer” shown today, visible at the bottom of the news, gave us the opportunity to take a new look at the game, which we had last seen this summer. In the same gameplay trailer, the developers revealed new details about Far Cry 6.
As Yara Dani Rojas’ former military man, players will be catapulted into the guerrilla movement as the brutality of Antón’s regime reaches new heights and the fire of revolution ignites the country.
Players can choose to play as the female or male version of Dani, and will join forces with a colorful cast of characters, including Clara Garcia, leader of the revolutionary group Libertad, or Juan Cortez, a cynical former KGB spy and master of the guerilla, as they fight to annihilate the tyrant.
To overcome the enormous power of Antón’s army, players will need to adopt the spirit of “resolver”, a common philosophy for Yara and based on resourcefulness, making sure to use whatever they have at their disposal to wreak havoc on the regime.
Fueled by the creativity of resolver genius Juan Cortez, Far Cry 6 includes a large and unexpected arsenal of resolver weapons and tools. From a minigun powered by a motorcycle engine to a missile backpack, pushing the “resolver” spirit to the limit will give Dani the power of an entire army.
Far Cry 6 will give players unprecedented freedom to allow them to enjoy the game however they want by supporting their style of play, whether they prefer a stealth approach or a force-based approach. In addition to resolver options, players will be able to use traditional weapons and adopt new ways to traverse the map, such as horses, tanks and crazy DIY vehicles. They can also team up with new animal companions like Chorizo, the adorable dachshund no soldier can resist, or Guapo, Juan’s soldier-hungry crocodile.
In solo or two-player co-op modes, players will explore a vast open-world full of contrasts, from lush jungles to decaying cities. With Antón’s army controlling the skies, roads and sea, players will act as hidden guerrilla camps around the country, gathering soldiers and resources as they plan their next move. Players will have to explore the world and face situations like real guerilla soldiers to make sure every blow against the regime is successful.
Fans who pre-order Far Cry 6 will have access to the “Libertad Pack” which includes the “Libertad Outfit” for Chorizo and the innovative “Discos Loco”, an armed disc launcher that will make enemies dance on their graves. Far Cry 6 players on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade their version to the next-gen at no additional cost on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
In addition, the 26 cm tall standalone Ubicollectible figurine “Lions of Yara”, which portrays Antón Castillo, president and leader of Yara, and his teenage son Diego, can be pre-ordered from the Ubisoft Store. Includes a unique code that unlocks a weapon charm in Far Cry 6, the “Lion of Yara”.
Far Cry 6 will release on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Google Stadia on October 7, 2021.
