Ahead of E3, Ubisoft dropped a ton of information and details about Far Cry 6, including a release. The highly anticipated next installment in the open-world action franchise will drop on October 7, and it looks like it will pack an explosive punch.
Far Cry 6 takes us to Yara, a tropical paradise reminiscent of Cuba (although the narrative director says the game isn’t a political statement). You’ll play as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran who ultimately joins the revolution to liberate people from the oppressive regime of dictator Anton Castillo and his son Diego. Remember, this isn’t a political statement. Before we get into the gameplay, check out the character feature introducing Dani Rojas.
As for the gameplay of Far Cry 6, it looks like a wild time. The Far Cry games have always been action-packed adventures, but Far Cry 6 kicks it up a notch. The game emphasizes guerrilla warfare as you fight to take down this oppressive regime. And you’ll have to be smart about it.
A deep dive into the gameplay of Far Cry 6 outlines the various rules of guerrilla warfare. The first rule is remembering to stay hidden. Scattered across Yara are hidden camps where the liberation movement operate out of. Here, the guerrillas live, train and plan.
From jungles to shorelines to dead end towns to the capital city, Yara is truly an immersive, open-world environment that’s waiting for you to explore. And navigating the tropical island is an adventure in itself. Do you play it safe by taking backroads and hidden paths? Or do you go with the more risky route and operate right in plain view of Castillo’s soldiers?
Whichever route you choose, you’ll almost certainly wind up in a situation where you are outnumbered.
In Far Cry 6 you’ll have to embrace the spirit of the “resolver,” making use of whatever you can find around you — from sardine canes to batteries to cd players — to bring down the regime. This is Far Cry 6’s way of embracing weapon customization, and it looks absolutely awesome. The game will also offer the ability to customize cars as well.
And then, of course, there are “Supremo” backpacks. This are enhanced backpacks that provide certain specialties for combat, whether it be a flamethrower or a jetpack.
Far Cry 6 looks like an insane time and I can’t wait to play it. The game will be release on October 7, 2021.
