Far Cry 6 announced
Open world shooter is coming to current and next gen consoles
Ubisoft has announced that Far Cry 6 is currently in development and will release February 18, 2021.
With performances from Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul, The Boys, The Mandalorian) joined by Anthony Gonzalez (Coco), a score created by film and television composer Pedro Bromfman (Narcos), and an opening sequence directed by Emmy Award winner Patrick Clair (Westworld, True Detective), Far Cry 6 promises Hollywood-calibre talent to bolster the narrative.
Developed by Ubisoft Toronto, Far Cry 6 takes players into a modern-day guerrilla revolution set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. President Antón Castillo (Esposito) vows to restore his country to its former glory while grooming his son Diego (Gonzalez) to follow in his footsteps.
Players will be able to play as either male or female Dani Rojas, a local Yaran swept up in a revolution against Antón Castillo. As Dani, players will become a guerrilla fighter and explore and unite an entire island nation, from jungles to Yara’s capital city Esperanza.
There will be a few editions of the game to choose from. The Gold Edition will include the base game and the Season Pass. The Ultimate Edition will include the base game, the Season Pass, and the Ultimate pack, which includes Jungle Expedition pack, the Croc Hunter pack, and the Vice pack. Lastly, The Collector’s Edition will include the base game, Season Pass, the Ultimate pack, a display model of the flamethrower from the game, a “How to Assemble” one-pager artwork illustrated by artist Tobatron, a unique Collector’s Case, an exclusive Steelbook, a 64-page Artbook, a set of 10 stickers, a Chorizo keyring, a map and a selected Soundtrack of the Game.
Fans who pre-order Far Cry 6 will get access to the Libertad Pack which includes the “Libertad Outfit” for Chorizo and the “Discos Locos”, a weaponized disc launcher that will make enemies dance on their own graves.
Far Cry 6 will be released on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. Fans who purchase on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade their version on a next-gen platform at no additional cost.
