Far Cry 6, the latest game in the Far Cry series, will be available October 7, 2021 for Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Stadia, Amazon Luna and Windows PC via the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft store.
Players who purchase Far Cry 6 on current consoles will receive a free next-gen upgrade for Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5. Far Cry 6 will also be part of Ubisoft+, Ubisoft’s subscription service for Windows PC.
Developed by Ubisoft Toronto, Far Cry 6 is set on Yara, a tropical paradise in the heart of the Caribbean that has stood still in time. Players will experience the adrenaline and chaos of guerrilla fighting as they join the revolution to free the Yaran people from the oppressive regime of dictator Antón Castillo and his teenage son Diego – played by Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) and Anthony Gonzalez (Coco). ).
Players will experience the story of Dani Rojas, a local resident of the island and a former soldier. Dani joins the resistance when Antón’s brutal regime reaches new heights and the urge for revolution spreads like wildfire across the island. Players can choose to play as male or female Dani and join a diverse group of characters, including Clara Garcia, the leader of the revolutionary group Libertad, or Juan Cortez, a worn-out ex-KGB spy and guerrilla master.
To confront the overwhelming might of Antón’s army, players must embrace the resolver philosophy: a way of life based on ingenuity and fueled by the creativity of mastermind Juan Cortez. Players are challenged to transform materials they find into unique weapons. An old motorcycle can be converted into a pistol in an instant and a backpack can easily become a rocket launcher with a few adjustments. This resolver philosophy makes Dani an effective one-man army.
Far Cry 6 gives players the freedom to experience the game the way they want, supporting both a stealthy and explosive approach. In addition to the resolver options, players have a wide choice of traditional weapons and new ways to traverse the world, including horses, tanks and crazy DIY vehicles. In addition, players will also get the chance to team up with brand new animals like Chorizo, the adorable dog that no soldier can ignore, or Guapo, Juan’s bloodthirsty crocodile.
The game comes with a solo and co-op mode where players explore Yara’s vast open world; from lush jungles to dilapidated cities. While Antón’s army controls the skies, roads and seas, players operate from hidden guerrilla camps across the country, collecting soldiers and resources and planning their next move. Players navigate the world and approach situations like real guerrilla fighters to ensure that every attack hits the regime hard.
Fans who pre-order Far Cry 6 will get access to the Libertad Pack, which includes the Libertad gear for Chorizo and the cutting-edge Discos Locos, a weaponized disc launcher that lets players make enemies dance on their own graves.
Finally, the exclusive Ubicollectible figurine Lions of Yara (height: 26 cm), featuring Antón Castillo, the president and leader of Yara, and his teenage son Diego, is now available for pre-order on the Ubisoft Store. This figurine comes with a unique code that unlocks an in-game charm, The Lions of Yara, in Far Cry 6.
