Ubisoft has announced that Far Cry 6 will release on the 7th of October worldwide. It will debut on past and present Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Also, it will be releasing on the Stadia, Amazon Luna and for PC exclusively on both the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. The game will also be available on Ubisoft+, Ubisoft’s subscription service.
Set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time in the heart of the Caribbean, players will experience the adrenaline rush and chaos of guerrilla combat as they join the revolution to liberate Yaran people from the oppressive rule of dictator Antón Castillo and his teenage son Diego – brought to life by Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) and Anthony Gonzalez (Coco). Development for Far Cry 6 is being led by Ubisoft Toronto.
As local Yaran and military dropout Dani Rojas, players will be swept up in the guerrilla movement as the brutality of Antón’s rule reaches new heights. Players will also be able to choose to play Dani as female or male. Not only that players can join forces with a colourful cast of characters. These include Clara Garcia, the leader of revolutionary group Libertad. There is also Juan Cortez, a jaded ex-KGB spy and guerrilla master.
To succeed against the overwhelming power of Antón’s army, players will embrace the “resolver” spirit, a philosophy of resourcefulness found across Yara, making use of everything and whatever they have to inflict chaos on the regime.
Fueled by the creativity of “resolver” mastermind Juan Cortez, Far Cry 6 features a broad and unexpected arsenal of customizable “resolver” weapons and tools. From a motorcycle engine powered minigun to a homing missile throwing backpack, pushing the “resolver” spirit to the limit will grant Dani the power of an entire guerrilla army.
A new setting, a new war
Far Cry 6 gives players unprecedented freedom to experience the game the way they want by supporting their playstyle. Whether players prefer a stealthy or forceful approach. In addition to resolver options, players will be able to pick traditional weapons and use new ways to traverse the world such as horses, tanks and crazy DIY vehicles. They will also be able to pair up with all-new animal companions like Chorizo, the adorable wiener dog. Or if you’re feeling snappy Guapo, Juan’s soldier-hungry pet crocodile is a must-have companion.
In solo or two-player co-op, players will explore a vast and contrasted open world, from lush jungles to decaying cities. With Antón’s army controlling the air, roads, and seas, players will operate from hidden guerrilla camps across the country. You will have to gather soldiers and resources while planning your next move. Also, players will have to navigate the world and approach situations like true guerrilla fighters.
Treasures for fans
Fans who pre-order Far Cry 6 will get access to the “Libertad Pack”. This special edition includes the “Libertad Outfit” for Chorizo and the state-of-the-art “Discos Locos”. This happy little fellow is a weaponized disc launcher that will make enemies dance on their own graves. Fans who purchase Far Cry 6 on Xbox One or PS4 will be able to upgrade their version at no additional cost.
Additionally, there is a standalone Ubicollectibles 26-cm tall figurine “Lions of Yara”. This collectible showcases Antón Castillo, the President and leader of Yara, and his teenage son Diego. It includes a unique code that unlocks a weapon charm in Far Cry 6, the “The Lion of Yara.”
