“Our country is like this grenade… you must clutch our people nice and tight or we all go boom.” – Anton Castillo. During Ubisoft Forward, Ubisoft announced that Far Cry 6 is currently in development and will release on the 18th of February 2021 on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, as well as on UPLAY+, Ubisoft’s subscription service.
Far Cry 6 – new setting, same game?
Far Cry 6 plunges players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. President Anton Castillo (Esposito) vows to restore his country to its former glory while grooming his son Diego (Gonzalez) to follow in his footsteps.
Yet paradise has a price, and enriching his country means subjugating those who don’t adhere to his vision. In this island nation in turmoil, players will experience the adrenaline and chaos of guerrilla combat as they are swept up in a revolutionary movement to take down a tyrant.
This cinematic title was full of that signature ambience that the team always brings to each new Far Cry and with it came all the pros and cons of the series. I will say the graphics on show were impressive. Esposito himself looked mightily impressive. I actually had a double-take to figure out whether he was real or an in-game cinematic (in-game cinematic by the way)
