Far Cry 6 Season Pass will let you play as Vaas and other classic villains – Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon remaster teased

The Far Cry 6 Season Pass has been detailed during the E3 2021 Ubisoft Forward stream, with one of the highlights being that you will then be able to play the game as Vaas, Pagan Min and Joseph Seed, the primary antagonists from the last three mainline games. Oh, and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is seemingly making a comeback.

Far Cry 6 will be out on 7th October 2021 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Google Stadia and Amazon Luna.


The Season Pass looks to flip the script from the last three games, putting you in the shoes of the arch villains, and seemingly giving you the chance to win as the bad guys in their stories.

There was also a very quick tease for a Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon remaster.

And we were also treated to a dramatic cinematic from the main game.

Far Cry 6’s primary protagonist is Dani Rojas, a character that’s more than just a silent blank slate. Dani is a military drop out who was all set to leave the island, but has been convinced to join the LIbertad resistance movement, alongside a colourful cast of other rebellious characters.

The game will star Giancarlo Esposito, who’s best known for his role in Breaking Bad, as the main villain. He’s the dictatorial El Presidente of the war-torn tropical paradise of Yara. Esposito’s character, Antón Castillo, rules this land with an iron fist, attempting to restore it to its former glory as a guerrilla revolution rages in the modern day. He hopes that his son, Diego, will follow in his footsteps.

Preview: Far Cry 6 is a guerrilla shooter with a Cuban ‘resolver’ attitude

Announced in July 2020, shortly before the first Ubisoft Forward stream, Far Cry 6 is a revolutionary tale that sees you taking up arms to liberate the Cuban-inspired island of Yara.

A Far Cry 6 gameplay reveal in the build up to E3 this year gave us a good look at how the game is evolving the series. Far Cry 6 is being built on the principle of ‘resolver’, whether that’s how the people of Yara reuse, repair and repurpose everything they can – which can be seen through the world – or the new Resolver weapons and tools, fully customised weapons built out of spare part. These include a motorcycle engine powered minigun all the way through to a homing missile throwing backpack.

It’s wild stuff, as you can see in our preview video:
