Another trailer for Far Cry 6 dropped during the Xbox & Bethesda E3 2021 Showcase, giving us another look at the crazy over the top action of the open world first person shooter. There’s even a flying car! Check it out:
Yesterday the Far Cry 6 Season Pass was 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 going to bre remastered and is part of the season pass.
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.
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:
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.
