Ubisoft has officially announced when Far Cry 6 will be releasing this October.
When the game was announced at Ubisoft Forward last July, it was scheduled for a Februrary 2021 release. Then in October 2020, the game was delayed to sometime in Ubisoft’s Fiscal Year 2021-22 (i.e between April 2021 and March 2022).
According to Ubisoft, here’s what the game is about:
Far Cry 6 plunges players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. President Antón Castillo (Giancarlo Esposito) vows to restore his country to its former glory while grooming his son Diego (Anthony 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.
In the new game, you’ll play as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran and military dropout as they get swept up in the guerrilla movement against Antón. Like previous Ubisoft games, you’ll have the choice of playing as a male or female Dani.
The game features a number of ways to play with each mission, including steathly or forceful. There’s also plenty of animal companions like Chorizo, the adorable wiener dog no soldier can ignore or Guapo, Juan’s soldier-hungry pet crocodile.
You can play the game either solo or in two-player co-up to explore the vast open tropical world of Yara.
Far Cry 6 is launching on October 7th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S ,PS4, PS5, Stadia, Amazon Luna and PC (via Epic Game Store, Ubisoft Store or Ubisoft+).
