Far Cry 6 was announced in 2020 at the Ubisoft Forward Event. It was not until May 2021 that we learned about the release date and the gameplay.
Far Cry 6 is a political game
The game is set on the island of Yara and it’s up to Dani Rojas, the player character, to liberate the island from a fascist dictator Anton Castillo and his men. There are a number of weapons at Dani’s disposal like a flamethrower, CD launcher, machine guns, and more.
With this game, Ubisoft is also bringing back the ‘Fangs for Hire’ feature that will allow players to hire various animals for different jobs like Chorizo the dog to transport equipment, and a crocodile that can attack enemies on command.
Shortly after the release date was revealed, game’s narrative director Navid Khavari confirmed that Far Cry 6 is a political game. “What players will find is a story that’s point-of-view attempts to capture the political complexity of a modern, present-day revolution within a fictional context. We have attempted to tell a story with action, adventure, and heart, but that also isn’t afraid to ask hard questions,” he said.
The game is releasing on October 7, 2021, on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, Stadia. It is available for pre-order through Ubisoft’s website.
