In Far Cry 6, players will assume the role of Dani Rojas (players can choose Dani's gender- Male or Female), a guerilla fighter who has taken up the responsibility of liberating the island of Yara from the clutches of a fascist dictator, Anton Castillo (portrayed by Giancarlo Esposito).

From machine guns built using motorcycle engines to flamethrowers and grenade launchers, Dani will wield a variety of weapons in the fight to topple Anton and his tyrannical rule. The game also features a CD launcher whose function is pretty straightforward, launch razor-sharp CD's to slice through enemies. Far Cry 6 also offers several choices for travelling around Yara.
