The next shooter of Ubisoft, Far Cry 6 is set during the riots trying to remove the evil dictator El Presidente from power. Here are all the details about Far Cry 6, including what is new in this title and its potential ties to Far Cry 3.
Far Cry 6 Release Date
As per the listing of Microsoft Store, Far Cry 6 will launch on 25th May of this year. Ubisoft hasn’t declared anything about this date. No date still has been confirmed for the official release.
Far Cry 6 is Set in The Tropical Nation Yara
According to Ubisoft, a lot of fans were ready for a tropical setting. Esperanza is the capital city, Fry Cry’s first-ever main urban environment, which Ubisoft says will appear somehow different from the previous games.
“The verticality is a complete game-changer,” says narrative director Navid Khavari in an interview. “Being able to run across rooftops, use back alleys, fight against some of the toughest opponents in the game in this setting, I think is really unique and fresh.”
You’ll Play The Character Named Dani Rojas
Players will have to option to choose the male or female character for the game. You’ll hear the in-game voice of the character from either Sean Rey or Nisa Gunduz, it totally depends upon your choice.
“We knew that if we’re going to tell the revolution story, if we’re going to tell a story about someone in a guerrilla movement, you need to have that personal connection with them,” says Khavari. “You need someone who’s rooted in the world, who has a background. So we wanted proper performance capture, we wanted to have a voice.”
The Story of Far Cry 6
Here, you have to fight in a revolution against the rule of Anton Castillo, the dictator of Yara, who is ruling for 50 years. Seeing the trailer, it is clear that the time is very dangerous, you can see the government agents with guns and riot shields and civilians with the explosives.
“When you’re looking at something as complex as an island that’s been essentially cut off from the rest of the world for 50 years, been in an economic downturn, electing this leader on the back of this idea of building a new paradise, the idea with Antón is he definitely lulled people into believing this was the only answer for them. That he was the one that was going to solve all their problems,” Khavari says “And so for us, it became super-interesting on the character side to explore the idea of, you know, there definitely were some people that voted for him, that believed in him, that now are regretting that choice; and there are those that still support him. The intersection of those demographics and worldviews and opinions is something that plays out in the story as well.”
Is Diego is Far Cry 3’s Young Vaas Montenegro?
Fans are suspecting that Far Cry 6 could be a prequel to Far Cry 3. The connection came when it was noticed that both have a scar on their right eyebrow.
Vaas’s voice actor Michael Mando teased a possible return to the role during a Reddit Q&A with fans, saying “Vaas is my spirit animal – having co-created that character is something that will always be dear to me. I still get recognized as Vaas, and I still feel the outpouring of love for that character – makes me very happy. Who knows… maybe I will reprise the role very soon?”
Far Cry 6 will be available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, Stadia, and PC.
