After several previous leaks, Ubisoft has officially announced Far Cry 6 as part of the forward show, showing a Cinematic trailer. In the end, there weren’t too many surprises, as the release date, as well as the first details and trailer were leaked throughout the week.
Far Cry 6 will release on February 18, 2021, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. At the same time, the title will conquer the two next-gen consoles of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
The trailer posted at the bottom of this article shows the intro of the shooter, in which Castillo presses a sharp grenade into his son Diego’s hand and shows the pupil the violent uprisings on the streets of the capital.
Far Cry 6 sends you to Yara, a frozen tropical paradise that got stuck somewhere in the 1950s due to international sanctions. Here you will meet the dictator Antón Castillo, who wants to bring his nation back to its former glory by all means. At the same time, his son Diego is to follow in his bloody footsteps.
As a player, you take on the role of Dani Rojas, who is part of the resistance movement against Yara’s dictatorial president. In Far Cry 6, you can choose between a male and a female character that you can customize. This time, your character can also be seen in dialogues and cutscenes.
