Navid Khavari, the narrative director of Far Cry 6, the eighth chapter of the famous Ubisoft action-adventure video game series, said that new narrative methods will be introduced in the title to make the game experience more immersive, including the use of cutscene with a third-person view.
The narrative sector, in fact, would seem to be ready for important changes compared to the previous chapters of the series, of which, however, at the moment no further information has been released.
In that sense, Khavari stated the following in an interview with Game Rant:
“When we went and looked and did our research, when you’re looking at a guerrilla revolution, it’s so personal. To be so swept up in that, you need to feel it and understand where that character came from, and what brought them to be pushed so far that they have to pick up a rifle and actually fight. It came from a story point of view. I think what’s exciting for us is that you’re going to be able to see Dani in the third person, in cinematics and other elements of the game, and during that it became almost a necessity to have a fully voiced and performance captured character.”
The director also touched on the subject of male/female protagonist and also on the element of choice in the single-player game:
“I think what was important to us was the idea that you can approach the story and the world from any angle. We have a massive open world. We’re talking about a country with a capital city, which is a first for the brand. And it was very important for us, in terms of how you approach the story, if you wanted to start on one part of the island, or you wanted to start on the other side of the island, the story would adapt to how you approach it.”
We remind you that Far Cry 6 has been officially announced through a trailer at Ubisoft Forward, and that the presence of Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad. Better Call Saul, The Mandalorian) will boast in the cast, in the role of a powerful dictator. The official release of the title is scheduled for 18 February 2021 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Google Stadia, and the next generation consoles of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
