Far Cry 6 Release Date Leaked on PlayStation Store, Free PlayStation 5 Upgrade & Settings Confirmed

The next game in the Ubisoft franchise Far Cry 6 has been leaked on the PlayStation Store. The title is listed there together with the price and product description. There is also talk of an upgrade to the PS5 version.

In recent days, the indications of the upcoming unveiling of Far Cry 6 have increased. And while Ubisoft remains silent, Sony went on the offensive on the official PlayStation Store. The title is now listed there along with the release date and product description. The release of Far Cry 6 is therefore expected on February 18, 2021.

Upgrade to the PS5 version: The product page on the Hong Kong PlayStation Store not only gives general information about the game. An upgrade from the PS4 to the PS5 version is also mentioned there. The changeover should be offered free of charge, but apparently only at a later date. Players who pre-order Far Cry 6 will be particularly rewarded and will receive an additional weapon, for example.

In the further course of the product description it is roughly translated from the Chinese language: “Welcome to Yala, a tropical paradise whose time has been frozen. As the dictator of Yara, Anton Castileroux wants to bring his nation back to its former glory by all means, with his son Diego to follow in his bloody footsteps. Your ruthless oppression has sparked a revolution.”

The dictator is probably played by Giancarlo Esposito. There were rumors of his involvement in advance.

The new setting of Far Cry 6 would be a return to the roots of the series after Far Cry 5 and Far Cry: New Dawn offering interesting twists and turns in North America. In addition, the description claims that Far Cry 6 includes the “most extensive playground” of any Far Cry titles to date.

Recall that, Far Cry 6 will release on February 18, 2020, according to the leaked details provided above.
