It’s been quite some time since the Far Cry 6 was last seen and Ubisoft finally revealed some gameplay on Friday. They also officially announced a release date for the game, which is on October 7th, 2021, for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Google Stadia. The game was supposed to launch in February of this year, but due to delays caused by the pandemic, Ubisoft was forced to push it farther out.
Ubisoft’s E3 showcase is only a couple of weeks away, but instead of just waiting until then, the publisher decided to also share a first look at gameplay. Far Cry 6 is going back to a tropical setting after taking a trip to America back in 2018 with Far Cry 5. Players will be heading to Yara, a fictional Caribbean nation (that has a striking resemblance to Cuba) with some major issues.
You’ll be controlling Dani Rojas, a character which you can make make either male or female. That is up to you. Dani is in cahoots with revolutionaries who have adopted the philosophy of resourcefulness called Resolver. It means “to get by,” and they use anything they can to gain the upper-hand. Of course, in the Far Cry universe, this leads to some rather ridiculous DIY weapons.
This includes guns that use batteries, motorcycle engines, and even sardine cans. There is even a CD launcher that plays Los del Rio’s “Macarena.” You’ll also get a Supremo backpack that has a jetpack, rocket launcher or flamethrower. Custom horses and vehicles also aid you in moving around as well.
For those who are asking, “Where is the Fangs for Hire animal companions?.” Well, don’t fret, because they are making a return. We know so far that there is a cute dog named Chorizo–who transports equipment with its wheelchair–and a domesticated crocodile that will attack enemies on command.
