Far Cry is well known for its eccentric villains, and now post-launch plans for Far Cry 6 will allow players to be some of the greatest antagonists of the series. These characters will be playable, returning as part of the game’s season pass content. Ubisoft mentioned this DLC plan as part of Ubisoft Forward E3 showcase today.
Vaas Montenegro, Pagan Min, and Joseph Seed from Far Cry 3, 4, and 5 will be available as playable characters.
Each villain will have their own themed level, which delves into their minds. You survive by unlocking perks and finding new weapons, allowing each character to get stronger. Every death will restart the level from zero, so make sure to absorb as much information about these crazed minds as you can.
The Far Cry 6 Season Pass also includes Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, a spin-off set which imitates a 1980’s action film. Ubisoft says you’ll be able to bring Blood Dragon’s entire arsenal–including weapons, vehicle, and the robo-canine Fang For Hire, K‑9000–back to Far Cry 6’s world of Yara.
“The most important part of crafting a Far Cry villain isn’t the fact that they’re evil or shocking,” Ubisoft Toronto game content director Omar Bouali stated. “It’s that they’re someone that could sit across from you at the dinner table and charm you into thinking that everything that they believe, no matter how twisted or horrifying, could be absolutely true. When creating Anton, we had quite a lot to live up to, because when you think Far Cry, you think about its rich legacy of villains. Our dream was to honor the Far Cry villains’ tradition and introduce a brand-new experience.”
All the original voice actors for these characters have returned, including Michael Mando as Vaas, Troy Baker as Pagan Min, and Greg Bryk as Joseph.
