Far Cry 6 is a new entry in Ubisoft’s flagship shooter franchise coming to current and next-generation consoles, and it’s set to stand out from previous titles with an ambitious new setting and Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito in the starring role.
Here’s hoping the tried-and-true open-world formula will also be expanded upon, since it definitely needs expanding upon after seldom changing its tune since 2012. Trusted Reviews has compiled everything you need to know about Far Cry 6 including all the latest news, release date, gameplay and more.
Ubisoft has confirmed that Far Cry 6 will launch on February 18, 2021 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC and Stadia.
Far Cry 6 release date – when is it coming out?
Just like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, owners of the game on older consoles will be able to upgrade to next-gen platforms for free. All your saves, progress and achievements/trophies will carry over, too.
Far Cry 6 setting – where does it take place?
Far Cry 6 will take place on the fictional Caribbean Island of Yara, which has been heavily inspired by Cuba. It has been described as “the largest Far Cry playground to date” and a “tropical paradise frozen in time.” So this explains why a tyrannical regime has managed to emerge without the interference of wider civilization.
