The games industry’s release calendar is starting to fill up the rest of the year, and the next big game to lock in a date is Far Cry 6. Ubisoft will release the next title in the long -running series on October 7 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Google Stadia. If you buy it on PS4 or Xbox One, you get a free upgrade to each of the current gen versions. The game was supposed to be original come in February, but the impact of COVID-19 forced Ubisoft to delay it.
Rather than wait until its E3 show in a week, the publisher also showed offers a first look at the gameplay. Far Cry 6 set in Yara, a fictional Cuban version, where you stop Dani Rojas (whether the protagonist is male or female. ).
The revolutionaries who lined up with Dani adopted a Cuban philosophy called Resolver, which means “to penetrate.” They use whatever they can to their advantage, which means you use ridiculous DIY weapons. These include guns that use canned sardines, batteries and motorcycle engines. Above all, there’s a deadly CD launcher that plays “Macarena.” By Los del Rio.
You can also equip a backremo Supreme with a special weapon inspired by the book, such as a jetpack, rocket launcher or flamethrower. There are custom cars and horses to help you get around as well.
Even if there are many jungle terrain and beaches to explore, Far Cry 6 has an urban setting, the capital town of Yara Esperanza, for the first time in the series. Esperanza adds a little more verticality to the gameplay, as you can traverse rooftops and literally capture dripping enemies.
Meanwhile, fellow animal Fangs for Hire is out Far Cry 5 returned. Along with the cute Chorizo dog (which can carry equipment using its wheelchair), there is a crocodile shell that can attack enemies at your command. That should make jungle encounters a little treacherous for your opponents.
