As expected, Ubisoft has therefore announced and presented Far Cry 6 and in passing revealed many details as well as three videos that you will tell us about. Without forgetting a very fixed release date. So where do we start … Hmmmm … Anyway.

Well, it’s good that I made my choice: Far Cry 6 is therefore released October 7, 2021 worldwide on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and on PCs exclusively in the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store, but also on Google Stadia and Amazon Luna when it is launched in France. The game will also be available on Ubisoft +, Ubisoft’s now popular subscription service.
Long live the revolution!
Ubisoft obviously took the opportunity to give us more information about this new video game “opus” they say. Instead, read how:
Far Cry 6 plays Yara, a tropical paradise in the heart of the Caribbean. Players will discover the intensity and chaos associated with the battles of a gurilla … The revolution is indeed under way to free the Yaran people from the oppressive rule of their dictator Antn Castillo, played by Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) and his young son Diego, played by Anthony Gonzalez (Coco). The development of Far Cry 6 is operated by Ubisoft Toronto.
You play the role of Dani Rojas, a resident of Yara who gave up her military uniform to join the gurilla when “the brutality of Antn Castillo’s reign reaches new heights and the fire of revolution sets the country on fire”. It will then be possible to choose between Dani in the guise of a man or a woman, you will understand, and “atypical” characters like Clara Garcia, the leader of the revolutionary group Libertad, or Juan Cortez, a disappointed former KGB spy (like …) and a seasoned gurillero, both aiming to free Yara from her tyrant.
Ubisoft also tells us that “in order to triumph over the overwhelming power of Antn’s weapon, players must adopt the” resolver “mentality, An ingenious and typical philosophy of Yara, which consists in using all possible and imaginable means to sow chaos within the regime
Of course, there is a large selection of weapons and do-it-yourself tools at your disposal, which are always customizable and range from a “sulfate machine equipped with a motorcycle engine to search heads for backpack launchers and missiles”. In short, something to have fun and cause a lot of damage.
Dachshund on wheels and pet crocodile
Ubisoft assures us that Far Cry 6 offers players “unprecedented freedom allowing them to progress at will in the game, be it through infiltration or through a more frontal approach”. That’s good to know, my belief. More traditional weapons are on the program as well as various means of transport such as Horses, character and also customizable vehicles. Four legged companions are also there to help you out, like chorizo, an adorable one Dachshund on wheels or Good looking, Juan’s companion crocodile, devourer of soldiers!
As expected, single player or co-op two play is possible in a vast and varied world with lush jungles or oppressed cities and even on the verge of ruin. “With Antn’s weapon controlling the air, the streets and the seas, players must operate from hidden gurilla camps scattered across the country, raising troops and resources as they plan their next attacks.”
Pre-order and bonus as usual
Players who pre-order Far Cry 6 will have access to Freedom package This includes a “Libertad” outfit for Chorizo and “Discos Locos,” the advanced disc launcher turned into a formidable weapon that enemies can use to dance on their own graves. Players who receive Far Cry 6 on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 can get their version of the game on Xbox Series X | at no additional cost Update S and PlayStation 5.
Finally, the 26 cm high Ubicollectibles figure “Lions of Yara”, which depicts the dictator Antn Castillo and his little son Diego, can also be pre-ordered in the Ubisoft Store. This minifigure contains a unique code that players can use to unlock the weapon spell “Yara’s Lion” in the game.
There it is.
