As expected during the first Ubisoft Forward of 2020, Far Cry 6 was revealed. It was used to close out the presentation. Much of the leaked information was accurate, especially the release date. Ubisoft confirmed people will be able to play the game on February 18, 2021 on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Google Stadia. Should someone get a PS4 or Xbox One copy, they can upgrade to a next-gen PS5 or Xbox Series X copy for free.
A few details about the game were revealed. Everyone in the game will be someone attempting to fight back against President Anton Castillo, played by Giancarlo Esposito, and his son Diego, played by Anthony Gonzalez. Your avatar is Dani Rojas, who could be a male or female character.
Here’s the first Far Cry 6 trailer, which focuses on Anton and Diego.
Pre-order bonuses and special editions were also discussed following Ubisoft’s reveal. If you pre-order, you get a Chorizo Libertad outfit and a Discos Locos Deadly Disc Launcher weapon. If you get the $99.99 Gold Edition, you get the game and season pass. The $119.99 Ultimate Edition includes everything in the Gold Edition and the Croc Hunter, Jungle Expedition, and Vice Packs. If you get the $199.99 Far Cry 6 Collector’s Edition, then you get everything in the Ultimate Edition, a 64-page art book, 10 stickers, a Tostador Flamethrower replica that’s 72cm long with instructions, a Steelbook case, a “selected game” soundtrack, a Chorizo keychain, and a map of Yara.
Far Cry 6 will come to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Stadia on February 18, 2021.
