Set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time in the heart of the Caribbean, players will experience the adrenaline rush and chaos of guerrilla combat as they join the revolution to liberate Yaran people from the oppressive rule of dictator Antón Castillo and his teenage son Diego – brought to life by Giancarlo Esposito (“The Mandalorian,” “Breaking Bad”) and Anthony Gonzalez (“Coco”). Development for Far Cry 6 is being led by Ubisoft Toronto.
As local Yaran and military dropout Dani Rojas, players will be swept up in the guerrilla movement as the brutality of Antón’s rule reaches new heights and the fire of revolution ignites across the country. Players will be able to choose one of two Dani identities and will join forces with a colorful cast of characters, including Clara Garcia, the leader of revolutionary group Libertad, or Juan Cortez, a jaded ex-KGB spy and guerrilla master as they fight their way to take down the tyrant.
In solo or in two-player co-op, players will explore a vast and contrasted open world, from lush jungles to decaying cities. With Antón’s army controlling the air, roads, and seas, players will operate from hidden guerrilla camps across the country, gathering soldiers and resources while planning their next move. Players will have to navigate the world and approach situations like true guerrilla fighters to make sure every strike against the regime hits hard.
By embracing the Resolver spirit, a philosophy of resourcefulness found across Yara, players will make use of whatever they have to inflict chaos on the regime. Far Cry 6 features a broad and unexpected arsenal of customizable Resolver weapons and tools. From a motorcycle engine-powered minigun to a homing missile throwing backpack, pushing Resolver to the limit will grant Dani the power of an entire guerrilla army.
To succeed against the overwhelming power of Antón’s army, players can customize their weapon loadout to match against enemy strengths. Far Cry 6 gives players unprecedented freedom to experience the game the way they want by supporting their playstyle, whether they prefer a stealthy or forceful approach. In addition to Resolver options, players will be able to pick traditional weapons and use new ways to traverse the world such as horses, tanks and crazy DIY vehicles. They will also be able to pair up with all-new animal companions like Chorizo, the adorable wiener dog no soldier can ignore or Guapo, Juan’s soldier-hungry pet crocodile.
Season Pass holders will be able to switch perspectives and play as some of the series’ most notorious villains: Vaas Montenegro, Pagan Min, and Joseph Seed – all performed by the original cast. Through each of the three Season Pass DLC episodes, players will delve into the minds of these infamous antagonists, uncover their backstories, battle their inner demons, and reunite with familiar faces in a brand-new gameplay experience inspired by the roguelite genre, in which players will have to become strong enough to survive multiple levels of the villain psyche.
Players who purchase Far Cry 6 on Xbox One or PS4 will be able to upgrade their version to the next generation at no additional cost on Xbox Series XS and PlayStation5.
Ubisoft also announced that Far Cry 6: The Music of Yara (from the Original Game Soundtrack) is now available worldwide on all major streaming services. This compilation of 28 tracks of in-game original songs and indie licensed tracks will provide players breathes life into the tropical paradise of Far Cry 6.
