Far Cry 6, the next new addition to Ubisoft’s long series of open world features, is in the fictional Caribbean nation of Yara, whose people are armed against its ruler, Antón Castillo, played by Giancarlo Esposito. You, as a revolutionary named Dani Rojas, will join the revolt, aided by a Weiner dog in a wheelchair named Chorizo. This isn’t particularly relevant to a broad narrative landscape, but hey, just look at this little guy.
As for the actual game, Far Cry 6 remains a mystery, but on the first Friday, May 28th we will do it right, in a live stream that will start at 9:30 am PT / 12:30 pm ET. Far Cry's basic loop is pretty well established at the moment, but Ubisoft has suggested that focusing on verticality in Yara's capital, Esperanza, "completely changes the game" and maybe even a bit like Assassin & # 39; 39; s Creed.
“Being able to run on rooftops, use back alleys, fight some of the toughest opponents in the game in this environment, I think it’s really unique and fresh,” said narrative director Navid Khavari he said in 2020. "And it completely changes the feel of the game."
I'm looking forward to seeing if Far Cry 6 really changes things significantly, but I'm a little surprised that Ubisoft is serving it on Friday, just two weeks before its big E3-style Ubisoft Forward showcase event, which s & # 39; set June 12. Maybe that means we shouldn’t set our expectations too high.
The release date for Far Cry 6 has not been released, but is expected to be released later this year.
