Far Cry 6 Release Date And Official Details Revealed
Ubisoft has officially revealed details about the new series of the Far Cry game franchise — Far Cry 6. the first-person Shooter will be released on February 18, 2021, for current and next-generation consoles, Windows, as well as the game streaming service Google Stadia.
This time, the game will take place on the island of Yara, located somewhere in the Caribbean. Obviously, the creators of Far Cry 6 were inspired, first of all, by Cuba and the story of the overthrow of the regime of Fulgencio Batista by the "July 26 Movement" under the leadership of Fidel Castro. The player will lead the resistance to "El Presidente" Anton Castillo-a dictator who brutally suppresses the attempts of the guerrillas to end his rule and try to return power to the hands of the people.
Castillo in Far Cry 6 is "played" by Giancarlo Esposito, best known for playing the ruthless leader of a drug cartel in the TV series "Breaking Bad." The creators of the game decided to add depth to the image of the villain-dictator by adding his teenage son Diego to the plot, from which Anton Castillo hopes to grow a worthy successor.
In the beginning, the player will be able to choose the gender of their character named Dani Rojas, while Ubisoft promised to carefully work out his identity — for example, all dialogues with his/her participation will be voiced. As in previous games in the series, in Far Cry 6, you can create your own weapons, use a variety of vehicles (including horses) and hire fighters to your team. Moreover, even animals can become partners – for example, a charming Dachshund named Chorizo, whose hind legs are replaced by a homemade wheelchair. There is also a mode of the paired passage of the game.
Yara in Far Cry 6 is not just a tropical island; the area of the game space is larger than in all previous series of the franchise. There was room for jungles, coastal villages, and large urban areas. The largest city in the game is the capital, Esperanza, which the revolutionaries are trying to capture.
The developers wanted to convey the specific flavor of Cuba, which has long been economically cut off from the "first world" countries due to sanctions. In Yara, too, "time has stopped," so all the cars, weapons, and equipment seem to have been transferred there from the 60s of the last century.
As told in Ubisoft, the game was developed for more than four years, starting before the release of Far Cry 5. Feel the atmosphere of a guerrilla war against a dictator who enslaved the people should help the trailer, made in the spirit of screensavers for modern TV series by the same Studio that made screensavers for HBO's "Westworld."
