Far Cry: New Dawn Announced

Ubisoft takes the stage of The Game Awards 2018 to announce Far Cry: New Dawn in a post-nuclear playground.

Just a day before the event of The Game Awards 2018, developer/publisher Ubisoft decided to drop a teaser for their next ambitions chapter of Far Cry series, which is one of their most critically-lauded franchises of first-person shooter titles.

The internet was quick to point out the teaser trailer probably is hinting at the endings of Far Cry 5, the latest standalone title in the series and guess what? They were actually right. The newest standalone sequel to FC5 is announced, titled Far Cry: New Dawn.

Hope County is not anything like you used to know before and turned into something entirely different. Seventeen years after a nuclear meltdown, the world has changed and this direct sequel to previous installment actually comes back in a vibrant new world.

You'd think that a world-ending level of catastrophe will leave the place in dust but nature worked its magic and bounced back a colorful superbloom to the place. A new community is build but it is threatened by a scavenger's gang called Highwaymen led by twin sisters, Mickey and Lou.

When the unforeseen event took place, the twins were just kids and they learned about the harsh reality of growing up in a wasteland frontier. They formed this vicious gang of like-minded looters who lives life like there is no tomorrow.

These nomadic savages move from one place to another within the countryside, take resources for themselves from anywhere they can find and kills or take people into the group when they came across in way of their journey.

Doing what they do in general, they finally arrived back in Hope County and the survivors of the ruined town would need help from players to withstand the tyrannical oppression the Highwaymen are about to inflict on them.

Aside from shooting guns, you will need to work with the survivors to make a Homebase, where you craft makeshift weapons and train hired guns and fangs like Timber as you have before as Boomer. You are back into the Mad Max-esque world if you are wondering.

Currently scheduled to release on February 15, 2019, Far Cry: New Dawn will see launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for the price of $39.99 only. Explore and survive in a post-apocalyptic world to re-purpose resources for leading a fight against the marauders.

On surface, the game seems to have a smaller-scale premise even for a sequel, something similar to the spin-off release Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. What we can see so far is that it looks like a newly designed Fallout game foundation with revamped elements of RAGE 2.
