Far Cry 6 Gameplay and Release Date Revealed

An early PlayStation Store leak from last year revealed that first-person shooter game Far Cry 6 from developer/publisher Ubisoft was originally scheduled to release on February2021 only to get delayed because of COVID-19 pandemic.

Ubisoft moved up FC6 launch window to get more development time and set a date after April 2021. A worldwide gameplay showcase has officially confirmed today that Far Cry 6 is currently scheduled for a release on October 7, 2021.

Ubisoft has also released a gameplay video for Far Cry 6 that offers a good look into combat, story and much more.

Far Cry 6 takes you to a Caribbean island nation of Yara to join a rebellion that seeks to liberate its people from an oppressive rule of its tyrant dictator Anton Castillo, played by actor Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul, The Mandalorian).

Player character and protagonist is a local Yaran named Dani Rojas, who is playable as man or a woman. Hell bent on taking down Anton's regime, Dani seeks out ex-KGB operative Juan Cortez as a mentor for training in guerilla warfare.

Being an ex-military, Dani starts taking lesson from Cortez on guerilla tactics to become a good revolutionary. He strongly emphasizes on operating with stealth, to be an army of one, blending in, mastering environment and be prepared.

Everything at your disposal from batteries, compact disc, sardine cans and more can be used as a weapon. Cortez then introduces Dani to "Supremo" backpacks that hold enough firepower to take on a small army by a solo guerilla fighter.

Dani is reminded to be escorted by a friend for moral support, be it wiener dog named Chorizo or Juan's pet crocodile Guapo. Moreover, revolutionary group Libertad leader Clara Garcia will be there at his/her side against El Presidente.

Juan Cortez takes credit for coming up with a variety of customized weapons including an old motorcycle-engine turned minigun or backpack full of homing-missiles, which are a part of his "Resolver" solution for screwed up situations.

Become One-Person Army

Yara will let you explore largest open-world in any Far Cry game that expands to cities, jungles and towns. Aside from taking cars or walking, players can always jump into a horse, ride a tank or get one of those "Do it yourself" vehicles.

Ubisoft brings back fan-favorite healing animations in upcoming installment of Far Cry for series veterans. Casting popular Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito to play the role of El Presidente Anton Castillo was also a huge power move.

Already up for pre-order, Far Cry 6 will be available in Standard, Gold, Ultimate and Collector's Edition. Every other version will feature FC6 base game along with a number of bonus content, except $120 worth Fangs for Hire Collection.

Far Cry 6 is set to arrive for Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X on February 18, 2021. Buying any version of FC6 on last- generation consoles gets you a free next-gen upgrade for no additional cost.
