Far Cry 6 Announced

Ubisoft officially announces Far Cry 6, though word on the new installment in the shooter series leaked out last week. They offer the Cinematic Title Sequence Trailer with the credits for the game confirming the poorly kept secret that the game will star Giancarlo Esposito. The actor is featured prominently in the World Premiere Trailer which offers an extended cinematic sequence setting the story. This concludes with a February 18, 2021 release date, confirming another detail that slipped out last week. A Meet Antón Castillo / Giancarlo Esposito Interview Video has a brief chat about his participation in the project. There's also an interview with Narrative Director Navid Khavari on the Tropical Setting and Creating a New Villain. Here's more, including details on special editions:
Far Cry 6 has been announced, revealing a Caribbean island simmering with revolutionary tension. The Far Cry franchise has always had a flair for fascinating antagonists, and Far Cry 6 will feature Emmy Award Nominee Giancarlo Esposito (“Better Call Saul,” “The Boys,” “The Mandalorian”) as President Antón Castillo, the violent leader who grips the island of Yara with an iron fist, promising a return to its former glory. With an arsenal of weapons and allies at your back, you’ll take on Castillo’s regime and fight for the future of Yara. Far Cry 6 is coming to Xbox Series X, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, Stadia, and PC (through the Epic Games Store, Uplay, and UPLAY+) on February 18, 2021.

As Dani Rojas (playable as a female or male character), you will help stoke the fires of revolution through guerrilla warfare across the island of Yara, from verdant jungles to the urban streets of the capital city, Esperanza. You’ll use a powerful array of weapons and vehicles, and build a network of allies to fight alongside you, including Fangs for Hire like Chorizo, the dangerously distracting wiener dog. As President Castillo prepares his son Diego, played by Anthony Gonzalez (“Coco”), to succeed him, you will do all you can to ensure his plans don’t come to fruition.

Far Cry 6 is now available for pre-order. Players who purchase the game on Xbox One or PS4 will be able to upgrade their version to Xbox Series X or PS5, respectively, at no cost. Pre-ordering will unlock access to the Libertad pack, which includes the Libertad outfit for Chorizo as well as the “Discos Locos,” a weaponized disc launcher. More information on the editions available for pre-order follows.

  • The Gold Edition will include the base game and the Season Pass.
  • The Ultimate Edition will include the base game, the Season Pass, and the Ultimate pack, which includes Jungle Expedition, Croc Hunter, and Vice packs.
  • The Collector’s Edition will include the base game, Season Pass, the Ultimate pack, a high-end replica of “Tostador,” an in-game flamethrower weapon (7 parts to be assembled, length: 72cm), a “How to Assemble” one-pager artwork illustrated by artist Tobatron, a unique Collector’s Case based on Tobatron’s art style, an exclusive Steelbook, a 64-page artbook, a set of 10 stickers, a Chorizo keyring, a map, and a selected soundtrack.

I am cautiously interested. I hated New Dawn and found it to be both boring and cliche.

Far Cry 5 I had a blast in because I was able to mow down religious zealots with glee.

Provided that reviews are decent, I will probably pick this up after I finish Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dog Legion.

This looks like it's going to be awesome. I'm down for another Carribbean setting that pushes hard on the latin side. While Far Cry 3 was a cool game, it didn't push hard enough a cultural influence. I think it was in Brazil but despite that, I didn't get the vibes too much other than a your in a jungle often... I'm not sure but I'm getting a Cuban vibe with this one.

Hope it goes well cause I found Montana boring as shiiiiiiiit. Luckily, New Dawn fixed it completely for me anyway. I know a lot weren't into New Dawn and said, oh, it was just a reskin of FC5. Yes, but it made it interesting.

Far Cry 3 was a Pacific island. The setting was generic and just for background. The plot was nonsensical, tied to nothing, and had you play as a frat bro.
It was still a blast.
Far Cry 4 tied it more to a culture and gave us a better villain, and it was great.
Far Cry 5 just felt empty from a plot perspective and the whole game was a let down.
This looks like a return to FC4.

Really enjoyed New Dawn, just hope they are more depth and variety... to well... pretty much everything. The game engine and fundamentals have so much potential.

Oh, and you guys better continue with the real co-op you brought us in FC5!

Coop, yes. I'm really hoping they didn't leave it out, that was the best fun I had playing these games was with a friend.

OK, I did a little digging, UBI has the game already up for pre-order. here are some details that I know some of you want to know about Coop. This is straight from their page.

Release date: February 18, 2021
Genre: Shooter, Open World, FPS, Co-op, Multiplayer
Single player: Yes

So, Yep, I'm a happy camper. This is now high on my want list.

Any coop far cry will be on my list, every time.

Thanks, sounds great!

I just hope it's co-op through the full campaign without limitations, i know i avoided some of the previous installments as the co-op was limited to some side missions / outposts only.

heh. I never knew frag grenades detonated that way. I thought pulling the pin ignited the chemical sequence which led to their exploding. And they say playing video games isn't educational.

So what you usually see in movies and TV is people just instantly letting go of the grip and waiting a couple of seconds. This is called "cooking". If I recall from when I was in the army you have about 5 seconds before it blows. Sometimes less. Obviously you want to cook it so the target has less time to react to it showing up.

Arming and detonation are almost always separated somehow for things humans do. It's way too dangerous otherwise.

Interesting that they would give him credit from BCS but not BB which is where I'm sure a lot of people were introduced to him.

Either way, I can't get enough of the pollo man so this might be the first Far Cry game I check out.

I just checked his filmography, I didn't realize he was born in 1958! Holy shit! I thought he was way younger than that. Ok, not way, but I would have assumed he was born in the early-mid 60s.

He's always been one of my favorite actors. I still remember him Taps, though it was a bit part. And I actually remember him better from School Daze than Do the Right Thing. His best performance, - IMHO - is in Jim Jarmusch's Night on Earth. That's my third favorite film of all time right there. The vignette in New York with Giancarlo Esposito, Armin Mueller-Stahl, and Rosie Perez is the greatest bit ever in a film. Followed closely by Roberto Benini's vignette in Rome. If you've never seen it, you owe it to yourself to see it before you die. It might very well be my "desert island" film. It's certainly GE at his absolute best!
