Far Cry 6 Free Weekend Begins

Ubisoft announces a free weekend is now underway in Far Cry 6, offering the chance to visit Yara without buying the game (or a plane ticket). The free weekend runs through Sunday, and if you buy the game after that, your progress will continue. As further incentive, the first-person shooter sequel is on sale on all platforms. To play the Windows edition, here are the links the announcement neglects to provide to the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store. Also, there's a Photo Mode Contest with cool prizes, and free players are eligible. Here's the deal:
Far Cry 6 is hosting a free weekend until August 7, so get your Supremo ready to lead Libertad to victory. Available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Stadia, and PC through the Ubisoft Store and Epic Games Store, the free weekend includes access to the full game, including the Danny Trejo, Rambo, and Stranger Things crossover missions. Whether you're fighting with guerillas against Antón Castillo, delivering Danny's dealing death with Danny Trejo, unleashing epic explosions with an action hero-superfan, or saving Chorizo from the Shadow Place, there's a lot for new players to explore.

If you want to keep fighting after the free weekend ends, you can purchase the game and continue playing with all your progression intact. During, and for a short time after the free weekend, you can get discounts on the game, its Season Pass, and the DLCs that let you play as legendary Far Cry villains Vaas, Pagan Min, and Joseph Seed.
