Ubisoft has officially announced Far Cry 6, which will be released for the Xbox Series X, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, Stadia, and PC (through the Epic Games Store, Uplay, and UPLAY+) on February 18, 2021. You can check out the World Premiere Trailer below, which gives us a glimpse of the relationship between antagonist President Antón Castillo – played by Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Mandalorian) – and his son, Diego, among the chaos of the series’s latest setting, Yara.

“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,” wrote Ubisoft.

“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.”

What’s really cool is that Xbox One and PlayStation 4 copies of Far Cry 6 can be upgraded to their next-generation versions (i.e., Xbox Series X, PS5) for free! Here’s what pre-ordering will net you:

  • 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.

Ubisoft has also published an interview with Far Cry 6 Narrative Director Navid Khavari, who discusses the franchise’s return to a tropical setting and the motivations behind Esposito’s character, Antón Castillo. Evidently, this will be the first time that a Far Cry game features a large urban environment.
