Far Cry 6 Officially Announced; Launches February 18, 2021 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, and Xbox Series X

Ubisoft have officially announced Far Cry 6 during their Ubisoft Forward presentation.

We cannot gather a huge amount of new information from the trailer alone; mostly confirming what we new from the leak leaked earlier this week. From the video description, we know the game’s environment will be a city- Esperanza- as oppose to the wilderness as past titles have been.

Players will engage in guerrilla warfare to overthrow dictator Anton Castillo, using weapons, vehicles, and even animals such as horses and a wiener dog. No platforms were announced at this time.

You can find the world premiere trailer and various other trailers below.

UPDATE: The game’s pre-order bonuses and special editions have revealed what platforms the game is coming to (Thanks Wario64!). These also confirm that the main character can be a man or a woman, and that Chorizo the wiener dog does not have functioning back legs.

The video description for the interview with Giancarlo Espositio also confirms more platforms.

Those who pre-order the game will get access to the Discos Locos CD launcher weapon, and the Libertad Chorizo skin.

The Gold Edition ($99.99) will give players the Season Pass, granting 3 DLCs when they launch “and more.” The Ultimate Edition ($ 119.99 USD) will grant the Season Pass, as well as the Croc Hunter, Vice, and Jungle Expedition Packs.

Each pack appears to offer their own combination of skins, weapons, and guns; with some granting vehicles or animal companions. The Ultimate Edition content is also available via UPlay+.

You can find the full run down (via the video description) below.

In Far Cry® 6, players are immersed in the adrenaline-filled, chaotic world of a modern-day guerrilla revolution. Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As dictator of Yara, Anton Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps. Become a guerrilla fighter and burn their regime to the ground. Key Features

Dive into a blockbuster experience as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran defending their country from a tyrant’s rule. Join the revolution to push back against the oppressive regime of dictator Anton Castillo and his teenage son Diego, brought to life by Hollywood stars Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) and Anthony Gonzalez (Coco).

For the first time in Far Cry, experience a sprawling capital city: Esperanza, the most expansive Far Cry playground to date. Take down Anton in the seat of his power by staying hidden or engaging Anton’s army in an all-out firefight in the streets. From taking the reins of a horse to commandeering a tank, choose your favorite ride to fight against the regime or to just travel Yara in style.

Jump into the action and chaos of guerrilla combat at the heart of a revolution. Employ an arsenal of unique and surprising new weapons, vehicles, and animal companions in a fight against an unyielding military regime. No guerrilla should go it alone, so pair up with an all-new animal companion like Chorizo, the adorable wiener dog who’s as cute as he is lethal.

Far Cry 6 launches February 18th, 2021, for Windows PC (via UPlay), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.
