Ubisofts new title isn’t a far cry from its previous iterations of a story about a ruthless tyrant, who preys on their people and country for power, being systematically destroyed by some form of freedom fighter who is equally if not more destructive than the tyrant themselves. This time its set in faux-Cuba so buckle up, light those cigars and get ready for some mayhem in Far Cry 6 by Ubisoft.
DISCLAIMER: THIS TITLE WILL NOT BE RELEASED UNTIL 2021. THE CONTENTS OF THIS REVIEW IS PURELY SPECULATIVE. THE GAME MAY DIFFER UPON RELEASE.
Keeping in Far Cry’s first person action adventure shooter looter strides, the game will most likely consist of gameplay we have experienced before in the series. Looking through the eyes of the player character Dani Rojas, it’s been said the player will be able to choose the characters gender at the start of the game but unlike its predecessor Far Cry 5, the characters will be fully voiced.
It can be expected that the gameplay will be like the missions set in Cuba in Call of Duty: Black Ops but open world and much more content and conflict. The players will probably be using pre-designed and makeshift weapons, vehicles, hiring other freedom fighters to help as well as a “fangs for hire” system where you can recruit certain animals to fight with you.
From what we have seen, the story revolves around the player controlled freedom fighter Dani Rojas. Dani fights against the Dictator “El Presidente” Anton Castillo, and potentially his son Diego. It’s been said that Castillo’s father was the former ruler of the games fictional setting of Yara, and that he was overthrown and beheaded.
In the following decades, Anton saw the country fall to economic ruin as the world left it behind. Castillo, fuelled by the desire to see his country prosperous and free from international interference, elects to become the new “El Presidente” with promises of returning the land to its former glory. He succeeds and immediately goes full fascist dictator and begins to aggressively force his people in line, but it isn’t long before a new revolution begins.
Set in the fictional sovereign nation Yara, which has been extensively based on real world Cuba, the country has been described as a “country caught in time” as it hasn’t properly moved on since the 70’s. It’s probably safe to say we can expect gorgeous sunbathed hills, sandy beaches and perhaps a few more areas of civilisation than we’ve seen in Far Cry games before. The trailer clearly shows the Castillo stronghold is at the centre of a city or large town, so maybe a more urban environment will welcome us in some sections of the map.
Due to the specific economic blockades that have been placed on the island, we will most likely see vintage cars, modern weapons and a whole host of fun but dangerous homemade equipment to accompany us through the world. It crucial that game makes a few key changes so as to not be a rehash of its previous titles but only time will tell.
- Giancarlo Esposito is a fantastic actor and he will no doubt make an incredible villain.
- This is the first time that the primary antagonist has had child involved in a Far Cry story. The concept opens up a lot of narrative possibilities.
- It’s been said that the Anton Castillo is a far more empathetic character than we would expect, perhaps a never-before-seen relationship between the player and the villain could manifest and allow the player to switch sides.
- Following Far Cry 5, and Ubisofts tendency to rinse a formula, it is a concern that this game will simply be a reskinned version of the former title.
- Hopefully, the game will include more of the bad guy than FarCry 4 did when it criminally underused the brilliant primary antagonist.
