Far Cry 6 Trailer “Our country is like this grenade… you must clutch our people nice and tight or we all go boom.”
Ubisoft has been dropping bombs all day at Ubisoft Forward event announcing some pretty big things to come, but none bigger in my eyes than Far Cry 6. Along with the announcement Ubisoft also released a 4 min trailer that shows a tropical paradise in the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution, check it out below.
Players will take control of either a male or female Dani Rojas, a local swept up in the revolution against antagonist President Antón Castillo. You will become a guerrilla fighter and unite an entire island to rise up against the tyrants that hold back your people in the lush jungles to Yara’s capital city Esperanza.
“Powerful and complex antagonists are part of Far Cry’s DNA, so right from the beginning we knew we had to raise the bar for who these characters could be and how they would come to life,” said Navid Khavari, Narrative Director, Ubisoft Toronto. “Working with such an amazing roster of talent, including the one and only Giancarlo Esposito, and seeing how they embody our antagonists as terrifying but also deeply complex human characters has been an unbelievable experience that I can’t wait to share with our fans.”
Ubisoft also announced a few editions will be released depending on how far you wish to venture into your journey; the Gold, Ultimate and Collector’s Editions for Far Cry 6 will be available for pre-order:
- 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 pack, the Croc Hunter pack, and the Vice pack.
