Far Cry 6 is shaping up to be a return to the franchise’s exotic, tropical roots while also embracing the over-the-top nature of recent sequels. New footage shown during Ubisoft’s livestream focused on the cast of rebels you’ll partner with to liberate the island of Yara, along with the inventive weapons–like the minigun made from motorcycle parts–that you’ll get to use while fighting for the liberation of the secluded country.
Before the livestream, we got to check out an extended presentation showcasing the different aspects of Far Cry 6‘s open world and its action-oriented gameplay. Along with that, we also heard from developers at Ubisoft as they explained how they made a more vocal and present Far Cry protagonist, and how improvised weaponry offers the most diverse arsenal of tools that the franchise has seen yet.
Like most recent Far Cry games, at the center of its high-octane adventure across vast landscapes is the main villain. In Far Cry 6, Presidente Anton Castillo–played by Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito–has taken control of the isolated island country of Yara with the aim to bring the nation into a new golden age by any means necessary. While Far Cry 5 and its epilogue, New Dawn, featured custom characters that let their actions speak for them, the next game will see the return of a voiced protagonist. Far Cry 6 focuses on Dani Rojas, who can be either a male or female character. While most Far Cry games follow the “fish-out-of-water” conceit, Dani is a native of Yara, adding further stakes in their attempt to overthrow Castillo’s regime. The protagonist will also be present in the game’s cutscenes (a first since the original Far Cry), which will show off their personality and different outfits when interacting with other characters.
