Far Cry 6 DLC is going to be a thing after all, though we're not exactly sure what it's all about yet. It's part of the Far Cry 6 Season Pass and resurrects villains from Far Cry's past.

Each clip in the Season Pass segment shown at E3 2021 begins with a short text blurb saying "You are..." and then shows a character's name — Vaas, Pagan, Joseph. Diego Castillo might not be Vaas, but this is the next best thing. According to Ubisoft, these will split into three distinct episodes. 

It's not clear how these DLC episodes will work, though. Each villain seems to be trapped inside a twisted version of their own realities and is just as unsure about what's going on as we are. Ubisoft did not expand further, though an official description says:

Set in twisted worlds inside the minds of each character that feature locations from Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4, and Far Cry 5, each DLC will see you getting stronger the longer you survive by unlocking perks and finding new weapons. Each time you die, you’ll start over from scratch and use the knowledge you’ve gained to push further into the villain’s psyche.

The developer and publisher also said that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, the Far Cry 3 spinoff that Netflix is also turning into an anime would be included in the Far Cry 6 Season Pass. Console players will have access to the classic edition of Blood Dragon, while PC players will have access to the standard edition. 

It's not clear when the Far Cry 6 DLC will release or how much the episodes will cost outside of the Season Pass, though, presumably, it won't be long after the game's October 7, 2021, release date. The Gold Edition of Far Cry 6 includes the Season Pass. Stay tune for more.

Far Cry 6 Launches Later This Year, New Gameplay Trailer Revealed https://www.gameskinny.com/o1cvm/far-cry-6-launches-later-this-year-new-gameplay-trailer-revealed https://www.gameskinny.com/o1cvm/far-cry-6-launches-later-this-year-new-gameplay-trailer-revealed Fri, 28 May 2021 16:43:36 -0400 David Carcasole

Ubisoft's highly anticipated Far Cry 6 has officially been slated to launch on PC and consoles on October 7, 2021. The date was announced in a gameplay live stream reveal hosted by Ubisoft. 

The livestream included much more than just the release date, of course. It also gave fans a more in-depth look at the world of Far Cry 6, the game's main protagonist, Dani Rojas, and the kind of customization and creative power players will have over their arsenal and style of play. 

You can watch the full live stream, which also included an appearance from the game's narrative director, Navid Khavari, here.

A new trailer for Far Cry 6 kicked things off, which included snippets of gameplay and some cutscenes with narration from different characters like Dani and Anton Castillo, the latter of which is brought to life through a bone-chilling performance from Giancarlo Esposito.

Fans also get a closer look at just how creative they'll be able to be with the different weapons and methods used to overthrow Anton's tyrannical stranglehold on the country of Yara. Everything can be used to help craft some truly wild and weird weapons, even one that shoots CDs at a lethal rate while playing family-friendly music everyone can dance around to.

There's still a lot we don't know about Far Cry 6, but expect Ubisoft to share more details in the months leading up to launch later this year. Stay tuned.

Ubisoft Delays Far Cry 6, Rainbow Six: Quarantine to 2021-2022 Fiscal Year https://www.gameskinny.com/juwe6/ubisoft-delays-far-cry-6-rainbow-six-quarantine-to-2021-2022-fiscal-year https://www.gameskinny.com/juwe6/ubisoft-delays-far-cry-6-rainbow-six-quarantine-to-2021-2022-fiscal-year Fri, 30 Oct 2020 19:39:57 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Far Cry 6 and Tom Clancy's Rainbow: Six Quarantine are delayed until sometime after April 2021, Ubisoft announced. The decision comes in light of development challenges posed by COVID-19, Frederick Duguet, Ubisoft's CFO, said in the company's October earnings call.

Duguet said the developer and publisher "moved Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine to 2021-22 to leverage their full potential" after those challenges arose.

The Far Cry Twitter account posted a separate update, saying the delay means developers can continue working safely from home and make Far Cry 6 "the game you want it to be."

The company's fiscal year begins in April 2021 and ends in March 2022. However, neither Duguet nor Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot indicated when in that period they expect either game to release.

We reached out to Ubisoft to clarify if Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six: Quarantine would still release on current-gen systems, the PS4 and Xbox One, in light of the delay. As of this writing, we have confirmed that Far Cry 6 will still release for the PS4 and Xbox One, though we are still awaiting confirmation regarding Rainbow Six: Quarantine. We will update this story when we receive further information.  

Far Cry 6 was originally scheduled for a February 18 release on current- and next-gen consoles, minus the Switch. Rainbow Six Siege only had a tentative 2020 release date and was one of our top anticipated FPS games of 2020.

Far Cry 6 Cinematic Trailer, Release Date Revealed https://www.gameskinny.com/0y5h2/far-cry-6-cinematic-trailer-release-date-revealed https://www.gameskinny.com/0y5h2/far-cry-6-cinematic-trailer-release-date-revealed Mon, 13 Jul 2020 17:18:02 -0400 Jonathan Moore

Whelp, Far Cry 6 is officially official. The first trailer for the next game in Ubisoft's ongoing first-person shooter franchise was shown at Ubisoft Forward on Sunday. One hundred percent cinematic, the trailer (unfortunately) doesn't show any gameplay. Presumably, that's set to come at a future Ubisoft Forward presentation. 

However, what has been revealed so far coincides with what we know of Far Cry 6 from last week's PlayStation Store leak, including confirmation that Far Cry 6 will release on February 18, 2021, for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. 

Giancarlo Esposito  who, as expected, absolutely steals the trailer above  is the game's primary villain, Anton Castillo. Action will yet again take place on an island torn apart by rebellion, and although Ubisoft didn't specifically mention the game's map, it did say that some areas will be incredibly expansive. 

The cinematic trailer was accompanied by the game's title trailer as well, which can be seen below.

Far Cry 6 is available for pre-order now. Each edition comes with the expected cornucopia of bonuses, including a steelbook case or a replica of a flamethrower. 

  • Standard Edition ($59.99)
  • Gold Edition ($99.99)
  • Ultimate Edition ($119.99)
  • Collector's Edition ($199.99)

More information can be found over on the Ubisoft Store. Those who buy Far Cry 6 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to play the PS5 or Xbox Series X version of Far Cry 6 for free when they upgrade their consoles.

According to the fine print on the Ubisoft Store page, this will be done by using the original PS4/Xbox One game disc inserted into the PS5 or Xbox Series X.

Far Cry 6 Leaks Ahead of Ubisoft Forward https://www.gameskinny.com/g4a9m/far-cry-6-leaks-ahead-of-ubisoft-forward https://www.gameskinny.com/g4a9m/far-cry-6-leaks-ahead-of-ubisoft-forward Fri, 10 Jul 2020 11:10:12 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Update: Far Cry 6 was officially revealed during the Ubisoft Forward event, confirming much of the information below. 

Ubisoft's Summer Game Fest event, Ubisoft Forward, goes live in just a few days, but we've already got an idea of at least one big announcement to expect: Far Cry 6 leaked on the Hong Kong PlayStation Store, complete with brief description and anticipated release date of February 18, 2021.

Portions of the game's description showed up on Twitter, with Eurogamer catching some of the more detailed bits.

As expected after his earlier tease, Giancarlo Esposito stars as Far Cry 6's villain Anton Castillo, the dictator of a fictional country called Yara. According to the description, captured by AlexRichards65 on Twitter, Castillo and his son Diego embark on a campaign to "restore the country to its former glory" and incite a revolution in the process.

Your goal as protagonist Dani Rojas is leading the guerilla war against the dictator, and, as Eurogamer's portion of the description says, you'll use makeshift weapons, networks of sympathizers to "burn the tyrannical regime to the ground."

All this political drama unfolds across Far Cry's biggest maps ever, with jungles, beaches, and a huge capital city called Esperanza.

While there's still no word on a PlayStation 5 version of Smart Delivery, it seems Ubisoft is following EA's lead and creating its own form of Smart Delivery for PS5.

If you buy the PS4 version of Far Cry 6, you can upgrade to the PS5 version "when available" at no extra cost, the same as Square Enix promised for Marvel's Avengers. It's not clear whether "when available" means Far Cry 6 Smart Delivery won't be implemented until a later date though.

We'll probably know a whole lot more after Ubisoft Forward, so stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Far Cry 6 news as it develops.
