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.
