Far Cry 6 first became known when it was leaked on the Hong Kong PlayStation Store back in July 2020. Back then it had a release date of 18 February, which then got pushed back to 26 May, before getting delayed again. Now, Ubisoft has announced that the game will be released on 7 October.
The announcement came alongside an extended gameplay reveal for the game. And it shows that Far Cry 6 is going to be a little more than the games that came before it. It will still involve open world exploration, the range of environments is quite extensive. The range of improvised weaponry also border on the absurd.
The player character, Dani Rojas, is revealed to be canonically a lady. But whether your Dani is a guy or girl is still up to you. The plot is unchanged from what we heard before – guerilla fighters trying to depose the dictator of a fictional country called Yara.
As mentioned earlier, Far Cry 6 will be available on 7 October. When it launches, the game will be available for previous and current generation consoles, PC, as well as Stadia. Those who get copies of the game for older consoles will also be able to upgrade them to the current-gen versions for free.
