It’s been revealed! Far Cry 6 is well on its way and this time it is taking place in South America. Far Cry has been a beloved series by fans. To be honest, I felt Far Cry 5 was lacking a bit and I didn’t even try New Dawn simply because it followed up on number five, which wasn’t my favourite.
I’ve been playing these games since day one and I’d say Far Cry 3 is by far my favourite with Far Cry: Primal as a close second. But for me, Far Cry 3 really found the franchise’s groove. While people have been complaining that they play the same, my thoughts are if the system works and isn’t broken, don’t fix it.
Far Cry 5, however, tapered off fairly quickly. Maybe, it was the setting. It just felt like the game opted for more crazy stuff and stepped back on the smaller aspects of the game. Coming out of Primal, which was heavily based on crafting and actually surviving, Far Cry 5 felt lazy to me. Hopefully, Far Cry 6 doesn’t feel the same.
A lot of talk is surrounds the game’s setting. South America is very diverse with jungles, deserts and snow-tipped mountains. A tobacco field was shown in the one trailer and an urban setting for the cinematic trailer.
I can’t help but think of the map in Ghost Recon Wildlands. This has the potential to be the most diverse map in a Far Cry setting.
Akin to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, players can choose between a male and female character. I’m always for choice in video games. But what has me really excited is who the villain is. Fan favourite actor, Giancarlo Esposito is the main villain in the game, which I’m quite excited about.
It’ll be interesting to see Far Cry 6 in action which will hopefully be sooner rather than later.
