What version of Far Cry 6 can I buy in advance?

This is a Ubisoft game, so it probably won’t surprise you that you can choose from several versions to order.

First of all, anyone who pre-orders the game will get a record release of Discos Locos and a chorizo ​​Libertad thing … for company … for free.

The Standard Edition of the game is 59.99 euros and includes the game itself, along with those pre-order bonuses.

The Gold Edition costs € 99.99, and includes all of the above plus the game’s Season Pass, which includes three DLC packs.

Far Cry 6 Trailers

Plus we have the “movie title sequence,” an HBO-style introduction to the game:

What to expect from the Far Cry 6 game

Ubisoft hasn’t shown us a detailed look at the gameplay of Far Cry 6, so we don’t have much to say about it yet, but realistically, you can expect it to closely follow the steps of previous games.

With that in mind, expect a giant open world (Ubisoft says it’s the biggest Far Cry to date) where you will find countless collectibles, side quests, enemy camps, wildlife, and much more.

Far Cry games often combine stealth with shooting, which encourages you to sneak away from enemies as much as possible before letting go, although of course one of the features of the series is that you can get close to most encounters. as you like.

This time the game is set in Yara, a fictional Central American island based in Cuba. It is led by Anton (Esposito), who is positioning his young son Diego to take over as dictator-in-chief.

You will play Dani Rojas, a local from Yaran who becomes a guerrilla fighter for freedom. You will have to fight against Antón’s troops both in the capital, Esperanza, and in the small towns, beaches and jungles of the island.

Is Far Cry 6 a prequel to Far Cry 3?

One of the most popular rumors about Far Cry 6 is that it is secretly a prequel to the popular Far Cry 3.

That is mainly based on the design of the young villain Diego, who has a scar on his eyebrow very similar to that of the villain Vaas from Far Cry 3.

Ubisoft hasn’t confirmed which year the new game will be rolled out, but the ’80s aesthetic has fueled speculation that Diego will become the deranged antagonist of Far Cry 3, the game that kicked off the modern Far Cry series. On the other hand, the details they gave us about Vaas in Far Cry 3 suggest that he was born and raised in the Rook Islands, where the game is developed, so this would require clever writing or a few retcons to align everything.

For now, cross it out as a “maybe.” There could be something here, but it could also just be a happy accident that Ubisoft is using to stoke interest in the new Far Cry.

What platforms will it be available on?

The game will launch across generations, which means we’ll be seeing it on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Stadia.
