Far Cry 6: Watch the first Gameplay Video revealed in today’s Livestream!
We’ve finally had a glimpse of gameplay footage for Far Cry 6. We’ve been a big fan of Giancarlo Esposito’s acting here, playing the role of the charismatic dictator Anton Castillo. However, a video game’s got to show its gameplay leading up to its release. Thankfully, Ubisoft fully realizes that Giancarlo can’t carry the game’s marketing on his shoulders forever. Hence, the Far Cry 6 Worldwide Gameplay Reveal, which you can watch below.
We can paint a rough picture of how the game will be like. Of course, there’s no big deviation from the tried-and-tested Far Cry formula, but there are some differences here and there between Far Cry 6 and its predecessors. For the first time ever, we get to play as a female character, Dani Roja. She’s a revolutionary in Yara, a freedom fighter that joins the resistance against President Castillo’s dictatorship.
From what we can see from the game footage, being part of the resistance has a lot of perks. For one, you’re no longer fighting just for yourself, like you usually do in Far Cry games. You’re part of a movement, and you get to fight alongside your comrades in this game. Being an underground movement means you have limited resources and access to weaponry. Hence, it’s either you get your weapons from arms dealers in the black market, or better yet, you make your own. The latter option means we get to see a huge diversity of weapons in this game. There are a lot of conventional firearms, but homemade ones, too, like a rocket-launching backpack. Heck, even the vehicles you ride in this game are homemade.
Finally, we get to see how the game will look like. There’s only one word to describe it: gorgeous.
