Last Updated on October 5, 2021 by Joydeep Ghosh

Far Cry 6 is going to feature a bad-ass villain who will be taking control of the beautiful scenery in the open-world game. We will get to see some heavy artillery and weapon-packed vehicles to ride and steal. Far Cy will be featuring Antón Castillo as the tyrant dictator who is ruling Yara. He has his son, Diego, with him on his side.

Giancarlo Esposito is the actor playing the character of Antón Castillo, which will surely make the gameplay very exciting. The primary objective of the game would definitely be to take down Antón Castillo, but in order to do that, you have to wait for Far Cry 6 to go live.

Far Cry 6 is a first-person perspective game where the player will be playing the character of Dani Rajos. He is a boy belonging to the local Yaran who simply wants to flee away from the place. Dani Rajos has come face to face with a severe crime and is forced to get into guerrilla warfare for fighting against Castillo.

Ubisoft Toronto did a fabulous job by moving to Cuba to study the language, the culture, and the nature of the people for making the game. Previously we had seen that Far Cry 5 had faced some failures when it came to political matters. Fans of the game are also worried about the same reason for Far Cry 6 as well. Navid Khavari, the narrative director of the game, has also announced that the game will definitely be a game based on political scenarios and situations.

What is the precise date and time of the release of Far Cry 6?

The date which is fixed for Far Cy 6 to release is the 7th of October, which is this upcoming Thursday. The game will release on this particular date on almost all gaming platforms like Microsoft Windows, Amazon Luna, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Stadia, and Xbox One.

Those who wish to download the game on their PC can do it from the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Connect. Just after launch, Far Cry 6 will not be available on Steam initially. The game will get unlocked on the 7th of October at 12:01 AM sharp in all the time zones.

A brief description of the gameplay of Far Cry 6.

The player playing Far Cry 6 plays the character of Dani Rojas, a local guerilla. He is trying to free his home island, Yara, from the hands of Antón Castillo, the dictator of the island. Ubisoft developers have done an amazing job in developing a map that is almost like a tiny country.

To date, this is the biggest map that we will get to see in a Far Cry game. Such a big map will make the players explore the place properly. Every place will have its own exciting feature.

The players can keep their guns aside and blend in with the world and the events that are happening. This can continue until the player creates a problem with which the military is involved or enter into restricted zones. Avoid such activities and explore the wide beauty of nature that the map has in store for you.
