Far Cry 6 ignites the revolution on October 7

Starring Dani Rojas

Ubisoft has locked in the date for its next Far Cry game. Far Cry 6 will kick off the revolution in Yara on Oct. 7, 2021.

Set in the fictional country of Yara, Far Cry 6 will focus on a modern-day guerrilla revolution against the regime of dictator Anton Castillo (played by Breaking Bad‘s Giancarlo Esposito). Playing as Dani Rojas, you can use a variety of weapons, both standard and improvised—from machine guns to a compact disc launcher.

Far Cry 6 was delayed off its February launch earlier this year due to the impact of COVID-19 and work-from-home development. Now, it looks like Ubisoft’s latest shooter is all set to launch this fall.

You’ll have animal companions like the tiny little Chorizo to help you out, rides ranging from horses to tanks, and a giant city to explore. Essentially, it’s Far Cry—but it’s Far Cry coming to the new consoles. We’ll see how the open-world mayhem works out in Yara when Far Cry 6 launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, PS5, PC, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna on Oct. 7, 2021.
