Far Cry 6 Gameplay Reveal Happening on May 28
Ubisoft announced a Far Cry 6 gameplay reveal livestream earlier today, with the livestream scheduled to air on May 28 at 12:30 p.m. (EST). To prepare yourself for the livestream, Ubisoft provided a YouTube link where the stream will go live.

It’s unclear exactly what will be shown gameplay wise for Far Cry 6. The game was originally tapped to release on February 18 of this year, but was subsequently delayed. It’s possible we’ll not only see gameplay during the Far Cry 6 livestream on May 28, but a release date as well.
For a refresher on the premise of Far Cry 6, here’s a description with text courtesy of Ubisoft.
“In Far Cry 6, players are immersed in the adrenaline-filled, chaotic world of a modern-day guerrilla revolution. Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As dictator of Yara, Anton Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps. Become a guerrilla fighter and burn their regime to the ground.
IGNITE THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
Dive into a blockbuster experience as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran defending their country from a tyrant’s rule. Join the revolution to push back against the oppressive regime of dictator Anton Castillo and his teenage son Diego, brought to life by Hollywood stars Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) and Anthony Gonzalez (Coco).
YARA TORN APART
For the first time in Far Cry, experience a sprawling capital city: Esperanza, the most expansive Far Cry playground to date. Take down Anton in the seat of his power by staying hidden or engaging Anton’s army in an all-out firefight in the streets. From taking the reins of a horse to commandeering a tank, choose your favorite ride to fight against the regime or to just travel Yara in style.
BECOME A GUERRILLA Jump into the action and chaos of guerrilla combat at the heart of a revolution. Employ an arsenal of unique and surprising new weapons, vehicles, and animal companions in a fight against an unyielding military regime. No guerrilla should go it alone, so pair up with an all-new animal companion like Chorizo, the adorable wiener dog who’s as cute as he is lethal.”
Exciting stuff, especially with the inclusion of actor Giancarlo Esposito. To get a full look at Far Cry 6, be sure to tune in to the gameplay reveal livestream on Friday, May 28, at 12:30 p.m. (EST).
