Far Cry 6 Revealed With Two New Trailers

Here is our first look at Far Cry 6, starring a star-studded cast.

With the previous leaks showing off what fans could possibly expect from Far Cry 6, a reveal trailer made its debut during the Ubisoft Forward press event confirming the new villain and sparking a lot of speculation that this will be a Far Cry 3 prequel diving into Vaas’ origins story.  We also had a more in-depth cinematic trailer that revealed more about the younger character’s relationship with our new villain.

Starring Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito and teasing the tumultuous era of violence and control, the teaser trailer was a small tease but boasts a pretty powerful group of actors portraying a new band of baddies for us to fight. Though the trailer didn’t reveal a whole lot, especially in terms of gameplay, a previous leak thanks to PlayStation gave us a ton of info about what’s ahead. 

According to the leak, “As the 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. Their ruthless oppression has ignited a revolution.” 

Take a look at the two new trailers below to learn more.

“Powerful and complex antagonists are part of Far Cry’s DNA, so right from the beginning we knew we had to raise the bar for who these characters could be and how they would come to life,” said Navid Khavari, Narrative Director, Ubisoft Toronto. “Working with such an amazing roster of talent, including the one and only Giancarlo Esposito, and seeing how they embody our antagonists as terrifying but also deeply complex human characters has been an unbelievable experience that I can’t wait to share with our fans.”

Far Cry 6 has a release date set for the next generation of gaming with the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC on February 18, 2021.
