Far Cry looks better than ever in the latest gameplay reveal from Ubisoft.

Far Cry is back with a gameplay reveal for its sixth mainline outing. Originally slated for a February release, Far Cry 6 was slapped with an indefinite delay.

However, following a brief event that revealed the story, locations and gameplay features, Ubisoft has confirmed that the latest instalment will be landing on October 7, 2021.


Starting after a full half-hour of mood-setting stills, we got a closer look at just how terrible the incredibly villainous Giancarlo Esposito will be as the tyrant Antón Castillo. With new protagonist Dani Rojas, you’ll be fighting back against the oppressive regime to liberate the people of the Caribbean island of Yara. Sound familiar? Yeah… we think so too.

Despite its narrative familiarness, Far Cry 6  is gearing up to be the most beautiful and fun entry yet, with its weaponry, traversal and general zaniness. You can tear through soldiers with motorcycle engine-powered miniguns. You can throw Molotovs as you gallop through Yara’s centre on horseback. Or you can let your companion crocodile, Guapo, do the fighting for you. And, as with the previous two entries, you can do all of the above in co-op multiplayer.

Far Cry 6 may look familiar in many ways, but with the additional gameplay features – such as a customizable jetpack/flamethrower/missile launcher – gorgeous graphics and what looks to be the most intriguing villain since Vaas, it will undoubtedly be a good time.

Far Cry 6 will launch on PlayStation, Xbox, Stadia, Amazon Luna, and PC on October 7, 2021.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
