Ubisoft is notorious for its impressive post-release support, even when it comes to single player games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. And to be fair, Far Cry 6’s lifespan has been quite long, with the title originally launching in 2021 and getting multiple updates and expansions thereafter. But in a message on the franchise’s...
Wednesday30th Nov 2022
Far Cry 6 was already a fairly out-there open world experience when it launched last year, allowing you to fashion a firearm out of an old Walkman which would play the Macarena while you chopped down hordes of foes. Now it’s getting even crazier, with the release of the Lost Between Worlds expansion, due out on 6th December for $19.99...

Well, it was someone's GOTY
Branding around Ultimate Editions of games has always been a little weird, but it's never funnier when a publisher hands itself a Game of the Year Edition for something that didn't exactly set the world on fire. Enter Ubisoft with a Far Cry 6 Game of the Year Upgrade Pass that's just been spotted on the backend of the...
Friday5th Aug 2022
In an exciting development for those of us without weekend plans, Far Cry 6 is now available to play for free, including all of its DLC, until 7th August. In addition, players won over by this promotion will be able to purchase various versions of the game with up to 60% off, until 17th August. That's a massive amount of content to dive into...

Full game free this weekend
A new season of Stranger Things will air in May, and Far Cry 6 wants to get you in the mood. An update, available now, adds an entirely new mission strand to Ubisoft’s open world shooter, and it’s free for anyone who owns the title. Furthermore, if you haven’t taken a trip to Yara yet, the entire game is free to...

The final oorah
Far Cry 6 will round out its post-launch content offering next week with the final DLC instalment centred around villains from previous entries. We've had Vaas from Far Cry 3, Pagan Min of Far Cry 4 fame, and now it's the turn of cult leader Joseph Seed from Far Cry 5. Titled Collapse, this concluding expansion once again uses the...

Far Cry 4 villain returns
Far Cry 4 villain Pagan Min is the star of the next Far Cry 6 DLC, scheduled to release next week on 11th January 2022 for PlayStation 5 and PS4. It'll be available standalone for £11.99/$14.99 or as part of the season pass, and will once again be more of a rogue-like experience that dives "the depths of the villain’s...

He just wants to make tacos
Danny Trejo® – who, according to Ubisoft’s press release, is now a registered trademark – has been added to Far Cry 6 in a couple of free missions. It seems the actor will play himself, as you fight alongside him against Antón Castillo’s resistance in order to help him make his “world-famous tacos”...

Featuring rogue-like elements
The first bit of paid Far Cry 6 DLC will launch on Tuesday for PlayStation 5 and PS4, featuring Far Cry 3 villain Vaas. The classic character will be playable in the expansion, which is said to feature rogue-like elements. "Starting with nothing more than a pistol to defend themselves, players will need to find new...

Far Cry 6 has just deployed its first big patch since launch, and it prepares the game for a bit of free DLC, makes some gameplay updates and quality of life changes, and then fixes some bugs. It weighs in at 18.391GB on PlayStation 5, and the Ubisoft blog says the PS4 specific update will be "between 49 GB and 60 GB...

QR codes tease upcoming projects
Ubisoft has got pretty good at teasing future projects in its current games, and Far Cry 6 is no different. While the game isn’t out yet – and a Push Square review is still several days away as we only got access today – YouTubers are already uncovering secrets, and sharing them all over the web. Specifically,...

Restricted to PC for now
Ray tracing is a relatively nascent technology, so it’s perhaps not surprising that developers are taking their time to get to grips with it. We reported last week that Gran Turismo 7 will restrict the nifty reflection technology to replays, and now Far Cry 6 is shunning the feature entirely – on next-gen consoles like...

Free and premium DLC roadmap is wild
One of the best parts of any given Far Cry game is its post-release support. These games might be a little bit samey, but Ubisoft pushes the franchise into some pretty insane scenarios, providing some wildly different ways to play. Far Cry 6 appears to be no different — the publisher is planning a robust...

Once more with feeling
Ubisoft really wants you to know all about Far Cry 6. Yesterday, the publisher released a new video about the upcoming game, and it provides an overview of the gameplay as well as the scenario and setting. Stop us if this all sounds familiar, but this new trailer explains that the sequel takes place in Yara, a fictional...

Same old, same old
The embargo on a new wave of Far Cry 6 previews has just lifted, allowing various outlets the chance to share their first thoughts based on four to five hours of gameplay. The overwhelming theme quickly materialising is that the sixth entry is absolutely more Far Cry rather than a new take on the series. That was to be expected...

New story trailer drops
Far Cry 6 just received a brand new story trailer, but frankly, you've seen a lot of it before. Putting the emphasis on antagonist Anton Castillo, Ubisoft is clearly hoping to win you over with another charismatic bad guy to take down in its latest open world FPS. There's not a whole lot to talk about, really: Castillo's...

Check out the trailer
Update: Ubisoft confirmed its post-launch plans for Far Cry 6, revealing today's leak is indeed true. But it actually gets even better because the season pass comes with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon too. Cool! Original story: A Far Cry 6 trailer has leaked ahead of tonight's Ubisoft Forward event that detai

Army of one
Far Cry 6 will hit PlayStation 5 and PS4 on 7th October 2021, Ubisoft has confirmed as part of a gameplay reveal trailer embedded above. Nearly five minutes of footage details how utterly absurd the island of Yara is, from makeshift weapons through to the act of healing wounds by burning yourself with a lit cigar. It certainly looks like...

Check out the teaser
Ubisoft is ready to lift the lid on Far Cry 6 with a full gameplay reveal this Friday, as teased in the short trailer above. The show starts at 5:30pm BST / 6:30pm CEST / 9:30am PDT / 12:30pm EDT. With Giancarlo Esposito's likeness and voice used throughout the teaser, we expect he'll play a large role in the gameplay glimpses...

The Quarantine name may be changed
Ubisoft has confirmed in its latest earnings call that it still plans to put out Rainbow Six: Quarantine and Far Cry 6 at some point this year after delaying both titles due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The former has never had a specific date attached to it (nor has any gameplay footage been...

Maybe, maybe not
We've seen a CG trailer and a few screenshots for Far Cry 6, but the Ubisoft shooter is still a ways off. Originally pegged for February 2021, the open world FPS was recently pushed back, launching somewhere between the end of April and September. Now, one online listing may have something more specific. The Microsoft Store page...

Avatar, Rainbow Six: Quarantine also pushed back
As part of its second-quarter earnings call earlier today, Ubisoft delayed a number of its upcoming PlayStation 5 titles due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Far Cry 6, originally scheduled to launch in February 2021, will now release between April and September of next year. The same...

Three pieces of DLC too
Last night's Far Cry 6 announcement trailer took itself pretty seriously, but if you were to dig a little deeper, you'll find out that this will probably still be an experience full of comical stupidity. Alongside the pre-order bonus of a Libertad skin for your canine companion, the Collector's Edition also includes a...
Welcome to Yara
Far Cry 6 is now official following the leaks, and we have the first trailer for the open world FPS. Coming to both PlayStation 5 and PS4 next year, this new iteration of the popular series takes place in an island nation called Yara, and it takes grand inspiration from the Republic of Cuba. Check out these first screenshots to get a...

Launches next year
Far Cry 6 has been officially announced. Ubisoft's big surprise for the end of its just-finished live stream was ruined by leaks, but at least we have a sinister CG trailer now. It focuses on Anton Castillo, main antagonist and dictator of fictional country Yara, and his son, Diego. The country is in the midst of a revolution,...

Ubisoft responds to leak
Update: Ubisoft has acknowledged the leak with the following tweet: Original story: If it isn't the Microsoft Store doing all the leaking, it's the Hong Kong PlayStation Store!
