As its release nears, Far Cry 6 continues to unveil a little more. Two weeks ago you were able read our enthusiastic first impressions on this new episode which promises to be a homecoming. Ubisoft has now decided to highlight post-launch content, billed as “the most ambitious in Far Cry history”. And there will be plenty to do without necessarily taking out the bank card. Everyone will be able to participate in the weekly insurgencies, which will allow you to obtain equipment by eliminating groups of enemies across Yara Island. Six Special Ops will also be added for free and will introduce new unique zones from October.. The objective will be to steal chemical weapons and bring them to an extraction point. Even more attractive, three crossover missions will land over the months, from December. They will respectively feature actor Danny “Machete” Trejo, a fan character from the Rambo universe and The Upside Down from the Netflix series Stranger Things. Again, it will be completely free.
Of course, we cannot escape the inevitable paid Season Pass, which had already been presented at E3 2021. It promises to be heavy: the three DLC it contains will play as three villains of the saga, Vaas Montenegro from Far Cry 3, Pagan Min from Far Cry 4 and Joseph Seed from Far Cry 5. Ubisoft talks about a die & retry experience inspired by the rogue-lite genre. In addition, everything will be playable in co-op, like the rest of the game. See you in November 2021 for the first DLC, January 2022 for the second, and March 2022 for the last. Cherry on the cake, the spin-off game Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is also included in this Season Pass, priced at € 39.99. You now know everything about the Far Cry 6 roadmap, you just have to wait until the game’s release, scheduled for October 7, 2021 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PC and Google Stadia.
