Far Cry 6 Poster Revealed: LatAm Revolutionary Setting, Giancarlo Esposito Plays Villain

Here's the first poster reveal of "Far Cry 6" by Ubisoft, released to the web by PlayStation Store Hong Kong, along with a tentative release date of 18 February, 2021. The poster reveals a Latin American revolutionary setting that's loosely based on the many regime-changes involving autocrats in the resource-rich continent. Giancarlo Esposito, who owned the character of Gus Fring from "Breaking Bad," plays the game's big bad. All Far Cry games since Ubisoft took direct control over the franchise (FC2), involves an open-world sandbox setting that's the fiefdom of a singular main antagonist, with the protagonist starting off as someone who was at the wrong place in the wrong time.

Gee I wonder if I can do some stuff in one area of the map, then unlock a new area of the map and do the entire thing again! and then do that like 15 more times, like every single Far Cry game since 2

Yeah but consider these features:

-In each area, the enemies will have different uniforms and their guns will have different color tracers.
-Cactii will be slightly different shapes, sizes and colors from area to area.
-A snow biome is likely, despite the game happening in a desert in a 20 mile radius, neat-o!
-Story elements shitting on society's current out-groups while constantly virtue-signaling to 2020's political in-groups. So brave!
-Quest/task names with pop culture references to really make the player feel like they're part of something special.
-Progression based on thousands of hours of psychology studies in order to maximize the length of the game into dozens of hours of consistent dopamine hits for the brain.

I wished they made a dinosaur island or some distant planet with aliens. This is just the same game over again with different regime.

I liked the setting too. And the spinoff's were nice too the zombie and Vietnam ones.
This might also be good especialy if it set in 80's.

FarCry 2 - bleh
FarCry 3 - liked the antagonist, made the game for me
FarCry 4 - still don't think I beat it to this day....then again, my time spent playing it was 12 hours....so maybe I did? Just not memorable.
FarCry 5 - Story felt forced and when you'd get sucked into a cut-scene during the most awkward times was horribly irritating to a point it actually made me upset a few times (snapped up from what you were doing for some forced story line cut-scene that you weren't even working on). I can honestly say the only thing really going for FarCry 5 was it was the story was full co-op.

I can't say FarCry 6 looks like something that would further my interest in the series based on the past few games.

That is not a problem because many companies does that.
Activision with his COD series is far worse if you look it your way.

As long as they come with a proper game and not the same thing over and over.
I love the Far Cry games.....all of them except part 2.

2 was by far the worst... The rest have been pretty amazing since they nailed it with 3 and then just remade 3 with new stories and environments with minor tweaks. The environment + gun play is just too much fun + all the combinations and different ways to play the game that this opens up is great.

Can't wait for this one.

Unfortunately, I love Far Cry, its recipe.
Annnd I don't want it to change.

It's a cosy sandbox fps game.

It's like an old pair of socks.

Co-op is why I liked FC4.
Really really wish more games did that.

GTAV would've been a good candidate.

I also think The Witcher could've allowed it, join your friends game as Eskel and go do some contracts or something.

They need to sprinkle some magic on FC6 to make it interestingly different, otherwise, it's just another capture the outpost over and over again. Fun to do, but it does get repetitive.
Far Cry 5 was great fun, but it got terribly bogged down with some hideous repetition on the boss fights, so much co that I simply cannot listen to Only You from The Platters ever again.

I never played it, but it was mostly the same just by watching videos. Same core gameplay loop. Not a very focused game, a big map with repeating activities over and over again.

That would be the Blood Dragon expansion.

This says it all. They can't come up with an original story, so they recycle the same setup with the same shallow protagonist that can't speak and a totally unrealistic and predictable ending. How do you enjoy playing something when you know exactly how it ends before you even install the game?

Who isn't ? In case you haven't noticed every relatively major studio/publisher is focusing on established franchises. Business wise it's the bets thing to do, new franchises means uncertainty and risk.

I will be looking forward to this and Esposito's voice acting. He has an incredibly smooth voice.

Alright Ubisoft, you have my interest. FC3 is still my fav. FC4 was enjoyable and decent, but not a big leap forward either. FC5 amazing environment, but I felt the story was a bit meh - almost like they took the original script and hollowed it out as to not offend anyone. New Dawn was an fun twist on the FC formula and loved the different take on the game art. Overall, I'm kind of glad they haven't changed the formula too much, but it's shame they've stripped out some Dunia features that FC2 had.
