Ubisoft has a livestream later today to unveil Far Cry 6’s gameplay but fans won’t have to wait for details. YouTuber Rojson went early with eight minutes of different mechanics and sequences, showcasing some of the new things that players can expect. While the video has since been removed, you can check out GIFs and a mirror via Reddit.
Gameplay is very much in line with previous titles, whether it’s in the gun play or stealth. There is quite a bit that’s new though. Handmade weapons and vehicles are here, providing for some hefty customization. One such weapon launched CDs and would play Los del Rio’s Macarena. Supremo Backpacks are also a thing with one acting somewhat like a jetpack (though it merely causes damage to nearby foes with its exhaust). Another allows for firing mortars at enemies.
Fangs-for-Hire are referred to as Amigos and along with Chorizo the dachshund, who will distract enemies, there’s a crocodile that can outright shred them apart. Clothes can also provide different stats with some being better suited for combat or stealth. Other RPG elements are present like previous games but there aren’t many details to go off of.
Far Cry 6 is coming to Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC and Google Stadia sometime before March 31st 2022. Stay tuned for tonight’s livestream which kicks off at 9:30 AM PT.
