Far Cry games have always had settings that are rather rural and/or untamed in nature, and lack much of in-game civilization. Far Cry 6as we know now, will be taking place in a fictional version of Cuba, an island nation called Yara- and for the first time in the series, this setting will introduce a full-fledged urban environment, with the capital city of Yara being completely free to explore for players.

Given how new something like this is for Far Cry, there’s reason enough to be excited as it is, but in precise terms, what can players expect from the game’s city environment and what it brings to the table. In a recent interviewFar Cry 6 narrative director Navid Khavari spoke about the same.

“It’s been an amazing experience just to even be part of developing that,” Khavari spoke. “Our team has done such an amazing job; it’s kind of an honor to be the first Far Cry that has a capital city!”

Khavari explain that this city being the seat of power for the dictatorial antagonist of the game, Anton, when players enter the city they will feel like they’re “walking into the lion’s den.” He added that from a gameplay perspective, the city environment will see players jumping across rooftops, fighting in back alleys, and fighting against some of the toughest enemies in the game. All in all, according to Khavari, it all “completely changes the way the game feels.”

” It starts with the idea of building a country, right?” he said. “You can’t have an island – this country – without having a capital city, and I think there’s a lot of love and care that they put into not only just building the city, but the demographics around that. This is the seat of Antón’s power. This is where most of his supporters are, and on a narrative side, you want to feel like you’re walking into the lion’s den. And on the gameplay side, the verticality is a complete game-changer. Being able to run across rooftops, use back alleys, fight against some of the toughest opponents in the game in this setting, I think is really unique and fresh. And it completely changes the way the game feels.”

Far Cry 6 is due out for the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia on February 18, 2021.
