After originally being leaked online, Ubisoft has officially unveiled Far Cry 6 along with a cinematic trailer that announced the release date.
The game takes place in Yara, a land ruled by dictator Anton, portrayed by Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito. Players will control Dani Rojas and will fight alongside other guerilla fighters in the attempt to save Yara.
Far Cry 6’s cinematic trailer gave viewers a look at antagonist Anton and his son, Diego. In a length monologue, Anton explains the war-torn world of Yara to Diego, while making him hold a cooked grenade to demonstrate the parallels.

Additionally, the previously leaked PlayStation Store listing described the game as “the largest Far Cry playground to date across jungles, beaches and Esperanza the capital city of Yara”.
The reveal came as part of the Ubisoft Forward event, a showcase looking at the company’s future titles, including an in-depth gameplay demonstration of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion. The developer also revealed released dates for both games.
Ubisoft is one of many companies that have held their own games reveal presentations in the past few months, in place of the now-cancelled E3 2020. Microsoft is set to be the next company with an Xbox Games Showcase taking place next week (July 23), looking at titles coming to the Xbox Series X such as Halo Infinite.
