Ubisoft’s decision to announce Far Cry 6 ahead of the event on Sunday follows leaks that brought the game to light, alongside an array of leaked gameplay details.
The now-removed PlayStation Store listing arrived along with a full description of the game, which read: “Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As the dictator of Yara, Anton Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps. Their ruthless oppression has ignited a revolution.”
Further gameplay details were revealed, stating that you will play as guerrilla fighter Dani Rojas, inside “the largest Far Cry playground to date across jungles, beaches and Esperanza the capital city of Yara”. Players will also be able to “employ makeshift weapons, vehicles, and Amigos, the new Fangs for Hire to burn the tyrannical regime to the ground.”
The Ubisoft Forward event is also set to cast further light on other titles such as Watch Dogs: Legion and Hyper Scape. Additionally, further news and reveals are expected to be made throughout the show.
Microsoft will also be hosting its own event later this month with the Xbox Games Showcase. The stream will give viewers a first look at upcoming titles including Halo Infinite and Psychonauts 2.
