The Far Cry series of games are all individual stories but follow a very similar plot and gameplay formula. With use of a map of the open world play area, you must liberate the land with the help of the local resistance. Attack and capture enemy strongholds, find radio towers, and caches of weapons and equipment and craft upgrades for same. Use abandoned vehicles (or in this game, horses) to travel long distances. Another feature of the games is the use of animals as weapons, known here as "Amigos". In Far Cry 6 you can befriend and use 7 different animals, including an alligator and a fighting rooster. There are also drug related sequences in the games which work as vision quests or hallucinations that distort your view of the world and reveal secrets. You follow a story with main missions to complete, as well as side missions that are optional.
The Far Cry series includes:
- Far Cry (2004) Micronesian Island
- Far Cry 2 (2008) East Africa
- Far Cry 3 (2012) Tropical island
- Far Cry 4 (2014) Fictional Himalayan Country
- Far Cry Primal (2016) Set in Neolithic Times
- Far Cry 5 (2018) Montana
- Far Cry 6 (2021) South American Island
- Far Cry: New Dawn (2019) Sequel to Far Cry 5
Far Cry games are open world and with a focus on realism, which is generally super violent. This extends beyond the impressive visuals, sound and scope of the environments to how the characters interact with you and respond to your actions. Since Far Cry 4, and expanded by Far Cry 5, you can play this with a friend if they have a copy of the game and complete the game as a team, but generally this is played solo.

Sound effects can have a caption, which points towards the location of the sound with an on-screen pointer. (This doesn't distinguish between harmless and dangerous animals.) You can outline enemies and loot in the game to make them more visible. You can adjust the reticule thickness and colour.
Button Holds and Toggles can also be controlled individually for actions like crouching, aiming, sprinting, and accessing the weapon wheel. You can combine Move and Look controls on a single stick rather than two sticks. You can also opt to Sprint when the stick is pushed fully forward.
There is Aim Assist as well as Lock-On Aim which makes it easier to target and shoot.
