Far Cry 6 (Series) Preview


Posted: 3 months ago, last updated 10 weeks ago.

Author: @GeekDadGamer and Jo Robertson.


Far Cry 6 is the sixth in the series of shooting games. Set on a fictional Caribbean island ruled as a dictatorship, you are guerilla fighter Dani Rojas aiming to topple the regime.

Similar to previous Far Cry games you use crafted weapons, found vehicles, and hired help. The focus in the latest game has been on the political simulation, Fangs for Hire, that models outcomes based on your actions.

Far Cry games are open world and with a focus on realism. This extends beyond the impressive visuals, sound and scope of the environments to how the characters interact with you and respond to your actions.
