Earlier this week we saw leaks about the upcoming Far Cry game. The game reportedly set to feature Breaking Bad’s own Giancarlo Esposito as the villain. This excited many fans of the long-running franchise. Far Cry historically has had some of the best villains in video games. Now, we have official information from Ubisoft on what we can expect from the next Far Cry game. Which is simply titled Far Cry 6.
Today, during Ubisoft Forward. Far Cry 6 was officially revealed with two trailers. The first was simply a cinematic title trailer that revealed that the game would be called Far Cry 6. However, in the 2nd trailer, we got to see Giancarlo Esposito embody his character for the first time. As expected, he plays a chilling and brutal dictator of a country torn apart by riots and political upheaval. The trailer doesn’t show any gameplay. It does a great job of setting the overall tone for the game. We also learned that the game will officially be launching on February 18th, 2021.
