One of Ubisoft’s best-selling franchises of all time it is set to return with Far Cry 6 in 2021. We have info on the game’s biggest details such as its release date, the story, the size of the map, and if it’s available on last-gen.
For a franchise that has sold over 50 million copies, Far Cry is a franchise player that has cultivated a legacy based on gorgeous, sprawling open-worlds, hours of gameplay, and a good time to be had.
We are going another round with one of the kings of the open-world. Here’s everything we know about Far Cry 6.
Far Cry 6 release date
So when can you expect to buckle yourself in for another wild RPG in Ubisoft’s next crazy island adventure? The game was originally penciled in for release on February 18, 2021.
This date has had to be put back to account for interrupted development caused by the ongoing troubles in the world. Ubisoft has yet to confirm its new release date as yet, but we can imagine it will be sometime in 2021.
Far Cry 6 platforms
The first year of the PS5 and Xbox Series X is inevitably going to throw up the constant question of “which consoles will a game release on?” A lot of people are unable to get their hands on the new consoles. Whilst some people don’t want to upgrade and therefore need a version for the PS4 and Xbox One.
We can confirm that Far Cry 6 is going to release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
Far Cry 6 map
The more rural aspects of Far Cry 5 have been swapped out for the exotic features of Yara. Unlike the amazing Far Cry 3, though, a lot of the game will see you bustle your way through backstreets and politically-charged neighborhoods that are heavily-influence by the real-world country of Cuba.
Far Cry 6 feels a lot more urban and more connected, as opposed to the previous games that leave the player wandering alone.
In an interview with Ubisoft Narrative Director Navid Khavari, he said, “the verticality is a complete game-changer. Being able to run across rooftops, use back alleys, fight against some of the toughest opponents in the game in this setting, I think is really unique and fresh. And it completely changes the way the game feels.”
Far Cry 6 story
The game’s official trailer is headlined by a mesmerizing performance from Giancarlo Esposito – known for his recent work in Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, The Boys, and the Mandalorian. He spearheads the game’s natural villain role as Yara’s evil dictator – Antón Castillo.
His foreboding words in the trailer are an attempt to drill his ideology into the head of his 13-year-old son – Diego Castillo. It seems the game will be a marathon adventure of family dissonance as Antón tries to corrupt Diego into following in his ways.
To counteract his deadly political dominance, you’ll take the reins of Dani Rojas, and you’ll have the option of making Dani male or female.
Far Cry 6 gameplay
The aforementioned environment is going to be completely different than what veteran Far Cry players are used to. The claustrophobic nature of Yara’s tight streets will provide a completely different dynamic than what has been seen previously.
Other than that, we expect a lot of the usual rough and tumble combat with meaty gunplay and a variety of different fight options to make the sandbox feel alive. One screenshot (below) shows a makeshift weapon that implies we could see some deeper customization options and salvaging in Far Cry 6.
Also, “Amigos for Hire” sees a return of the buddy system that allows you to be accompanied by helpers of varying natures. The standout buddy is a physically impaired dog called Chorizo that’s lower-half consists of a wheelchair. In the words of Navid Khavari, “The tease for him is that he literally kills with kindness, that’s all I’m gonna say.
Far Cry 6 trailer
To see an up close and personal look at Yara, check out the official trailer for Far Cry 6 below.
Far Cry 6 is already shaping up to be another memorable and explosive blockbuster in the incredible franchise.
With the incomparable Giancarlo Esposito on board, a fabulous new setting that shakes up the template, and next-gen graphics to look forward to, Far Cry 6 could be a contender for game of the year in 2021.

You’ll find plenty that can surprise you the next time to jump into a match of Fortnite, as Epic Games are always introducing new content. This ranges from crossover skins with other franchises like Predator, to tamable Raptors.

Battlefield 6 may not release on PS4 & Xbox One
PS4 and Xbox One owners may be disappointed to hear rumors that the latest Battlefield 6 will potentially be exclusive to the new generation of consoles.
Battlefield fans who are yet to pick up a next-generation console may be disappointed as leaker reveals the developers are considering scrapping release on PS4 & Xbox One as a whole.
Both the PS4 and Xbox One have been difficult to purchase since their respective releases last year. This may be even more devastating for those looking to pick up Battlefield 6 on their last-gen consoles.
Battlefield 6 is set to release this year, with the reveal trailer arriving sometime this summer. Not a lot is known about EA’s latest installment in the series, with some speculating it could be set in the future.
Although there is no concrete evidence, reliable leaker, @_Tom_Henderson_, has not yet heard of Battlefield 6 coming to the now past generation of consoles.
It is possible that PS4 and Xbox One aren’t the focus of EA’s new release, but could still be arriving on the last-gen of consoles upon release.
However, the fact that there has been no news and we are getting ever closer to the reveal and release, leads Tom to believe there is a strong possibility that it won’t be coming to PS4 and Xbox One.
Further, this also leads Tom to believe Battlefield 6 will be releasing on Xbox Game Pass. The loss of players from the older generation of consoles will be a big hit to the day one player count.
However, this loss can be balanced by being introduced on the Xbox Game Pass, leading to a wave of new players on the Xbox Series X.
Whatever happens, it’s safe to say that if you are still in need of the next generation of consoles, you should try your best to get one as soon as possible, especially if you’re a fan of the Battlefield series.

Big map changes and Crypto event details revealed Apex Legends Season 9 leak
Some new Apex Legends leaks point to Olympus going through big changes in Season 9, and Crypto’s heirloom event having a special theme.
A new Apex Legends leak has emerged which hints at some major map changes for Olympus and World’s Edge when Season 9 goes live. It also reveals new details about the Crypto heirloom event too.
Apex Legends has gone through various changes since launch, with each update bringing new content like weapons, heirlooms, and even Legends. The game’s map has also been reformed with new areas like Olympus joining the battle royale.
While Kings Canyon and World’s Edge have been largely altered from their original forms, Olympus has yet to be touched. Now, some new leaks have popped up which suggest that’s all about to change soon.
“Olympus should get the “big map change” at season start,” he tweeted. “World’s Edge should get a small map change mid-season.” So far, it doesn’t seem like anything is planned for Kings Canyon but that could change.
Season 8 completely reformed that map, and left it in a ruined state. So, it’s likely that Respawn might plan some bigger changes for it in future seasons.
Additionally, the data miner also had revealed some new information regarding the upcoming Crypto heirloom event. The season three legend is getting a Jikdo sword as an heirloom, and the event will have a “post-apocalypse” theme.
That event will probably also bring some brand-new skins and other cosmetics for players to equip. With a potential “post-apocalypse” theme, we wouldn’t be too surprised if we ended up seeing some creative new designs.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and are subject to change until Respawn announces something official. That said, we’ll keep checking for further updates, and will inform you once we learn something new.
