Ubisoft confirmed on May 28, 2021 that the new release date for Far Cry 6 is now officially October 7, 2021.
Far Cry 6 Season Pass
The Ubisoft Forward event on June 12, 2021, during E3 2021, had a major surprise for the community with the reveal of the Far Cry 6 Season Pass.
This Season Pass will allow players to play as the main villains from Far Cry 3,4 and 5, including Vaas, Pagan, and Joseph.
You can find the official trailer for the Far Cry 6 Season Pass below:
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.
The Ubisoft Forward event during E3 2021 on June 12 showed off the latest story trailer for the game, and sees Dani accompany other Yara inhabitants on a boat to escape the country. However, Castillo is able to stop the boat, and it is soon revealed that his son Diego had tried to stow away on the boat and escape.
Castillo takes his son with him and orders his men to slaughter all of the people on the boat despite his son asking him to spare them. The video cuts to black with gun firing erupting and the fate of Dani unknown.
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.

Apex Legends Mobile is finally here, but some players still prefer to use a trusty controller over the touchscreen controls. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.
After months of playtests, Apex Legends Mobile was finally released on Android and iOS on May 17, 2022. It features many of the same Legends and weapons as the main game, as well as the mobile-exclusive Fade, all on your mobile phone or tablet.
But even with its fully-fledged touchscreen controls, some players prefer having a controller in their hands when playing first-person shooters. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.
- Does Apex Legends Mobile have controller support?
- When is controller support coming to Apex Legends Mobile?
Does Apex Legends Mobile have controller support?
Apex Legends Mobile does not have controller support at launch but the devs have confirmed that it’s on the way.
Speaking at a press event ahead of Apex Mobile’s launch, the developers said they understand that many prefer to use a controller over the touchscreen controls. “It is super important for us, we understand usability issues, and how much fun it is,” explained one of the devs.
They confirmed that controller support is in the works for Apex Legends Mobile but unfortunately, it didn’t make it to the game for launch.
When is controller support coming to Apex Legends Mobile?
While there’s no concrete timeframe, Apex Legends Mobile’s developers confirmed that controller support should come in the “very near future.”
They explained that “We’re actively exploring [controller support] but haven’t quite got it right.” When exactly it will arrive is anyone’s guess, but it should be here before the end of 2022.
Although there is no official support for it, players can actually pair their Bluetooth controller with their phone and use it. The controllers that are compatible and can pair with your mobile device include the following:
- Xbox Series X/S controller
- Xbox One controller
- PlayStation DualSense controller
- PlayStation 4 controller
- Razer Kishi
Simply activate the pairing mode for the controller and find it on your mobile’s Bluetooth devices section. This will allow you to use the controller on Apex Mobile, but unfortunately, as there is no support for the feature, it can be buggy, especially when it comes to customizing your layout.

How to complete FIFA 22 Thomas Lemar TOTS SBC
Ultimate Team players can secure a dominant midfielder by completing the Thomas Lemar LaLiga TOTS SBC in FIFA 22.
French midfielder Thomas Lemar is available via SBC during the FIFA 22 TOTS promo. Here’s how to complete the FIFA 22 Lemar LaLiga TOTS SBC with the cheapest solution.

Now, players can get their hands on Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Lemar. While the French International usually plays out wide on the left-wing, this TOTS card makes for an interesting change by having him positioned as a CM.
Here’s what you need to know about the FIFA 22 Lemar TOTS SBC, including the cheapest solution.
FIFA 22 LaLiga TOTS Lemar SBC stats
While LaLiga has some incredible CMs to pick from, Lemar’s French nationality is a huge asset, and you’ll be able to get him into a variety of teams outside of LaLiga given the popularity of French players. Due to the position change, Lemar’s Physicality and Defending stats have received huge boosts.
You can utilize Lemar as a CAM, CM, and even CDM, with great success, and with his 94 Short Passing and 93 Long Passing, Lemar will prove to be an excellent distributor of the ball regardless of his positioning in your midfield. Lastly, his 95 Stamina will have you covering the entire pitch for 90 minutes.
How to complete FIFA 22 Lemar TOTS SBC
To complete this SBC, players will need to give up three squads: France, Top Form, and LaLiga. With a value of around 210,000 coins, Lemar is only slightly overpriced, but those who have extra fodder should consider completing this FIFA 22 SBC.

Apex Legends devs confirm fix for Xbox server crashing exploit in Season 13
The Apex Legends devs have officially fixed the Xbox server crashing exploit that was plaguing ranked games in Season 13.
Apex Legends players will be happy to hear that the Xbox server crashing issue that has been ruining games, especially in ranked, has officially been fixed by the devs.
Unfortunately, players on consoles couldn’t enjoy the new system to the extent that they maybe wanted to due to a serious exploit plaguing the experience and causing servers to crash.
Luckily, it seems the devs have fixed the issue with a hotfix that went live on May 25.
In Apex Legends Season 13, Xbox players noticed that they were able to crash the server and prevent themselves from losing Ranked Points by doing so. This was ruining the experience for others, especially as Apex Legends is cross-platform.
While some believed this was a DDoS issue, the devs confirmed it was an exploit on Xbox and pushed a fix on May 18. Unfortunately, the fix didn’t work, and Xbox players were still able to crash servers and ruin matches for others.
This has been very damaging for players who have been trying to rank up and enjoy the brand new ranked changes, even turning people off from playing the game.
A Respawn dev let the community know that another hotfix went live on May 25 which seems to have fixed the issue caused by players on Xbox consoles.
So far, it seems like this fix has done the trick, as players have not been reporting the issue in the community.
Finally, players can enjoy the ranked grind without having to worry about the game crashing and wasting time in a match that could all end in nothing.
With that being said, you may want to check out the best landing spots on Storm Point, which is the ranked map for split 1 of Season 13.
