The Far Cry series has been one of Ubisoft’s most defining open-world action-adventure franchises, focusing on exploration and fighting hostile forces in exotic locales. In Far Cry 6, the franchise heads to a new location known as Yara, loosely based on the island and history of Cuba. Set during a political and social revolution, Yara’s citizens begin their campaign to overthrow the cruel dictator Presidente Castillo. Here’s everything we know about Far Cry 6 so far.
The Story So Far
Though previous entries in the Far Cry series have had some loose connections, Far Cry 6 is an entirely standalone game that doesn’t have many ties to the previous games. This is likely for the best, considering Far Cry 5 and its spin-off New Dawn unexpectedly brought the series into the post-apocalyptic setting. Far Cry 6 takes place in the present, with the modern world still intact. However, this game’s setting is on the island of Yara, a country isolated from the rest of the world due to economic sanctions, as the developers explained in a talk with GameSpot shortly after the reveal Playing as a native of Yara who joins the rebel forces, you’ll make your way through the island dismantling the country’s systems of power before facing off against Presidente Anton Castillo, who’s played by Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian actor Giancarlo Esposito.
