Far Cry 6 is the sixth installment of Ubisoft’s Far Cry series. The game is a 2021 action-adventure first-person shooter game developed by Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft. Far Cry 6 was officially released on 7 October 2021, on the platform, including Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Stadia, and Amazon Luna. The game is set in a fictional Caribbean island Yara (loosely based on modern-day Cuba), ruled under a dictatorship by “El Presidente” Antón Castillo. The ruler is raising his son Diego to follow his rule. The player can take the role of guerilla fighter Dani Rojas, attempting to topple Castillo and his regime.
The game overall received a generally positive response, with critics praising the visuals effects, characters, gameplay, music, world design, and performances but with some criticism regarding the lack of innovation, technical issues, and aging gameplay formula.
Far Cry 6 Gameplay
This game is also similar to the previous entries in the series. This game is an action-adventure first-person shooter game set in an open-world environment. The game offer player to navigate on foot or via using various land vehicles, combat vehicles, watercraft, or aircraft. The gameplay of Far Cry 6 is focused on armed and close combat. The game also allows the player to freely roam around and explore Yara’s 88 km² (34 sq mi) environment, which is divided into seven regions with a vast array of terrain ranging from urban areas and dense jungles to mountain ranges and open oceans.
This installment of Far Cry includes many elements. That often found in role-playing games, including upgradeable guerilla camps and gear customization mechanics to uniquely tailor the gameplay experience. There is also introducing a “Rank Level” system in the game, which indicates the player’s rank and highlights the level of a specific region similar to recent famous Assassin’s Creed titles. As the game progresses further and the player explores more of Yara, enemy forces will be equipped with more powerful, higher-level gear. Surrounding military target locations in the game become heavily fortified.
Now, Players can use a wide array of conventional weapons (like sidearms, assault rifles, submachine guns, shotguns, light machine guns, sniper rifles, grenade launchers, and many more). In the capture of appropriate, helpful materials, the player can scavenge via exploring the environment. Each firearm in the game can be customized at workbenches scattered throughout the map.
Far Cry 6 also comes up with a new iteration of gear customization, this game also features a few prototypes of unconventional weaponry, well-known as “Resolver weapons,” with each one offering a certain benefit to the player’s loadout. For example, a silent close-range nailgun or a sling-shot projectile weapon that fires CDs while playing the song “Macarena.”
Other than upgrading the in-game weapon, Far Cry 6 also introduces another new gameplay mechanic, called the “Supremo” backpack device with ultimate weapon ability, which ultimately allows augmenting the playstyle by killing more benefit to the player’s loadout to dominate in combat such as firing homing missiles or seeing through enemies through solid objects.
Unlike the previous titles in the series, this game lets player holster their weapon and blend in a while exploring the surrounding. Unless the player doesn’t cause any trouble or wander through restricted military areas, enemy NPCs won’t attack.
As only traditional stealth mechanics and detection systems were present in the previous games in the series, Far Cry 6 implements notoriety and reputation-style gameplay mechanics similar to the early titles of the famous Assassin’s Creed franchise. If a high slander level is earned because of the volume of actions taken against enemy NPCs, the player will be hunted by special task forces. To reduce the slander meter, the player has to flee the combat area and stay hidden for a specific period.
Setting and characters
The game takes place in 2021 on the fictional one of the Caribbean island Yara. Inspired by Cuba and described as “the largest Far Cry playground till the date” and “a tropical paradise is frozen in time,” though Cuba exists in the game as well. It is ruled by bad dictator “El Presidente” Antón Castillo. He has complete control over Cuba island. Anton Castillo teaches his son Diego, who is unsure of his future, to follow in his footsteps. Esposito described his character as “trying to empower the people to understand that they need strong leaders now.” But they were stuck in the middle of a revolution.
Esposito further says that “his father was a dictator before him, and he wants to empower the people to take their country back. His objective is to use the able resources that they have within the country to survive without allowing outsiders to come in the land and co-opt their scientists, their intellectual property, all of these things.” Esposito continued that Antón is “trying everything to empower his son to take up his mantle and embrace ideas that would allow him to see that soon he will probably be the leader in this country after him.”
The player in the game takes the role of a local Yaran named Dani Rojas, an ex-conscript in the Yaran military turned guerrilla fighting for freedom. He attempts to restore their country to its former glory. The player can select Dani’s gender as well t the start of the game.
Far Cry 6 Ending
The ending of your in Far Cry 6 is pretty linear, as there aren’t many choices to make. You’ll get to the Rank 11 or higher to succeed in the final missions of the game. So, all you have to do is to make sure you do Yaran Leader quests, treasure hunts, and lots of fighting to up your rank beforehand. At this point, we know that Castillo is acutely unhealthy—with cancer that cannot be treated by Vivaro—and will not let himself or Diego be captured by guerrillas. After a short monologue, he shot Diego in the chest and slit his throat.
Finally, Dani gets to choose whether they or Yelena get to become the next president in Castillo’s wake. But Dani refuses, telling Yelena, “Yara is yours. Don’t fuck it up.” Dani becomes the de facto leader of Libertad, and once the credits roll, you’ll be able to get back to fighting the remainder of Castillo’s forces.
Unlike the previous game of the series, where the secret ending was available in the game’s opening sequence, you’ll need to play for an hour before this one becomes available for you. When you come near to Clara, Dani will say that she likes to have a boat to travel to Miami in exchange for helping Libertad. Clara entirely agrees with her, and you’ll be able to play through the Libertad missions.
Once you’ve placed Libertad HQ and destroyed Castillo’s boats, Clara will uphold her end of the bargain and present you with a ropey-looking but sturdy boat and presents you with the choice of either staying or leaving. After the ends, you’ll be able to carry on with the rest of Far Cry 6’s story… or hop in that boat and sail to America.
After this, you can use any boat or air vehicle of your choice to travel towards the edge of the map—you’ll know you’re there as you’ll see a “leaving Yara” message—and can access the secret ending.
All you have to do is keep going, and the screen will eventually go dark before revealing Dani to be lying on a beach in Miami some time frame of three months later. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic gets a brief nod, as well as a message that Castillo has destroyed the Libertad movement and killed Clara. It’s the ‘best ending for Dani as she gets to America, which was always her mission—becoming a guerrilla hero wasn’t in her plans, after all. When you load the game back, you’ll be back at the start of the game but can quickly travel to any locations you’ve discovered so far you don’t need to watch Castillo destroy the boat again.
Far Cry Post-Credit Scene
In the end, we come to the all-important post-credits scene from the game. Juan meets an individual known as the Smuggler, who sounds a not-good lot like Vaas from Far Cry 3. He’s coming as part of Far Cry 6’s season pass content includes villains Pagan Min and Joseph Seed, too, though details of what it will involve are thin on the ground.
