Far Cry 6 hands-on preview: Enough issues to make us say “ay, Dios mío”

Roughly six weeks before Far Cry 6's upcoming launch on PC and consoles, Ubisoft elected to unlock the entirety of this first-person shooter's opening beats for a press-only, hands-on demo. This kind of access differs from the carefully selected "slices" we sometimes play in preview events, as those are meant to show an unfinished game in its best light.

Far Cry 6 is more RPG than ever

Like seemingly every other series in Ubisoft’s catalogue, Far Cry is slowly but surely becoming an RPG. Not in the traditional sense, in which you create a character and immerse yourself in them through gameplay decisions and specialisation, but in a similar way to Assassin’s Creed Origins – that of a soft reboot that places gear and character level at the fore of customisation.

Far Cry 6 is Changing Up the Far Cry Formula Once Again

The Far Cry series has changed a lot over the 17 years since the original launched on PC in 2004. Not everything has been as drastic as Far Cry 2’s choice to abandon the genetically engineered man-monsters of the first, or the introduction of RPG-style skill trees in FC3, but almost every game has done its part to tweak things in some way or another. Far Cry 6 will certainly feel extremely familiar to longtime fans, but it also takes some big swings at shaking things up. It’s a combo that, based on my experience with the first few hours in a recent remote demo, mostly works really well – though I’m not entirely sold yet on some of its newer elements.

Far Cry 6's 'Supremo' backpacks are so OP they feel like cheat codes

I usually play Far Cry games using stealth rather than gung-ho bravado. Scurry around in a crouch, scan and tag enemies, and pick them off quietly one at a time. You really haven't lived until you've taken down an entire stronghold without a single enemy seeing you. There are plenty of times when stealth goes sideways and I have to start blowing things up, but my weapon of choice is usually something sharp and silent.

Far Cry 6 is a huge game in every sense | Hands-on Preview

From its massive budget, to its massive map and Hollywood star on the cover, Far Cry 6 is a big game in every sense. But after the relative misstep of Far Cry New Dawn - which was released in 2019 to mixed reviews and reports of low sales - Far Cry 6 is a huge game for the series as a whole too.

New Far Cry 6 Story Trailer Shows Just How Sinister and Dark Anton Castillo’s Rule Over Yara Is

Far Cry 6 villain Anton Castillo—played by the celebrated Giancarlo Esposito—is a strong-willed dictator, ruling Yara through a blend of charisma and brute force in the pursuit of what he says i s a “better Yara.” But the latest Far Cry 6 story trailer focuses on the darker aspects of Castillo’s rule; a sinister fist lacking empathy for the people.

Castillo is using questionable means and exploiting the people of Yara to facilitate production of Viviro.
