Far Cry 6 plunges players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time.

Far Cry 6 plunges players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. President Antón Castillo (Esposito) vows to restore his country to its former glory while grooming his son Diego (Gonzalez) to follow in his footsteps. Yet paradise has a price, and enriching his country means subjugating those who don’t adhere to his vision. In this island nation in turmoil, players will experience the adrenaline and chaos of guerrilla combat as they are swept up in a revolutionary movement to take down a tyrant.

As local Yaran and military dropout Dani Rojas, players will be swept up in the guerrilla movement as the brutality of Antón’s rule reaches new heights and the fire of revolution ignites across the country. Players will be able to choose to play Dani as a woman or a man, and will join forces with a colorful cast of characters, including Clara Garcia, the leader of revolutionary group Libertad, or Juan Cortez, a jaded ex-KGB spy and guerrilla master as they fight their way to take down the tyrant.

To succeed against the overwhelming power of Antón’s army, players will embrace the “resolver” spirit, a philosophy of resourcefulness found across Yara, making use of everything and whatever they have to inflict chaos on the regime. Fueled by the creativity of “resolver” mastermind Juan Cortez, Far Cry 6 features a broad and unexpected arsenal of customizable “resolver” weapons and tools. From a motorcycle engine powered minigun to a homing missile throwing backpack, pushing the “resolver” spirit to the limit will grant Dani the power of an entire guerrilla army.

With performances from renowned actor and Emmy Award Nominee Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul, The Boys, The Mandalorian) joined by Anthony Gonzalez (Coco), a score created by film and television composer Pedro Bromfman (Narcos), and an opening sequence directed by Emmy Award winner Patrick Clair (Westworld, True Detective), Far Cry 6 brings in Hollywood-calibre talent to bolster the narrative experience.


During the Far Cry 6 Expansion Reveal Livestream, Ubisoft announced that the Far Cry 6: Lost Between Worlds expansion is coming to Far Cry 6 on December 6 for $19.99, or as part of the Upgrade Pass, on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, and PC (Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store). Players can also subscribe to Ubisoft+ on PC and Amazon Luna.

In Far Cry 6: Lost Between Worlds, players will begin a thrilling new chapter of Dani Rojas’ story, set in a fractured version of Yara. Following their exploration of a mysterious meteorite impact site, Dani will discover themselves in a twisted space between worlds accompanied by a noncorporeal lifeform named Fai. Players will need to repair Fai’s broken spacecraft by collecting five lost shards, each increasing Dani’s overall stats for survivability, bringing them one step closer to escape.

To recover the missing shards, players will need to rely on their guerrilla skills to navigate through 15 challenging and intense trials called Rifts, where they must defeat Shardfaces, humanoid and animal crystalline enemies, lurking around every corner. In each distinctive Rift, such as a shattered fortress suspended in the sky and an underwater Esperanza full of deadly traps, players will encounter different dangers and otherworldly obstacles. Players can choose how they approach each Rift and will uncover powerful weapons and tools along the way, and collect energy fragments scattered throughout the area, allowing them to revive and retry a Rift, if necessary. With multiple branching paths, platforming exploration, and intense moment-to-moment action, players will have a unique experience with each run as they master this twisted world. Upon mission completion, players will receive Fai’s powerful gear and will be able to take it back to Yara for an ethereal edge in the ongoing fight against the regime.

Additionally, Ubisoft announced that Far Cry 6 will offer a free trial for new players starting today on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, as well as PC through the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store. Players will be able to explore the Isla Santuario region and those who want to continue their fight for freedom will keep their game progression and enjoy discounts on the game, Season Pass and DLC content.

Title Update 6 is now available, and players can return to Yara and relive their favorite missions stronger than ever with the highly-anticipated addition of New Game+ mode, allowing them to bring their endgame gear and weapons back to the start of their next playthrough. Title Update 6 also introduces a Completionist Aid feature, providing players with guided assistance in uncovering all of Yara’s hidden secrets.

Ubisoft is also working with Audible to tell the story of the events leading up to Far Cry 6. The six-episode audio series features the cast of Far Cry 6, including Giancarlo Esposito as Antón Castillo and will be available in 2023.

Key Features:

  • Join the revolution to push back against the oppressive regime of dictator Antón Castillo and his teenage son Diego, brought to life by Hollywood stars Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) and Anthony Gonzalez (Coco).
  • Dive into a blockbuster experience as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran defending their country from a tyrant’s rule. Choose to play Dani as male or female and immerse yourself in the journey of a citizen turned guerrilla revolutionary.
  • Meet a colorful cast of unforgettable characters throughout the rich world of Yara, from a jaded ex-KGB spy to a wiener dog who’s as cute as he is lethal.

  • Explore the most expansive Far Cry playground to date, and unite a revolution across the jungles, beaches, and towns of an entire island nation.
  • Jump into the action and chaos of guerrilla combat at the heart of a revolution.
  • When you’re outgunned and outnumbered, every guerrilla must become a one-person army. In an island frozen in time, you’ll use what you have to make what you need and leverage unconventional weapons in a fight against an unyielding military regime.
  • No guerrilla should go it alone, so pair up with an all-new animal companion like Chorizo, the adorable wiener dog no soldier can ignore.

Fans who purchase Far Cry 6 on Xbox One or PS4 will be able to upgrade their version on a next-gen platform at no additional cost after the launch of Xbox Series X and PS5.
