'Far Cry 6' Free to Play Across All Platforms This Weekend - Trailer

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.

Far Cry 6 will be available to play for free from February 16-20 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC. 

The free weekend will give players access to all of Far Cry 6's base game, including the crossover missions inspired by pop culture: Rambo: All the Blood, and The Vanishing, a Stranger Things mystery. If you don't want your time in Yara to end after the weekend, Far Cry 6 will be on sale for up to 70% off for a limited time. Purchase the game after the free weekend ends, and all your progress will carry over.

During the free weekend, players can also play Far Cry 6 in co-op, joining forces with friends to liberate Yara. Everyone who plays co-op during the free weekend will receive the White Lotus Sniper Rifle, and those who play co-op but don't own the game will receive it in their inventory when they purchase it. Far Cry 6 is also part of Ubisoft Connect's Share Play program, a free new feature that allows you to share your screen and controls with friends virtually.

For a limited time, get the Standard, Deluxe, and Gold Editions of Far Cry 6 for up to 70% off, the Game of the Year Edition for up to 67% off, and save up to 60% on the Game of the Year Upgrade pass and Season Pass. You can also get Far Cry 6's recent expansion, Lost Between Worlds, for up to 50% off. If you miss Far Cry 6's free weekend, don't worry - the game has an always-available free trial that gives you access to the full game, with progress limited to the first island.
