The long wait is finally over. The Ubisoft Original, Far Cry 6 was launched for Google Stadia on 7th October 2021.
Other platforms include PC (Microsoft Windows), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S
Far Cry 6’s story is based in the fictional country of Yara, a tropical paradise in the heart of the Caribbean. Antón Castillo (Giancarlo Esposito) is the dictator of that country. And to say he’s not a very nice person would be an understatement.
Dictator Castillo is using his military devices to limit what the civilians of Yara can do and where they can go. Furthermore, he has formulated an anti-cancer agent called Viviro.
Viviro is, oddly enough, a product of Yara’s tobacco plantations. Now, I’m no expert on the subject, but the suggestion that Tobacco, of all things, could lead to a cure for cancer seems somewhat dubious to me.
Alongside the hard to believe claims, Antón uses conscripted slave labour to cultivate Viviro, which he plans to export worldwide for massive profits and to try and get round internation trade sanctions imposed on his country due to his oppressive regime
You play the role of Dani Rojas, part of the guerilla fighting force trying to take down madman Castillo in this open world first-person action shooter game with a vast array of terrain ranging from urban areas and dense jungles to mountain ranges and open oceans.
Unfortunately, Far Cry 6 is currently locked to 30 frames per second whether you are playing it in 4k or not. For some people this will be a deal-breaker. Although, for many, such as myself, won’t find this a problem.
