Far Cry 6 Leaks Via PS Store Releases February 2021
Ubisoft really isn’t having a good time with leaks at the moment, as Far Cry 6 has reportedly been leaked by the PlayStation Store with a full description and release date revealed, allegedly releasing on February 18th 2021. A listing for Far Cry 6, which appeared on the Hong Kong version of the PlayStation Store. Ubisoft has not officially announced the new Far Cry game, but now appears likely do so on July 12 at its Ubisoft Forward digital event.
So first of all this again directly correlates with the previous rumors of Far Cry 6 taking place on a tropical island, this time in another fictional area called Yara. Featuring what sounds like one of the biggest maps in Far Cry to date, certain locations you visit will include jungles, beaches, and the capital city of Yara, Esperanza. Players will also take control of a local Yaran as they become a guerilla fighter to liberate the nation.
Esposito appears to be playing the role of a dictator named Anton Castillo, according to a piece of artwork and a story description from the PlayStation Store listing. That listing reads:
Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As the dictator of Yara, Anton Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps. Their ruthless oppression has ignited a revolution.
Players will take on the role of Dani Rojas, described as a local Yaran and who “become[s] a guerrilla fighter to liberate the nation.” Rojas will battle Anton’s military on “the largest Far Cry playground to date across jungles, beaches and Esperanza[,] the capital city of Yara,” according the listing. “Employ makeshift weapons, vehicles, and Amigos, the new Fangs for Hire to burn the tyrannical regime to the ground,” a gameplay description reads.
It also seems like there will some sort of makeshift weapon customization, as well as vehicles, as players take on the resources of guerilla firepower. There’ll also be some friendly units you can hire to help out as Fangs for Hire.
Far Cry 6 will supposedly include an offline single player as well as online multiplayer for 2 players. Optional in-game purchases will be included, and will release for current and next-gen consoles. There’s no information on what the next-gen version will include like improved graphical features, but most likely we’ll find out about that during Ubisoft Forward’s online event, where Far Cry 6 is sure to be officially revealed.
While listing is for PlayStation 4, the description indicates that a PlayStation 5 version will be released, and that players who purchase a current-generation version of Far Cry 6 will get the next-gen upgrade for free.
