Ubisoft confirms the Far Cry 6 leak on the PlayStation Store by deploying a short video on Twitter. The latter, full of humor, shows us an Anton Castillo who is particularly upset and ready to do battle. The French brand is also taking the opportunity to give us an appointment on July 12, the date when Ubisoft will hold a major conference to present its future projects including the famous Far Cry 6.
A few days before the Ubisoft Forward, the Hong Kong version of the PlayStation Store shares with a little too much advance the page of Far Cry 6, with a first artwork of the game. This confirms the participation of actor Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), already suspected by previous rumors to embody the villain of the new episode of the saga.
The description of the game indicates that it will plant its frame on the tropical island of Yara. The dictator of this country “frozen in times “, Anton Castillo, seeks to restore the past grandeur of his territory, and prepares his son Diego,”who follows him in his bloody journey“, to regain power. For our part, we should be Dani Rojas, a local and member of the guerrillas who will try to liberate his country from oppression. Between the capital of Yara, the beaches and the jungle, this would be the biggest map in franchise history. At your disposal: homemade weapons, vehicles, and the Amigos, your new allies. Finally, a multi mode with two players is mentioned.
Another important detail, the release date seems to be fixed at February 18, 2021. The owners of the PlayStation 4 version would be entitled, later, to a free update on PlayStation 5. Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC versions should be planned in parallel. The card finally indicates a pre-order bonus including an advanced weapon “Discos Locos” as well as a skin for “Chorizo”.
Now wait until Sunday to get a confirmation. Contacted by us, Ubisoft did not wish to speak about this leak.
