Ubisoft has released a brief trailer for what looks to be a brand new Far Cry game, and it looks like it’s going to be set in a post-apocalyptic world. No news has yet been given on whether or not this will be a brand new Far Cry release or some kind of new project using the franchises name.
The trailer can be viewed below:
The trailer itself may be on the short side, but it does reveal some interesting setting details. The weapon that features in the trailer seems to be on the unconventional side – a cross-bow made from the wreckage of a nuclear blast, with the wielder of the weapon revealing how they felt hope after the rain and winds had cleared from the blast, but they were wrong. Our guess would be a rather unoriginal faction rivalry taking place in this post-apocalyptic setting, similar to what we’ve seen before with the likes of Fallout and The Walking Dead series.
We don’t normally see an annual Far Cry game from Ubisoft, who have instead opted to alternate between a main title release and a spin-off. For example, Far Cry 3 was released in 2012 and was followed in 2013 by the standalone game Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. It is, therefore, quite likely that this will be an in-between successor to Far Cry 5, rather than a surprise new full game.
Both of these outcomes will be exciting for Far Cry fans and fans of post-apocalyptic settings alike. Be sure to check back tomorrow after the Game Awards have taken place and more details have been announced.
