With its release date slowly creeping up, Ubisoft has just dropped a jaw-dropping one-hour Far Cry 6 gameplay video on Xbox Series X.
Ubisoft has dropped a one-hour hands-on demo of the game to accompany the many different previews floating around the internet this morning, providing our first in-depth look at what may well be the largest Far Cry game yet.
The footage is from the Xbox Series X version of Far Cry 6, and details a number of key changes and features that look to set the game apart from its predecessors.
Notably, the game appears to have a stronger RPG philosophy than more recent Far Cry entries, with enemy health bars enhancing the strategic element of battle during combat.
The Far Cry 6 footage shown in the trailer is also running superbly on Xbox Series X, with the game performing well at 60fps throughout the playthrough. Be sure to check out the video at 1080p and 60fps to see the game in all its true glory.
As is always the case with Far Cry, this latest entry brings with it a charismatic — and sure-to-be utterly psychotic — villain by the name of Anton Castillo, played by the very awesome Giancarlo Esposito. You would recognise him as one of the key characters and main antagonist in season 4 of Breaking Bad, Gus Fring.
As is to be expected, the island is on the brink of civil war, with a revolution striving to overthrow Anton and his party.
Esposito’s casting here probably shouldn’t come as much of a surprise: the actor’s range, and sinister, engulfing glare fit the mould of Far Cry villain perfectly. We’ve seen him go from likeable, trustworthy and reasonable to completely and utterly psychotic and unpredictable as Gus Fring in Breaking Bad, and that already reads like the perfect Far Cry villaint.
He’s got a super long list of credits to his name, most recently as Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian.
Here’s hoping for an equally awesome performance in Far Cry 6. Check out the one-hour gameplay below!
