Far Cry 6 debuts a new story trailer at Gamescom
Ubisoft has unveiled its newest story trailer for, the next entry in its popular open-world action franchise. Revealed during the , the trailer showcased antagonist Anton Castillo — played by actor Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Mandalorian)– who uses his immense resources as the dictator and ruler of the island of Yara to push back against growing rebel forces. It appears the plot is following his use of slave labor in his tobacco farms that actually have developed a treatment for Cancer, definitely an interesting take. Far Cry is known for having THE BEST VILLIANS, and I have no doubt Giancarlo will do a fantastic job on this – my most anticipated game of 2021!
The central locale of Far Cry 6 is Yara, loosely inspired by the history and setting of Cuba. Like previous Far Cry games, players explore a lush, vibrant world while reveling in the familiar open-world hijinks and fun to be expected in a Far Cry game. While Far Cry 6 looks to have a heavy, emotionally charged story, pushed to the forefront by Giancarlo Esposito’s menacing performance, there’s still plenty of absurd moments to find yourself knee-deep in and a bevy of oddball characters to meet.
