New information surrounding Ubisoft’s latest Far Cry sequel, Far Cry 6 emerged Friday morning after a listing on the Hong Kong Playstation Store was discovered. The information confirmed Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian fame as the game’s main antagonist. Carlito will be playing Anton Castillo, dictator of the island of Yara, the “largest Far Cry playground to date.”
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 assume the role of Dani Rojas, a local freedom fighter who will employ “makeshift weapons, vehicles, and Amigos, the new fangs for hire to burn the tyrannical regime to the ground.” The game will also offer a 2-player mode and preorder bonuses, such as a “state-of-the-art Discos Lobos weapon” and “a skin for Chorizo.” Wait, who’s Chorizo?
According to the Far Cry 6 leak listing, the title will release on February 18th, 2021 and a Playstation 5 version of the game will also be available (which means those who purchased the Playstation 4 version will be upgraded for free when possible).
Ubisoft posted a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement of the Far Cry 6 leak on their Twitter account, with a short video starring Anton Castillo lighting a cigar, along with the caption “Anton would not be pleased.”
