Video game fans of all ages worldwide are hotly anticipating various video games that are due to be launched in 2021. With this, here is a look at Ubisoft Toronto’s Far Cry 6, one of the most eagerly awaited video games set to debut on various video game platforms next year.
Developed by Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft, Far Cry 6 is an upcoming first-person shooter game and the sixth main installment of the Far Cry series for Amazon Luna, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia.
The game is set on Yara, a fictional Caribbean island-inspired by Cuba and described as “the largest Far Cry playground to date” and “a tropical paradise froze in time.”
Yara is ruled by “El Presidente” Anton Castillo (portrayed by Giancarlo Esposito), a fascist dictator with full control over the island.
Castillo is raising his son Diego (Anthony Gonzalez), who is unsure of his own future, to follow in his footsteps. The player takes the role of guerilla fighter Dani Rojas, attempting to topple Castillo and his regime.
Esposito described his character as a leader “trying to empower the people to understand that they need strong leadership now,” but is stuck in the middle of a revolution.
Esposito further added, “His father was a dictator before him, and he wants to empower the people to take their country back. His goal is to use the resources that they have within the country to survive without allowing outsiders to come in and co-opt their scientists, their intellectual property, all of these things”.
Esposito continued that Antón is “trying to empower his son to take up his mantle and really embrace ideas that would allow him to see that soon he will probably be the next leader in this country.”
The player takes the role of a local Yaran named Dani Rojas, a guerrilla soldier fighting for freedom who attempts to restore their nation back to its former glory; the player can select Dani’s gender at the start of the game.
