'Far Cry 6' To Get Stranger Things Crossover And Free Weekend - Trailer

by Rainier on March 22, 2022 @ 10:56 p.m. PDT

Far Cry 6 plunges players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time.

Far Cry 6 plunges players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. President Antón Castillo (Esposito) vows to restore his country to its former glory while grooming his son Diego (Gonzalez) to follow in his footsteps. Yet paradise has a price, and enriching his country means subjugating those who don’t adhere to his vision. In this island nation in turmoil, players will experience the adrenaline and chaos of guerrilla combat as they are swept up in a revolutionary movement to take down a tyrant.

As local Yaran and military dropout Dani Rojas, players will be swept up in the guerrilla movement as the brutality of Antón’s rule reaches new heights and the fire of revolution ignites across the country. Players will be able to choose to play Dani as a woman or a man, and will join forces with a colorful cast of characters, including Clara Garcia, the leader of revolutionary group Libertad, or Juan Cortez, a jaded ex-KGB spy and guerrilla master as they fight their way to take down the tyrant.

To succeed against the overwhelming power of Antón’s army, players will embrace the “resolver” spirit, a philosophy of resourcefulness found across Yara, making use of everything and whatever they have to inflict chaos on the regime. Fueled by the creativity of “resolver” mastermind Juan Cortez, Far Cry 6 features a broad and unexpected arsenal of customizable “resolver” weapons and tools. From a motorcycle engine powered minigun to a homing missile throwing backpack, pushing the “resolver” spirit to the limit will grant Dani the power of an entire guerrilla army.

With performances from renowned actor and Emmy Award Nominee Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul, The Boys, The Mandalorian) joined by Anthony Gonzalez (Coco), a score created by film and television composer Pedro Bromfman (Narcos), and an opening sequence directed by Emmy Award winner Patrick Clair (Westworld, True Detective), Far Cry 6 brings in Hollywood-calibre talent to bolster the narrative experience.

Far Cry 6 is hosting a free weekend, running March 24-27, on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC through the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. This game and its DLCs are also included in a Ubisoft+ subscription on PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna.

New players can pre-load Far Cry 6 on March 22 at 12 PM PT on PC and PlayStation platforms, and will have access to the full game when the free weekend begins, including the upcoming Stranger Things crossover mission inspired by the Netflix series, and all free downloadable content published to date – all playable in co-op. Those who want to continue exploring the island of Yara in Far Cry 6 after the free weekend can keep their progress and purchase the game and its Season Pass at big discounts:

To coincide with the free weekend, Ubisoft announced The Vanishing, a new free Stranger Things crossover mission, available March 24 for all Far Cry 6 players.

The Vanishing will bring a stealth-horror-survival gameplay experience to Far Cry players for the first time with mysterious characters and new lore. In The Vanishing, players will enter a twisted version of Yara inspired by the Upside-Down, where Dani discovers that Yarans are disappearing and no one is safe – not even Chorizo. Players will be able to explore Stranger Things-inspired locations, such as a hidden bunker and an abandoned laboratory. Dani’s mission – with new skins for a flamethrower and shotgun – is to search for Chorizo and find out what happened to the abducted Yarans.

Key Features:

  • Join the revolution to push back against the oppressive regime of dictator Antón Castillo and his teenage son Diego, brought to life by Hollywood stars Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) and Anthony Gonzalez (Coco).
  • Dive into a blockbuster experience as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran defending their country from a tyrant’s rule. Choose to play Dani as male or female and immerse yourself in the journey of a citizen turned guerrilla revolutionary.
  • Meet a colorful cast of unforgettable characters throughout the rich world of Yara, from a jaded ex-KGB spy to a wiener dog who’s as cute as he is lethal.
  • For the first time in Far Cry, experience a sprawling capital city: Esperanza. Take down Antón in the seat of his power by staying hidden or engaging Antón’s army in an all-out firefight in the streets.
  • Explore the most expansive Far Cry playground to date, and unite a revolution across the jungles, beaches, and towns of an entire island nation.
  • Jump into the action and chaos of guerrilla combat at the heart of a revolution.
  • When you’re outgunned and outnumbered, every guerrilla must become a one-person army. In an island frozen in time, you’ll use what you have to make what you need and leverage unconventional weapons in a fight against an unyielding military regime.
  • No guerrilla should go it alone, so pair up with an all-new animal companion like Chorizo, the adorable wiener dog no soldier can ignore.

Fans who purchase Far Cry 6 on Xbox One or PS4 will be able to upgrade their version on a next-gen platform at no additional cost after the launch of Xbox Series X and PS5.

Far Cry 6 is available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Stadia and PC (Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Store, and UPLAY+).
