Sun, surf, and social revolution – Far Cry 6 has it all. After a three year wait, the latest instalment of the long-running action-adventure shooter is just around the corner.
Set on the tropical island of Yara, which is currently under the thumb of a fascist dictatorship, Far Cry 6 puts you into the boots of freedom fighter Danji Rojas, as you fight alongside local revolutionaries to liberate your fellow people.
To do this, you’ll need to take to the streets and jungle of Yara, where you’ll resort to guerilla tactics to take down Yara’s current ruler, “El Presidente” Antón Castillo – played by Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad), who continues his recent run of villainous performances.
