Ubisoft debuted the first trailer for Far Cry 6 as part of its Ubisoft Forward digital conference today. It was dark and left a pretty big impact on fans. Take a look at the Cinematic trailer below.

The cinematic trailer obviously didn’t have any gameplay but showed a city in revolt under the regime of a character played by Giancarlo Esposito, who is perhaps best known in roles such as The Usual Suspects, The Jungle Book (2016), and, of course, Gus Fring in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.

Far Cry 6 is set to launch on February 18th, 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, and Google’s Stadia cloud gaming service. It’s the latest entry in the series since 2019’s Far Cry: New Dawn, a post-apocalyptic sequel to 2018’s Far Cry 5.

You will be playing as Dani Rojas, a guerrilla fighter (not shown in the trailer) trying to take down the president’s rule. It’s a character that can be played as either female or male.

While heavily based on Cuba, Far Cry 6 is set on the fictional island of Yara. Ubisoft describes the country as “its most ambitious open world to date, with the series’ classic tropical beaches and jungles mixed in beside Esperanza, its sprawling capital city.”

The time setting for the game is unclear, Castillo has turned it into a slave state, and there is an attempt at revolution in progress, organized by different guerrilla groups with conflicting beliefs.
