It seems Ubisoft is finding it hard to deal with leaks. A few days ago, we got to see leaked gameplay footage from the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. ThisÂ videoÂ is almost 30 minutes long and is available on YouTube. A screenshot from Watch Dogs Legion also surfaced online a while ago.
Now, crucial details of Ubisoft’s much-anticipated FPS title have reached the Internet after a mistake by the PlayStation store Hong Kong. Sony has mistakenly listed Far Cry 6 on its online store for the PlayStation. Breaking Badâs GiancarloÂ Esposito will be the villain and game drops on February 18, 2021. A teaser has also been dropped.
The listing provided some exciting details about the game.
What Is Far Cry 6 About?
The description for the game reads, “Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As a 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.”
Yara will be the “largest Far Cry playground to date”
This leak came after rumors regarding Giancarlo Esposito, who appears in Breaking Bad, playing the role of a villain in this entry in the Far Cry franchise.
This is not the first leak about Far Cry, but it is one of the most important ones. People were anticipating that the next game would be set in the tropics, and now it has been confirmed. You will play as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran working for the rebels in, what will be, the biggest sandbox environment in a Far Cry game. The map will feature dense jungles, exotic beaches, and the beautiful capital city of Yara, Esperanza.
In addition to the single-player campaign, Far Cry 6 will also offer a two-player Co-op mode. The leak also mentions that the game would come to current-gen consoles as well as for the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The release date for the game is mentioned as 18th February 2021.
Whether Ubisoft will reveal the game at the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event or not is not clear. Still, Ubisoft acknowledged the leak of Far Cry 6 with aÂ teaser. The short clip shared has Breaking Badâs Giancarlo Esposito smoking a cigar followed by a cryptic message of more ominous to come in the future.
