GameOn Magazine|Issue 145 - Nov 2021
Three years on from the release of Far Cry 5, Ubisoft have once again blessed with their chaotic, open-world game where you overthrow a mean tyrannical leader. If you enjoy that, you’ll enjoy Far Cry 6.

For those a little more unsure about taking the plunge into another FarCry, the newest instalment has a plethora of things it refines whilst also regressing in other areas.

Before all that, who is this game’s tyrant flavour of the month? We find ourselves in the fictional Caribbean island of Yara, ruled by dictator Antón Castillo. The player takes control of a soon-to-be Guerilla Dani Rojas. As is seemingly tradition now in Ubisoft titles, you can select the gender of your Dani before gameplay begins. As Dani, the player attempts to free Yara from Castillo’s reign, all whilst the Yara dictator is attempting to manipulate his son to lead a similar brutal regime.

Brutal is a keyword because this game has relentless violence. From early game massacres, to prison cell tortures, Far Cry 6 pushes the violence levels to a new height for the franchise. Although the game offers up the usual colourful collection of protagonists, Antón Castillo is probably the series’ most complete villain. He comes with the violence you’d come to expect from the series, but no one has ever seemed so cold-blooded or calculated before this. There’s no cause, or reason Castillo uses to pull the wool over people's eyes. He simply demands control of Yara and expects that to continue through his bloodline.
