Far Cry 6
And the moment we’ve all been waiting for, Far Cry 6! The release date is set for February 18, 2021, and will be coming to Playstation 5 and Playstation 4, Xbox Series X and Xbox One, Stadia, and PC. Ubisoft showed us Far Cry 6 intro and cut scene that introduced us to Anton Castillo (played by Breaking Bad’s star Giancarlo Esposito aka Big Brother AlmighTEE) and his son Diego. Let me paint the picture for you. The scene starts out with Diego is at his desk writing and such, Anton comes in and starts talking to him. In Anton’s hand is a grenade, he places it in his son’s hands while still talking and pulls out the pin. Diego is now holding this grenade for dear life while his father is having a conversation and preparing him for the leadership of Yara. They both walk to the rooftop of a building while chaos and madness are happening right below them. Anton stretches out Diego’s arms towards the crowds below with the grenade still in hand and * fade to black*. Let me just say, I am all in! The graphics and the short story that I’ve seen already has me hyped!
