Ubisoft unveiled at The Game Awards today that the new Far Cry game is coming and will be set in a post-apocalyptic world. The new game will be called Far Cry: New Dawn and will release on February 15, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Here’s an overview of the new Far Cry game:
Set seventeen years after a global nuclear catastrophe, Far Cry New Dawn brings players into a wildly beautiful and radically transformed Hope County, Montana. Life has begun to emerge from the chaos, but the survivors now face a new threat – the merciless Highwaymen and their leaders The Twins, Mickey and Lou. Raised in a lawless frontier, the twin sisters and their band of scavengers live only for today and have descended upon Hope County to take all available resources. To push back this devastating threat, players must help the Survivors grow stronger, craft a makeshift arsenal and form unexpected alliances to fight for survival in a dangerous new frontier.
At the Homebase, players will prepare to face off against the threat of the Highwaymen. The Homebase, called Prosperity, is the stronghold of the Survivors. Here, players can craft makeshift weapons and vehicles and train their Guns for Hire – including new and familiar faces. As players progress, they can upgrade the Homebase for more powerful weapons and gear. The Homebase is also a launchpad to Expeditions, where for the first time in Far Cry, the adventure is more than local. Set in memorable locations across the US, from wetlands to canyons and more, Expeditions drop players into unique locations where they must grab a package of valuable materials and get out, quickly.
Far Cry: New Dawn is currently developed by Ubisoft Montreal with the support off Ubisoft Shanghai, Ubisofft Kiev, and Ubisoft Bucahrest. According to Ubisoft, Far Cry: New Dawn is a direct sequel to Far Cry 5. Players can recruit an eclectic cast of Guns and Fangs or Fire, or a Friend for Hire for co-op play.
Far Cry: New Dawn will be available on February 15, 2019 for $39.99.
