Far Cry 6 embraces zany, explosive insanity – craft makeshift weapons from collected scraps or seize one of many many “Amigos For Hire” earlier than you set out on one other bombastic escapade. We’ve seen the lovely Dachshund, Chorizo, and his semiaquatic reptilian counterpart, Guapo. However what different animals will enable you wage warfare towards Antón Castillo and his militaristic goons? Right now, a brand new companion acquired a cinematic/gameplay trailer. Meet Chicharrón, the savage rooster!
Titled “Chicharrón Run,” Far Cry 6’s newest footage offers us a tiny glimpse into the fowl’s tragic backstory. Whereas lazing away on a seaside, Chicharrón is captured and caged. When he lastly sees the sunshine of day once more, he’s pressured to commerce the tender sands of paradise for the coarse filth of a cockfighting area. He ultimately escapes – pursued by trigger-happy Yaran troopers – and finds his calling alongside protagonist Dani and their crew of armed guerrilla revolutionaries. Donning two trendy spike chokers, Chicharrón can deal with his enemies to the bottom and … peck them to dying? What do you suppose occurs to the guard he assaults within the video above?
Far Cry 6 is likely to be a wild trip, however it’s additionally a tribute to the tradition and variety of Cuba. Narrative director Navid Khavari talked with us about Ubisoft Toronto’s boots-on-the-ground method to staying real to the guerrilla philosophy/mentality, “We got to meet with the locals and explore the culture and the diversity, but we also got to talk to actual guerrillas who fought in the revolution there,” Khavari mentioned. “There are all sorts of reasons people will join up and fight in a guerilla revolution. Some want to shoot guns and feel that adrenaline kick, while others are looking to do it for the country and for the flag. I think that dynamic was really interesting narratively.”
Far Cry 6 launches for PlayStation 5, Xbox Collection X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, PC, and Mac on October 7.
