After the leak, earlier today, Ubisoft took the stage of The Game Awards to clear the air and confirm that Far Cry New Dawn is, in fact, a new game and that it's coming really soon!
Suddenly, the ending to Far Cry 5 makes complete and total sense.
Set 17 years after the events of Far Cry 5, Ubisoft brings players back Hope County, Montana to experience the land and its inhabitat after the bombs dropped. New, innovative weaponry and elements from animal elements from Far Cry 5 set in a post-apocalyptic land make Far Cry 5 feel like it was inspired by a Bethesda flagship product, but without all of the doom and gloom.
Take a look at it for yourself to see the similarities and the differences Far Cry New Dawn brings.
Introducing Far Cry New Dawn, the standalone sequel to Far Cry 5. Watch the World Premiere trailer and discover how Hope County, Montana has changed seventeen years after a global nuclear catastrophe.
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 releases February 15, 2019 for $39.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One!
