Far Cry 6 details and release date leaked ahead of Ubisoft reveal
Far Cry 6 has been leaked by the Hong Kong PlayStation Store, confirming previously leaked details and a release date.
It was already widely expected that Ubisoft would announce Far Cry 6 at its upcoming E3 replacement, Ubisoft Forward, this weekend.
Unfortunately for Ubisoft, the game was leaked earlier today via the Hong Kong PlayStation Store, confirming a number of details about the game, including a release date.
The listing has since been deleted, but a user on ResetEra was able to grab an image of it and provide a rough translation on the details provided.
First of all, as you may have noticed already, it confirms a previous leak which claimed that Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito would be playing a character, which turns out to be the main villain, Anton Castillo.
It also confirms another leak that the game wouldn’t be set in America. Instead, it will take place in the fictional country of Yara, which is described as a ‘tropical paradise frozen in time.’
Castillo is Yara’s ruthless dictator and you play as Dani Rojas, who seeks to overthrow Castillo and liberate the country.
The listing advertises Yara as ‘the largest Far Cry playground to date’ and that you will be able to use makeshift weapons, vehicles, and the returning animal companions feature, which have been renamed to amigos.
While we can probably expect it to come to other platforms, this listing does confirm that the game will come to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on 18 February.
Also, anyone who purchases a digital copy of the PlayStation 4 game is entitled to a free PlayStation 5 copy too. It doesn’t clarify if those who buy physical copies will be given a similar offer, but it seems likely that they will.
At the very least, all will be made more abundantly clear this weekend when Ubisoft provides official details itself.
Ubisoft Forward will take place on Sunday 12 July at 8pm.
