Far Cry 6 isn’t even here yet, and already Ubisoft is talking about the post-launch roadmap for the sport. Of course, that’s par for the course for Ubisoft, and for those that are looking forward to Far Cry 6, it seems that the corporate features a lot of post-launch content lined up. From crossovers and special operations to weekly insurgencies and event throwbacks to old Far Cry games, it seems that Far Cry 6 will have an in-depth mixture of free and paid DLC.
Perhaps the most important reveal of the day is that of Far Cry 6’s crossover missions. There’ll be three altogether, and every one of them are going to be free. the primary crossover mission features Dani Rojas and Danny Trejo and task players with helping Trejo deliver his homemade tacos across the island of Yara. The second mission will have players teaming up with a Rambo superfan and going toe-to-toe with the Yara island military. In contrast, the third mission will task players to seek out their friend, Chorizo, during a Stranger Things crossover.
Other free DLCs include special operations and weekly insurgencies. Within the operations, players will be stealing chemical weapons from arms dealers and attempting to form them to the extraction point while managing the warmth levels of the weapons they stole. Unfortunately, insurgencies didn’t get much of an outline in today’s trailer, but Ubisoft did say that they’ll be available within the game from launch day.
Then we come to the Season Pass content, filled with throwback challenges centred around the villains from Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4, and Far Cry 5. These challenges aren’t meant to be one-and-done type deals. Still, rather more roguelike in nature where players start with nothing, collect items and weapons as they explore the planet, and regularly die while keeping some persistent upgrades between runs. Some quiet game mode supported Far Cry: Blood Dragon will also be included within the season pass, but we don’t know which will entail.
So, even before launch, Ubisoft features many post-launch contents lined up for Far Cry 6. Of course, much of the content will be free, but those season pass throwbacks are intriguing, to mention the smallest amount. Far Cry 6 launches for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Stadia, and Luna on October 7th, 2021.
