You May of Heard, Far Cry New Dawn was Announced
Well, well, well, even with a leak on the same day it was to be announced, Far Cry developer Ubisoft kept quiet until the reveal trailer was unveiled for their next chapter in the long running franchise. Far Cry New Dawn will release on February 15, 2019 for various platforms, including the Xbox One. And another surprise, you can pre-order it for $39.99.
So, what is this next game about? Well, 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.
Who are these new protagonists? Well, they were raised in a lawless frontier, and these 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.
Some of us are still on the fence about this game, but we have to say, it sure looks pretty.
