Watch the Far Cry 6 gameplay premiere livestream here

Check out the Far Cry 6 gameplay livestream for a first look at the next main title in the series.

28

The next entry in the Far Cry series is almost upon us, but before then, there’s a Far Cry 6 gameplay premiere livestream scheduled. This livestream is expected to shed some more light on the fictional island of Yara where players will be spending their time shooting baddies and liberating the citizens. You can check out the Far Cry 6 livestream below!

Far Cry 6 gameplay premiere livestream

The Far Cry 6 gameplay premiere will begin on Friday, May 28, at 9:30 a.m. PT/12:30 p.m. ET. While there is currently no known length on the livestream, there’s a good chance it’ll fall somewhere between the 20 minutes to an hour mark. This is usually enough time to give players a taste of what’s on offer without giving too much away.

If you don’t want to head over to the Ubisoft North American YouTube channel to watch the livestream, you can view it in the embedded video above. We’ll also have plenty of coverage for you to feast your eyes on during and after the livestream.

Far Cry 6 was scheduled to come out sometime in 2021, but recently it was delayed as far out as early 2022. However, an accidental posting on the Xbox Store suggested it might be here as early as May 2021 – which is likely not the case.

Not a whole lot is known about Far Cry 6, other than it takes place on a fictional island called Yara, which was inspired by Cuba. It also features renowned actor Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad fame. This gameplay premiere livestream is bound to shed a lot of light on what new and exciting features players can expect from this mainline entry in the series.

          I'm sure they showed you have an option of what gender you can choose. Obviously the one shown through out is probably the one they focused on.

          Just hoping it doesn't lead to an AC:Odyssey, where the one choice isn't that great compared to the other.

          Ubi is king of that. Whether it's the Far Cry games set here or Watchdogs, they have plenty of big budget games that seem like they're set up specifically to comment on the real world, and then they just kinda don't.

            May 28, 2021 12:09 PM

            The GTA games are kinda like this too. It's like an upper middle class white freshman's understanding of culture and politics.

            Watch Dogs, particularly 1 and 2, do comment pretty effectively on the real world IMO. In that sense I think they may actually be better cyberpunk games than Cyberpunk.

            Which makes Far Cry's failure to do so more baffling.

              How they neutered Legion, though, was ridiculous. I think a bunch of their games were greenlit with a political point of view within them, that got blanket-halted from the top and tossed out the door before they went public with their new business model.

              It really is amazing to me how few years it took for what used to be the most innovative of the big western 3rd party publishers to anal prolapse themselves into complete irrelevance.

          Its going to be sick when they make Far Cry with the Capitol Insurrection in ten years and they're like "oh yeah we're not making a political statement, also the guns feel pretty nice you should try them out"

      I've only played 5 + it's direct sequel. I like the gameplay, but hated just about all of the villains / npcs

      I spent 90% of my time with whatever animal companion I could get while I murdered the map with my bow.
