Ubisoft wants to pay the big bad bossmen from the Far Cry franchise some tribute with the Season Pass planned for Far Cry 6 post-launch DLC. Become the Villain, shown at Ubisoft Forward E3 2021, features dream sequences where the player takes control of some of the meanest and most memorable villains from Far Cry's past. Also included is the excellent vaporwave throwback stand-alone shooter, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon.

Far Cry 6 may be a few months away but Ubisoft is already spilling the details for the first Season Pass that's coming to the highly-anticipated open-world shooter. The first post-launch DLC plans were unveiled today at Ubisoft Forward E3 2021 via a Season Pass trailer. This post-release content will feature a chance for players to take the role of some of Far Cry's infamous main antagonists.

The planned first DLC to make its way into Far Cry 6's Season Pass is titled, Become the Villain, and will see a trio of returning baddies from the past. Vaas Montenegro from Far Cry 3, Pagan Min from Far Cry 4, and Joseph Seed of Far Cry 5 all make their return as playable characters in one of Far Cry's trademark dream sequences. The trailer opens with first-person re-introductions to Vaas and The Father before revealing all three villains with cuts of their respective gameplay.

The trailer warns ominously that 'the mind is a dangerous place' before concluding with some bonus news. Included in the Far Cry 6 Season Pass is the critically acclaimed stand-alone expansion Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon in all it's radical '80s glory. Far Cry 6 is set to release on Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, PC, PS4/PS5, and Xbox One/Series consoles.

      Far Cry 6's DLC will bring back Vaas (FC3), Pagan (FC4), and Joseph (FC5), per a leak, as part of a dream sequence

      This would tie in with prior statements Michael Mando made about reprising Vaas prior to FC6's announcemnt.

        They took the video down. Was it single player or some multiplayer mode?

        Am I the only one disappointed that The Jackal (FC2) is not included in the roster?

        One of the only things I really don't like about Far Cry is the fucking dream sequences, or the "i'm on drugs now" sections. Wish they'd get rid of them completely.

          It’s the equivalent of the animus in ass creed. Totally unnecessary and dumb.

          In theory I think they're cool, lots of sweet design and graphical effects happening. But they gotta turn them into gameplay sequences where you don't have all your abilities/gear and the level is some linear piece of crap. I can't imagine anyone who thinks those are good.

          Dream sequences have sucked since Max Payne 1.

          I loved the "wtf I'm so high" bit from FC3 where you're burning the pot fields.

          All the rest suck

        Wait, I thought we already played as Vaas in the new one. And then Vaas had a kid and he was also Vaas.

            That's not much of a spoiler, that’s three pieces of DLC featuring characters.

      HA! They've just caused me to wait to purchase until I can get the game and Season Pass on sale. Sucks to be them.

      Why does Ubi blow all of their loads all at once, months before their games are even out? You'd think by spacing out the announcements a little bit, they could keep the game in the news, and more easily maintain a steady buzz over many months. But I get the desire to sell as many $100 blind pre-orders as early as possible is just too strong.
