Far Cry 6 is the latest release in Ubisoft’s tentpole franchise and is considered one of the best ones in the series. The game features one of the most popular actors of our time as Giancarlo Esposito takes on the role of a tyrannical dictator, Anton Castillo, and delivers one of the most iconic villain performances in a series that is founded on iconic villains.

Players take on the role of Dani Rojas, a rebel who must now lead a resistance against Anton Castillo and wage a guerilla war against his rule. The game builds on the foundations of the series by adding several chaotic elements into the mix through modified weapons, cars, and explosives.

Far Cry 6 is a rather fun affair and a good outing for the franchise although it runs into the same problems as previous games in the serious as the fun gradually devolves into tedium. The game is a decent 6/10 title and players can try it out for themselves this weekend and make up their minds whether it warrants a purchase.

The game is currently discounted on the Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Store, PlayStation Store, and Microsoft/Xbox Store.
