2021 seems to be the year of exciting video game sequels, New Pokemon Snap, Halo: Infinite, and Dying Light 2 are set to release or have already released this year. And that’s not all, as another long-standing franchise is set to release their next installment.

Ubisoft’s Far Cry 6 is coming out this year, and it’s shaping up to be one of the biggest releases of 2021. Here are the details on the Far Cry 6 release date, its gameplay, and story. 

Far Cry 6 Story 

Like the rest of the main Far Cry games, Far Cry 6 has a standalone story that has no ties to the previous games. The previous stories have taken place in fictional countries, islands, or fictional counties. Although Far Cry 6 also takes place in a fictional country, it is heavily inspired by Cuba.

Set in the fictional island, Yara, players will control Yaran rebel, Dani Rojas, as they try to dethrone the island’s dictator, Anton Castillo. Players will get to choose what gender Rojas is, and it won’t affect the experience of the game. Meanwhile, Castillo is trying to prep his son, Diego, to follow in his steps and become the ruler of Yara. 

In the Far Cry 6 reveal trailer, we get a sneak peek of the ways Castillo is preparing Diego to become the eventual dictator of Yara. One of these ways is by giving Diego a grenade, pulling the pin, and making him hold it so it won’t explode. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Diego has to walk to the roof of their house still holding the grenade as he looks down at the protestors down below. 

Anton Castillo will be portrayed by Giancarlo Esposito, and Diego will be portrayed by Anthony Gonzales. Esposito is known for several roles, he’s appeared in Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian. Gonzales is most known for playing the lead character in Pixar’s Coco. Both actors not only voiced their characters but provided the motion capture as well. 

Far Cry 6 Gameplay

The gameplay is very much the same as the previous Far Cry installments; it will be an open-world first-person shooter. In the official gameplay trailer, Ubisoft gives fans a taste of what’s to come.

Players can travel around using vehicles, or they can travel through Yara on a horse. They can also use a boat to travel around the island. Players will also have a wide range of weapons: handguns, rifles, and even a bow and arrow will be at your disposal. 

But sometimes you won’t have perfect weapons to use, so you’ll have to use whatever you can to your advantage. This means that players will be forced to use makeshift weapons as they fight for their cause. One of the most unique weapons showcased during the gameplay trailer was a gun that shot out CDs that were playing the “Macarena” song. 

You won’t have to overthrow Castillo all on your own, you’ll have help along the way. Fellow rebels can guide and aid you, and not all rebels are human. Chorizo, the wiener dog, and Guapo, the crocodile will be there to assist you as well. 

Being a part of a revolution and trying to overthrow a dictator takes calculation and strategy, so, it will be up to the player to decide how to tackle problems. In the gameplay trailer, they point out that players can take the risky approach and walk around Yara’s cities and go guns blazing, or they can play it safe, bribe soldiers, and sneak around. 

Far Cry 6 Themes

With the game’s main plot being around rebellion and trying to overthrow a dictator, it’s pretty clear the game will have political themes. But Far Cry and Ubisoft want to make it known that they aren’t making a statement on Cuba exactly, but rebellion in general. 

In a statement put out by Navid Khavari, narrative director of Far Cry 6, he writes,” Our story is political. A story about a modern revolution must be.” He goes on to say that the game will have topics that include forced labor and LGBTQ+ rights, and he continues,

“What players will find is a story that’s point-of-view attempts to capture the political complexity of a modern, present-day revolution within a fictional context.”

Far Cry 6 Release Date: October 7, 2021 

Like many other games (and life in general), Far Cry 6 was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was originally meant to release in February 2021, but Ubisoft decided to change the release date by a few months. The new Far Cry 6 release date is October 7, 2021, and that date can’t come soon enough.

Bullet-hell Shooter Demon Throttle Announced By Devolver Digital

Published

on

demon throttle switch box

It’s just the first day of E3 2021, and announcements have been flooding in rapidly. Following the Guerilla Collective Showcase and Ubisoft’s Forward conference, Devolver Digital announced a bunch of new games during its Devolver Max Pass Plus event- that’s certainly a mouthful. One such game is Dionksoft’s upcoming Demon Throttle.

Demon Throttle is a bullet-hell shooter with stylized 8-bit graphics. The trailer, which you can check out below, shows some incredibly stylish cinematics, reminiscent of Hideo Kojima’s Policenauts. The game’s story revolves around a vampiress and a gunslinger on a revenge mission against a demon.

Demon Throttle will be a physical-only game, releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch in 2022. Pre-orders are live on Special Reserve Games’ website. With the games industry steadily moving into an all-digital era, Doinksoft and Devolver Digital’s decision to go the physical-only route is certainly questionable, particularly in light of scalpers selling consoles and physical games at extraneous prices.

Devolver Tumble Time Is A Free-to-Play Mobile Game Coming Later This Year

Published

on

Devolver Digital has finally pulled the curtain for many of its upcoming titles during its Devolver Max Pass Plus event. The event itself was a parody of microtransaction-laden game releases as well as the increasingly popular subscription services and live-service models, but developer Npopo has plans of entering the mobile space through its upcoming game called Devolver Tumble Time.

The hilariously self-aware trailer for Devolver Tumble Time showcases some of Devolver Digital’s most popular mascots, such as Shadow Warrior‘s Lo Wang and Serious Sam in a “physics-based puzzle” game. While the gameplay looks quite simple, the character designs are incredibly adorable. The game will be coming to mobile platforms later this year, and pre-registrations for the game are now live.

The Tumble Time trailer is an accurate representation of everything predatory about free-to-play experiences. Devolver Digital seems to embrace the fact, with the game’s website making fun of itself with trash can loot boxes. Check out the full trailer below.

Inscryption is a Twisted New Horror Deck-Builder, Launching Later This Year

Published

on

Inscryption

Devolver Digital have announced Inscryption during their E3 2021 stream. It’s the next game from Daniel Mullins, developer of acclaimed indie hits Pony Island and The Hex.

Inscryption is a blend of several genres, in true Mullins fashion. It will combine elements of the roguelike deck-building genre with with puzzles styled like escape room challenges, with a healthy dash of psychological horror thrown in there. Players will “acquire a deck of woodland creature cards by draft, surgery, and self mutilation,” which sounds all kinds of twisted (and more than a little intriguing). Check out its announcement trailer below.

Inscryption will launch some time later this year for PC. An exact release date hasn’t yet been announced, and there’s no word yet on whether it will also launch for other platforms.

During their E3 2021 stream, Devolver Digital announced several new games, including Trek to Yomi and Wizard with a Gunwhile also providing updates on previously announced upcoming releases like Shadow Warrior 3, Phantom Abyssand Death’s Door. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more E3 coverage.
