You are an indigenous person
I wanted to be the white god liberator :(
Doesn't seem to be co-op
There's not a single interesting thing in the game's description, and the setting is a letdown compared to basically all the previous mainline games
I don't know why the characters in these games cannot be player-created. It's not like there's any dialogue to them.

CULT|Hanged Man
But at least you get to kill a child

CULT|icycalm
There's that

I saw the Chinese subheading and thought the game was set in China for a second. That’d be cool.

CULT|icycalm
That'd be very cool
If you want me to be indigenous, at least make a story and setting as cool as Apocalypto
This Land Is My Land is cool too
As a setting, I don't know about the game, I think it's so-so from what I've read
In this game, I am even FANTASY indigenous
A "Yaran" or whatever
Jeez

CULT|jeffrobot494
It’s too bad Westerners are so obsessed with being rebels all the time.
The evil government in this game sounds cooler.
One of the coolest parts of XCOM: EU for me was being the tip of the spear of a united global force.

"It’s too bad Westerners are so obsessed with being rebels all the time."
It's a side-effect of being so independent-minded
It's really not about being Western. It's about being white
Though it rubs off on all other Western races
I wonder if say Romans had this trait too
Did they think of themselves as an evil empire lol?

CULT|jeffrobot494
I don’t think rebels were cool in America until the Vietnam War and that anti-war movement. That’s when we really started hating our government.

He plays the exact same character as in Breaking Bad

Finally a bit of info that seems cool and edgy, if true. Sharp eye too, whoever caught it.

Release is apparently February 18, 2021. I will play this day 1. I've never played a Far Cry day 1, but I will play this. Here is my history with the series:

Far Cry 1: almost finished it
Far Cry 2: played about 10-15%
Far Cry 5: played exactly 33% in co-op

My ratings:

Far Cry 1: videogame art/5
Far Cry 2: videogame art/5
Far Cry 5: 4/5

I will at least make sure to have finished all three of the above before playing 6. I will try to finish at least a couple more too.

I am conflicted about whether I want 6 to be SP or co-op. I can't wait for the trailer on Sunday.

Here's another tidbit that's encouraging:

Image

It seems a considerable portion of the game takes place in a city. That's never happened before in the series as far as I know. Even the tiny towns in 5 felt like ghost towns. Are they gonna do a proper city with life in 6? It's a third-world shithole though so maybe they think they can get away with a semi-deserted dump.

There's a theory that the boy is little Vaas...

Is Far Cry 6 a prequel to Far Cry 3?
https://www.polygon.com/2020/7/10/21319 ... o-esposito

Russ Frushtick wrote:The last potential piece of evidence for now is that Esposito and the actor who originally played Vaas, Michael Mando, are currently on the same show together, Better Call Saul. Actors work together all the time, of course, and it’s not like Ubisoft needed Mando to shine a light on the talent of Esposito for them. But hey, worth mentioning.

Speaking of Mando, the actor participated in a Reddit AMA two months ago and the topic of Vaas actually came up. Here’s what he had to say:

“Vaas is my spirit animal - having co-created that character is something that will always be dear to me. I still get recognized as Vaas, and I still feel the outpouring of love for that character - makes me very happy. Who knows... maybe I will reprise the role very soon? :p Thank you for watching xo”

Certainly a wink and nudge there, if ever there was one.

lol I just noticed this in the PSN page linked above: "Online multiplayer (2 players)".

It's gotta be co-op. What else could it be?

I just came here to post that that title sequence is the most incredible thing I've seen in years. An orgy of colors and mesmerizing scenes. I think it takes inspiration from the first couple of True Detective title scenes, but blows them out of the water.

This btw was the first live news event I've ever watched. And I saw it in its entirety. I just kicked back in my couch and watched the entire thing, including the post-event Valhalla footage. I had lots of fun with it, although I was miffed by something that I posted about on Twitter just now: https://twitter.com/culturevg/status/12 ... 1893651456

Insomnia | Videogame Culture @culturevg wrote:Ubievent: PR staff and game characters: notwhite. Creators: white. This is the new normal. Read "Racist Art Theory": https://www.patreon.com/posts/37936734


Anyway, that was a bit off-topic. Back to FC6. No play footage shown was a letdown but they are saying they'll hold another even later in the year so I guess they are drip-feeding us info on this. Can't blame them considering how much stuff they showed from the other games that are releasing sooner (and both Legion and Valhalla look cool af; I'll post about them in their respective threads later).

The 4K assets look unreal. More effort seems to have gone into a single 3D model than in an entire "indie" game.

Gameplay Deep Dive Trailer - Rules of the Guerrilla

So much color and detail and action... I've never seen such a dense, rich trailer. That said, it's not Ultimate Trailer Ranking material because it's not artistically significant as trailer. It's just a good demonstration of a richly detailed game.

Also,

Far Cry 6 Will Be Fully Playable In Co-Op
https://screenrant.com/far-cry-6-fully-playable-co-op/

Release is October 7. Plenty of time for recoil and me to finish 5 and play this day 1. We are 2/3rds of the way through 5 I think. I have to say we've been dragging our feet because it's not exactly the best Far Cry ever... I hope 6 will be better. Tbh if they just fix the stupid non-stop encounters of 5—on Hard at least—and give us some space to breathe and enjoy the world, that will be enough.

I added the trailer to the trailer reel. This is the first game after Star Citizen that gets more than one trailer on the frontpage (SC has four lol). The title sequence is just too good to remove.
