New Far Cry Game's Name, Box Art Seemingly Leak

'Far Cry New Dawn' turns Hope County into a nuclear wasteland next year

'Far Cry New Dawn' turns Hope County into a nuclear wasteland next year

Just two days ago, we covered a tease from Ubisoft about a new spin-off sequel to Far Cry 5.

17 years after the events of Far Cry 5 comes Far Cry: New Dawn in all its post-apocalyptic glory. Far Cry: New Dawn will release on February 15, 2019.

The video is worth a watch if you're unsure about New Dawn.

Unfortunately, it appears that Capcom has signed an exclusive deal with Microsoft and the first demo of it will be made available exclusively on Xbox One tomorrow.

You know what scarier than a religious madman who kidnaps people in an attempt to grant them salvation from a nuclear apocalypse that he believes is coming? There's a greater emphasis on crafting, as you can create weapons and vehicles. He adds that "Far Cry is an opportunity to get into an open-world shooter that's very easy to pick up, super fun. and it's all about these lawless frontiers, these places that are pretty remote where you're going to meet peculiar characters". The Saw Launcher, for example, hurls singular circular saws to start out with, but eventually three can fire at once. At Prosperity, players can travel to locations across the United States ("from wetlands to canyons and more", according to Ubisoft), where they'll have to secure a package of valuable materials and get out as quickly as possible. It will be interesting to see how the game plays, and how closely its map borrows from Far Cry 5's. Who is Nana? She's a sharp-shooting sniper granny, and she's got your back. Plus there's also a dog that'll ride in the auto with you. There's Horatio a giant hog.

Hope Country isn't a post-apocalyptic wasteland like the Fallout games: America has only recently emerged from the grasp of a nuclear winter, and Hope County has been fortunate to benefit from the vagaries of a resurgent mother nature. Based on the freaky - but very real - phenomenon of "super bloom". Fans of the relatively serious tone of Far Cry 2 will be disappointed to instead find gross-out jokes inherited from Far Cry 5: a side mission sees a mutton-chopped Highwayman thug recruiting you for a gladiatorial arena fight and bragging about a recent scrap in which he'd "punched [a guy] so hard he farted his brains out". As resources are harvested, the home base facilities improve, with upgrades to the Training Camp, Garage, Healing Garden, and Cartographer among others. Life has begun to emerge from the chaos, but the survivors now face a new threat - the merciless Highwaymen and their leaders The Twins, Mickey and Lou.
