Far Cry: New Dawn Announced by Ubisoft, Releasing February Next Year

Far Cry: New Dawn

Ubisoft has made a new announcement for the upcoming Far Cry: New Dawn for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. This will be the latest game in the series, which is a follow up after the Far Cry 5 that was released earlier this year. The announcement came via a trailer that was shown in The Game Awards, and is scheduled to launch on 15 February, 2019.

The story of Far Cry: New Dawn is set seventeen years after the events of Far Cry 5, where the world now is a global nuclear wasteland. After the nuclear catastrophe, a civilization has re- emerged to find chaos in the world that has dramatically changed. Take a look at the trailer released by Ubisoft:

The cover art was also released with the trailer which depicts a similar landscape to that of Far Cry 5, but with a man tied to a wrecked car that seems to be no other than Joseph Seed, the main antagonist and the cult leader of Hope County of Far Cry 5, while the new antagonists are the twin sisters as seen on the cover.

In this new wasteland that Hope County has become, the evil Highwaymen have taken over the world, and led by the twin sisters Mickey and Lou, travel from place to place bleeding people dry of all available resources. As the survivors try defend their lands against the Highwaymen’s relentless onslaught, it is up to the players to come to their aid and lead the fight.

Far Cry: New Dawn

In the latest installment of the award-winning Far Cry franchise, you are the last line of defense in a transformed, post-apocalyptic Hope County. Help the community of Survivors grow stronger, craft a makeshift arsenal through Turf Wars and cross-country Expeditions, and form unexpected alliances to fight for survival in a dangerous new frontier.

The game is a smaller stand-alone spin off similar to Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon that came out after Far Cry 3, and was set in a dystopian year of 2007, where the world was also suffering at he aftermath of a nuclear war.

Here are the key features of Far Cry 5: New Dawn:

  • Unforgettable Characters Collide with a Relentless Double Threat
    • Clash with the brutal Highwaymen and their unruly leaders Mickey and Lou. Known as The Twins, these sisters combine brains and brawn to give their army an iron grip on Hope County’s precious resources.
    • Recruit an eclectic cast of Guns and Fangs for Hire to fight by your side. These new allies, as well as some familiar faces, each bring unique and critical skills to the fray.
    • Find the former doomsday cult and seek out the charismatic leader who prophesized the collapse of civilization: Joseph Seed.
  • Grow the Survivors to Build Up Your Homebase
    • Specialists join the Survivors to help you craft weapons and vehicles, train your Guns for Hire, and even go on Expeditions from the eight Homebase facilities: the workbench, training camp, explosives lab, infirmary, garage, healing garden, cartography, and expeditions.
    • Grow your community and upgrade your Homebase to improve your facilities and unlock more powerful weapons and gear.
  • Battle for Resources in Hope County and Beyond
    • Engage the Highwaymen in Turf Wars by clearing their outposts and then scavenging them for Ethanol and other materials. When the Highwaymen return with stronger reinforcements, you can take on a greater challenge for even more of these valuable resources.
    • For the first time in Far Cry, the adventure is not just local. Venture outside of Hope County on thrilling Expeditions to unique and memorable locations across the USA including wetlands, canyons, and coastal regions.
    • Expeditions and Outposts are different every playthrough, for rewarding missions that increase in challenge and are surprising every time.

The game will be available for $39.99 and will come in two versions; the Standard and the Deluxe Edition. The Deluxe Edition will contain the following items:

  • Base Game
  • Hurk Legacy Pack
  • Knight Pack
  • “Blast-Off” Rat4 Skin
