Fend Off Highwaymen in Far Cry New Dawn’s Lush World

08 December 2018

After yesterday's tantalising tease, Ubisoft took to the stage at this year's Game Awards to fully reveal its mysterious new title - Far Cry New Dawn. Apparently, it's coming out February 15th.

Far Cry New Dawn looks pretty Mad Max-like (albeit in a lusher environment) and, in picking up Far Cry 5's story 17 years later, constitutes a spin-off iteration of the franchise along similar lines to Far Cry: Primal. Except this one's gonna be all future-y.

Exactly what's going on in terms of the main antagonists isn't entirely clear but they seem to be the two women on the box art above (Far Cry always features the main enemy, rather than the protagonist).

But Bethesda's other post-apocalyptic open world game has a considerably less serious and more anarchic tone, so maybe all three can happily coexist... If you take the second option, prepare for the bandits to set up shop again, but this time with better defences. True to Far Cry form, Mickey and Lou will grace New Dawn's cover upon release, though they are far from the only new faces.

Prosperity is also where you can treat wounded Far Cry: New Dawn Specialists. However, we've left her on the bench for now, instead opting for Nana. There is also Nana, an elderly lady who is a stealthy sniper, described as a sharp shooter with a sharp tongue. We know this for a fact: we witnessed her sneak up on a Highwayman and deck him from behind.

Ubisoft released a new teaser trailer on Wednesday for an unannounced "Far Cry" project. Whether we will see more animal companions joining us hasn't been confirmed yet. You'll be pleased to hear the Fangs for Hire will return as well. First, there's the Escalation system, which adds a juicy new dimension to one of the game's strongest activities - securing outposts. And the world is in a place actually where he wanted it to be, so he's a changed man.
