    Is the big end game twist going to be that the player becomes the next vicious dictator who rules the country with an iron first or they don't and their side-kick/mission giver becomes the next dictator, or the country descends into total anarchy and the U.S. takes over, or it gets nuked, or they just end by telling the player they should have stayed in bed or some other dark and grim ending like they pretty much all seem to have.

    Those eyebrows though. Only people who live under harsh dictatorships have eyebrows like that.

    Maybe the game will start with your alarm clock going off, and if you wait in your bedroom for 10 mins you get the alternative ending where the character sleeps in and everything goes better than if you'd gotten involved.

    Every FC game seems to have an "alternative" ending like that these days.

    Good news I guess, these games are plenty of fun and you know exactly what to expect.

    Love how your name is "Dani" - presumably so you can pick a male or female character, but the voice actors only have to record one set of lines. Smooth lateral thinking, Ubisoft.

    The FC formula was already milked dry in FC3. While FC4 refined it a bit, it was already creatively bankrupt.

    Vaas is apparently coming back so it'll be a nice little Better Call Saul reunion. Appreciated considering that shit ain't coming back anytime soon.

    True that it hasn't really changed since FC3, but it's a good formula you can spin endless games out of:

    - The protagonist becomes trapped somewhere, hunted by a murderous enemy force. The only way to survive/escape is to fight
    - The majority of the game is free-roaming and clearing outposts while upgrading yourself and your gear
    - The outpost-clearing is sometimes broken up by the plot, which takes the form of heavily scripted action sequences where you escape capture, have a gay helicopter chase, run away from explosions etc
    - "Spiritual" levels that literally nobody enjoys, where you trip out on drugs or contact your spirit guide or some other stupid shit
    - The game finally ends with a really dumb Epic Choice Moment to tie everything together

    As long as the maps are suitably distinct from each other and the outposts are tightly designed with multiple approaches in mind, they can definitely milk it for at least one more game.

    The later Far Cry games are all good, until they're suddenly not. Which for me is always about 10 hours in. After that the repetition kicks in and the feeling to start the game up just vanishes. I've had exactly the same experience with Fc2, FC3, Primal and FC5. From 'Omg this is actually a lot better than I thought' to, 'it's good and I'm still enjoying it, although I can feel it's getting a bit repetitive', and finally 'I can't stand doing this anymore, uninstall'. The mystery is why I've bought bloody 4 of them. I'm blaming Gaben and the damn Steam sales.

    Seems too similar to Far Cry 4. That one was about an evil dictator and civil war, too.

    If you played till the end, you would've discovered that the rebellion was the baddies, while the dictator is keeping it all from going to shit.

    At least that's what my wife tells me. I couldn't stomach that game.

    No way they'll say commies are misunderstood in 6. They will be the biggest baddies of all.

    Far Cry primal was a total piece of shit until they released the survivor mode and then it suddenly became interesting and worth playing. Which just goes to show, ubishit is capable of making these games good, they just dont because retards eat up slop like pigs at a trough and beg for more.

    I like Giancarlo Esposito, but my interest in this franchise is zero.

    Far Cry 5 had one of my most favorite AAA game soundtracks in recent years. Hope this one delivers on that aspect

    This just makes no sense his name is Vaas Montenegro and he was a member of the Rakyat warrior tribe in southeast Asia and now he is Diego a son of a dictator in a Latin American county. This either Ubisoft's lazy character design or the most stupid retcon I have seen in years.

    Also here is the full leak
    [​IMG]

    No mentions of New Dawns "RPG" elements so hopefully, no levelled weapons or enemies.
    Also if this really is based on Cuba you might get to kill commies
