As for the game itself, Far Cry 6 is a first-person shooter game that blends action and adventure with cutting-edge graphics. Players will assume the role of a local Yaran named Dani Rojas to prevail over guerillas dragging the county into civil War. The main aim of the protagonist is to save his people from an oppressive dictatorial regime no matter what it takes. Alongside a wide array of weapons, numerous vehicles and backpacks make the combat more entertaining. Additionally, players can follow up the story with their friends, as Far Cry 6 has a co-op mode with support for up to two players.
This is not the first time Far Cry 6 will be free-to-play for a limited time since its launch in September 2021.
