After their presentation Ubisoft has officially teased their new franchise called Far Cry: New Dawn. The new project will be the sequel of their previous hit game Far Cry 5, which takes place exactly 5 years later to a post apocalyptic world full of surprises.
As we observe the trailer, the previous world has changed a lot after the prequel of New Dawn, with improvised weapons, colourful places, massive map to eplore and scavenged gear, which brings to mind games like the upcoming Rage 2.
The cover of the game is pretty much the same with Far Cry 5 one featuring the hanged Joseph Seed at the background and the current villains, which are The Twins, leaders of a band of highwaymen who don’t seem too pleased with him.
Although the game is currently Alpha, it actually appears very smooth and graphically amazing with the new colours and the variety of creativity the company has put in the game.
Ubisoft has made it clear, they will be releasing their new game on 15,February,2019 for $39.99 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, which is a very early date to be playing it thinking we didn’t have enough time to know the game more since the first announce yesterday on GameAwards2018.
Game Info from Ubisoft:
Set seventeen years after a global nuclear catastrophe, Far Cry New Dawn brings players into a wildly beautiful and radically transformed Hope County, Montana. 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.
Raised in a lawless frontier, the twin sisters and their band of scavengers live only for today and have descended upon Hope County to take all available resources. To push back this devastating threat, players must help the Survivors grow stronger, craft a makeshift arsenal and form unexpected alliances to fight for survival in a dangerous new frontier.At the Homebase, players will prepare to face off against the threat of the Highwaymen. The Homebase, called Prosperity, is the stronghold of the Survivors. Here, players can craft makeshift weapons and vehicles and train their Guns for Hire – including new and familiar faces.
As players progress, they can upgrade the Homebase for more powerful weapons and gear. The Homebase is also a launchpad to Expeditions, where for the first time in Far Cry, the adventure is more than local. Set in memorable locations across the US, from wetlands to canyons and more, Expeditions drop players into unique locations where they must grab a package of valuable materials and get out, quickly.Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with support from Ubisoft Shanghai, Ubisoft Kiev and Ubisoft Bucharest, Far Cry New Dawn is a first-person shooter set in a completely open world.
The standalone sequel to Far Cry® 5, Far Cry New Dawn thrusts players into a brilliant post-apocalyptic setting where they will encounter a dual threat – The Twins, Mickey and Lou. Players can recruit an eclectic cast of Guns and Fangs for Hire, or a Friend for Hire for co-op play, to experience unpredictable, unforgettable Far Cry Moments where anything can happen.
