Far Cry 6 Will Have A Greater Focus On Exploration | Screen Rant

A new interview for Far Cry 6 has revealed that there will be an even greater focus on exploration than in previous entries in the open-world FPS franchise. Far Cry 6 is set on the fictional Caribbean destination of Yara, where players will take control of guerrilla Dani Rojas on their journey topple the dictatorship of ruthless Far Cry 6 villain Antón Castillo.

Far Cry 6 has already given away a lot of information on the lead-up to its October launch. Most notably, there was some confusion over the game’s political intent, with Ubisoft seeming to dither over whether or not the game was trying to make any points about real-world places and conflicts. Since establishing that the game will not make any political statements about Cuba, specifically, the developer has been sharing more about Far Cry 6's beautiful but deeply troubled island location.

It's well-known at this point that Far Cry 6's map will be vast, but in a recent interview with Gamereactor, Far Cry 6 World Director Ben Hall shared even more insight into the nature of exploration in Yara and its gameplay importance. When researching real-world guerrilla warfare, Hall says that Ubisoft discovered that “guerillas need to take things that they've got around them and utilize them to the best of their advantage.” This is something that will be implemented and captured in Far Cry 6's moment-to-moment gameplay. Hall said players will be able to “explore the open world and find interesting things, find information and really scout the world out for themselves as they're exploring," suggesting that resource management will play a more vital role to success than previous Far Cry titles.

This does not come as too much of a surprise. After all, in one of the recent gameplay trailers for Far Cry 6, a closer look was given at some of the game's weapons. While the standard fare of Molotov cocktails and grenade launchers were shown off, so too were some of the more eclectic additions to Dani's arsenal. This included Far Cry 6’s jetpacks and a gun that fires CDs while it plays "Macarena." These items are clearly made from bits and pieces that were found scattered around the game’s tropical islands, likely by Juan Cortez - Far Cry 6’s jaded ex-KGB spy and guerrilla master.

Yara clearly holds a lot of secrets and discovery opportunities, but it's a wonder how dense and immersive those might be. Past Far Cry games have included crafting and a need to collect (and purchase) ammo and other items from around the world, so Ubisoft's suggestion that exploration will have even more gameplay significance in Far Cry 6 could be just what survival-minded fans have been waiting for.
