Is that Giancarlo Espisito?

Loved FC4. Really liked FC5, but it was a step down. The varied locales sounds like change of pace.

Please have the gyro-copter! I always love the FC games and Ubi has been killing it in quality lately. I hope to see more at the Ubi event (and hopefully some Splinter Cell).

As long as I can ride an Elephant tossing enemies all over and stomping on vehicles and I can fire Rockets...I'm all in....

I would like to have more of Giancarlo than we had of the main bad guy in FC4 who almost felt like an afterthought.

But I would be okay with less of him than we had of Joseph Seed in FC5.

re: Far Cry 6 (10/7/21)

My daughter found an article Online speculating that this is a prequel to
Spoiler:

FC3 and that Diego is young Vaas. They have matching scars above their right eyebrows. Also I never realized Vaas was voiced by Michael Mando who plays Nacho in Better Call Saul (though knowing that now itís obvious- it looks just like him with a Mohawk), which of course would make this a BCS reunion.


Spoilerized just in case this is supposed to be a secret.

Looks like we're finally getting a Far Cry that's (mostly) in an urban city?

Far Cry 5 was my favorite - very well done characters, humor, and a great looking game.

I really ended up enjoying New Dawn. I think it was actually my most-played game of 2019.

A massive improvement over 5, for my money. And itís funny because I grudgingly settled for New Dawn even though the trailers made it look frustratingly similar yet second-rate next to the as-yet-unreleased Rage 2. But as it turned out, I didnít really like Rage 2 much at all, and New Dawn was one of my favorite games of the year.

Actually forgot about New Dawn...It probably surpasses 5 as the better game, It's awesome but you can't have new dawn without 5 and vice versa.

Sadly never finished 5 which I thought was great and fun with all your "Friends"...and it's a typical Far Cry Game with anything can happen...like catching a Bear on Fire and then throwing meat in the middle of a bunch of enemies....I wanted Dawn but it would give away what happened with 5 which I didn't want....not far off finishing 5 which I need to. I think Far Cry 6 might have a more serious overtone though....

If you can, keep going - Many would disagree but New Dawn offers an entire new Far Cry experience. Also pay close attention to one of "Silent" companion you get then figure out who it is by doing a search.

I never finished New Dawn. I finished FC 5 but still have the DLC to play.

FC5's DLC were an utter waste of time. They should've scrapped all of them and instead had New Dawn as it's DLC.

I've played them all (even the two separate versions of FC1), and they've all been good (though maybe overall, more difficult than they should be), and my favorite has been FC4, with my favorite DLC/side-game being Blood Dragon!

I've really loved everything this series has done since 3. I'm in. Pre-orders are currently at $49.99 on Amazon too.

Did you guys like the caveman one? Because even though I played it to completion, I thought that one kind of sucked.

Good tip--thanks, just preordered.

And yes, I actually did like Primal as well. Though the gameplay maybe wasn't the best, I thought it was an original concept and still felt (mostly) like Far Cry.
