A new story trailer for upcoming video game Far Cry 6 was recently revealed at Gamescom 2021.
The Far Cry 6 story trailer focuses on two sides of the story: the big baddie and grand dictator Anton Castillo and the unwilling hero Dani Rojas. There is actually a news crew that interviews both parties and sheds a light on their lives.
The first one to be interviewed is Anton Castillo who talks about what happened in Yara during the game. His grand plan is to create Viviro, a cancer treatment that comes from tobacco plants. He is also determined to establish a paradise of Yara and he is not concerned of what it will cost to him and his country.
Castillo was discovered to be a slave and had to endure hard labor for 15 years. He was imprisoned at age 13, which is just the same as his son, Diego Castillo. His son will be an important character in this game, but Anton is trying his best to turn him into another dictator, just like himself.
The other side that got interviewed was Rojas who has now become part of the revolution on Yara. Of course, he/she did not have a choice in the matter. It was when he/she witnessed the massacre of many refugees inside a ship that pushed him/her to become what he/she is now.
The trailer shows how players will be going through different parts of the map in order to liberate them from Castillo’s rule like checkpoint raids. There is also a scene where there is a helicopter battle, explosions, and more.
Far Cry 6 launches on October 7, 2021 for PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
