Ubisoft looks like they’re teasing a new Far Cry game that will make its worldwide debut during The Game Awards tomorrow night. The publisher dropped a teaser trailer that signals the unannounced project could be closely connected to Far Cry 5, showing the title’s setting being destroyed via a nuclear bomb.
During the new Far Cry game trailer, we see Far Cry 5’s Hope County being destroyed via a nuclear bomb. During it, the trailer’s narrator sets the scene:
“None of us were ready for the end. The flames devoured everything. And when death rolled through our valley, our world turned cold and dark. The years of rain, the howling winds gave way to blue skies. And a new world in bloom. We felt hope. We were wrong.”
Folks here at Nerd Much? believe that the new Far Cry game will be a evolution of the Far Cry 5 map. The 5th mainline game in the series only just released in late March. A nuclear fallout could be an easy excuse to make cosmetic changes to the Hope County map introduced in Far Cry 5 and repackage it.
The only real question is whether this new Far Cry game is a fleshed out spin-off title such as Far Cry Primal. Or the upcoming content could be a new DLC pack to be sold to owners of Far Cry 5.
We can all speculate for about another day before we officially know what this new Far Cry game is. Ubisoft will pull the curtain back tomorrow night at The Game Awards and show us what they have in-store for us. You can catch the show live on various streaming services including YouTube, Twitter, Facebook Live, Twitch and via your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 console itself. The events kick off at 8:30 p.m. Eastern, 5:30 p.m. Pacific.
