KEY POINTS

  • "Far Cry 6" will reportedly feature a new kind of endgame for players to progress through
  • This might be a continuation of the Yaran Revolution after the main storyline ends
  • More official information regarding the game is expected to be revealed at E3 2021

The “Far Cry” games are known for being story-driven, non-linear open-world games about seemingly ordinary people caught in a large yet contained conflict. “Far Cry 6” will reportedly be shaking this formula up by adding something different to its endgame that players can progress through once the main story is completed.

The sixth mainline entry to the “Far Cry” series is already setting itself apart from the previous games by focusing on a nationwide political crisis. Now, developers have hinted that the game will go beyond just the main story and actually give players something to fight for once they reach the end of the campaign.

“Far Cry 6” lead designer David Grivel told YouTuber JorRaptor that there will be “something else” for players to do once the story ends. However, he did not elaborate on this and only said that more information will be revealed during the Ubisoft Forward event at E3 2021.

The “endgame” content for the previous “Far Cry” games mainly involved finishing up collections, hunting for achievements and completing the rest of the map’s activities. Grivel’s statement may imply that there will be a larger conflict that needs to get resolved other than just overthrowing the main antagonist.

It’s likely that players will have to continue the revolution in Yara even after the credits roll. After all, the main conflict in “Far Cry 6” does involve two large factions with the main opposing force being the country’s entire government. It’s possible that the endgame will have players fighting for territory or wiping out the remaining loyalist camps and strongholds.

In the interview with JorRaptor, Grivel said that the world of “Far Cry 6” will not be devoid of enemies unlike “Far Cry 5.” The absence of enemies in the previous game was a major disappointment to players, and the developers are now trying to avoid making this same mistake.

Grivel also noted that the ability to reset conquered outposts will still be in the game, but it will only become available after a certain point. He did not mention what this “certain point” might be, but it’s safe to assume that it’s directly related to the story, whether it be the actual story completion or some other significant in-game event.

Grivel did not confirm or deny any fan speculations about the game, so it’s best to take anything related to “Far Cry 6’s” gameplay with a grain of salt. More news about the game will be revealed by Ubisoft in the coming weeks.
