Overnight Ubisoft has revealed a number of updates around Far Cry 6, including a whole new expansion, Lost Between Worlds, which is coming December 6. The gaming giant also announced that available from now, a free trial to play Far Cry 6 on all available platforms was in effect and that anyone upgrading from trial to retail would not lose any progress made via the taste tester.
Title Update 6 is now available, and players can return to Yara and relive their favourite missions stronger than ever with the highly-anticipated addition of New Game+ mode, allowing them to bring their endgame gear and weapons back to the start of their next playthrough. Title Update 6 also introduces a Completionist Aid feature, providing players with guided assistance in uncovering all of Yara’s hidden secrets.
And as far as the new expansion is concerned, think Blood Dragon or Lost on Dawn from previous Far Cry entries and you get a sense for what to expect, but here's a handy trailer:
In Far Cry 6: Lost Between Worlds, players will begin a thrilling new chapter of Dani Rojas’ story, set in a fractured version of Yara. Following their exploration of a mysterious meteorite impact site, Dani will discover themselves in a twisted space between worlds accompanied by a noncorporeal lifeform named Fai. Players will need to repair Fai’s broken spacecraft by collecting five lost shards, each increasing Dani’s overall stats for survivability, bringing them one step closer to escape.
To recover the missing shards, players will need to rely on their guerrilla skills to navigate through 15 challenging and intense trials called Rifts, where they must defeat Shardfaces, humanoid and animal crystalline enemies, lurking around every corner. In each distinctive Rift, such as a shattered fortress suspended in the sky and an underwater Esperanza full of deadly traps, players will encounter different dangers and otherworldly obstacles. Players can choose how they approach each Rift and will uncover powerful weapons and tools along the way, and collect energy fragments scattered throughout the area, allowing them to revive and retry a Rift, if necessary. With multiple branching paths, platforming exploration, and intense moment-to-moment action, the roguelite-inspired gameplay will have players’ runs feeling unique each time as they master this twisted world. Upon mission completion, players will receive Fai’s powerful gear and will be able to take it back to Yara for an ethereal edge in the ongoing fight against the regime.
Lost Between Worlds is out December 6 for the standalone price of $29.95 AUD or as part of the Upgrade Pass and Ubisoft+ for PC.
