Ubisoft followed through on its promise to reveal details about Far Cry 6 yesterday, revealing the shooter sequel will be released on October 7th for PC and consoles. It looks like the Windows edition will be an Epic Games Store exclusive, as word is: it’s coming “on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Uplay, Uplay+, Epic Games and Stadia.” There’s new information about the game on the Far Cry Website, along with links to preorder the game which comes with a couple of preorder bonuses. There are three videos to illustrate the news, a Character Trailer to introduce Dani Rojas, a Antón & Diego Castillo – Lions of Yara Trailer to introduce “a new figurine directly inspired by the characters and story of FAR CRY® 6,” and the big payoff, a Rules of the Guerrilla Trailer offering a “deep dive” into gameplay. There’s also a post about all this on Xbox Wire. Here’s a bit from that:

As a local Yaran, Dani Rojas (playable as either a woman or man), players will utilize guerrilla tactics to dismantle Antón’s regime. Fortunately, you won’t have to fight alone, as you’ll be joined by charismatic rebels including Clara Garcia, the leader of the revolutionary group Libertad, and Juan Cortez, an ex-KGB spy and guerilla master. You’ll also be able to team up with all-new animal companions like Chorizo, the wiener dog, or Guapo, the ferocious crocodile.

Playable solo or in two-player co-op, Far Cry 6 features the series’ most varied open world yet, with dense urban environments coming to Far Cry for the first time. Players will be able to explore and traverse cities, towns, and the lush jungles of Yara in new ways including horses, tanks, and DIY vehicles. To take down Antón’s regime, players will have to embrace the “resolver” spirit and make use of whatever they can find and customize their arsenal to suit their needs. From a motorcycle-engine-powered minigun to a homing-missile backpack, there’s a resolver solution to any problem.
