The Far Cry franchise got a breath of new life when Far Cry 5 came to the world last year. Set in Montana, it featured a Marshal trying to take down the Eden’s Gate Cult by any means they saw fit. The game was filled with content, memorable characters, tons of weapons, and of course, great DLC. But the game ended in a cliffhanger of sorts, one that led to the upcoming beginning of Far Cry New Dawn.
Far Cry New Dawn takes place nearly two decades after Far Cry 5, and has you in a most post-apocalyptic setting, while still having you in Montana proper. And now, Ubisoft has revealed that the game has gone gold. Meaning that it’s done (for the most part) and read to be shipped to stores.
@FarCrygame New Dawn is Gold! Very proud of this game! Hope you enjoy playing it as much as we had fun making it!
Now, obviously, the game will likely have a “Day One Patch” to help work out some of lingering issues with the title, and that’s honestly standard in this day and age. But for the most part, the game is done, which is astounding as that makes it to where we have two Far Cry games in less than a year’s time. For those who don’t know what to expect from New Dawn, here’s the official synopsis:
“Seventeen years after a global nuclear catastrophe, civilization re-emerges from the chaos to find a world dramatically changed. In a post-apocalyptic Hope County, Montana, the remaining populace has gathered into different groups, each with their own rules for survival.
“In this new world order, the vicious Highwaymen, led by twin sisters Mickey and Lou, travel from place to place bleeding people dry of all available resources. As the Survivors try to defend their lands against the Highwaymen’s relentless onslaught, it’s up to you to come to their aid and lead the fight.”
Far Cry New Dawn arrives on February 15th.
