Far Cry 6 Revealed With Intense Trailer About Dictator And Son Amidst Revolution

After a recent PSN leak, Ubisoft officially confirmed Far Cry 6 with a cinematic trailer that introduced us to the antagonist and new setting. Get ready to lead a guerilla revolution, fighting to free an island nation from its brutal dictator: Antón Castillo, who is portrayed by Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul fame.  

The trailer, which you can watch above, opens with Antón handing his teenage son, Diego, a grenade and taking the pin out. Fearful and surprised, the son asks, “What are you doing?” “The pin simply holds the handle in place. It is only when you let go that the grenade goes boom,” he responds. 

The pair walks outside, with the son uneasily clutching the grenade, knowing one false move could be deadly. As they do, Antón tells his son that one day he will be president like him. “Our people, they do not know how to be happy. They are torn apart by opinions, noise, indecision, strangled by their own freedoms. And even if you have love in your heart, even if you want what’s best for them, even if you only want to save them from themselves, they will hate you, Diego. Everything you say, do, believe will be wrong.”

As Antón issues those strong words, chaos is erupting outside. People are fighting for their freedom, fighting Antón and what he stands for as their leader. His statue is being pulled down. Smoke is filling the air. Protest signs are everywhere. Violence is ensuing. A revolution is beginning.

The trailer ends with Antón asking his son if he understands what’s ahead and to prove it. Then a release date of February 18, 2021 flashes across the screen. Fay Cry 6 is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC.
