Far Cry: New Dawn – after the bombs have dropped

The next Far Cry is set in a post-apocalyptic Montana, but it doesn’t look as much like Fallout as you might imagine…

Ubisoft already teased a new Far Cry game would be announced at The Game Awards and it looks like all the fan theories are right and it really is a direct sequel to Far Cry 5.

There seems little point trying to hide the fact anymore, since all the marketing already gives it away, but Far Cry 5 ends with a nuclear attack and New Dawn picks up a generation later in the same location.

Exactly what’s going on in terms of the main antagonists isn’t entirely clear but they seem to be the two women on the box art above (Far Cry always features the main enemy, rather than the protagonist).

Far Cry 5 bad guy Joseph Seed is in the trailer though and seems to be upset that he’s failed to protect Hope Country from the ‘Collapse’ that he predicted.

If it’s the same as Far Cry 5 you’ll likely play as a customisable, mute character but you can already see you have some new animal friends that include a trained warthog.

It’s impossible to tell at the moment, but it’s likely that New Dawn will use a version of the same map from Far Cry 5, as Far Cry Primal did with Far Cry 4.

The two spin-offs also have similar release dates, with new Dawn due out on February 15 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The obvious inspiration for the game though is Mad Max 2, especially the idea of a peaceful community being attacked by violent raiders.

So while there are some similarities with the Fallout games New Dawn actually looks closers to Rage 2, which also had a cool-looking new trailer at The Game Awards.

But Bethesda’s other post-apocalyptic open world game has a considerably less serious and more anarchic tone, so maybe all three can happily coexist…
