Far Cry: New Dawn - Everything you need to know!
Take a trip on the wild side as we get up for the launch of Far Cry: New Dawn later tonight. Get up to speed with the game in our handy recap guide while you wait!
What is Far Cry: New Dawn?
Far Cry: New Dawn takes place 17 years after the events of Far Cry 5 in a post-apocalyptic Hope County that has been changed forever. Nuclear fallout has made a more vibrant setting with plenty of wildlife and changes to plants. Nothing you remember will be the same. You'll emerge from the wastes and have to rebuild your way back up as you band together with a group of survivors to tackle the dreaded highwaymen and their leaders, the Twins. Much like the previous game, you'll be exploring a rich world full of activities and taking down enemy outposts. This time around the outposts have changed and you can either scavenge resources and more on, or setup base which will force the highwaymen to eventually attack. After which you can try to take the location back for even better rewards.
Customisation plays a key role in the game and you can modify your weapons and vehicles to your liking, with various paint styles and even upgrade them to deal more damage. Each weapon and vehicle is upgradable and you'll need to upgrade to deal with some of the tougher challenges of Hope County. Guns for Hire also make a return, with some returning favourites and newcomers lending their services to you in your hour of need. The game also offers some new tools to deal with enemies, including a powerful saw-blade launcher that when upgraded can take out most foes with ease.
Players will work with survivors as they build their base of prosperity, a settlement made up of survivors. As you progress you'll be able to unlock more powerful weapons and vehicles. Hiring specialists will allow them upgrade your base for new gear, fast travel options and more. There's also a variety of RPG elements in the game, from looting to minimum level requirements and even new skills, which have been expanded upon this time with additions such as double jumping. The game also introduces "Expeditions", that are small chunks of gameplay that take place in separate locations such as swamp-lands, or even an abandoned theme park. These can be played solo or with friends in co-op.
