Far Cry: New Dawn
One of the anticipated and expected games to be announced was Ubisoft’s franchise, Far Cry. The franchise has a new sequel which is the upcoming Far Cry: New Dawn. This is the spin-off of the fastest-selling Far Cry title in the franchise Far Cry 5. It sets seventeen years after The Collapse in the post-apocalyptic Hope County, Montana. This game is coming this February 15th, 2019.
- THE NEW ORDER – After living through the apocalypse, the Survivors in Hope County now face a new threat: the nihilistic Highwaymen, vicious scavengers intent on bleeding the county dry. When the Survivors put out a call for help to combat this deadly threat, you are quickly thrust into the middle of a new battle for the future of Hope County
- BUILD A MAKESHIFT ARSENAL – Since the Collapse, survivors have been piecing their shelter, tools, and weapons together from the broken remnants of the old world. The results may look ramshackle, but they’ll keep you alive in a fight. Your Homebase will let you construct powerful weapons and vehicles, giving you more options than ever for explosive, over-the-top action
- MAKE NEW FRIENDS – Embark on an exciting new story campaign as you battle against the Highwaymen and their leaders, the Twins. Mickey and Lou are twin sisters , leading an army of scavengers who want to exhaust Hope County of all its resources before they move on. As you take the fight to the Twins, you’ll have a mix of new and unique Guns for Hire and Fangs for Hire to watch your back
- SURVIVE, LIBERATE, AND EXPLORE – At the center of Far Cry New Dawn is your home base. Upgrade it to get stronger weapons and gear to help you survive out in the open world. Meanwhile, the Highwaymen are holed up in Outposts, which you’ll need to conquer – and once you do, you can replay them for a tougher challenge and better rewards. Finally, Hope County isn’t the only place that’s been ravaged by the Collapse, and you’ll be able to range far outside its borders on Expeditions, visiting new territories across the USA
