Far Cry 6 Preorder Guide: Prerelease Discount, Bonuses, And Release Date
Far Cry 6 releases February 18, 2021 on current generation consoles, Xbox Series X, PS5, and PC.
Though Far Cry 6 isn't a next-gen launch title, but it should nonetheless be a good showcase for your new hardware when it releases early next year. Ubisoft has announced Far Cry 6 will release on February 18, 2021 on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. In typical Ubisoft fashion, numerous editions will be available to purchase, and preorder listings are already starting to pop up. If you already know you're down to jump into another zany open-world first-person shooter, you can snag some cool bonuses with your preorder, too.
Far Cry 6 is set in the present day in the fictional country of Yara, a tropical paradise that has been "frozen in time," largely due to the country's tyrannical leader Anton Castillo (played by Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito). As the hero of the story, you'll step into the shoes of Dani Rojas, who helps form a guerilla faction to oust Castillo from power.
While next-gen consoles will already be out by the time Far Cry 6 releases, it's worth noting that you'll be able to buy one copy of Far Cry 6 to play on PS4/PS5 and Xbox One/Series X. So if you aren't planning on upgrading to a next-gen console right away, you'll still be able to enjoy Far Cry 6 on PS5 and Xbox Series X whenever you do decide to upgrade.
Far Cry 6 preorder bonuses
If you preorder any edition of Far Cry 6, you'll get The Libertad Pack, which includes two in-game bonuses:
- Discos Locos: a deadly disc launcher, of course
- Libertad Chorizo skin: an angry-looking dog on wheels (with spikes!) that we absolutely must learn more about
The standard edition of Far Cry 6 comes with the bonuses listed above and is available to preorder now at multiple retailers. Walmart often sells new games--including preorders--for $10 less, and Amazon regularly matches these deals. Far Cry 6 is already available to preorder for $49.94 on PS4 and Xbox One at Amazon and Walmart. You can also preorder directly on the Xbox Store or PlayStation Store as well as the Ubisoft Store.
Far Cry 6's Gold edition comes with the preorder bonuses and the season pass containing three DLCs: Beware the Dictator, The Jewel of the Carribean, and A Nation Stranded in the Past. The digital Gold edition costs $100, while the physical steelbook edition costs $110.
Physical Gold steelbook edition - $110
Digital Gold edition - $100
Far Cry 6's $120 Ultimate edition comes with the preorder bonuses, season pass, and the Ultimate Pack containing three skin packs: Croc Hunter, Vice, and Jungle Expedition. GameStop is also offering an exclusive steelbook Ultimate edition for $130.
Physical Ultimate steelbook edition - $130
Digital Ultimate edition - $120
Far Cry 6 has a massive Collector's edition that's exclusive to the Ubisoft Store. Coming in at $200, the Collector's edition includes everything in the Ultimate edition, the preorder bonus, and a bunch of other goodies:
- Tostador 72cm Replica flamethrower (non-operable, of course)
- Far Cry 6 64-page art book
- 10 stickers
- Exclusive steelbook case
- "How to assemble" print detailing the flamethrower

The Collector's edition is currently sold out on PS4, Xbox, and PC. Ubisoft also recently announced that the Collector's edition for Xbox would come with a digital copy of the game. It's also worth noting that the Xbox version of the Collector's Edition will not include a physical copy of the game--players will instead receive a download code that will work on both Xbox One and Series X. The PS4/PS5 versions of the game will still contain a disc.
