Here's the teaser:

Ooohh, post-apocalyptic. Looks like Ubisoft are taking a stab at their own little Fallout-style game, maybe?

Also, again, spoiler warning:

It also looks like it could be a direct continuation from one of the endings of Far Cry 5. Interesting. Don't think Ubisoft ever done this with the Far Cry series before.

Anyway, thoughts?

Yawn another far cry game. instead of announcing splinter cell and revive the series. no no, lets just rehash far cry and assassins creed again and again and again.

also this is set in post apocalyptic. RAGE 2 also releasing next year and will own this game.

Could be interesting, Farcry 5 is a good game

**Spolier** discussion

It would make sense for my play through any way as I got the nuke'd world ending

far cry 5 is perfect example of how not to make open world game.

In your opinion, which is fine, but I enjoy them. I also think Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the best game in the series for years as well.

I wonder if its a post-apocalyptic expansion to FC5 rather than a fully new game

FC5 had a truly awful story and characters so i'm not too keen to get more of that

They usually release an alternative version of the main game in between releases (Blood Dragon and Primal) so that's certainly feasible.

I think the nuclear thing at the end of Far Cry 5 came out of the blue which was highly unusual and left a lot of questions. The previous Ubisoft Far Cry games had closure that ensured there won't be any follow-up.

I'm game for this next release although I get the feeling Ubisoft is experimenting too.

@ghosts4ever: It's funny how you criticise some games for being just rehashes, yet another copy and paste Just Cause game is the best thing ever... lol, ok then.

Anyway, I'd be up for another FC. As long as it's not an online thing.

I am actually really stoked for this. I really dig the post apocalyptic setting. Be it Zombies, or Nuclear, but really more so nuclear.

I have only played Far Cry 3,4 and 5. #3 was the best but 4 and 5 had their merits and still had lots of fun. But I understand large Sandbox games are not for everyone.

Would be nice to not play as a mute in this game and would be awesome if they added some RPG elements. Pull back on the fetch quests and rescuing abducted people. I always love the trippy stuff they do, in drug sequences. They have a lot to work with and I am excited.

Perhaps, I'm hard of hearing. But, did the narrator mention three years of rain? If so, that means this next one will be FC5 Part 2 and some characters from Part 1 will return. I don't mind so long as Part 2 provides the closure and there is no Part 3. If there will be a Part 3, then it's milkage time.

It had even worse DLC, so who'd want more of that ?

A Fallout type game from Ubisoft? I suppose it beats Bethesda using their 20 year old game engine for Fallout 5.

I liked FC5 despite the weak characters and story but I think Ubisoft are moving in the right direction particularly with AC Odyssey which I freakin love (my personal GOTY) so yeah I'm excited to see what they have coming up next.

i never call just cause as best thing ever. but yeah JC2 in 2010 was best of its kind ie third person open world gta clone.

@ghosts4ever: You haven't stopped posting about how awesome you think JC4 looks and that everything else that came this year is sh*t in comparison (LOL! btw).

As I said, you can't criticise other games for being just another rehash when JC4 is the textbook definition of it.

Hated FC5 is was so boring and the characters were shit, the only redeemable thing about it was cheeseburger.

Why won't they just make another SC game, get your shit together Ubi.

not to mention Rage 2 and Metro Exodus also have post apocalyptic and how much this game will be pale in comparison to those games.

Aside from that rumor, I also heard Ubisoft could be revealing a new Splinter Cell cause they been fighting for resources on it few months ago. I hope this is just a cover up and could be revealing SC over a new Far Cry game.

I actually like FC5, never understood why people here hated that game but oh well right?

One thing the Far Cry games have over those games are the utilization of the 3D space via air, land, and water. I'm not limited to a walkathon or burrowing under like mice....pretty much a walkathon too.

Although I'm disappointed at the lack of Reset Outpost in FC5, I still had a blast.

The only thing Ubisoft needs to do is to make the bad guys more lethal, especially from the air.

It does seem more like a DLC than a new game, they just completed FC 5 so it would be terribly bad news if they are already throwing out a brand new game.

Also, FC5 was shit beyond shit so imagine how bad a new FC game would be if they already came out now.

They're the bad guys? Fine with me. I mean, the last 3 games had the villains on the box art.

I really enjoy the Far Cry games. I know what they are and I know there isn't a ton of innovation here. I don't expect it. Still, I do enjoy them and that includes Far Cry 5. I'll play the next release and enjoy it too.

He's not wrong though. It's been a very very long time since we got any PoP or SC while Far CRy and AC pretty much churned out annually.

If the twins were protagonists, sure. But, they're the villains. It's been a while since I've seen a female villain. I actually relish the thought of killing them and anything pink. ;)

Farcry , Rage two, Outer world, Fallout 76.

Post Apocalyptic seems to be all the new rage noe.

I will say Outer World actually looks cool.

I'm pretty damn stoked for the new Far Cry. Yes, it's post-apocalyptic, but it's not exactly a surprise why if you played Far Cry 5. And if the game ends up being better than Fallout 76 atleast, then who cares?

Hopefully they bring back Hammock for the soundtrack.

Gotta say, I'm genuinely excited for Ubis new stuff.

This gen ubi has proven they can change and create totally original new games, even with old franchises! (unlike Rockstar who just keep repeating last gen poo in RDR2)

So, awesome Ubi games coming again. Ubi is the king of virtual worlds!

Based on PC Gamer's article.....

https://www.pcgamer.com/far-cry-new-dawn-will-bring-back-some-familiar-faces-but-boomer-isnt-one-of-them/

The format of the game world in New Dawn will be similar to the ones in Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4. There is the open-world map plus the unique storyline maps which aren't accessible in free-explore. I have a gut feeling this is where Reset Outpost Mode makes a return (Yaaaay!). I guess they couldn't retrofit Reset Outpost Mode into Far Cry 5.

i remember there was a time when people hated far cry 2 and call it boring, repetitive. but it was pretty great game.

now compare to newer far cry games. far cry 2 is a masterpiece.

5 was okay for a bit, but I heard the DLC was awful. Also, it's way too early for another Far Cry. I'll probably be skipping this one at launch and picking it up for half off down the road.

Funny you compare Rockstar and Ubisoft, both seem hellbend on milking people with microtransactions.
