We liked Far Cry 6, awarding it a score of 3.5/5 stars in our review. Although the story didn’t quite live up to the hype, we praised the graphics and gameplay, saying “At the end of the day, Far Cry 6 is a beautiful playground filled with stuff to shoot and things to blow up. Far Cry 6 is just another Far Cry game, one that desperately wants to utilize the imagery of a revolution without having anything meaningful to say about one.” Even though it’s just another Far Cry game, it’s still a ton of fun, and we highly recommend jumping in if you haven’t already.
Far Cry 6 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna. For more information regarding this patch, visit the official Ubisoft forum.
