SAN FRANCISCO — February 15, 2019 — Today Ubisoft released Far Cry® New Dawn, the newest installment of the award-winning Far Cry franchise. Set in a breathtaking and colorful post-apocalyptic world, Far Cry New Dawn is now available for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X and Windows PC for $39.99. Far Cry New Dawn is rated M for Mature.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal with support from Ubisoft Shanghai, Ubisoft Kiev and Ubisoft Bucharest, Far Cry New Dawn is a first-person shooter set in a completely open world. Far Cry New Dawn thrusts players into a brilliant post-apocalyptic setting where they will encounter a dual threat – The Twins, Mickey and Lou. Players can recruit an eclectic cast of Guns and Fangs for Hire, or a Friend for Hire for co-op play, to experience unpredictable, unforgettable Far Cry Moments where anything can happen.
Seventeen years after a global nuclear event dramatically transformed the world, Far Cry New Dawn thrusts players into a wildly beautiful and dangerous environment reclaimed by nature and characterized by a vibrant superbloom. As the captain of security for a man named Thomas Rush, players will arrive in Hope County to help the Survivors of the nuclear catastrophe fight back against a marauding band of Highwaymen. The new villains, The Twins Mickey and Lou, grew up in the lawless post-apocalyptic frontier and their only philosophy is to live for today. Each with their own distinct approach, together The Twins provide both the brains and brawn to lead the Highwaymen and solve the problems they face… in any way they see fit.
Players must help the Survivors grow stronger by upgrading the Homebase, called Prosperity. As players progress, they can upgrade the Homebase to craft more powerful weapons and gear, as well as face off against higher ranking enemies through Far Cry New Dawn’s “light RPG” gameplay mechanics. Along the way players will encounter a mix of new and familiar faces, including new furry companions Timber the Akita and Horatio the boar. New to the franchise, players can also venture to replayable locations called Expeditions, set in unique locations across America. These snatch-and-grab missions will let players acquire valuable resources and get out – quickly.
