Far Cry 6 has been announced. This open world adventure from Ubisoft Toronto and Ubisoft Berlin is taking players to the tropical island of Yara, where a regime holds an iron grip. There's several different special editions of the game, with different benefits depending on your price range. This can all get a bit confusing, so we've got a guide that'll help you pick the best option.
Different versions of the game
- Balanced extras: Far Cry 6 Gold Edition (opens in new tab) ($110 at Amazon)
- All-digital: Far Cry 6 Ultimate Edition (opens in new tab) ($120 at Amazon)
- Top of the line: Far Cry 6 Collector's Edition (opens in new tab) ($200 at Ubisoft)
Every Far Cry 6 special edition
The first special edition on the docket is Far Cry 6 Gold Edition (opens in new tab). For $110, this includes the game and a season pass, which entitles you to three DLC packs sometime after the game has released. You'll also get a unique steelbook case. The digital version is $100 but naturally does not include the steelbook.
Meanwhile, the Far Cry 6 Ultimate Edition (opens in new tab) is only $10 more, at $120. It includes the game, season pass and three special item packs with unique outfits, weapons and more. That said, it's only available digitally, so you'll be giving up the ability to get a steelbook or physical copy of the game.
The Far Cry 6 Collector's Edition (opens in new tab) is the top-of-the-line choice for Far Cry fans. This package includes everything included in the Ultimate Edition as well as a unique steelbook and a replica flamethrower. It's only available directly from Ubisoft. You can see everything included in the image below.
Far Cry 6 was originally scheduled to release on February 18, 2021 but has been delayed and is now set to release at some point past April 2021. It's coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5, PC and Stadia.
A great balance
Far Cry 6 Gold Edition includes the Season Pass, which'll net you three big DLC packs post-launch. If you grab it physically, you also get a neat steelbook case.
Get every DLC pack
In addition to the Season Pass, the Ultimate Edition of Far Cry 6 includes three different packs of customization options, so you'll have plenty of choices for how you style Dani Rojas. It's only available digitally though.
Everything a budding rebel wants
This package includes everything in the Ultimate Edition, as well as a replica flamethrower! You can only get this directly from Ubisoft.
Just the basics
Overthrow the regime
Far Cry 6 is advertised as having the largest world of any Far Cry game yet. In it, you play as Dani Rojas, a man or woman dedicated to bringing down Castillo, no matter what.
