gathered into different groups, each with their own rules for survival.

In

Mickey and Lou, travel from place to place bleeding people dry of all
available resources. As the Survivors try to defend their lands against
the Highwaymen’s relentless onslaught, it’s up to you to come to their
aid and lead the fight.

In the latest installment of the
award-winning Far Cry franchise, you are the last line of defense in a
transformed, post-apocalyptic Hope County. Help the community of
Survivors grow stronger, craft a makeshift arsenal through Turf Wars and
cross-country Expeditions, and form unexpected alliances to fight for
survival in a dangerous new frontier.

Key Features

FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL IN A BREATHTAKING POST-APOCALYPTIC WORLD
-
Sprawling superbloom fields and dense overgrowth invite you into a
wildly beautiful yet deadly post-apocalyptic landscape, to discover on
your own or with a friend in two player co-op.
- Wildlife has not gone untouched by the disaster, with some predators evolving rugged natural defenses.

UNFORGETTABLE CHARACTERS COLLIDE WITH A RELENTLESS DOUBLE THREAT
-
Clash with the brutal Highwaymen and their unruly leaders Mickey and
Lou. Known as The Twins, these sisters combine brains and brawn to give
their army an iron grip on Hope County’s precious resources.

side. These new allies, as well as some familiar faces, each bring
unique and critical skills to the fray.

BATTLE FOR RESOURCES IN HOPE COUNTY AND BEYOND

0:04
NARRATOR: 17 years after
a nuclear apocalypse,
0:07
the Polk County of
Far Cry New Dawn
0:08
is nothing like you remembered.
0:10
The landscape has been
twisted and reshaped
0:13
by fire and radiation.
0:14
The resulting super
bloom has filled it
0:16
with brilliantly colorful
plants and biting wildlife.
0:19
And a rampaging
legion of scavengers
0:21
known as the Highwaymen have
set up ramshackle outposts
0:24
amid the ruins.
0:25
And Far Cry New Dawn's changes
run much deeper than that,
0:28
affecting everything
from how weapons
0:30
work to how you get around
in this brave new world.
0:36
In addition to Hope
County survivors,
0:38
there's a ray of hope lighting
up the post apocalypse,
0:40
and his name is Rush.
0:42
Rush and his band travel
across the country looking
0:45
to help settlements
get back on their feet,
0:47
and you're his
captain of security
0:49
until you arrive in Hope
County, and get ambushed
0:51
by the Highwaymen,
an army of live
0:53
for today bandits led by
twin sisters, Mickey and Lou.
0:56
You-- you made us look weak.
1:00
That ends now!
1:01
NARRATOR: From
there, your main goal
1:03
is to regroup build up your
home base at prosperity
1:06
a fortified settlement
of Hope County survivors,
1:09
and make life as difficult for
the Highwaymen as possible.
1:12
You're free to wander and
pursue missions however
1:14
you see fit, though.
1:17
Specialists, guns for
hire, and things for hire
1:19
are scattered across
the map, including
1:21
familiar faces like Grace
Armstrong and Nick Rye.
1:25
Capable new
gunslingers like Nana.
1:27
And ferocious loyal
animal friends
1:29
like Timber and Horatio.
1:32
They all need your
help, and if you
1:34
do them a solid like finding
grace's stolen saw launcher
1:37
prototype in a fortified
train yard for example,
1:39
or rescuing a
friendly pig/living
1:42
battering ram from
slaughter, they'll
1:44
repay the favor by
joining your cause.
1:46
Guns and things for hire
can use their abilities
1:48
to help you in battle
and pull you out
1:50
of danger, while
specialists will
1:52
lend their skills to your
growing settlement, letting you
1:54
upgrade prosperity facilities
to craft a better gear, unlock
1:58
new fast travel options,
including airdrops,
2:01
and leave Hope County
on expeditions.
2:03
Generally, more people
and animals on your side
2:05
means you'll have a
better chance of survival
2:07
out in the unforgiving
wilderness.
2:09
As well as more
furry faces to pet.
2:11
Who's a good boy?
2:12
Yes, you are.
2:14
Good boar.
2:15
Good-- good tusk monster.
2:19
Speaking of survival, you
might encounter enemies
2:21
out there who seem nearly
impervious to your bullets.
2:24
That's because weapons and
vehicles now have ranks.
2:27
And to craft better ones, you'll
need to upgrade your workbench
2:29
back at prosperity.
2:31
Not only does a Rank 2
pistol pack more punch
2:33
than even a Level 1 machine gun,
but higher rank weapons also
2:37
tend to include cool additions
like scopes, silencers,
2:40
and extra improvised
appearances.
2:42
So it's in your interest
to start building a beefier
2:44
arsenal as soon as possible.
2:49
With help from
recruited specialists
2:50
and ethanol looted
from outposts,
2:52
you'll also be able to upgrade
your selection of vehicles,
2:55
explosives, health items,
intel maps, and even
2:58
your maximum health.
3:01
Of course, all this takes
raw crafting materials.
3:03
With a little bit of puzzling
and the occasional dancing
3:06
fish, you can scavenge these
from hidden treasure caches,
3:09
or steal them from
the Highwaymen,
3:11
either by hijacking
their convoys,
3:13
or raiding their outposts.
3:15
And if you want a chance
at greater rewards,
3:17
you have the option to scavenge
outposts, which repopulate them
3:20
with a tougher contingent
of Highwaymen, who'll
3:22
give up better rewards
when you take them out.
3:26
Not everyone you'll
meet in Hope County
3:27
is a Highwayman or a settler.
3:29
The wilderness is home to
wandering hunters and scouts
3:31
who might be willing
to trade or share
3:33
juicy info about
nearby treasure caches
3:36
or other points of interest.
3:37
They used to recruit
locals into their ranks.
3:39
NARRATOR: You'll also
be able to make contact
3:41
with the remnants of the project
at Eden's Gate, whose followers
3:44
now embrace a reclusive
back to nature philosophy,
3:46
and a mythic reverence for their
missing father, Joseph Seed.
3:50
They'll even become
allies, helping
3:52
you hunt the Highwaymen
as you work to fulfill
3:54
their strange prophecies.
3:55
And while they may have
rejected technology,
3:57
they're still
surrounded by plenty
3:59
of hallucinatory weirdness
fueled by their mind controlled
4:01
drug of choice, Bliss.
4:04
Post-apocalyptic Hope County
is filled with mystery, danger,
4:08
and explosive potential
for chaotic fun,
4:10
especially if you bring a
co-op buddy along for some road
4:13
warrior high jinks.
4:14
GAME NPC: They're behind us!
4:15
GAMER: Nice.
4:18
NARRATOR: And Far
Cry New Dawn's action
4:20
extends far beyond the
embattled Montana setting,
4:23
with expeditions letting you
travel to beached aircraft
4:25
carriers, occupied Navajo
villages, and other completely
4:28
new self-contained
locations to locate
4:31
and steal back special
packages from the far
4:33
ranging Highwaymen.
4:35
And make a frantic getaway
before they swarm you!
4:40
It's all coming to PS4, for
Xbox One, and PC on February 15.
