The game is essentially a sequel to last year's Far Cry 5, though it won't be a "full" Far Cry game. Rather, it'll be more like Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon or Far Cry: Primal. These games use the same basic map as the major releases, don't have any DLC or multiplayer, but tell a new story in a new setting or with some major twist on gameplay. For instance, Blood Dragon was a neon-pink 80s' action movie where you fought dinosaurs (and one of the best Far Cry experiences period). Primal took place in prehistoric times it was a prehistoric first-person shooter without guns. That's a creative direction to take the franchise, even if it wasn't my favorite entry.
Far Cry New Dawn is bringing gamers back to Hope County. However, this isn't the rural farmland and montane wilderness which they may remember. Nuclear devastation and seventeen years have transformed the landscape of Montana into something very different. Not only that, but with Far Cry New Dawn expeditions, players can even travel beyond the county's borders and out into the wider world.
Announced during The Game Awards, New Dawn is set in a post-apocalyptic version of Far Cry 5's Hope County. Despite the post-apocalyptic setting, this is easily the franchise's most bright and vibrant entry. Far Cry New Dawn will deliver everything fans have come to expect from the series but with some new and interesting twists to the old formula. One of Far Cry 5's alternate endings culminates in a devastating nuclear war that wipes out most of humanity. Far Cry New Dawn takes place in 17 years after the nuclear holocaust. You play as a Hope County resident who is trying to survive in this harsh new world. While the fundamental gameplay is largely similar to previous installments, there is a greater emphasis on surviving off the land.
Surprising many last year when it was announced, Far Cry New Dawn directly follows the events of Far Cry 5. There are plenty of players wondering the same thing before they buy/try: do you need to play Far Cry 5 to understand what is going on? We played it, and can offer up a bit of guidance on that front. Keep in mind we're going to talk about the events of Far Cry 5 a bit, so if you did want to play that 100% spoiler free, here's your warning.
There's only one rule in gaming: don't be boring. Players can tolerate awful AI and grimy graphics if there's a payoff. But if your game is as thrilling as a Jeffrey Archer novel, no amount of spit and polish can save you. I mention this because Far Cry: New Dawn is an unspeakably dull game, and I'm really annoyed about it. Far Cry: New Dawn is the long-anticipated follow-up to last year's Far Cry 5. Set in the fictional Hope County, Montana, you play the role of an idealistic soldier helping to protect a fledgling utopian society that's rebuilding from the ruins of a global nuclear war. Standing in your way is an army of bandits called The Highwaymen, who are led by a heavily-armed pair of sociopathic twins. It's an unambiguous tale of good versus evil.
