Far Cry 6 takes place on the fictional Caribbean island of Yara, which is inspired by Cuba and described as “the largest Far Cry playground to date” and “a tropical paradise frozen in time”. It is ruled by “El Presidente” Antón Castillo (Giancarlo Esposito), a fascist dictator with full control over the island
Far Cry 6 leaves behind the Montana of Far Cry 5 and New Dawn, and heads for a Caribbean vacation in the fictional country of Yara, where things are, unsurprisingly, a bit chaotic. Ubisoft’s next shooter is set amidst the riots trying to oust evil dictator El Presidente from power.
The reveal trailer for Far Cry 6 introduces its main villain, Yara’s dictator Antón Castillo, and his son Diego. Antón is intent on suppressing a guerrilla revolution by any means necessary, with Diego following in his footsteps. In the reveal trailer, Antón passes down one of those sinister lessons, telling Diego that he will need to keep a tight hold on the people of Yara with the helpful visual learning aid of a live grenade. Definitely not the lesson that your average 13-year-old is learning from their father.
Ubisoft also released a Far Cry 6 title sequence trailer that lets on what some of Yara’s history might be—potentially wealth gained through plants grown for pharmaceuticals.
