So a post-apocalyptic Far Cry.

I hope they focus on creating a tighter experience this time instead of just throwing in as much crap as they can.

Hmm if only those girls in that cover art were white males and the tied one was a women. Looks fake

I guess this game will definitely have co-op where you can choose one of two sisters in the aftermath of Far Cry 5. It just seems too soon to me. I also assume that the white guy strapped to the truck was apart of the old cult.

The cover image is designed to stir outrage. "New Dawn", tattered American flag in the bottom corner, double dose of POC badass women who don't need no men except as target practice.

This is Far Cry, when don't they go outrageous for their covers that aren't pre historix

Post-apocolyptic race-war battle royale... with cheese?

I wonder if this will go well with Wolfenstein: Youngblood. It reminds of when comics tried something different with Batgirl in order to get young females more interested in reading comics.

I think it's funny. They always had good covers, including the first one and the spin-offs.

Doesn't FarCry Historically have the Bad Guys on the Cover Art?
1, Primal and Blood Dragon don't. Not sure if 2 has the bad guy.

Not a fan of the art style there, I was sort of hoping it would be more like over the top Fallout style.

But I'll wait till there's gameplay

When they said post-apocalyptic I thought it meant fighting mutated humans and animals with makeshift weapons. Given the trailer didn't expect it to be dour like Metro but something with the Far Cry tone.

Ugh. Another Far Cry? And of course they are going with the “shocking” cover or reveal. Just like 5. But then 5 ended up being middle of the road and disappointed all the people who were foaming from the reveal with the thoughts of killing the Nazis or whatever.

I don't mind black ladies being the leads in this game but that cover art is horrendous! The "Father" being hung for target practice and looking "oh so scared" really neuters the character created in the first game. The snarky smiles on their faces is pretty stupid too.

I hope this cover art is fake and hope this doesn't end up feeling like forced wokeness. That was how WD2 felt to me and this looks to capitalize on that same trend. I guess they did warn us though.

I think this is really a great step forward for the medium, I mean all developers know that enthusiasts absolutely LOVE being force fed games clearly driven by identity politics. Look at how well Battlefield V has done.

now i have to subscribe to this thread to read all the great faux outrage from the gaming purists here.

i hope for their sake that the game is historically accurate!

Listen, I'm not saying women don't belong in games, i'm just saying chainsaw crossbows are unrealistic.
