Three newly-revealed crossover missions will also be released for no additional cost. These start in December with “Danny and Dani vs Everybody”, which will see the game’s protagonist Dani Rojas team up with the actor Danny Trejos and his machete. A Rambo episode called “Rambo: All the Blood” will follow this in February 2022. Finally, a Stranger Things crossover, “The Vanishing”, wraps things up in March 2022 and tasks players with finding their missing base game companion, Chorizo the dog.

Six special operations complete the free content offering, taking players to unique new areas around the game world as they “snatch highly unstable chemical weapons from Antón’s arms dealers and get to the extraction point before it overheats”. The first two operations—Mesozoico and Maceo—will be available at launch, with four others releasing at later dates.

Purchasing a Far Cry 6 Season Pass gives players access to the rest of the post-launch roadmap which includes three DLC episodes as well as a copy of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. The three DLC releases will take players into the minds of villains from previous games in the series, starting with Vaas Montenegro in November, followed by Pagan Min in January 2022 and Joseph Seed in March 2022.

According to Ubisoft, the episodes will have players “fight to escape the horrors of your own mind" using a mix of Far Cry gunplay and roguelike elements. The episodes can be played solo or in co-op with a friend, even if they don’t own the Season Pass themselves.

No one will play this with me lol, I presume they are 10x as fun in coop.

I hope Danny Trejo is available as a side kick generally and not just in the main missions but its hard to tell from the trailer. Maybe it would be a lot of work to have him voice the number of lines you'd need for him to function in every situation imaginable.

Rambo and Stranger Things seem to be taking the place of Shovel Knight who used to be the character that appeared in dozens of games since Shovel Knight actually launched. I actually used to enjoy the Far Cry games but I've always found the DLC content to be by far the worst part. I don;t know if it's improved over the years though.

The roguelike elements is what's stopping me from getting the Digital Gold Edition as im simply not a fan of those aspects. But I will be buying the base game day one for $60 and once I complete it, trade it back in. Far Cry 6 will be my October game.

IDK why everyone hates Far Cry so much? I think these games are so fun. I am very much looking forward to some Rambo DLC 😄
True.

I just tune them out. Let a man enjoy what he/she likes. It’s not like their opinions matter on what a person enjoys.
