Far Cry 6 is out Oct. 7 on a slew of platforms: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Stadia and Amazon Luna.

Far Cry 6 preorders include several different editions ranging from the $60 standard edition to a $200 Collector's Edition, and there are both physical and digital preorder bonuses available for securing your copy early.
Far Cry 6 is set on the fictional Caribbean island of Yara (loosely based on Cuba), which is ruled by "El Presidente" Antón Castillo, played by Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito. You play as Dani Rojas, a former army soldier who's now a guerrilla fighter attempting to free the nation from fascist rule. Far Cry 6 features open-world gameplay across a wide map, various missions to take on, numerous weapons to upgrade and more.
