Comparison: Similarities & differences of Far Cry 6 vs Far Cry 5 vs New Dawn:

Far Cry 6 is very different from Far Cry 5, & it seems like a good move from Ubisoft. The sequel is making good changes to avoid the issues that Far Cry 5 had regarding building world & story impact.

Why Far Cry 6 is better than Far Cry 5 & New Dawn:

Reason: Far Cry 5 & New Dawn did not take story elements or atmosphere seriously.

Far Cry series is popular for cruel antagonists, enjoying beautiful locations, & the game is about surviving in hostile environment. The series focuses more on above aspects especially from Far Cry 3 & beyond, & may be in previous Far Cry games too. Far Cry 5 was different in this regard because it lacked the atmospheric elements of previous games of the series. Even though Far Cry 5 had all the staples but could not offer the same kind of original gameplay that Far Cry series is known for. Far Cry 5 did not consider the story elements or atmosphere that seriously. Things are however different in sixth entry which apparently is providing a very interesting story & atmosphere.

New settings of Far Cry 6 can prove to be the real game changer:

Far Cry 6 is set in a new location & its story is not related to Far Cry 5. Take the role of an improvised leader of resistance in sixth part, & kill Tyrant & his son to save country Yara. The tyrant can even kill his nation to forge his heaven so beware of him.

Far Cry 6 is once again set in a tropical location. Esperanza is the capital city of Yara, & it will be the only urban location in the game series, which will play uniquely in Far Cry titles. Verticality is added to Far Cry 6. Running across rooftops, using back alleys, & battling against some of the hardest enemies in this setting, can make things different.


Far Cry 6 focuses more on resistance as compared to Far Cry 5 & New Dawn:

Far Cry 6 is once again focusing on resistance & uprising like Far Cry 5, but in totally unique ways. Far Cry 5 did not focus much on story & it favored gameplay. But it seems that the sequel is focusing more on game world & narrative.

Giancarlo Esposito is the main antagonist of Far Cry 6 & it is apparent from here that the sixth game is taking resistance seriously than the prequel.

The first trailer of the game showcases main antagonist, ruler Anton & his son Diego.

Unlike Far Cry 5, protagonist of Far Cry 6 can talk:

Dani Rojas is playing the main hero role in Far Cry 6. He is an unwilling revolutionary & will apparently be pushed into fight. His narrative is more exciting than other main heroes in Far Cry series. His voice acting & motivations will bring life into the series story, especially since quiet hero of Far Cry 5 made the narrative less impactful than earlier games of Far Cry series.

Buddies feature from Far Cry 5 New Dawn are returning in Far Cry 6:
