Far Cry New Dawn leaked for Dec. 7 release

Far Cry New Dawn, the latest game in the series, will be released Dec. 7 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We already knew a new Far Cry game was likely on the horizon thanks to the teaser trailer that Ubisoft released at the beginning of the week. But now, we have our first look at Far Cry New Dawn, Ubisoft’s follow up to Far Cry 5, courtesy of a leaked Amazon listing.

Taking place immediately after the events of that game, New Dawn appears to be set in the post-nuclear wasteland after an unrelated war ended in nuclear destruction around the United States — at least in one of the game’s endings. Unlike most of the past Far Cry games, New Dawn appears to give players makeshift weapons like CO2-powered crossbows that shoot saw blades.

While the game’s exact plot is still unclear, according to details we know, players and their co-op allies will be tasked with leading a band of survivors against a group of evil marauding highwaymen as well as trying to survive against a variety of mutated creatures.

The game appears to be a smaller-scale stand-alone spinoff, similar to Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. According to the Amazon pre-order listing, which went live shortly before The Game Awards — where the game’s first official trailer was set to debut — New Dawn will cost $39.99.
