What You Need to Know
Far Cry: New Dawn is a standalone spin-off that also serves as a narrative sequel to Far Cry 5 set 17 years after the events of the game. After a nuclear exchange has devastated the land, a colony of survivors attempts to rebuild civilization in Hope County. However, their efforts are threatened by a group of bandits known as the Highwaymen. With few options left, the survivors form an alliance with New Eden, the remnants of the antagonistic cult from Far Cry 5. Rather than assume control of the protagonist of Far Cry 5, you actually play as a completely new character.
Release Date And Price
Far Cry: New Dawn is set to launch on February 15 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. As a series spin-off, it’s actually priced at the budget price tag of $40. If you’re looking to purchase the game, be sure to refer to our pre-order guide, which offers details on the various editions.
