Lol so much for that late 2019 release date speculation. Game looks like hot garbage.

Looks pretty cool, and I typically love the post-apocalyptic setting, but yeah it is being a bit overdone in games nowadays.

I loved Primal (and so far loving 5 which I just started) in large part because of their unique premises/settings. 4 didn't do much for me because it felt like more of the same.

Yeah, this looks like the first Far Cry that I skip. I really don't know what Ubisoft was thinking both when they were designing it and when they were picking a date for it. They are releasing it just 11 months after Far Cry 5, in the busiest gaming window in years. It's releasing 2 weeks after Resident Evil 2 Remake and Kingdom Hearts 3, 1 week after God Eater 3 and Ubisoft's own Trials Rising, the same week as Crackdown 3, Dead or Alive 6, and Jump Force, and 1 week before Anthem and Metro Exodus. What an awful window to release it in. 

Then there is the setting. Out of all the great setting choices in the 2 most recent official Far Cry setting surveys, they go with post-apocalypse, one of the most overused settings in games. It's releasing 1 week before another post-apocalypse shooter, Metro Exodus, and 3 months before Rage 2, another post-apocalypse shooter. And both Rage 2 and Metro Exodus just look like better games to me. The art style on New Dawn looks ridiculous, it is on the same map as Far Cry 5 but 20 or so years after nukes drop, and yet the game is more colorful than Far Cry 5 with flowers everywhere. I get they didn't want to do just brown destruction everywhere like earlier Fallout games or Mad Max, but they could have found a happy medium between color and decimation like Rage 2 and Fallout 76 found.

Well, at least it's not $60. The expedition system seems cool as well.

Yeah this really didn't do anything for me. Definitely NOT what I was hoping to see. Rage 2 made me not even give this a second look. Multiplayer or not.



I was surprised they flat out ruined the ending to FC5 like that. The game isn’t that old.

Anyways we’ll see on this, depends on how close to GOTG Rage 2 it launches.

I think when they say the canon ending to Far Cry 5 was the nuke one, they only mean in regards to this game. There is no way that ending will still be canon when Far Cry 6 comes around, Hurk has been in every main Far Cry since 3, and they can't have Hurk in Far Cry 6 if he was trapped in a bunker for 17 years after Far Cry 5. Not only that, but basically every main Far Cry after this would have to be post-apocalypse if they keep this ending as the canon ending, because when the nukes started flying in the US, other countries would have likely launched their nukes at each other as well as the whole world would have been devastated. Most likely the ending where you walk away and plan to come back with the national guard later will be made the canon ending when time for Far Cry 6 roles around. 

3 months between them. Far Cry New Dawn is February 15, Rage 2 is May 14.
