Far Cry New Dawn standalone sequel arrives February 15th

As you can see in the trailer, the game is set in a post-apocalyptic world. Featuring all new protagonists, notably The Twins as seen in the key art, who are the leaders of Far Cry New Dawn' Highwaymen and apparently want control of the area and resources all to themselves. We'll find out when it releases February 15, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

A cryptic teaser released ahead of the ceremony hinted at a direct follow-up to the Far Cry 5 story, which is a drastic departure for the series as all previous games were standalones. This ending is canon in Far Cry: New Dawn, and the Highwaymen aren't the only thing players will have to deal with.

In this "new world order", a vicious gang out of outlaws, dubbed the Highwaymen, led by twin sisters Mickey and Lou, travel from place to place bleeding people dry of resources and killing whoever needs killing.

This new game from Obsidian is a single-player game where "you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power". Unlike other post-apocalyptic settings, like that of Fallout or the Mad Max movies; New Dawn's post-apocalyptic setting is verdant and vibrant, not a bleak wasteland. It will likely use the same map as Far Cry 5, along with numerous same assets.

"In Far Cry we have generally had efficient AI, but they have a lifespan of a few seconds", Decant explained.

With a nuke triggered at the end of Far Cry 5, unsurprisingly, Hope County and the rest of the world isn't exactly in the best of shape.

Speaking of bases, you have your own this time, called Prosperity base. Here, you can upgrade your weapons and vehicles.

Regarding the plot, the player will again have to face Joseph sid, the main antagonist of the fifth part.
