Far Cry 6 is a first person shooter game developed by Ubisoft Toronto that was first released in October 2021. The Far Cry 6 Rambo DLC is a free crossover update, wherein players can complete a new mission to earn a new weapon. The content is free for anyone who owns the game.
Far Cry 6
The game was released last year for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Stadia, and Amazon Luna. It is the sixth installment of the Far Cry series and is set in the fictional island of Yara.
The island is ruled by a dictator, Anton Castillo, who is grooming his young son, Diego, to take over his role. Players take on the role of a guerrilla fighter, Dani, who attempts to topple Castillo’s regime. Players can explore the island on foot, or use vehicles on land, water, and air. The island is divided into seven regions and has different terrains, which test one’s skills. Players can also use a variety of firearms that can be customized using materials that are available on the land. The game mostly received mixed reviews.
Players are fighting to overthrow the tyrant and to restore Yara to its former glory. Before beginning the game, players can select Dani’s gender.
By July 2002, when Far Cry 6 was announced, the game had been in production for over four years. The creators seem to have loosely based the stories around Cuba and the Cuban revolution. When asked if they were making a political statement with the game, the creators denied the rumors.
The Far Cry 6 Crossover
Ubisoft’s statement reads, “Far Cry 6 is serving up more guerrilla content for its Yaran rebels hungry for 80’s-style carnage.”
In the crossover mission, the titular character-cum-rebel, Dani, teams up with a Rambo superfan to take on the Yaran army. The reward for successfully completing the mission is a Vengeance Bow that can be used to take down helicopters and enemy vehicles. The Vengeance Bow can shoot explosive-tipped arrows. In keeping with the title, there are some references to hit moments from the film-franchise.
Ubisoft partnered with STUDIOCANAL, which owns the rights to Rambo I-III, to come up with the exciting new mission. As part of the Ubisoft Store Lunar Year Sale, the developer is offering select editions of Far Cry 6 at a discount of 40 percent. Later, the Far Cry 6 Season pass will be available at a discount of 25 percent. Those who wish to add on to their haul can also purchase the Rambo Bundle, which contains gear, weapons, and a vehicle inspired by the movies. The ‘Rambo: All the Blood’ mission can be played solo or with a friend. Purchasing the Rambo Bundle will give players access to an array of accessories and weapons that they can use to customize the guerrilla soldier.
The recent Far Cry update can be downloaded for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and PC. It also comes with various gameplay enhancements and bug fixes. The update’s complete patch notes are given in detail on the Ubisoft website.
The file update sizes are 17-22 and 23 GB for the PS4 and PS5 and 12 and 25 GB for the Xbox One and Xbox X/S Series. For the PC, the HD texture pack is 12.33 GB while without the HD texture pack it is just 8.64 GB.
