New ‘Far Cry’ Box Art Leaks Ahead of The Game Awards

'Far Cry New Dawn' turns Hope County into a nuclear wasteland next year

Based on the teaser footage, and backed up by the leaked image, Far Cry: New Dawn will be a post-apocalyptic game. And no, that isn't a typo. Left unattended, the Highwaymen will retake them and increase security, upping the difficulty each time you come a-knockin'. It has been developed by Ubisoft Montreal with input from Ubisoft Shanghai, Ubisoft Kiev and Ubisoft Bucharest.

You can see 15 minutes of gameplay from the game below - and it looks as stylish as you'd expect from a DMC title, courtesy of Arrekz.

Far Cry 5 dropped players into the fictionalized Hope County, Montana, where you and your strike team of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents attempted to end a cult's hold over the region.

It wasn't just Montana where the bombs fell; Far Cry 5's ending was the beginning of a global nuclear apocalypse. Yet, despite causing millions of deaths and bringing about the complete collapse of society, it turns out that a bit of nuclear destruction really brings out the best in America's plant life.

Unlike most post-apocalyptic shooters, New Dawn spurns the traditional grey-looking Fallout aesthetic completely. Based on the freakish - but very real - phenomenon of "super bloom".

The leak was on the Far Cry subreddit by user HereComeDatAlt. This trailer shows Nero and Dante fighting all sorts of enemies, as well as the new character V. Join fellow survivors and lead the fight against the unsafe new threat the Highwaymen, and their ruthless leaders The Twins, as they seek to take over the last remaining resources.

Mickey and Lou guide the Highwaymen as twin leaders, taking everything they can from the land before moving on and doing it all over again somewhere else.

You probably know the drill with Far Cry already: in New Dawn, you're going to explore a huge map, including Far Cry 5's Hope Country, craft cool weapons, recruit specialists to help you out, kill some murderous animals and people, and there's online co-op.
