Far Cry New Dawn Brings Players into a Vibrant Post-Apocalyptic Frontier

Far Cry New Dawn

Far Cry New Dawn – the standalone sequel to Far Cry 5 coming to PlayStation 4 on February 15, 2019 – takes us to a world that’s just beginning to emerge from global nuclear destruction. Set 17 years after the catastrophe, Far Cry New Dawn unfolds in a drastically transformed Hope County. Nature has bounced back and taken over, giving way to a brilliantly colorful superbloom phenomenon. Survivors have begun to build a new, makeshift community from the ruins, and you may recognize some of them from Far Cry 5 – like Pastor Jerome. This new world isn’t all wildflowers and hope, though, because the Survivors now face a new threat: the Highwaymen, a roving band of scavengers led by a merciless pair of twin sisters, Mickey and Lou.

The Twins were children when the apocalypse hit, and the lessons they learned growing up on the harsh new frontier gave them a vicious, live-for-today outlook – one they share with their followers. The nomadic Highwaymen wander the countryside, stripping the meager resources from every place they visit, and either killing or recruiting everyone they meet. Now, they’ve turned their sights on Hope County, and if the Survivors are going to withstand the onslaught, they’re going to need your help. (And the help of your co-op partner, if you decide to team up with another player.)

Building a defense against the Highwaymen will take more than a quick trigger finger. You’ll need to ally with the Survivors, and help them rebuild the Homebase, called Prosperity. The Homebase is also where you’ll be able to craft makeshift weapons and vehicles, and train a new generation of Guns and Fangs for Hire – including Timber, the Akita who may just become your new best friend. You’ll also be able to use it as a launching point for Expeditions, missions that will take you far beyond the borders of Hope County to explore wetlands, canyons, and other new locations around the country. The Expeditions will be different for every playthrough, meaning there’ll be plenty of unpredictable chances to blow stuff up and wreak havoc among your enemies. The battle against The Twins comes to PS4 on February 15, so get ready to cobble together a DIY arsenal and face the new threat.

Do Far Cry 5 season pass holders get a discount?

    Agreed. I still have serious buyer’s remorse for the season pass, I 100% hated every addition like Vietnam, Mars, etc. Did not enjoy, did not even finish most of them.
    And this New Dawn looks like more of the same reskinned stuff. If there’s no discount for that ripoff of a season pass, I’m skipping.

    No. It is a direct standalone sequel. Not DLC.

This looks like every other Far Cry game: a re-skinned, re-textured version of the previous one. Don’t see much new here..

Not too eager to jump back into this after the absolute trash that was Far Cry 5’s ending.

First time I’ve legit thrown away a game I bought in years.

Zero interest in Far Cry New Dawn. Whether it’s the case or not, it certainly appears as if it was content ripped from Far Cry 5. The slight discount ($39.99) convinces me even more. They know it’s not a full game. And don’t tell me this was developed separately from FC 5. If they had released it as a $15 DLC for FC5, Season Pass holders would have felt cheated. So instead in “fairness” they decided to cheat everyone. People should steer clear and not support this kind of shady release.

    I have lots of interest in Far Cry: New Dawn. Far Cry 5 was awesome and a fun Co-op game. I will be buying it and fully support its release.

Wow people are quick to hate.Game looks great to me,the trailer was great…I still have a lot of Farcry to play so not paying full price for it of course but nevertheless the game looks good.It’s just lookin too much like Rage 2 lol and spoiling the end of Farcry 5 for those who did not played it like me.But it seems to me that this could be fallout done right.

What really bothers me though is the release date…february is way way too soon,Farcry 5 won’t even have a year by that time,come on ubi.
