Ubisoft was planning to show off a new Far Cry game at its weekend E3 replacement event. But now, a leak gave away most of the important details about the game, including a look at the main villain. Ubisoft has also established we’ll be seeing the game at the show. Check out the small teaser below.

Ubisoft has five games coming out this year — we could already account for Watch Dogs Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Rainbow Six: Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters. All we knew about the fifth game was that it was supposedly a new release in one of Ubisoft‘s main franchises. Far Cry is really the only other significant series Ubisoft has that’s not already on that list.

The game’s cover image and details leaked via the PlayStation Store, where a listing for the game appeared, presumably a few days ahead of schedule.
Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As the dictator of Yara, Anton Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps. Their ruthless oppression has ignited a revolution… Play as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran and become a guerrilla fighter to liberate the nation…
They’ve cast as Anton Castillo: Emmy nominee Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad). And the game is based on a small country with a dictatorship going on.
Game will be officially unveiled at Ubisoft‘s show this Sunday. If the PlayStation Store leak is accurate, it’ll hit the stores on February 18, 2021.
