We don't know much about outside of that, but it looks like Far Cry will be taking some inspiration from Fallout and sending us into a post-apocalyptic scenario. If you take a closer look at the trailer, you may notice that in the first frame we see the dropping of a nuclear bomb just in the background, with a familiar-looking Montana-esque barn and a United States flag next to it.

In the interim, Ubisoft has published a brief teaser giving us a glimpse of the game's post-apocalyptic theme. Now a leak of the game's Xbox One cover art has popped up on Twitter, revealing the new game's title as Far Cry: New Dawn.
