Ubisoft Announces Far Cry New Dawn During the Game Awards

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

Far Cry: New Dawn blasts into the post-apocalypse in February

While we don't know if these two women are the villains of the new game, it does follow Far Cry tradition if we assume they are. True to Far Cry form, Mickey and Lou will grace New Dawn's cover upon release, though they are far from the only new faces.

Like Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon and Far Cry Primal before it; Far Cry New Dawn will be launching as a standalone game rather than DLC. Like many other major game announcements these days, it seems the cover image has been leaked online.

New Dawn takes place seventeen years after a global nuclear catastrophe.

A Devil May Cry 5 demo - or the first demo, as Capcom calls it, will be available for free today exclusively on Xbox One.

Far Cry 5, which hit in March, broke sales records for Ubisoft.

Guns for Hire: Ubisoft admits that Far Cry New Dawn is balanced to give co-op players the best possible experience, for those playing solo the new Guns for Hire is an option. The Far Cry New Dawn release date is February 15 and is priced at $40 in the US. Interestingly, unlike previous games, these outposts don't stay liberated. It's up to you, the player, to push back against these new foes and help the survivors.

Once you've sent the Highwaymen running with their elbow pads between their legs, you have a choice: claim the base for your group, or pick it clean for more resources. This time around, he'll be able to ride with you on vehicles. Foes will level with you too, and the most powerful of their number - the heavily-armoured Enforcers - will significantly increase the challenge.

One tidbit that caught our attention is that you can take a companion character with you on expeditions outside of Hope County, Montana.
