Far Cry games tend to always give you an incredible story. Sure, they’re usually all in first-person where you’re surrounded by an amazing open world. Yet the stories within these games always hook you. Ubisoft has also been trying to find great actors to add to the cast of these games each time. They managed to hit hard by adding Giancarlo Esposito as the main antagonist of Far Cry 6, “El Presidente” Anton Castillo. Few people can play the villain better than this man.
The story takes place on the fictional Caribbean island of Yara. It is ruled by Anton Castillo, a fascist dictator who has full control over the island. He is trying to get his son, Diego, to follow in his footsteps. Yet he’s not so sure this is right for him, but his father insists. You take on the role of a freedom fighter named Dani Rojas (gender decided by player), a former Yaran Armed Forces soldier now turned guerrilla soldier. Rojas and co. attempt to restore the nation back to its former glory.
When Horizon: Zero Dawn came out in 2017, no one really expected it to hit as hard as it did. We should have known better, as Guerilla Games already showed us their skills with the Killzone titles. Horizon quickly became a major favorite, and still ranks as one of the most popular Playstation games to play. Now the sequel to this game is coming, called Horizon Forbidden West. In this game, the impressive Aloy is back. The young huntress of the Nora Tribe will be sent on a major quest.
She will have to tackle the arcane frontier known as “the Forbidden West” to track down the source of a mysterious plague that has been killing all it has infected. Her journey will be difficult as she travels hostile regions with very dangerous enemies, deadly machines, and horrific storms. The ecosystem for the game will be expanded upon even more, as we will see lush valleys, snowy mountains, tropical beaches, and more. Plus, you’ll see ruined cities above ground and below the water!
