Far Cry 6 Season Pass puts you in the shoes of familiar villains

The game isn’t even out yet and we still haven’t seen what it looks like on last-gen consoles, but the Far Cry 6 marketing team is already teasing Season Pass content. One thing is for sure, Ubisoft is really aiming for the “I want to be a bad guy” fetish with this one. As shown during Ubisoft Forward, players will be able to walk a few miles in the shoes of previous Far Cry antagonists Vaas, Pagan Min, and Joseph Seed.

How does one become so villainous? What goes on in their twisted minds? What would you do if you were one of them? These are all questions that some might have when playing a Far Cry game. Ever since Far Cry 3, Ubisoft has tried to give us a diverse cast of bad guys to revolt against. Vaas, the clearly insane mohawked leader who insists on telling us what the definition of insanity is. Pagan Min, the well-dressed blondie who would’ve saved you all the bloodshed if you’d actually listened and sat tight. And Joseph Seed, the self-proclaimed savior of mankind who I actually felt sort for near the end of Far Cry 5.

But to come back to those questions. Ubisoft is giving us the opportunity to figure out the answers to all of them in the Far Cry 6 Season Pass by making us “become the villain”. Every part of the season pass is set in the twisted minds of these fearless leaders, and therefore also in their known environments. According to Ubisoft, every chapter will revolve around survival. The longer you live, the stronger you’ll get. But if you die, you’ll be thrown back to square one.

You’ll also be happy to hear that every villain will be voiced by the original voice actor. Troy Baker is voicing Pagan Min once more, Greg Bryl will do the same for Joseph Seed, and Michael Mando will provide the iconic voice of Vaas again. Michael Mando has been one busy boy lately since Ubisoft has pushed forward on Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity as well. Noth that the fans are complaining though. Vaas is still one of the top picks when it comes to Far Cry villains.

For some weird reason, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is also included in the Season Pass. This stand-alone expansion for Far Cry 3 is seriously fun if you’re into cybershit, but it has been gifted plenty of times in the past. Then again, there might be something to it. Maybe there’s something Ubi isn’t telling us yet. It could be a next-gen rework of the game. Then again, it might just be another port. We’ll see later this year. October 7, to be precise.
