Like its predecessor, “Far Cry 6” (released globally on October 7) is played from a first-person perspective. All you see is the character, the arms and legs of Dani Rojas. But as the rhythm changes, “Far Cry 6” will become the first “Far Cry” game to show the faces of players. Dani Rojas is played by Sean Rey (as a male) and Nisa Gunduz (as a female). What is behind this change? Well, Ubisoft Toronto, the developer of “Far Cry 6”, wants local guerrilla Dani to express their opinions and allow gamers to connect with Dani and feel Dani during the character journey.
“Whenever you are telling a story about a guerrilla or a revolution, you need to embody this role as a carrier,” Far Cry 6 narrative director Navid Cavali told reporters last week. “So letting a silent protagonist doesn’t really happen to us, telling the story effectively. I think from the beginning it was,’How do we tell an epic narrative that is also character-driven? I think watching Dani , Experience the progress of Dani’s journey and their interactions with other factions and rebel groups. You can see and feel Dani’s views, their views on what is happening. So this is very important.”
Far Cry 6 is about Cuba, but Yara is not Cuba
“Far Cry 6” narrative producer Nicola Jones added: “This is one of my favorite differences between “Far Cry 6” and previous works, because some fans may remember that this is not the first time you have a talking player. Characters. We saw this in Ajay Ghale’s Far Cry 4. But I think one of the biggest differences in this game is that you don’t just see through Dani’s eyes in the movie, you actually see it in the scene Here comes Dani. The film team and the narrative team decided to do this very courageously and bravely in order to adopt these two different methods.
“Because when you suddenly see Dani and the character in the scene, it will be different, you will feel the emotion they are trying to convey, Nisha and Sean work hard. If Dani feels pain, you will see it, and you will also Feel it. This is a turning point, not only can you hear your player character speaking, but also see the emotions they experience throughout the journey. It can really help you connect with Danny and see that this is A character with a true story to tell.”
Whether you choose to play the male or female character Dani, there is no difference in their journey. Jones said: “We want to make sure that the only difference is the performance between Nisha and Sean. The dialogue is the same. Throughout the character arc, every dialogue between Danny and our key character is exactly the same. This is true. It’s important. You should choose the hero you want to embark on this journey with him, but you should not compromise on the story you get.”
Far Cry 6 will let you put away your guns and explore Yara
At least the protagonist of “Far Cry 6” is a native, different from the past. According to Khavari, this is a “more personal struggle” for Dani because they “fight for the freedom of the country.”
“Dani is indeed a disadvantaged person all his life,” Khavari added. “Dani is an orphan and was discharged later. They are just not suitable, and throughout the process, Dani regards herself as a number. They are a number all their lives. It is easy to be forgotten, and the process of that story, Their journey is really to realize that they have a purpose. They have a special goal to achieve, and that is to save the entire country.”
Far Cry 6 will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Stadia and Amazon Luna on October 7.
