Ready for something completely different? Ubisoft has revealed the new expansion for Far Cry 6, and Lost Between Worlds is looking pretty wild.
Lost in (folded) space
Just what Lost Between Worlds is still honestly something of a mystery. But then again, that’s kind of the nature of what will be a sci-fi spinoff, coming to Far Cry 6 in the form of DLC. Ubisoft revealed the new adventure today, and while some of it will be familiar to players of the base title, the majority is wildly new.
Yes, it still stars Dani Rojas, but this isn’y Yara. Or… actually, wait a second, because it is, but it also isn’t. The story is a little tough to explain, but more or less takes Dani into an alien ‘fractured’ version of her home country, one where there are much deadlier things than soldiers of the regime.
Here’s the trailer:
In Far Cry 6: Lost Between Worlds, players will begin a thrilling new chapter of Dani Rojas’ story, set in a fractured version of Yara. Following their exploration of a mysterious meteorite impact site, Dani will discover themselves in a twisted space between worlds accompanied by a noncorporeal lifeform named Fai. Players will need to repair Fai’s broken spacecraft by collecting five lost shards, each increasing Dani’s overall stats for survivability, bringing them one step closer to escape.
To recover the missing shards, players will need to rely on their guerrilla skills to navigate through 15 challenging and intense trials called Rifts, where they must defeat Shardfaces, humanoid and animal crystalline enemies, lurking around every corner. In each distinctive Rift, such as a shattered fortress suspended in the sky and an underwater Esperanza full of deadly traps, players will encounter different dangers and otherworldly obstacles. Players can choose how they approach each Rift and will uncover powerful weapons and tools along the way, and collect energy fragments scattered throughout the area, allowing them to revive and retry a Rift, if necessary. With multiple branching paths, platforming exploration, and intense moment-to-moment action, players will have a unique experience with each run as they master this twisted world. Upon mission completion, players will receive Fai’s powerful gear and will be able to take it back to Yara for an ethereal edge in the ongoing fight against the regime.Ubisoft press release
Haven’t played CF6 yet? No problem
While the expansion is the news of the day, there’s also a little matter of a new trial version of Far Cry 6 to talk about. The new trial edition is officially available right now, for Xbox and PlayStation platforms, as well as both Ubisoft’s and Epic’s shops on the PC.
It’s pretty meaty too, allowing players to get a good look at the game’s world. All in all, you’ll be able to explore Isla Santuario, and you can even keep your progress. So if you move on to the full game when you’re done with your test-drive, you won’t have to start over.
Speaking of, there’s also a New Game+ mode that’s included with the just launched Update 6. With that, you can re-start the story of FC6, but bring along all of your gear and weaponry from the endgame. Even for first time players though, Update 6 also has a little something to offer with Completionist Aid. That’s a nifty little feature that provide players “with guided assistance in uncovering all of Yara’s hidden secrets”.
