When can you pre-download Far Cry 6?

Fans of the Far Cry franchise won’t have to wait long to pre-download the latest game in the series. Xbox, PlayStation and PC players will get official access to the game in the first week of October, although some systems may load content earlier than others.

Here’s everything there is to know about Far Cry 6’s pre-download schedule.


Far Cry 6 is officially out on October 7, but some can pre-download

There’s good news for Xbox users: Far Cry 6 is now available for pre-download. However, PlayStation gamers will have to wait a little longer to preload the game, as the file won’t be offered until October 5. While the PC’s pre-download date has yet to be officially validated, it’s likely that the game will also be available on Steam on October 5.

Of course, players won’t be able to play the game in their respective time zones until midnight on October 7th. One thing’s for sure, there’s sure to be a plethora of new gameplay content for all Far Cry 6 fans to unwrap upon the game’s release.

This includes an all-new story for the main character, new travel methods, and never-before-seen healing mechanics. In the sixth installment in the Far Cry series, players must fight to free outposts from oppressors.

While all the exact weapons are yet to be revealed, there are sure to be some fan favorites and all-new firearms. The perk system also gets a new look; players will now equip clothes and equipment to get perks.

Perhaps the most exciting addition to arrive in Far Cry 6 is the implementation of an element known as ‘Supremos’. This feature can be seen by players as some sort of ultimate power or ability that needs to be recharged before using it. One such ‘Supremo’ is called the ‘Exterminador’, which fires mortars from a player’s backpack.

Far Cry 6 looks set to be an exciting next chapter for the franchise. Xbox users can pre-download the game now to save time when it launches on October 7. PlayStation and PC gamers will likely be able to do the same two days before release.
