by Martin Lindgren
Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. Far Cry® 6 immerses players into the adrenaline-filled world of a modern-day guerrilla revolution.
As dictator of Yara, Antón Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps.
Playing as local Yaran Dani Rojas, join revolutionary group Libertad and fight your way to Esperanza to take down Antón Castillo and his oppressive regime.
As you take on the military forces of Yara, you must keep your senses sharp and your wits about you, which is why we’re pleased to announce that Tobii Head and Eye Tracking support will be available upon Far Cry® 6’s release. Available on October 7th 2021, expand your understanding of the battlefield with Extended View, quickly acquire targets with Aim at Gaze, tag enemies, and control your allies, for smooth, seamless control of combat.
Tobii eye tracking features available in Far Cry®6
At Tobii we have a long-standing partnership with Ubisoft combining their high quality games and narratives with immersion enhancing eye tracking features. It was only natural for us to pursue a collaboration for the upcoming Far Cry® 6 and we're excited that Ubisoft shares the same vision.
“Since 2014, we have been working together with Tobii on no less than fifteen Ubisoft titles, bringing PC players the ability to boost their experience with more interactivity and a higher level of intuitive gameplay. We are happy to build up on this long-lasting collaboration and the latest innovations in eye-tracking technology to bring even more immersion to our new Far Cry 6 through exclusively adapted features.”
Rose-Marie Nargaud, Associate Director Technological Partnership EMEA at Ubisoft.
