Hmm... I might agree that there were some similarities, but I think there were some significant differences like the lake:

While I missed most of the Ubisoft E3 presentation, one thing that I did catch is that there will be DLC where you play as the main villains from FC 3/4/5. I are intrigued...

From what I can see on the Ubisoft Store site, the only option for a physical version on PC is the Collector's Edition, and that's flagged as an Ubisoft Store exclusive. I'd surmise that the reason you can't order a PC copy on Amazon is that no such product actually exists.

I think my wife might have serious doubts about my maturity if I order that Collector's Edition :wink:

After reading some gameplay articles, I'm having concerns that Ubisoft might adulterate this Far Cry in a similar manner that they have gone away from the essence of Assassin's Creed gameplay in Valhalla.

It likely makes a ton of sense from the business side. They have chosen not to manage a widescale physical product launch. It probably saved them quite a bit.

Well wishful thinking, because the day 1 patch is downloading now and it's literally 37 gigs. Almost the same size as the initial install. With my internet speed it might be done by tomorrow morning.

That sounds like Sony is pushing out the entire updated preload instead of patching it. I just checked the preload on Ubisoft Connect, and it simply downloaded a small amount of data. It took about 10 seconds for the additional download, so the actual patch itself isn't that big.

Might as well just sign up for their pass for a month as this isn't a game I'm going to dump months on. I watched a few videos and the console versions seem better optimized than the PC version.. That probably would get sorted out via patches so I may just wait a bit. So many other things to play it's overwelming. :lol:

I saw the same behavior from the Ubisoft Connect client.

I think whatever is the 15 a month plan has it. I'm going to check when I get home. Edit or now...

Ubisoft + 14.99... As I've bought way too much lately I'd rather just drop the 15.

Yeah they aren't trying to confuse us like EA Origin Play, ubisoft only has one plan and it includes everything.

...and as someone that burns through games like it's a race, this is a solid suggestion. I did it for the last few big Ubi releases.

Re: Far Cry 6

I got about an hour in and some of the missions and it's definitely a Far Cry game. It's starting to look like they copied from Just Cause's quiz answers. Not in a bad way mind you but it's somewhere in there.

Now the bad news. The game has some serious frame rate issues. I'm running an i10-10900 / 3080 / dedicated NVMe / 64 GB. I can not run it with any single setting set to Ultra. If I do, the CPU pegs and the GPU drops to 50-90% and frame rates go all slide show. Holy bad porting Batman. It'll get fixed I assume but I'm playing it at High and it still is all over the place frame rate wise. I see it bopping around from low 100s due to the 20s. It looks good but it feels like it needs to be CPU optimized.

Ya I played for a bit and performance was all over the place. Funny thing is that apparently on the series s it's super smooth. It will get patched so whatever.

This amuses me because I just told some friends that it feels like a Just Cause game. I think part of it is the setting, but also the Supremo is a very Rico kind of weapon.

I played through a few early missions this morning and it's not really grabbing me. It just feels kind of... meh.

I left the settings on the default which was High across the board and I haven't noticed and frame rate drops, but apparently I am immune to noticing that for the most part.

I am not sure I am buying this one. I watched a playthrough, so I'm not going to give any spoilers. The playthrough also did not cover any optional activity like hunting animals, driving challenges, and so on. I was wondering if the player was using a cheat since the player just shoots at everything and takes a TON of damage, no trigger discipline at all, and seems to never use the turrets.

It feels like a Far Cry game, where you are free to approach the mission anyway you like from quiet stealth to overwhelming firepower, and the mod system doesn't look too bad, but the Supremo seems a bit over the top, esp. with the other variants to fit your play style. And auto-retract parachute like Rico's? Hmmm... I dunno. I do like the way you can change your outfit in an RPG-like system though, and the same with the weapon mods.

I can see the comparison to Just Cause, but here, the point is NOT destruction just for destruction's sake. But both did share similar meta-game mechanics, of destroying the infrastructure to destabilize the regime. The differences are pretty subtle, but JC is more about... chaos, and FC6 you feel more like an avenging angel on a purge streak.

The mood is also MUCH much darker. No spoilers, so no more details.

I notice they don't specifically call out High vs. Ultra. I played it originally in high and I didn't notice problems. I only experimented with a switch to Ultra to see if I could get the 30 FPS and it went slide show. I meet or exceed the requirements below. I then just sort of kept an eye on the FPS in high just to gauge it. It is fine in high - looks great - but it does seem they could squeeze much more out of my hardware.
Recommended 4K configuration (30fps, ray tracing on)

If I understood it I would explain it to you. Their explanation screens suck. There are gloves that make your flameproof and a mask that makes you poison-proof and a shirt that lets you pick up materials when you drive near them and a bracelet that increases your armor when sprinting. They have different tiers and there are checkboxes that indicate some kind of set bonuses maybe but no info on that. You can also buy gear and weapons with mponey you get from scrounging and killing.

Meh maybe I'm just not in the mood but I wasn't feeling it playing today. Glad I did the pass instead of buying it. Runs fine if you use the dynamic resolution, but eh it's like a copy and paste of the previous games.

I thought maybe next month I could afford 1 month. Cant afford a game but that may be doable. I could play Fenyx, Valhalla, and FC6.

Then my friend online reminded me my computer couldn't run any of those lol.

FarCry 2 was my last one. I haven't touched one since. It's interesting that some wouldn't even add 1 & 2 to a list because the game didn't "grow" to a specific point before #3. I've avoided them because I thought they stopped being clean shooters and started being more like jungle GTA. I know that's a gross over-simplification. It's just the shortest way to explain my perception.
