Ubisoft’s latest major open-world title is finally here with the sixth instalment in the beloved Far Cry series.

The title is set in the fictional country of Yara, deep in the Caribbean, with players looking to start a revolution and overthrow the country’s dictator, Antón Castillo (played by Giancarlo Esposito).

As with all Ubisoft games, there is a vast world for players to explore, with plenty to do as they adventure through the game’s different locales, but some players are looking to try and make a change.

Here’s whether you can switch your play style to a third-person perspective at any point in Far Cry 6.

Can You Play Far Cry 6 in Third Person?

Sadly for players, for the most part at least, the answer is no.

Far Cry 6 has no dedicated third-person mode and players will be forced to play in the first-person perspective.

This even extends as far as driving, with players not having the option to change, and therefore will be required to drive around as if they were in the front seat.

There are occasions where the latest Far Cry switches things into third-person, however, that’s by design and the player will have absolutely no influence over that.
