Far Cry New Dawn Gets a Trailer, Comes Out February 15th

The apocalypse never looked this bright.

Far Cry New Dawn is not only real, but it’s also coming out pretty soon. Releasing on February 15, Far Cry New Dawn will allow players to get their post-apocalyptic fix, this time in Montana’s own Hope County.

In addition to announcing the game’s release date, Ubisoft also released the game’s very first gameplay trailer. Showing off the game’s survival, building, and shooting mechanics, the game looks to offer a gameplay loop not too different from Fallout 76. However, unlike FalloutFar Cry New Dawn’s setting seems to have tangible enemies, allies and a pretty promising story.

One of the most striking things about the game’s trailer is its use of color. Far Cry New Dawn is extremely colorful for a game that takes place after the apocalypse. Ditching the signature grittiness of other survival-based games, Far Cry New Dawn offers vibrant (including) pastels and dazzling palettes.

Despite this visual brightness, the game still seems like it contains all of the heaviness of a post-apocalyptic jaunt. Throughout the trailer, characters exchange hard-hitting bits of dialogue, including lines like, “the only currency left in this world is power,” and, “welcome to the new natural order.”

The last twenty-four hours have been quite the whirlwind of Far Cry news. Yesterday, Ubisoft released a teaser trailer for a new Far Cry project. Then, earlier today, box art for the game was subsequently leaked around Twitter. Of course, because nothing is a secret in 2018, the game’s existence was leaked on an Amazon listing roughly an hour before The Game Awards started.

You can watch the new trailer for Far Cry New Dawn below. The game will launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and PC for $39.99.
