Far Cry VR Announced as a Location-Based VR Game Set in Far Cry 3
Zero Latency and Ubisoft are collaborating on Far Cry VR, which is bringing players to a location-based VR experience in Far Cry 3's setting.
With the release of Far Cry 6 next year, fans of the chaotic shooter franchise have a lot to look forward to from the series’ next mainline installment. However, it seems that Ubisoft also has more in store for Far Cry fans, this time bringing the series into a VR experience that features a familiar face returning once again through Far Cry VR.
Ahead of the Ubisoft Forward presentation today, Ubisoft confirmed that it is developing Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity, a new VR experience set in the Far Cry universe. Specifically, the game is set in the midst of Far Cry 3, and will have players returning to the clutches of Vaas Montenegro as they seek to escape the setting of the third game, the Rook Islands. You can check out the official reveal trailer below:
According to Ubisoft, Far Cry VR is being made in collaboration with Zero Latency, the VR arcade makers that host various location-based and free-roam VR experiences at several cities around the world. The game will take the form of a location-based VR experience as up to eight players try to work together to find their escape from the Rook Islands, and will be able to explore and roam around different areas of the islands and fight off enemies.
At the moment, Far Cry VR is confirmed to be launching sometime in 2021, and will be exclusively at Zero Latency locations, though it’s unclear yet if it will be limited to a specific region like the US or will be worldwide.
