Far Cry 6 follows Assassin's Creed's lead by giving you a choice with who you play as.
Unlike Far Cry 5, which provides full character customisation, Far Cry 6 has a fixed lead - Dani Rojas - which can be male or female depending on your choosing.
You'll make this choice at the very beginning of the game, with little context of what it means. In short, go with your preference, as it's ultimately cosmetic - but this page can provide additional information if you're undecided.
Far Cry 6 male or female choice explained: Are there any differences between male and female Dani Rojas, and which is canon?
Moments into the introductory cutscene, Dani will be looking at their passport in first person, and is asked to chip into the conversation. It's at this point you have a choice of a male or female Dani.
This choice has little context surrounding it, but know that whichever Dani you decide, the game and story will unfold the exact same way.

- The Dani Rojas choice is cosmetic and doesn't affect gameplay or the story
- To quote Ubisoft, "both Danis are equal, both are canon"
This means you must simply go with your preference. If you're undecided, the video near the top of this page shows the remainder of the opening cutscene, if you want to see both male and female Danis in action.
