Far Cry 6 leak confirms Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito will star

Tropical map is series' largest to date.

Far Cry 6 has been revealed a little earlier than planned via a PlayStation Store leak, which has listed it for launch on 18th February 2021.

Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian star Giancarlo Esposito will play a major role as the dictator of Yara, a fictional country which looks heavily-inspired by Cuba.

You play as Dani Rojas, a local guerrilla fighter who takes on the dictator's rule.

The game's store description lists it as the "largest Far Cry playground to date" with the series' typical jungles and beaches as well as a city - Esperanza, the country's capital.

"Employ makeshift weapons, vehicles, and Amigos, the new Fangs for Hire to burn the tyrannical regime to the ground," the description concludes.

PlayStation 4 copies of the game will upgrade for free if you play on PlayStation 5 - which will almost certainly be the same for Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

We're sure to hear more about Far Cry 6 at Ubisoft's not-E3 event this Sunday at 8pm UK time.
