Ubisoft announces a new colorful post-apocalyptic Far Cry game at The Game Awards 2018.

As we predicted, Far Cry: New Dawn is a spin-off that has emphasis on co-operative play with a friend. The game itself is built around engagement and seems to merge multiplayer sentiments with singleplayer storytelling, pitting players in a rat race of survival with FPS action and allowing base fortification and mat hunting. The shooter won't have total multiplayer, however, and is restricted to 1-2 players.

New Dawn takes place 17 years after Far Cry 5's in a post-nuclear Hope County, and introduces two new nefarious villains: the twins Lou and Mickey who lead a vicious roving gang called The Highwaymen. The game looks to borrow FPS mechanics from Far Cry 5 and use spruced up assets from the previous game, all while throwing players in a playground of sorts built around live-style gaming.
