Far Cry 6 Will Introduce Third-Person Mode For The First Time In The Series’ History

Far Cry 6 Will Introduce Third-Person Mode For The First Time In The Series’ History

Far Cry as a series has been host to a multitude of themes, vistas, and ideas over the years. Since Vaas introduced a lot of players to the series in Far Cry 3, the series has shown a willingness to change and adapt, and Far Cry 6 doesn’t look to be much different.

In fact, perhaps more so after the game’s controversial ‘politics’ conversation led narrative director Navid Khavari to confront the game’s tether to world events head-on. And now, it looks as though the game is about to take on something entirely new.

Far Cry 6 Will Feature Third-Person

Far Cry 6 Uses Third Person

In an interview with GameSpot, Khavari suggests that Far Cry 6 will be the first game in the franchise’s history to utilise a third-person view. He speaks candidly in an emailed response to the site - “In cinematics, [third-person] is something the team tried early on, and it felt surprisingly seamless. It instantly felt like there was more of a connection to Dani [Far Cry 6’s protagonist]’s journey in the world, more of a connection to this epic story in Yara.”

However, before you third-person shooter fans get too excited, it might not run through the whole game.

Far Cry 6’s Third-Person Is Not Permanent

Far Cry 6 Uses Third Person

Of course, the game takes place mostly in the first-person mode as is customary for the Far Cry series. The game will utilise moments of third-person views (think chase scenes and the like), but it won’t be available as its choice of view for the rest of the game. Far Cry 6 is still strictly a first-person title until the story beckons for the use of the view. You’ll be able to see Dani speaking to NPCs a-la The Witcher and walk around hubs over their shoulder, but for the bulk of the gameplay, you’ll be in first-person.

It’s an interesting touch for the Far Cry series, and it’s a bold step for the team to take - but given the scope of the 6th mainline installment, it’s in keeping with the game’s ambition. And who knows, it could become a new staple for the series.
