Ubisoft says that the campaign of Far Cry 6 is fully playable in co-op, and endgame content has been teased for when the story is over.
Since the gameplay reveal of Far Cry 6 last week, we’ve been learning more about Ubisoft’s latest instalment of the popular open-world/first-person shooter series. Yet, it seems that we’ve got a few surprises to look forward to when its story is over.
Far Cry 5 and Far Cry New Dawn were fully playable in co-op, so it should come as no surprise that Far Cry 6 will follow its lead. Yet, it’s nice to get official confirmation nonetheless.
As reported by TheGamer, speaking to fans during a Reddit AMA, Far Cry 6 game director Alexandre Letendre confirmed that the campaign will be playable entirely with a friend.
Interestingly, Letendre also revealed that playing co-op with a friend is the only way to have a human companion in the game. The reason for this is that when playing solo, all companions are animals.
While Letendre didn’t reveal how long the Far Cry 6 campaign would be, he hinted that it will be a lengthy campaign giving players a huge amount of freedom on how they approach the story and its missions.
Additionally, when the campaign of Far Cry 6 is finished, lead game designer David Grivel teased that players will be able to continue the main story. Grivel didn’t give much away, but it seems that you might be able to explore the world and mop up any activities/missions that you may have missed.
Grivel pointed out that being able to remain in the Far Cry 6 world after the story is concluded is a first for the series and he teased “something else” in addition to the main story. Exactly what Grivel is referring to remains to be seen, but hopefully, we’ll learn more at the Ubisoft Forward E3 event next week.

Our preview of Far Cry 6 said that the game is ruthless, relentless, and ridiculous. Far Cry 6 will release for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on October 7th this year.
