Far Cry 6 was already a fairly out-there open world experience when it launched last year, allowing you to fashion a firearm out of an old Walkman which would play the Macarena while you chopped down hordes of foes. Now it’s getting even crazier, with the release of the Lost Between Worlds expansion, due out on 6th December for $19.99.
“Following their exploration of a mysterious meteorite impact site, Dani will discover themselves in a twisted space between worlds accompanied by a noncorporeal lifeform named Fai,” the press release teases. “Players will need to repair Fai’s broken spacecraft by collecting five lost shards, each increasing Dani’s overall stats for survivability, bringing them one step closer to escape.”
There’s a roguelite aspect here, as you’ll need to navigate 15 different Rifts, at your own pace and with your own strategy, in order to recover the aforementioned shards. As you progress, you’ll unlock new tools and combat abilities, allowing you to revisit certain areas and uncover fresh paths. Fascinatingly, there’s even inspiration from classics like Ikaruga; for example, you’ll need to toggle between coloured weapons to defeat different enemies.
Upon completing the DLC, you’ll unlock new gear which you can use in the main game to further liberate Yara. And this may come in handy in New Game +, which is available from today as part of a title update, alongside a feature called Completionist Aid, which will help you to track down any outstanding collectibles you haven’t discovered yet.
Of course, if you’re yet to even try Far Cry 6, then a free trial is available on the PS Store for PS5 and PS4 from today, allowing you to play through the entire first chapter from the campaign. And if you like it, you’ll be able to transfer your progression into the main game, which is currently available digitally at a discounted price.
