Mainline Far Cry video games at all times inform a new story, with new heroes and villains to get to know. However, Far Cry 6 breaks from custom by together with one direct, sudden, and barely puzzling connection to Far Cry 3.
This story accommodates main spoilers for the ending Far Cry 6. Don’t learn any additional if you do not need to know extra.
While Far Cry 6 very a lot tells its personal story, the ending affords a stunning connection to Far Cry 3 by reintroducing the voice of Vaas (performed by authentic actor Michael Mando). After the credit function, an audio-only scene performs out that includes a dialog between guerrilla fighter Juan Cortez and a character referred to within the captions as ‘Smuggler’, however who may be very clearly the voice of Vaas.
The dialog is pretty innocuous, discussing the ultimate occasions of the sport and establishing that Juan is supplying Viviro (the fictional most cancers drug produced within the Far Cry 6’s setting, Yara) to the smuggler. But the truth that Vaas is right here in any respect is extra fascinating than the chat itself (which you’ll be able to pay attention to within the video beneath).
The factor is, Vaas may be very a lot supposed to be lifeless. In Far Cry 3, protagonist Jason Brody stabs the long-lasting villain a number of occasions (though, to be honest, Vaas does seem to be still faintly alive the last time we see him). Far Cry 3 is ready in 2012, whereas an alternative ending in Far Cry 6 all however confirms that it takes place in 2020 or 2021 by mentioning pandemic lockdowns.
So, does this imply that Vaas survived in spite of everything? And, in that case, does Ubisoft have plans to carry him again into the mainline Far Cry video games? We know that Vaas will likely be a (*3*), however that is depicted as an in-world online game, so this cameo is likely to be hinting at one thing bigger within the character’s future. We’ve requested Ubisoft for remark.
It’s not the one Far Cry connection we realized about just lately. In our IGN Inside Story about (*6*), director Clint Hocking confirmed a long-discussed principle that the villain of Far Cry 2 was an older version of the protagonist from Far Cry 1.
