Mainline Far Cry video games all the time inform a brand new story, with new heroes and villains to get to know. Nevertheless, Far Cry 6 breaks from custom by together with one direct, sudden, and barely puzzling connection to Far Cry 3.
This story comprises main spoilers for the ending Far Cry 6. Do not learn any additional in the event you do not need to know extra.
Whereas Far Cry 6 very a lot tells its personal story, the ending presents a shocking 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 personality 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. However the truth that Vaas is right here in any respect is extra attention-grabbing than the chat itself (which you’ll take heed to within the video beneath).
The factor is, Vaas may be very a lot speculated to be useless. In Far Cry 3, protagonist Jason Brody stabs the long-lasting villain a number of instances (though, to be honest, Vaas does look like nonetheless faintly alive the final time we see him). Far Cry 3 is ready in 2012, whereas an alternate 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 all know that Vaas shall be a playable character in upcoming Far Cry 6 DLC, however that is depicted as an in-world online game, so this cameo may be hinting at one thing bigger within the character’s future. We have requested Ubisoft for remark.
It is not the one Far Cry connection we discovered about lately. In our IGN Inside Story in regards to the making of Far Cry’s villains, director Clint Hocking confirmed a long-discussed idea that the villain of Far Cry 2 was an older model of the protagonist from Far Cry 1.
