When you want to go on an action-packed adventure where all of the odds are against you and you don’t know when you’ll be safe, you can’t go wrong with Far Cry games. These games are phenomenal in the sense that they make you feel like you’re the badass star of an action movie.

Something that all Far Cry games share is an open world full of quests to complete, NPCs to interact with, gear upgrades to pick up, and much, much more. Each new Far Cry game is a refreshing take on their gameplay style that never seems to get dull or old, and that is something that every gamer looks forward to when a new game hits the market.

You might be wondering if you should play Far Cry 5 before Far Cry 6, seeing as they are both very new games. We’ve got you covered.

Should I Play Far Cry 5 Before Far Cry 6?

The answer is a resounding no. Each Far Cry game has a completely different story, with the exception of some characters that are mostly there as fan service. You can start playing any Far Cry game and it will lead you into its gameplay and story without any need for playing previous games.

Should I Play Far Cry 5?

Now, let’s take a look at what both games have to offer and if you should play them. Starting with Far Cry 5, which is set in an anarchic version of the United States, where power is everything and everyone wants to control as much as they can. Most of the gameplay is set in the open world where you are completely free to explore as much as you want and do whatever you want.

As you progress through the game, you will encounter many NPCs and enemies that would like nothing more than to kill you and take everything you have. Usually, you can find enemies situated in outposts that can be approached in many different ways. Whether you take a stealthy approach and execute everyone quietly, or go guns out, with maximum carnage, that is up to you.

Aside from this, your goal is to stop the radical priest that is convincing people to cause carnage through the guise of a doomsday cult. Something new that you might like is the option of creating your own maps in multiplayer and Arcade mode. This is great when you want to unwind and explore the capabilities of the game. Overall, great game and you should play it!

Should I Play Far Cry 6?

In their largest and most ambitious Far Cry game to date, Ubisoft made sure to include as much content as they could to provide the player with a consistently fantastic experience. The story is set in the fictional nation of Yara, which is in a constant state of rebellion and societal/economic collapse. The man behind the entire thing is called Anton Castillo, also known as El Presidente.

Fans of Breaking Bad will likely love this character because he looks exactly like Gustavo Fring from the show, and he is voiced by the same actor that plays him. Just an interesting little fact there for you. The nation of Yara is divided into seven regions in various states of disarray, and your job is to manage the various regions to achieve your goals.

To do this, you have to do everything we’ve been doing since Far Cry came out: explore the open world, arm yourself to the teeth, and cause as much carnage as you can! As you play through the game and improve your Rank, certain areas will be more dangerous and populated, to reflect. Aside from that, there are many new mechanics and concepts that you are sure to love as soon as you get into the game.

How Are They Connected?

They are not. Each Far Cry game concerns itself with a completely new story and none of them are connected with the exception of some smaller characters. You can jump into any Far Cry game without losing anything from the rest of them.
