Ubisoft has announced a new edition of its Far Cry series. Far Cry New Dawn plays 17 years after the end of its predecessor Far Cry 5 and continues the story.

In the nuclear weapon-devastated Hope County in the US state of Montana there's a post-apocalyptic new world order. The survivors face marauding bands and have to fight for their lives.

The main opponents in this version are two twin sisters but Joseph Seed, known from Far Cry 5, also makes an appearance in the teaser trailer.

The heart of the game is a base where players can build weapons, equipment or vehicles and train their two- and four-legged helpers. The first glimpses at the game in the trailer show a world of mutant bison and huge wild boars, colourful settlements and improvised weapons.

The game doesn't just take place in Hope County anymore as players can make expeditions to well-known US locations in search of remaining resources.

Far Cry New Dawn is scheduled for release on Feb 15 next year. – dpa
