Not even Chorizo is safe.
The Stranger Things DLC for Far Cry 6 launches tomorrow and will take players into a twisted version of Yara as they seek to save their beloved pup Chorizo from the forces of evil.
Known as The Vanishing, players will have to work out just what on earth is going on in Yara, as an unknown force has been abducting the island’s residents, and “no one is safe”.
Ubisoft has promised this DLC will introduce a new element of survival-horror into Far Cry 6’s gameplay, with locations inspired by Netflix’s Stranger Things able to be explored. This includes an underground bunker and a rather ominous sounding abandoned lab.
As well as new locations, characters and lore, Dani will also have new skins for both a shotgun and flamethrower as part of this DLC.
The launch of The Vanishing coincides with Far Cry 6’s free weekend, which is running from 24 – 27 March on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC through the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store.
The game and its DLCs are also included with a Ubisoft+ subscription on PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna.
If players are unable to get everything they wanted to achieve done during Far Cry 6’s free weekend, the game will be discounted across various platforms for a limited time (see full details below).
