Far Cry Meets Fallout in New Teaser for The Game Awards

Far Cry Meets Fallout in New Teaser for The Game Awards

It's the end of the world as we know it.

Ubisoft just released a teaser for a new Far Cry announcement set for The Game Awards tomorrow. The short live-action trailer is short on details, but there are some interesting nuggets to pick up from it. The trailer begins with what looks like the end of the world. A mushroom cloud can be seen in the background as an unknown narrator waxes an apocalyptic monologue. And then the buzzsaw crossbow appears.

From the sound of the trailer this Far Cry takes place after the events of some cataclysmic event, and if we know anything about the apocalypse it's that things are rarely any better after the world ends. Cue some probably Mad Max or The Walking Dead scenario, but with buzzsaw guns.

Ubisoft's last Far Cry title was Far Cry 5 which came out earlier this year. Set on a cult in rural Montana, Far Cry 5 dealt mostly with zealots of a strange religious cult that preached militarism. You can read our Far Cry 5 review here.

We should expect more details about this new Far Cry project when we presumably get a proper announcement at The Game Awards tomorrow night on Thursday December 6 at 5:30 pm PT/8:30 pm ET.
