Far Cry New Dawn release date set as February 2019

Update: Amazon was wrong! We can expect Far Cry New Dawn across Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 15 February.

The game’s release date was confirmed inside its official reveal trailer, below.

“Set seventeen years after a global nuclear catastrophe, Far Cry New Dawn brings players into a wildly beautiful and radically transformed Hope County, Montana. Life has begun to emerge from the chaos, but the survivors now face a new threat – the merciless Highwaymen and their leaders The Twins, Mickey and Lou. Raised in a lawless frontier, the twin sisters and their band of scavengers live only for today and have descended upon Hope County to take all available resources,” Ubisoft said of the game. “To push back this devastating threat, players must help the Survivors grow stronger, craft a makeshift arsenal and form unexpected alliances to fight for survival in a dangerous new frontier.

“At the Homebase, players will prepare to face off against the threat of the Highwaymen. The Homebase, called Prosperity, is the stronghold of the Survivors. Here, players can craft makeshift weapons and vehicles and train their Guns for Hire – including new and familiar faces. As players progress, they can upgrade the Homebase for more powerful weapons and gear. The Homebase is also a launch-pad to Expeditions, where for the first time in Far Cry, the adventure is more than local. Set in memorable locations across the US, from wetlands to canyons and more, Expeditions drop players into unique locations where they must grab a package of valuable materials and get out, quickly.”

Original story: Far Cry New Dawn will be available tomorrow, a listing on Amazon proclaims.

Not yet announced — though we expect that soon via The Game Awards 2018 — Amazon lists the game at $39.99 USD and available from 6 December.

Those who pre-order the game will be gifted the Unicorn Trike. Series’ mainstay Hurk was also confirmed via the listing.
