First impressions of Cyberpunk 2077 have started rolling in after a number of journalists spent time with a demo of the upcoming CD Projekt game. However only IGN’s preview seems to have unearthed a very important feature of the game: that you can, in fact, pet the cat.
The preview unfortunately didn’t go into too much detail on whether there is just a single, pettable cat to be found, or whether multiple are dispersed throughout the game, but it’s still a big improvement on The Witcher 3’s disappointingly Witcher-averse cats. Whether dogs are present or pettable in Cyberpunk 2077 still has yet to be seen.
While “can you pet the dog?” has long been an important question in video game criticism, inspired by the Twitter account of the same name, cats are only just starting to get the same kind of recognition in virtual petting.
Far Cry 6 Pre-Order Guide: Release Date, Bonuses, Editions, And More
While we won’t get a new Far Cry game this year, we won’t have to wait too long into next year to get our hands on Far Cry 6. Ubisoft has announced that Far Cry 6 will release on February 18, 2021 on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia (that’s a lot of platforms, we know). In typical Ubisoft fashion, numerous editions will be available to purchase, and pre-order listings are already starting to pop up. If you already know you’re down to jump into another zany open-world first-person shooter, you can snag some cool bonuses with your pre-order, too.
Far Cry 6 is set in the present day in the fictional country of Yara, a tropical paradise that has been “frozen in time,” largely due to the country’s tyrannical leader Anton Castillo (played by Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito). As the hero of the story, you’ll step into the shoes of Dani Rojas, who helps form a guerilla faction to oust Castillo from power.
While next-gen consoles will already be out by the time Far Cry 6 releases, it’s worth noting that you’ll be able to buy one copy of Far Cry 6 to play on PS4/PS5 and Xbox One/Series X. So if you aren’t planning on upgrading to a next-gen console right away, you’ll still be able to enjoy Far Cry 6 on PS5 and Xbox Series X whenever you do decide to upgrade.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Has Fishing, And It’s Tied To An Important New Part Of The Game
As part of Ubisoft Forward, the developer shared a long list of new details about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla regarding the combat, how you can recruit cats, and that you’ll be able to switch between male and female Eivor at any point in the game.
Another detail confirmed during the presentation was that Valhalla will have a fishing mechanic–and it’s tied into another new system for the game. In Valhalla, your health does not automatically regenerate over time, so you will need to find ways to replenish it. One way is to catch and consume fish.
Given that Valhalla is set in 873 CE, the game does not feature actual fishing rods. So you will simply cast a line with your hand and try to catch a fish that way. Once you have a fish on the line, you’ll need to mash the A button to bring it in. You must control the direction of the fish and also the tension of your line to be able to successfully land the fish.
Far Cry 6 Dev Explains The New Setting Of Yara, And How Political Revolution Is Core To The Story
In the reveal trailer for Far Cry 6, the main antagonist, Yara president Anton Castillo, explains the chaotic nature of power in governing society to his teenage son Diego. His son is poised to take over when the time comes, but for now, Anton wants his son to understand his point of view. Using a hand grenade as a metaphor, the elder Castillo states that, “Our country is like this grenade, except it has two basic parts: the people, and you–and you must clutch them nice and tight. Or we all go boom.”
Far Cry 6 is a game about politics and how radically different views inevitably lead to conflict. Set during an uprising in the country of Yara, which takes stylistic and historical inspiration from the island of Cuba, you’ll join the rebel force made up of citizens to overthrow Anton Castillo and his regime. His ultimate goal is to bring the country out of its period of stagnation and into a supposed new age of prosperity, even if it means oppressing and enslaving the country’s citizens to do it. Since Far Cry 3, the franchise has enjoyed putting its villains front and center, giving them plenty of time to explain their philosophies in elaborate detail. They’re larger than life figures whose presence is evident throughout the jungles, caves, and forests in the open-world settings–and Far Cry 6 is no different.
The new game coming from Ubisoft Toronto leans more heavily into the dynamic of revolution, and how Yara’s citizens rise up to free themselves instead of waiting for an outside savior to do it for them. Far Cry 6’s story is about combating fascism, and you are playing as a member of the anti-fascist movement. Speaking with Far Cry 6 narrative director Navid Khavari, he explained the backbone of Far Cry 6’s plot, and how the game’s central character, Dani Rojas, fits in.
