For the first time in the Far Cry series, there will be segments where the game breaks away from a first-person perspective.
Far Cry has had hallucinations, torture, sex and more in first-person view, so why the change? Narrative director Navid Khavari discussed it in an interview with Gamespot.
“In cinematics, [third person] is something the team tried early on, and it felt surprisingly seamless. It instantly felt like there was more of a connection to Dani’s journey in the world, more of a connection to this epic story in Yara.”
Which also means you will get to see whatever horrible outfit and hair choices you made, right there in some cinematic around… normal looking NPCs.
“Players will also be able to see their character customizations in these highly-realized story beats. In Guerrilla Camps, this is also an opportunity for players to be able to see their fully customized character, everything from their backpack to their clothes.”
We will see more at Ubisoft Forward on June 12 at 9 pm.
