Far Cry New Dawn gameplay details emerge
In a tweet that emerged on Monday, Ubisoft revealed the details of some new Far Cry New Dawn gameplay. The Tweet consisted of a video with a Q&A which surrounded the question of “What game mechanics changed over Far Cry 5?”.
Jean-Sebastian Decant, Ubisoft’s creative Director used the video to discuss three topics which included the outpost escalation system, how weapon crafting works along with discussions surrounding the home base.

Decant states “So you’ll be able to craft guns that have ranks, and these ranks they will be useful to fight against enemies that also have ranks.” This tells us that the Far Cry New Dawn gameplay is set to have a weapon levelling up system which will in turn see enemies of higher ranks coincide as weapons are improved.
He also said that “We have the brand-new Prosperity home base in which you will be able to rally your characters and invest in order to get better upgrades,”. The details surrounding the home base may not be anything new but it seems like it’ll be used as a one-stop-shop with various means of gaining new and improved upgrades, along with gathering a variety of characters.
“We have what we call the escalation system for the outposts,”Decant also states “Now with an outpost, you can take it and take the resources that are in it, but you can also decide to squeeze it, and if you squeeze it, you’re going to abandon it. And now that it’s vacant, the enemy is going to come back, put more resources in it, and also more defence, and create a new challenge.” The new escalation system was previously revealed by Ubisoft with the above statement further displaying how players will need to decide between the ”squeeze” or occupy approach throughout the game.
We may see further Far Cry New Dawn gameplay, and we’ll update as this unfolds. The game is set to release on February 15th for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
