Ever since the third Far Cry game wowed audiences, larger-than-life villains have been a staple of the series. This year’s entry will see the famed actor Giancarlo Esposito portraying the dictator of Yara known as Anton Castillo. In some marketing efforts, Ubisoft has released a series of videos with Esposito, showcasing more of Far Cry 6 and the titular villain.

We are now just 2 weeks away from the launch of Far Cry 6, so naturally Ubisoft is gearing up their marketing. The series of videos with Esposito covers some very basic (and totally not fake) gameplay tips and tricks, an introduction to the character of Castillo, a deconstruction of the flamethrower weapon, and answering some fan mail including theories about Far Cry 3's iconic villain Vaas. Check them out below!

What do you think? Are you excited for Far Cry 6? How do you feel about this entry’s villains? Who has been your favorite villain so far? Let us know!

I'm for sure the minority here but I absolutely loved every entry in the series from inception.


FCV was so unbelievably fun for myself and the friends that played too. The story was fantastic for a doomsday religious cult, and the main bosses were interesting in the own right.


One thing I do with that was changed was that it only took 3 "missions" to reach the final fight with each regions respected leader, super short. But it was still fantastic. This entry I am expecting to be blown away, cannot wait!

Don’t get why people like Vaas so much, he’s not even the main antagonist and you just see him a couple of times before killing him. As for his character he seems like the typical insane criminal that has been manipulated into working for a much smarter criminal.


Pagan Min is more complex and difficult to judge, since you can’t help agreeing with him a bit, and even your “allies” in that game are villains to a certain degree.


Also, no love for the Jackal or Dr Krieger?

Absolutely agree with you there, Vaas wasn't that wild, but he was a good boss even if short lived. I liked the Jackals line, Krieger would probably be before many people's time here lmao. FC4 was awesome for me, and Primal set in the same map

Spoilers for far cry 4 ahead.... so i just really like pagan min because as you said , you can complete the game by just staying at the table for a few minutes, i was shocked because i left the game running for a bit and when i came back there was the final cutscene and i thought it wasa bug or something xD

For me, personally, it was Michael Mando's performance as Vaas and how he belittled the protagonist for being a crummy rich kid who's playing a vacation hero - which is true. And yes, Vaas was an underling, but that's also what made it an interesting dynamic, because you don't instantly find out who's pulling the strings, where in the later titles - the final bosses are front and center from the very start, there's barely any mystery left.


I guess that resonated with me more, than being randomly dragged into Kyrat's rebellion over some bloodline that Ajay wasn't even aware of (plus the constant bickering between the rebels on what route to take gets old fast). FC5's bosses I also like, but it also has to do with the technical advancements, since the dream/drug/etc cutscenes in FC5 are particularly well-made, but then again - yeah, it's a typical cult, what more is there to say, not overly unique (unless you've never seen a cult in action, then it may leave more of an impression), so the big card here is Bliss, without which the whole thing would be far less interesting to witness.


Ubisoft seemed to think that Mando did an amazing job too, otherwise Vaas as we know him would not have happened.
