The latest entry in Ubisoft’s open-world FPS series has finally arrived. Far Cry 6 sees players heading to Yara to take down the corrupt regime of Anton Castillo, voiced and acted by Giancarlo Esposito. If you’ve been looking at gameplay online, you may have noticed that there’s a Far Cry 6 third person mode. Here’s everything you need to know about this new view for the series.
Far Cry 6 3rd Person View Explained
We’ve got both some good and bad news to share here. It’s true, Far Cry 6 does have a third-person view. However, you’re not given to control between first and third-person views freely whenever you wish. The game decides when you’ll play in first-person, and when it’ll switch to third-person.
Specifically, you’ll only be able to play in Far Cry 6’s third-person view when you’re exploring one of the three Guerrilla Base Camps. There’s one of these located in each of the game’s main regions of Yara, and it’s where you can build new facilities, spawn vehicles and where you’ll pick up most of your missions.
Outside of these base camps, you’ll be stuck playing in first-person view. There’s no option to toggle between the two perspectives in general gameplay, either.
While this may come as disappointing news to some, in our opinion, it would be rather jarring trying to engage in the explosive combat in a third-person perspective. Being able to aim down sights and stealthily move around the world is far easier than third-person and makes for a more immersive experience.
That’s everything you need to know regarding the Far Cry 6 third-person viewing perspective. For more tips, tricks and guides, head over to our wiki, or see more of our coverage on the game below.
