Ubisoft‘s chaotic open-world first-person shooter, Far Cry 6, has finally hit store shelves and digital storefronts. And while most folks will be busy getting their shoot-’em-up fix on the fictional Caribbean island of Yara, some of you may be playing on Sony or Microsoft’s next-gen systems. As a result, you may be wondering if Far Cry 6 is enhanced on PS5 or Xbox Series X.
Well, fear not, as we have done the legwork and have the answer for you. So, without further ado, let’s get into it, shall we?
Is Far Cry 6 Enhanced for PS5 or Xbox Series X? Answered
Thankfully, the answer is: Yes, Far Cry 6 is indeed enhanced for both PS5 and Xbox Series X. Those playing on next-gen consoles can look forward to a 4K resolution boost and improved framerates. However, you’ll need to download an additional HD Texture Pack, which weighs in at 26.05 GB on PS5.
Unfortunately, Ubisoft has gone on record to confirm that ray tracing in Far Cry 6 will only be a PC-exclusive feature. In other words, there will likely be no ray tracing support on consoles for the title.
Thankfully, the upgrades to the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions will be free of charge. That said, the upgrade will only apply to the same format of the game. For example, owners of the PS4 physical version will still need to put their PS4 disc into a PS5 to play the next-gen version of the game. So, if you’re planning on playing Far Cry 6 on PS5, don’t go trading in your PS4 disc any time soon!
But that’s about everything you need to know about whether Far Cry 6 is enhanced for PS5 or Xbox Series X.
