The new DLC is dubbed Pagan: Control and will give players the opportunity to step into the blood-splattered shoes of the infamous villain from Far Cry 4, Pagan Min.
Interestingly, Pagan: Control is being pitched as a “roguelite” experience, which is pretty unique for the Far Cry first-person shooter series. In the new mode, players will be transported into the mind of the titular antagonist and will have to face his greatest fears and defeat them in a new psychological horror-esque adventure.
For those unaware, Far Cry 6’s latest DLC packs focus on former villains from the franchise. The first – Vaas: Insanity – featured Vaas Montenegro, the drug-dealing looney from Far Cry 3, while the next one, coming later this year – Joseph: Collapse – will center on deranged religious zealot Joseph Seed from Far Cry 5.
Our very own Chris Jecks reviewed Far Cry 6 at launch and really enjoyed his time with the game ultimately awarding it a 4/5, saying:
With a solid story, an engaging cast of characters, and a plethora of enthralling side content, Far Cry 6 is an easy recommendation for FPS fans.
