“Players will embody Pagan Min, the iconic villain from Far Cry 4, in a brand-new experience inspired by the roguelite genre taking place in the depths of the villain’s troubled psyche,” according to the game’s publisher.
“Blending intense action and storytelling, Pagan: Control will provide a unique opportunity for players to explore Pagan’s mind, learn more about his past, and face off against familiar faces as he struggles to break free from his cycle of guilt and regrets.”
Far Cry 6’s Pagan Min add-on follows last November’s release of the game’s first Season Pass DLC, Vaas: Insanity. Available separately for $14.99 / £11.99 (although the base game is required), it lets players step into the role of Far Cry 3 villain Vaas Montenegro.
And it precedes Joseph: Collapse, the third and final piece of Season Pass DLC, which will give players the chance to play as Far Cry 5 villain Joseph Seed later this year.
Ubisoft confirmed in November 2021 that the most senior creative behind the Far Cry franchise had left the company after more than 10 years.
Far Cry 7 could shake-up the series with a greater focus on online play, it has been claimed.
Ubisoft also announced today that Rainbow Six Extraction will hit Xbox Game Pass for console, PC and Cloud on its release day this month, and that Rainbow Six Siege is headed to PC Game Pass too.
Additionally, the Assassin’s Creed publisher said its Ubisoft+ subscription service is coming to Xbox consoles.
