In Pagan: Control, Far Cry 6’s latest DLC, 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. 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.
Last year, the game’s first DLC, Vaas: Insanity, was released. A major theme of the Season Pass DLCs is letting the player take control of the series’ major villains, with the season culminating in Joseph: Collapse, starring the titular antagonist of Far Cry 5. Joseph: Collapse is releasing sometime later this year.
Check out our review of Far Cry 6 here, where our own AJ wrote, “While Far Cry 6 is not the huge revamp many have been asking for, it is a great time nonetheless. The extensive weapon customization, and new additions like the Supremo weapons and Amigos add even more flexibility to the tried and true formula. The story starts off excellent, and remains solid throughout, although it does start to overstay its welcome towards the latter half of the game. There’s a huge cast of characters, highlighted by yet another iconic Far Cry villain in Anton Castillo. It’s not going to win over any Far Cry naysayers, but fans of the series should thoroughly enjoy what Ubisoft have done here. It is, in my opinion, the best Far Cry title since 2012’s Far Cry 3.”
Once the title update for the DLC is out, we’ll be sure to let our readers know. If Ubisoft follows the usual trend for patches, expect the title update to drop on January 10.
