Check out the rundown on the crossover mission between Far Cry 6 and Stranger Things:

In The Vanishing, players will enter a twisted version of Yara, inspired by the Upside-Down. Dani discovers that Yarans are disappearing and no one is safe – not even Chorizo. Players will be able to explore recreations of iconic locations inspired by the “Stranger Things” series, including a hidden bunker and an abandoned laboratory.
