Those who want to delve deeper into the Caribbean Island of Yara and its story will be pleased, as Far Cry 6’s upcoming DLC Vaas: Insanity is out starting November 16 — letting players take control of the iconic Far Cry 3 villain as voiced by Michael Mando!
Here’s the overview of the DLC adventure as seen in the press release.
Players will embody Vaas, the iconic villain from Far Cry® 3 played by Michael Mando (Better Call Saul), who is reprising his role in a brand-new experience inspired by the roguelite genre. Starting with nothing more than a pistol to defend themselves, players will need to find new weapons and unlock power-ups to become stronger and progress deeper into the depths of Vaas’ psyche. Blending intense action and storytelling, Vaas: Insanity will provide a unique opportunity to better understand Vaas’ past, personal demons and motivations.
Appearing in several Far Cry mediums including the web series The Far Cry Experience and the virtual reality game Far Cry VR, Vaas has become a staple of the series despite his status as a mentally unstable villain in the franchise. His appearance in Far Cry 6 was implied towards the end of the game, but now players will have a chance to experience his adventure set after the events of the main campaign. In fact a new update released for the game has rolled out which will prepare players for the DLC, and you can read all about that here.
