New story and gameplay details revealed for Far Cry New Dawn

Ubisoft has released two new videos for the upcoming Far Cry New Dawn, one is a story based, the other asks the question, who is the new boomer, first up though story.

Far Cry New Dawn casts you as the captain of security for a man named Thomas Rush, who travels the ruined US to help pull struggling settlements to their feet. Upon arriving in Hope County, you're ambushed by the Highwaymen, an army of live-for-today bandits led by twin sisters Mickey and Lou. The nihilistic Twins don't appreciate you busting up their post-apocalypse party, and they're a constant presence throughout Far Cry New Dawn; when they're not onscreen, you'll see their influence reflected in their colorful, anarchic followers, and they'll rage in your earpiece whenever you interfere with their plans.

Separated from your crew, your main goals are to regroup, build up your home base at Prosperity – a fortified settlement of Hope County survivors – and make life as difficult for the Highwaymen as possible. After settling in at Prosperity, you're free to wander and pursue missions however you see fit. Specialists, Guns for Hire, and Fangs for Hire are scattered across the map, and they all need your help. Follow their radio signals, and you'll encounter a mix of familiar faces – including Grace Armstrong, Sharky Boshaw, Hurk, and Nick Rye – along with new ones, like sharpshooter Nana and enterprising survivalist Bean. There are even a few lethally loyal animal friends you can recruit, including Timber, a friendly Akita; and Horatio, a hulking boar that doubles as a living battering ram.

The need to upgrade your base will become clear when you start meeting enemies who can stay upright after you empty an entire LMG clip into them. Taking a light RPG approach, Far Cry New Dawn's weapons and vehicles now have ranks, and to craft better ones, you'll need to upgrade your workbench back at Prosperity. 

A Rank II pistol can do more damage than a Rank I LMG, for example, and higher-ranked weapons tend to include cool additions like scopes and silencers that offset their ramshackle looks. With help from recruited Specialists and ethanol looted from outposts, you'll also be able to upgrade your selection of craftable vehicles, explosives, health items, intel maps, and even your maximum health.

Get ready to lose yourself in the world of Far Cry once more as Far Cry New Dawn will release on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 on February 15th
