Far Cry: New Dawn screenshot of the player and a boar attacking enemies

If you've finished Far Cry 5 and found yourself thinking you could go for a second serving, you might be interested to hear that the spin-off game Far Cry New Dawn has now arrived for both PC and consoles. It takes place seventeen years after Far Cry 5's fairly controversial ending, and much like its predecessor, involves you running all over a giant open world in order to recruit allies and fight against hordes of easily-disposable bad guys.

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this looks like in gameplay terms, as well as how Far Cry New Dawn differentiates itself from Far Cry 5, in the recently posted launch trailer. Have a gander:

I haven't played it myself so take the following with a few grains of salt, but from what I can figure out Far Cry New Dawn is pretty much Far Cry 5 with a fresh coat of paint and a couple of new bells and whistles added to it. In other words, it's a rather solid game that will likely take you quite a few hours to fully finish, but just don't expect to see much in terms of innovation. 

Whether that is actually worth of a purchase or not, I'll leave for you to decide. Either way, you should head on over to Steam in order to learn a little bit more about what Far Cry New Dawn has to offer. Have fun!
