Far Cry 6 Announces Free Weekend, Stranger Things Crossover

Far Cry 6 is hosting a free weekend, running March 24-27, on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC through the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. This game and its DLCs are also included in a Ubisoft+ subscription on PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna.

New players can pre-load Far Cry 6 on March 22 at 12 PM PT on PC and PlayStation platforms, and will have access to the full game when the free weekend begins, including the upcoming Stranger Things crossover mission inspired by the Netflix series, and all free downloadable content published to date – all playable in co-op. Those who want to continue exploring the island of Yara in Far Cry 6 after the free weekend can keep their progress and purchase the game and its Season Pass at big discounts:

  • Ubisoft Store: From now until the end of March, get up to 50% off as part of the Spring Sale.

  • Xbox: As part of Xbox’s Deal of the Week, from March 24-28 players can get 50% off all editions of the game, as well as 35% off the Season Pass.

  • PlayStation: From March 23-30, players can get 50% off the Standard and Gold editions of Far Cry 6, and 35% off the Season Pass, as part of PlayStation Store’s Deal of the Week.

  • Epic Games Store: As part of the Epic Spring Sale, players can get 50% off the Standard, Gold, Deluxe, and Ultimate editions of the game, and 35% off the Season Pass. The Epic Games Store is also offering 35% off the Vaas: Insanity DLC, and 25% off the Pagan: Control DLC.

  • Stadia: From March 24-31: 50 percent off the Standard, Gold and Ultimate Editions of the game, and 35 percent off of the Season Pass. From now until March 31: 40 percent off of the Deluxe Edition.

To coincide with the free weekend, Ubisoft announced The Vanishing, a new free Stranger Things crossover mission, available March 24 for all Far Cry 6 players. The Vanishing will bring a stealth-horror-survival gameplay experience to Far Cry players for the first time with mysterious characters and new lore. In The Vanishing, players will enter a twisted version of Yara inspired by the Upside-Down, where Dani discovers that Yarans are disappearing and no one is safe – not even Chorizo. Players will be able to explore Stranger Things-inspired locations, such as a hidden bunker and an abandoned laboratory. Dani’s mission – with new skins for a flamethrower and shotgun – is to search for Chorizo and find out what happened to the abducted Yarans.
