When does Far Cry 6 unlock on PC? Another big bad has taken control of a predictably beautiful landscape in Ubisoft's open-world series, and that means we've got weapons and vehicles to pilfer, question marks to tick off, and another unsavoury type with a lesson to learn.

In Far Cry 6 (opens in new tab) it's Antón Castillo, a despotic dictator ruling the island of Yara with an iron fist with son Diego by his side. He's also played by Giancarlo Esposito, which is fun, but you should absolutely not follow his dreadful advice (opens in new tab) if you want to escape this exotic isle with your life. Instead, follow our guides that'll emerge in the coming days.

Anyway, before you can take Castillo down with CD-player guns blaring the macarena (opens in new tab), wearable rocket launchers, and a sausage dog named Chorizo, you'll need to wait until the game goes live. Here are the Far Cry 6 unlock times.

Far Cry 6 release times

Far Cry 6 is available on PC via Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store. It won't be on Steam at launch, despite the fifth game appearing on it in 2018. On qualifying PC platforms and consoles, the Far Cry 6 unlock time is 12:01 AM on October 7 in all time zones.

As you'd expect, Far Cry 6 is not a small game. That's why, if you've pre-ordered, it's worth pre-loading the game when that option becomes available from September 5. The PC version is 60GB, so plan ahead if you want to play straight away. And it's always worth checking the game's system requirements (opens in new tab), of course.

And once you've polished off everything the game has to offer and shown Castillo what's what, more will be on the way in the Far Cry 6 roadmap (opens in new tab). Featuring Danny Trejo, Rambo, and Netflix's Stranger Things, expect the game's post-launch activities to be as wacky as ever.

He has also produced features, reviews, and even more guides for Trusted Reviews, TechRadar and Top Ten Reviews. He's been playing and picking apart PC games for over two decades, from hazy memories of what was probably a Snake knock-off on his first rig when he was seven to producing informative guides on football simulators, open-world role-playing games, and shooters today. So many by now he steadfastly refuses to convey information unless it’s in clickable online form.
