Meet Your New Friends and Foes of Far Cry New Dawn

By James Kearle, 15 days ago
After its full reveal at this year's Game Awards, the latest Far Cry stand-alone spin-off entry Far Cry New Dawn is hitting shelves in just a couple of weeks on February 15th. To get fans excited for its imminent release, Ubisoft has unveiled some new promotional material showcasing the game's main antagonists "the twins," as well as the full list of guns/fangs for hire that will help you take down Montana's toughest highwaymen.

Beginning with "Meet the Twins," we see exclusive insight into the minds and motives of Far Cry New Dawn's villainous duo Lou (played by Leslie Miller), and Mickey (played by Cara Ricketts), whose affinity for heavy weaponry and strong sisterly bond has given them control in a time of total chaos. Just how bad are they? See for yourself in the trailer below.


In addition to showcasing its new baddies, Ubisoft have also detailed everything you can expect from your human (and not so human) AI companions accompanying you across Hope County's post-apocalyptic ruins. Further information on all eight guns/fangs for hire can be seen here.
