You can check out the debut trailer for the game, below. True to Far Cry form, Mickey and Lou will grace New Dawn's cover upon release, though they are far from the only new faces.

Ubisoft has pulled off this strategy earlier with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Far Cry Primal, so a spin-off game like New Dawn isn't exactly unexpected.

It wasn't just Montana where the bombs fell; Far Cry 5's ending was the beginning of a global nuclear apocalypse. The game releases in a little over two months, so I'm sure Ubisoft will drop some in-game footage soon enough.

You can see 15 minutes of gameplay from the game below - and it looks as stylish as you'd expect from a DMC title, courtesy of Arrekz. This "quick-elimination mode" will come as a fee update shortly after launch, and has players take on hordes of enemies and bosses until they reach an end goal. Instead, you'll have a new pet dog. Weapons are tailored on the workbench at home base. Based on the freakish - but very real - phenomenon of "super bloom".

The setting, which is reminiscent of Rage 2's color scheme, also looks to be taking inspiration from other post-apocalyptic games like Fallout. While I am fond of Far Cry's brand of systemic carnage, I tend to find it most interesting when it goes experimental. We'll be getting Nana, a sniper-wielding senior citizen, and a particularly aggressive boar called Horatio to tag along with us. Whether we will see more animal companions joining us hasn't been confirmed yet.

As with Far Cry 5, the best stories in New Dawn will be written by yourself and a friend. First, there's the Escalation system, which adds a juicy new dimension to one of the game's strongest activities - securing outposts. If you take the second option, prepare for the bandits to set up shop again, but this time with better defences.
