Ubisofts Far Cry 6 contains a number of fun Easter eggs hidden throughout the game, with some hints of a connection to Assassin’s Creed universe. This post in Far Cry series places players in the role of Dani Rojas, a guerrilla fighter who works with rebel forces to oust the oppressive dictator Anton Castillo. It’s a setup very similar to the past Far Cry games, and fans’ enjoyment may vary if they had expected a revolutionary change in the series. Those looking for another Far Cry experience should still find much to enjoy with Far Cry 6however, especially when looking for all the Easter eggs hidden around Yara.
Many video game developers tend to include Easter eggs in their games, referring to previous projects, other games in the industry, and forms of media outside of games. Ubisoft is no stranger to a good Easter egg, too Doctor Who’s TARDIS shows up Assassin’s Creed Origins and references to Evil hotel, Star wars and more in Watch Dogs 2. The developer also uses smart references to link their franchise, and Far Cry 6 is the latest example of Ubisoft’s supposed efforts to create an expansive “Ubi verse.”
Far Cry 6 contains lots of Easter eggs that players can discover along the way, ranging from a hazy one Jurassic Park reference to the potential appearance of a Far Cry 3 villain. The game also includes references to others Far Cry games and various Ubisoft franchises, including Assassin’s Creed series. That Assassin’s Creed Easter eggs in Far Cry 6 seems to be more than just funny nods to the series that seemingly connect the two universes of the game in interesting ways.
While exploring Pino Crest on Far Cry 6s expansive map, players should encounter a series of underground bunkers running through the area. In a particular bunker is a note showing a series of smuggled items that Castillo’s forces have moved down into the bunker, including a “Golden apple” artifact. This Assassin’s Creed Easter eggs in Far Cry 6 is a direct reference to the Apples of Eden, which were pieces of Audi technology that drove the war between the Assassins and the Templars.
Another Assassin’s Creed Easter eggs in Far Cry 6 shows up in the treasure hunt mission “Cache Money” and takes players to several bunkers within Oasis Plains airfield. Another note can be found in the area describing a handful of items to be auctioned off, including a few that are familiar to fans of Assassin’s Creed. The first item mentioned is an old spear “Once destroyed, repaired many times” which is certainly Leonida’s spear that Kassandra used Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The second item on the list is a “Pair of old, hidden blades” who has the ability to be “Extracted and withdrawn from gloves.” This Far Cry 6 Assassin’s Creed Easter eggs are a clear nod to Hidden Blades, which were the signature weapons for members of the Assassin Brotherhood.
This is not the first time that a Far Cry the game has established a connection with Assassin’s Creed series, which Far Cry 3 included Abstergo boxes all the way back in 2009. It would be interesting to see Ubisoft actually take the plunge and include something significant like usable Hidden Blades in a Far Cry games that are not necessarily out of the question when considering the series’ penchant for over-the-top weapons such as Far Cry 6s Supremos. Affiliation Far Cry 6 to Assassin’s Creed franchise opens up a number of options for the two Ubisoft bases, and it would be interesting if the developer delivers a unique crossover game in the future.
