Far Cry 6 Xbox Series X Limited Console To Be Given Away In Sweepstakes

Recently, Microsoft and Ubisoft teamed together to offer a chance to win a one-of-a-kind Far Cry 6 Xbox Series X console and controller. On October 7, the next installment of the Far Cry series, based on the fictitious island of Yara, will be released.

The game’s production has been hampered by a number of issues, including a postponement of its February release date and the resignation of one of Ubisoft’s key designers. Despite these setbacks, the survival shooter’s debut date has been determined and confirmed.

During a Ubisoft Forward broadcast in 2020, Ubisoft unveiled Far Cry 6, exposing fans to the game’s setting and two major protagonists, one of them is the cruel Yara President Antón Castillo. Since then, further information regarding the game’s plot has emerged, including the sad origins of Castillo in Far Cry 6 and what transformed him into the iron-fisted tyrant, he is in the game.


Players will pit protagonist Dani Rojas against Castillo, who is enforcing the same slave labor that he was forced to do as a youngster. Far Cry 6 aims to delve into thought-provoking themes like politics, morality, and the cost of development, much like its predecessors. The imaginary island country, like its predecessors, appears to live outside the bounds of law and order.

Fans may enter a Microsoft-Ubisoft contest (through GamesRadar+) to win a specially customized Far Cry 6 Xbox Series X ahead of its release. To enter on time, players must postmark their applications by September 30th and have them received by October 7th, the day Far Cry 6 is released. The rusted Xbox Series X looks like a combination of a radiator fan and a staged explosive device.

It also includes a controller with the same green and rust color scheme as the console, as well as a copy of Far Cry 6. A Samsung Neo QLED TV and other prizes are also up for grabs. The competition is only open to residents of the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, or France.

The contest follows a long tradition of game firms devising sweepstakes programs to build anticipation for upcoming releases. Microsoft held a similar contest in New Zealand and Australia in July to promote the debut of Microsoft Flight Simulator.

One fortunate player received an Xbox One S, two controllers, a high-resolution display, and an Xbox One S suitcase to hold everything. The total value of the prizes was approximately $3,200 AUD ($2,400 USD).

Whether you like Far Cry 6 or not, this Xbox Series X is certainly unusual in appearance and is guaranteed to amaze anybody who sees it. It remains to be seen whether it appears like a potentially explosive device in real life. Even the most comprehensive gaming packages, however, fall short of the ambition displayed by this system, which captures the rustic feel of the land represented in Far Cry 6.
