Funforge, a board game manufacturer, has launched a Far Cry tabletop game. The game was unveiled only weeks before the release of the new Far Cry video game, which will be released in October for consoles and PC. Far Cry 6 will be the most ambitious game in the franchise yet, however it may or may not be linked to the recently revealed tabletop game.
More and more video games are being adapted into board games, with anything from easy family playtime to more in-depth campaigns, particularly for video game aficionados. A Super Mario edition of the family board game The Game of Life was revealed earlier this year, giving the Hasbro classic a Mushroom Kingdom touch.
Meanwhile, World of Warcraft fans are anticipating the arrival of a more specialized board game experience, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, from the Pandemic System, later this year.
Funforge announced their formal collaboration with Ubisoft for the release of Far Cry Beyond on Twitter (via ComicBook). Unfortunately, the publisher hasn’t revealed any specifics about the board game’s gameplay, plot, or aesthetic.
While there are little specifics, hashtags in the post suggest that it will be a tabletop board game, and a logo picture confirms that it will be released in 2022. Fans are encouraged to follow Funforge on social media for more information on the forthcoming Far Cry game.
The Far Cry series from Ubisoft is recognized for providing stand-alone experiences and diverse tales with each release. The numbered games in the series usually focus on despotic dictators in gorgeous imaginary locations, such as Far Cry 3’s Vaas, who is one of the franchise’s most famous antagonists.
Funforge and Ubisoft are proud to announce their partnership on Far Cry Beyond!

However, spin-off games in the franchise, such as Far Cry Primal and Far Cry: Blood Dragon, tend to take more fanciful approaches to their environments, allowing the tabletop version free to practically any game. The name “Beyond” implies that the board game would feature numerous themes and characters from the video games, implying that it won’t be centered on Far Cry 6, the next installment in the series.
The Far Cry board game may be released in 2022, but no firm date has been set. Thankfully, the next numbered game in the series is on its way to keep fans occupied until Funforge releases more information.
Far Cry 6 will transport players to the fictional island of Yara, where they will take on the role of guerrilla soldier Dani Rojas on a mission to free the island from tyrant Anton Castillo’s tyranny. When Far Cry 6 launches on October 7th, it will be the first Far Cry on next-gen platforms so that gamers can anticipate stunning graphics and new features.
