Seventeen years after the nuclear explosions that devastated Hope County, life has returned to Hope County, Montana. Endless black rain and wind have given way to blue skies and blooming flora. Humans that survived the bombs now work to rebuild, forming communities across the county. However, new threats have also emerged from the rubble, and even though the fallout has long since settled, the question remains: will humanity survive the new dawn?
As in any other Far Cry game, the open world first person shooter still remains the same with features used from Far Cry 5 like, customizing vehicles and Prepper Stashes. Far Cry New Dawn also has some new features. These new features are weapon crafting and Expeditions. Outposts are back but with a new twist...you can either liberate the outpost to produce ethanol or you can scavenge it to produce more ethanol but The Highwaymen will take control of the outpost again and it will increase the outpost's difficulty and become more fortified. You can only take the outpost back three times. The hunting system is back but with mutated animals.
