You'll be able to explore these smaller areas and scout for supplies and resources.

The narrator in the New Dawn teaser talks about how flames and death "rolled through [their] valley", which sounds a lot like nuclear bombs.

However, while the announcement trailer gave a decent look into the open-world action game, it didn't showcase really any raw gameplay. We met Horatio the Boar and the adorable Timber the Akita, who looks especially cute sat beside you in a sidecar as you ride between missions.

A cryptic teaser released ahead of the ceremony hinted at a direct follow-up to the Far Cry 5 story, which is a drastic departure for the series as all previous games were standalones.

But it isn't just flowers that are populating the revitalised Hope County: a ragtag gang wearing Motocross armour called the Highwaymen have entered the scene, screeching to the fill the void left by the Peggies.

With Joseph Seed's Doomsday cult finally getting what they wished for, they're naturally nowhere to be seen in New Dawn. It's up to you, the player, to push back against these new foes and help the survivors.

You'll have a home base called prosperity that you'll need to rebuild.

There are two main antagonists in Far Cry New Dawn - siblings Mickey and Lou, the twin daughters of their father and Highwaymen founder. Naturally, there are some major spoilers for Far Cry 5's ending ahead, but if you're anxious about ruining it, know that the ending isn't necessarily something you'd want to experience first-hand.

What's New in "New Dawn"?

Considering that we've seen Far Cry 4 in November 2014, Far Cry Primal in February 2016, and Far Cry 5 in March 2018. If you played it in single-player, however, you were left to muddle through a confused story about U.S. separatism - whether Ubisoft intended for that to be the case or not.

Far Cry 5's companion system brought a welcome way to get some backup when playing in single-player.

Along with the gameplay trailer, it was also revealed that the first demo for the title will debut tomorrow, December 7, exclusively for Xbox One owners.
