by Peter Jason | Dec 16, 2019
While New Dawn might feel too familiar to Far Cry 5 players, the addition of expeditions and RPG progression adds enough new features to make this a worthwhile standalone game in the Far Cry franchise.
At the time of this post Far Cry: New Dawn had a metascore of 75 on Metacritic. Let's take a look at some of the more prominent reviews.
Far Cry New Dawn takes players on an interesting journey to tell the story of what happened after the cliffhanger events of Far Cry 5. It mixes and matches franchise staples with new RPG mechanics and gameplay ideas to offer something familiar, but fresh.
Contrary to the popular belief in the video game industry, more isn't always better, and Far Cry New Dawn is a great example of this. Its smaller scope compared to the regular Far Cry games improves the storytelling and the gameplay.
If you love Far Cry then there is no reason for you not to want to involve yourself with Far Cry New Dawn, as it does everything you would expect and a little bit more.
The game delivers fast and fluid open-world gameplay from start to finish, offering plenty of replayability with tiered outpost raids and expeditions.
