Lovin Games Weekly – The new Far Cry game is out this week

Rory Cashin

One of the biggest, most-anticipated sequels of the year finally arrives!

Can you feel it?

This is it.

The beginning of all of the big releases making their way to the stores, between now and Christmas, filling out our wish lists.

Starting with…


Far Cry 6

Remember the way the Assassin Creed games were starting to feel a bit stale, so Ubisoft put a firecracker up their butt and – without actually overhauling the entire thing – we did feel that Odyssey and Valhalla had some vigour upon their arrival? That is kind of the same deal with Far Cry 6, which fixes a lot of the issues we might have had with the some of the series entires recently – a lot of busy work, same’y and repetitive missions, been-there-seen-that sandboxes – while also dialling up the actual FUN you’ll have while playing it.

Also, the movie’s villain – played by Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian star Giancarlo Esposito – can now rank himself highly as one of the best video game antagonists. Ever.

Far Cry 6 is available on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Luna and Stadia right now.

Mortal Kombat 11

Initially released in 2019, the eleventh (kind of) entry in the Mortal Kombat universe remains one of the very best fighting games out there, now overflowing with dozens of characters, all each with their own unique set of fighting movies and… yes… FATALITIES.

Also, in and around the single player mode (because obviously we don’t need to sell you on the fun aspects of the multiplayer bit), there is actually a full length movie at play! Plenty of bang for your buck!

Mortal Kombat 11 is reduced on the PS Store from €49.99 to €17.49 until October 13th.
