Far Cry 6’s free weekend goes live at 11 AM PT on March 24, running through March 27 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, as well as Windows PC through the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. The game and its DLCs are also included a Ubisoft+ subscription on PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna.

New players can load the game now, and will have access to the full game, including the Stranger Things crossover mission inspired by the hit series on Netflix, and all free downloadable content published to date – all playable in co-op. Those who want to continue exploring the island of Yara in Far Cry 6 by purchasing the game after the free weekend will keep their game progression, and can enjoy discounts on the game and Season Pass:

  • Ubisoft Store: From now until the end of March, get up to 50% off as part of the Spring Sale.

  • Xbox: As part of Xbox’s Deal of the Week, from March 24-28 players can get 50% off all editions of the game, as well as 35% off the Season Pass.

To coincide with the free weekend, Ubisoft announced The Vanishing, a new, free Stranger Things crossover mission, available today for all Far Cry 6 players. The Vanishing brings a stealth-horror-survivor gameplay experience to Far Cry players for the first time with mysterious characters and new lore. In The Vanishing, players enter a twisted version of Yara inspired by the Upside-Down, and Dani discovers that Yarans are disappearing and no one is safe – not even Chorizo. Players can explore recreations of iconic Stranger Things-inspired locations, such as a hidden bunker and an abandoned laboratory. Dani’s mission – with new skins for a flamethrower and shotgun – is to search for Chorizo and find out what happened to the abducted Yarans.
