Season Pass DLC “Vaas: Insanity” launches November 16

Title Update 2 launched last week and was our first big update for Far Cry 6. It brought new content for players for the main game and prepared the launch of the first Season Pass DLC. Additionally, this patch improved the game’s performance, added some quality-of-life changes and fixed bugs.

New Season Pass content: “Vaas: Insanity” - Available November 16

Become the villain as you step into the mind of Vaas Montenegro from Far Cry 3 and battle your inner demons in a brand new DLC unlike any experience from Far Cry before. Unveil the backstory of this iconic villain as you explore unique locations in a twisted version of the Rook Islands to collect keys and escape your own mind in this die and retry gameplay experience.

Vaas: Insanity will become available at midnight local time on November 16. With Title Update 2 installed, players will not need any additional downloads and can jump right into the action!
