As part of the free weekend, Ubisoft has also announced “The Vanishing”, a new free Stranger Things crossover mission that is available March 24 for all Far Cry 6 players. The mission overview can be seen below:

The Vanishing will bring a stealth-horror-survival gameplay experience to Far Cry players for the first time with mysterious characters and new lore. In The Vanishing, players will enter a twisted version of Yara inspired by the Upside-Down, where Dani discovers that Yarans are disappearing and no one is safe – not even Chorizo. Players will be able to explore 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.

Father. Gamer. Editor in Chief. Not a Trophy or Achievement hunter but plays games by the boatload! Would love to see a Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger, Lufia, and/or Breath of Fire 2 remake done in his lifetime.
