A Far Cry 6 pre-order is the perfect way to celebrate the game's gameplay reveal that's happened recently. It's also the most tangible way to celebrate the game's release generally, and some of us here have already put our pre-orders in to ensure we're tracking a trip to Yara at the first available opportunity ahead of the game's release date of October 7, 2021.
Far Cry 6 looks to be as bombastic as ever in Ubisoft's loud and ridiculously fun series, and the introduction of Giancarlo Esposito as the antagonist sounds excellent and such a great casting move.
Cutting right to the chase, these are the best, latest, and lowest Far Cry 6 pre-order prices, wherever you may be.
First things first, though - the game has no release date yet. There was chat about it being this spring (May 26, allegedly) when the Microsoft store temporarily attached a date to the game's pages. But in truth, we don't really know. However, that's not to say a Far Cry 6 pre-order isn't a good thing; we still know plenty about the upcoming game, not to mention what you can bag with each edition.
On the subject of the release date, we think we can look forward to it coming through the mail this year. There was a delay to development recently and a Ubisoft financial call revealed that the new launch would take place at some point in Ubisoft's next financial year (e.g. somewhere between April 2021 and March 2022), but if we had to bet, we'd say signs look good for it arriving sooner rather than later.
No matter when it lands, it's definitely something to look forward to. Like a couple of recent entries in the series, choices seem to be woven throughout Far Cry 6 already. Indeed, Esposito revealed that multiple endings have been rehearsed and filmed for the game. Also, being in a position to fully embrace and utilize the power of next-gen consoles means that a Far Cry 6 pre-order is unlikely to disappoint in being one of the best early-generation games that we can enjoy on our new machines this year (hopefully). If you've been able to buy a PS5 or buy an Xbox Series X thus far, that is - these pages will help a little if not.
Otherwise, let's begin unpacking what kind of goodies and benefits you can get from placing a Far Cry 6 pre-order.
The best Far Cry 6 pre-order prices and deals
This is a major Ubisoft release, so we've got the usual suspects in terms of 'grades' of edition available to pre-order. The publisher is nothing if not consistent.
Anyway, whatever version you choose, you get the following pre-order bonuses:
- The Libertad Pack. This consists of a "Libertad Outfit" for your loyal dog Chorizo and the state-of-the-art “Discos Locos”, a weaponized disc launcher.
- A free upgrade to next-gen console versions if you buy a PS4 or Xbox One copy of the game.
Pre-order Far Cry 6 - standard edition
The standard edition of Far Cry 6 is the most straightforward version to get. Pre-order Far Cry 6 standard edition and get the game itself, not to mention the pre-order bonuses outlined above. Boom.

Getting the most out of Far Cry 6
There is no doubt that the very best way to play Far Cry 6 is going to be with an enhanced gaming setup, one that's as optimized as is possible for you to obtain. This means, at the very least, eyeing up one of the best PS4 Pro deals or the best Xbox One X deals (if you can find any nowadays) to ensure you have the top console model of your choice. While we don't know the PS5 bundles or Xbox Series X bundles that next-gen prices are going to create, it's best to go for the current top machine, given the game is being made for next-gen consoles.
Alternatively, consider one of the best PC gaming machines in the shape of the best gaming PCs or best gaming laptops to make sure you get the most out of the detail, textures, and fidelity of modern games. You'll also need to see the details of the world perfectly too with one of the best gaming monitors or best gaming TVs.
And finally, ensure you have a gaming sound system to immerse yourself in Far Cry 6's world in your living or gaming room, or one of the best PS4 headsets, best Xbox headsets, or one of the best PC headsets for gaming.
It's a fair bit of kit to potentially consider but if you get any combination of these great quality items, your experience of the game will only be nearer the best it can be.
