Pagan Min Is Coming to Far Cry 6
The next DLC in Far Cry 6’s trilogy of villains is coming out on January 11th. This time around, players will venture into the psyche of the titular Far Cry 4 villain Pagan Min.
About half a year ago during E3, Ubisoft announced that Far Cry 6 is getting a season pass. The pass is an homage to the series’ history as it puts the player in the shoes, and the minds, of some of Far Cry’s most iconic villains. The season pass includes an original DLC for Far Cry 3’s Vaas Montenegro, Far Cry 4’s Pagan Min and Far Cry 5’s Joseph Seed. It also includes Far Cry 3’s stand-alone DLC Blood Dragon.
Each DLC has the player control its respective villain as they explore the mind of that villain. The Vaas DLC titled Vaas: Insanity came out in November of last year and shows us what we can expect with the upcoming Pagan DLC. Vaas: Insanity is integrated directly into the source material’s story. It takes place just after the final encounter between Vaas and Jason in Fary Cry 3. Vaas is trapped inside his own mind and must complete a series of tasks given to him by his sister Citra in order to escape.
The gameplay is fairly different as it has roguelike elements integrated into it. The game uses a currency system called cash that is given to the player after they complete various tasks. If the player dies, they lose all of their cash and have to start over again. The gameplay also features a trait system akin to what you’d see in an RPG. The player can also upgrade various traits that do various things like increasing Vaas’ health and abilities.
According to Ubisoft’s press release on gamepress.com, The Pagan Min DLC titled Pagan: Control will follow a similar design. “Players will embody Pagan Min, the iconic villain from Far Cry® 4, in a brand-new experience inspired by the roguelite genre taking place in the depths of the villain’s troubled psyche.”
