Far Cry 6 details leaked Friday when the game appeared on the Hong Kong PlayStation Network store before being removed.

Far Cry 6 will be released Feb. 18, 2021, and will hit both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, according to screenshots of the listing. Players who buy the game on PS4 will receive a free upgrade to PS5. Actor Giancarlo Esposito, best known for his role as Gustavo Fring in "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul," appears to play the game's villain, according to the cover image of the listing.

In Far Cry 6, players will play as Dani Rojas, a guerrilla fighter in the fictional, tropical dictatorship of Yara. The nation is currently under the control of Anton Castillo — likely Esposito's role — who is raising his son, Diego, to continue in his footsteps.

The game will feature online multiplayer for up to two players, and the listing describes Yara as the biggest Far Cry map to date. Players who pre-order will receive a Discos Locos weapon and a skin for something named Chorizo.

The leak occurs just days before Ubisoft's Forward showcase, where it's likely the developer planned to reveal the game. This is the third Ubisoft leak this week, following the reveal of a 30-minute video of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla and several Watch Dogs: Legion screenshots.
