Can we choose our character's gender in Far Cry 6?

After leaking a couple of days in advance, Far Cry 6 was officially announced at Ubisoft Forward. Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad fame is playing the villain, whose name is Anton Castillo. The island of Yara is under Castillo's grip, and players take on the role of Dani Rojas, a freedom fighter opposing the regime. Rojas can be male or female, so you can choose whichever you prefer.

What about other customization?

As far as we're aware, you can't customize Dani Rojas's physical appearance outside of being a man or a woman. You can change their clothing, however, with different outfits available to change up your appearance. Far Cry 6 has some third-person cutscenes while being set in an open world, so you'll get to rock a different look depending on what clothing you have equipped.

A few different DLC packs will provide clothing options at launch, with the Far Cry 6 Ultimate Edition including three different sets: the Vice pack, Jungle Expedition pack, and the Croc Hunter pack. It's important to note that Far Cry 6 Ultimate Edition is only available digitally.

Far Cry 6 was set to release on February 18, 2021, but has been delayed and is now coming at some point past April 2021. It's coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, PC and Stadia.
