Far Cry New Dawn is the direct sequel to Far Cry 5, and continues the story after one of the endings. If you choose to continue pursuing Joseph Seed — also known as The Prophet — the world is turned upside down and there's a new threat. However, pockets of survivors still cling to existence around the country, but your journey again leads you to Hope County, Montana. This time around, you're part of a group trying to rebuild the country with the help of an army engineer.
Considering that Fallout 76 has been criticized for being broken and visually-dated at launch, Far Cry New Dawn seems like it might hit the high notes. However, with Rage 2 around the corner, it seems like the post-apocalyptic space is going to be overcrowded in the near future, especially because both game look so similar.
Far Cry New Dawn offers a grounded story and focuses on the desperation of the people who survived. They have to form uneasy alliances in order to counter a new threat.
In our review, we said, "Despite its positive attributes, Far Cry New Dawn feels more like the endgame to Far Cry 5. It's almost like an epilogue that should've been included with the base game, maybe as part of the season pass. In order to properly conclude the story started in Far Cry 5, you have to play Far Cry New Dawn. It's definitely not a standalone experience, because you have to know the history of characters."
