Far Cry 6 is set to introduce one surprising feature that we have not seen before in the popular shooter franchise. The game will switch to the third-person perspective in certain cases to help players connect to the main protagonist.

The sixth major instalment in Ubisoft's popular shooter franchise Far Cry is set to introduce plenty of big improvements and additions and one of these new features will be switching to a third-person perspective during some cinematics but also gameplay moments.

This has been confirmed by the game's narrative director Navid Khavari, who talked to Gamespot, explaining that there a few reasons for this decision. 

The team wants to better highlight Dani as a character and allow players to connect to the main protagonist. . "It instantly felt like there was more of a connection to Dani's journey in the world, more of a connection to this epic story in Yara," Kahvari explained.

He added that players will be able to see their character customisations during story cinematics and Guerrilla Camps.

"Players will also be able to see their character customizations in these highly-realized story beats. In Guerrilla Camps, this is also an opportunity for players to be able to see their fully customized character, everything from their backpack to their clothes," he said.

Finally, the game will switch from first-person to third-person perspective when you use a Supremo backpack, which is that crazy mortar/rocket launcher thing that we got to see in the recent gameplay trailer.

"In the Supremo backpack moments during gameplay, the third-person transition is intended so players can see all of the backpack's effects, and better feel its impact in action," he concludes.
