Does Far Cry 6 have New Game Plus in PS4 & PS5? Post-Completion Guide

Ubisoft’s newest installment of the destructive Far Cry franchise possesses high-intensity action, explosive weaponry, and, quite unsurprisingly, faithful animal compadres. 

Below the persistent gunfire lies the story about the struggles of a country trying to break free from the deadly shackles of a malicious tyrant. Once you assist in the liberation of Yara and snatch the reins of power from Anton Castillo, you technically beat the main story of Far Cry 6. 

After completing Far Cry 6, you may wonder whether there’s anything else you can do in the game. Since you can play the game in three different modes, namely the Story Mode, Action Mode, and Guerrilla Mode, there’s replayability in the game. But, it’s limited because players lose all their progress and collected items while switching difficulty. 

This is where the New Game Plus mode comes into play, but unfortunately, Far Cry 6 didn’t have the specific mode at launch.

However, Title Update 6, which came out on 29th November 2022, introduced the highly-requested New Game Plus mode to Far Cry 6. This mode allows players to replay the game’s entire campaign with most of their equipment. Additionally, the download size for the title update that’ll add the NG+ mode Far Cry 6 is 23 GB for PS4 and 26.6 GB for PS5.

Even though the NG+ mode has come more than a year after the game’s release, it provides players massive opportunities. It makes enemies increasingly tough to defeat, but the enhanced rewards go a long way when players aim for 100% completion in Far Cry 6. 

Here’s more about the NG+ mode in Far Cry 6 and its post-game content.

1. Does Far Cry 6 have post-game content?

Fortunately, Far Cry 6 does have post-game content. Whether you beat the game by opting for the secret ending or go all the way to the final ending by completing the main campaign, you can go back after the credits roll and keep playing Far Cry 6. Also, you can continue finishing side missions and searching collectibles.  

To achieve the secret ending, you must complete the following missions after the initial escape and arrival on the island. 

  • Juan of a Kind
  • Du or Die
  • Fire and Fury
  • Fuel the Revolution
  • Libertad Rising

Once you launch an attack on the two ships in the last mission of the above list, Clara will guide you to reconvene with Juan, join the revolution, and offer you a boat. All you need to do is jump onto the boat and drive off. Then, keep driving until Dani exclaims, “Not my fight,” and the screen turns dark. 

Next, the story cuts to “three months later,” and Dani is shown sitting on a beach, listening to the radio about how President Castillo killed Clara to put an end to the revolution. The credits will roll, and you will reach the post-game of Far Cry 6. But this secret ending is simply a shortcut.

You can also reach the post-game in Far Cry 6 by finishing the whole campaign, from La Noche De La Muerte to The Battle of Esperanza. Once you hit and enter the executive elevator, a cutscene will begin. Once it ends, the credits will roll, and you will enter the post-game in Far Cry 6.

Starting a New Game in Far Cry 6

Players can start a new game in Far Cry 6 by clicking on “New Game” in the main menu and selecting a save slot. Any progress you make, including main quests, side quests, and items collected, will be saved to the same slot. 

But, if you wish to start a new game while in the middle of another run of Far Cry 6, ensure to save your progress in one of the above-mentioned slots by using the auto-save feature. Unfortunately, Far Cry 6 doesn’t have a manual-save feature.

It’s noteworthy that starting a new game in Far Cry 6 allows you to play the entire game from the beginning with the same enemy difficulty level and reward return rate. Also, remember that you can only possess three saved games at a time.
