Can You Play FC6 in Third Person Mode?

The answer to this question is yes. And not really. It’s a bit complicated. Third-person is only available while you are in camp. As soon as you enter the Guerilla camp, the perspective will automatically change to third-person, and you won’t be able to shift it back to first-person again. This is done for the sake of immersion and to give the entire game a more cinematic feel. Far Cry 6 is heavily centered on the protagonist, Dani Rojas, and you need to be able to see him or her in their entirety from time to time to better emphasize with them and their fight. This also allows you to see all the pieces of gear and customization options you have applied to Dani. When you leave the camp, you will no longer be able to play in third person mode.

Apart from the camp, you will also be able to see Dani, your protagonist avatar, in third-person during cutscenes. Again, this is done so that Dani will has more personality than most other previous Far Cry main characters. To summarize – at the time of writing, you won’t have the option of playing most of the game while in third-person. The idea of getting into firefights while in third person mode is an intriguing one, and Ubisoft, or some ambitious modder, could end up adding a third-person option in a subsequent patch update or mod. If that does end up happening, we will, of course, let you know.
