The concept of a Far Cry 6 third-person mode (or 3rd person for the numerically challenged) has been floating about since footage of Dani experimenting with an over shoulder third-person camera mode surfaced online. Far Cry has historically used first-person camera perspectives, but does Far Cry 6 offers a third-person option that players can switch to, whether on foot or in vehicles?
Below, we’ll go through camera options, visibility, and out-of-body experiences.
What is Far Cry 6 third-person mode?
Despite the fact that the camera will switch to third-person at several moments throughout the game, there is no Far Cry 6 third-person option.
However, the player has little influence over when this occurs; it is linked to specific events and locales. In some instances, gamers will specifically encounter a third-person perspective:
- During cutscenes
- When exploring larger Guerrilla Camps
- While triggering the main ability of Supremos
This has caused some confusion because some available footage has displayed these third-person moments without the larger context of how infrequent they are. Aside from that, gamers will be forced to play Far Cry 6 in the first person for the overwhelming bulk of the game.
Third person mode in wingsuit flight, vehicles and more
The third-person mode would be especially better during times in the game when players are managing heavier vehicles, riding horses, or flying over the sky in wingsuits. Despite the difficulty that many players experience navigating highways in Far Cry 6, there is no third person mode available here as well.
Future upgrades may address this, and we’ll update this page accordingly, but for the time being, players are limited to staring out the filthy windscreen and hope they don’t run over anything too dangerous. Or, in the case of the wingsuit, colliding with it from above.
