What’s on the Far Cry Timeline?

This timeline only includes the Far Cry games, and the few other pieces of media that are part of the Far Cry story. So far, that makes for a small timeline. However, there is a theory that the Far Cry games are part of a larger universe. Check out the Ubisoft Universe timeline for more on that. The story of Far Cry varies from game to game, though almost all of them are open-world games. There have been some spin-offs, but some have been repacked and repurposed. We include those collections on this timeline.

Where to Start?

The Far Cry games all stand alone, so there’s no designated place to start. You can start at the very beginning with the original Far Cry, or you can start at the chronological beginning with Far Cry Primal. Far Cry 4 is also a good place to start, since it’s the first game on current-gen consoles.

As always, if you liked this timeline, be sure to check out some of our others. And if you see something here that needs adding, deleting, or changing, be sure to let us know.
