The PS5 and Xbox Series X are both powerhouses where Xbox commands a slightly better GPU while the PS5 has a great SSD hardware. But when it comes to the graphics output, both these consoles will be able to run games in 4K high definition.

“Welcome to Yara”

The game’s description reads, “Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As the dictator of Yara, Anton Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps. Their oppressive rule has ignited a revolution.”

The Far Cry 6 title is a AAA game and is expected to do brilliantly in terms of sales. But this particular news may not sit well with the PlayStation community. We’ll have to wait and see if Ubisoft change their mind about the same or stick to their decision.
