Antón Castillo – Far Cry 6 Narrative Director Spotlight

Reading Time: < 1 minute

What do we know about Antón Castillo? We know he is the dictator of Yara and he has a son named Diego, that will some day rule Yara. (We also known that he is voiced by Giancarlo Esposito, of Mandalorian and Better Call Saul fame.) So far, little else is known regarding the motivation behind his dictatorship. Far Cry 6 Narrative Director, Navid Khavari reveals some details about Antón and his rule over Yara.

We learn that Antón grew up in the seat of power and watched his father be executed some 50 years earlier during a revolution. Now, after a rigged election, he is charged with running Yara, and keeping a tight grasp of the island and the Yaran people.

Antón is also charged with raising his son, Diego, and make him into his vision, to maintain control over Yara. Like Joseph Seed and his story in Far Cry 5, Antón’s store in in Far Cry 6 is crafted to make the player a sympathizer at times, blurring the lines between antagonist and protagonist.

Check out the short video that @farcrygame posted earlier today giving a little more insight to the dictator and father, Antón Castillo.

Far Cry 6 is now available for pre-order and will be released on February 18th, 2021 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC.
