Far Cry New Dawn is set nearly 20 years after a nuclear bomb has hit Hope County the stetting of Far Cry 5. While many were killed in the blast and aftermath some Far Cry 5 characters survived. Fans of Far Cry New Dawn believe The Judge is a surviving character from the previous game and a very important one too. In Far Cry New Dawn players can find a silent and helpful gun for hire simply named The Judge. This gun for hire never speaks unlike other gun for hires who will often talk about events happening around the player or locations they visit. The Judge will occasionally make some grunts and groans but that’s it.

Far Cry New Dawn is the newest game from Ubisoft’s popular open world FPS franchise. This time players are fighting for their lives in a post apocalyptic world. At the end of Far Cry 5 the apocalypse happened thanks to many nuclear missiles that hit the Earth and devastated the world. Only a few survivors are left alive and the world is much different now than it was several years ago. Far Cry New Dawn serves as a direct sequel to Far Cry 5 set 17 years after the apocalypse. Some humans have found sanctuary building up a nice settlement for themselves called Prosperity.

The Deputy was the player character from Far Cry 5. They were a young rookie officer who became wrapped up in all the cult killing business of the game. Along the way The Deputy helped the folks of Hope County fight and defeat Joseph Seed and his deadly cult. A conversation Carmina has with The Judge seems to be one of the most direct hints of the character’s real identity. In Far Cry 5 players help Nick Rye and his wife with the birth of their first child a baby Carmina. In New Dawn Carmina is now an adult and will mention to The Judge how her parents told her the story of how The Judge before they were silent and wore a mask helped during her birth.

Things are going well until a pair of sisters named Mickey and Lou come with their soldiers called The Highwaymen to attack the citizens of Prosperity to steal their food and supplies. Montana is no longer a safe place to live thanks to The Highwaymen invading everyone’s space. Although the main story involving the villainous twins is fine the majority of the time the plot isn’t anything special.

This is all thanks to your main character having no name or voice as they’re just referred to in the game as The Captain. I think the story would have been much better if the main character had a proper backstory and an actual personality. It’s hard to feel sympathy for a character with no name voice or any distinguished features whatsoever.

Far Cry New Dawn is the direct sequel to Far Cry 5 and continues the story after the original’s nuclear ending. If you choose to continue pursuing Joseph Seed also known as The Prophet the world is engulfed in fire and the United States is irradiated. However pockets of survivors still cling to existence around the country but your journey again leads you to Hope County Montana.
