Bring On The Bad Guys In ‘Far Cry: Rite Of Passage’

by James Ferguson

Dark Horse Comics and Ubisoft have joined forces for Far Cry: Rite of Passage, a new series expanding the universe of the video game series. Written by Bryan Edward Hill, illustrated by Geraldo Borges, colored by Michael Atiyeh, and lettered by Comicraft, the three-issue mini-series features covers by artist Matt Taylor.

Bringing in fan-favorite villains, Far Cry: Rite of Passage is a gritty tale of the intricate road that leads to the ascension to power. The story kicks off as President Antón Castillo’s only son, Diego, has just turned thirteen. But this birthday is more than a celebration—it’s a rite of passage. Antón wishes to teach Diego important lessons in leadership and recounts cautionary tales he has heard about the undoing of three legendary men: Vaas Montenegro, a pirate, Pagan Min, a dictator, and Joseph Seed, a preacher. 

“Thanks to a wonderful collaboration with Dark Horse, we are thrilled to share with our fans the very first Far Cry comic series”, said Marie-Joëlle Paquin, Product Director on Far Cry. “Through Bryan and Geraldo’s amazing work, we’ll get a fresh look into our beloved villains’ dark pasts. We can’t wait for everyone to fall down this rabbit hole with us.”

Far Cry: Rite of Passage #1 is set for release on May 19th, 2021.
