It’s a big week for Far Cry 6, as the game’s new Vaas Insanity DLC has launched, alongside new Breaking Bad-inspired cosmetics. The game has also received an update that fixes bugs.

The Vaas Insanity DLC lets you play as Vaas, the villain from Far Cry 3 portrayed by Better Call Saul’s Michael Mando, who came back to record a new performance for the Far Cry 6 DLC. The DLC is inspired by the roguelite genre.

“Starting with nothing more than a pistol to defend themselves, players will need to find new weapons and unlock power-ups to become stronger and progress deeper into the depths of Vaas’ psyche,” reads a line from the DLC’s description. “Blending intense action and storytelling, Vaas: Insanity will provide a unique opportunity to better understand Vaas’ past, personal demons, and motivations.”

The expansion is not available to purchase by itself, so you’ll need to pick up the Season Pass ($40) to get access. Two further expansions are coming focused on villains from other past games, including Joseph Seed (Far Cry 5) and Pagan Min (Far Cry 4).

Also available now in Far Cry 6 are new cosmetics inspired by Breaking Bad, which makes sense given that Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito plays the game’s main villain and Mando appears in the prequel spin-off Better Call Saul. The content includes new Heisenberg-themed outfits and weapons, while the fried chicken restaurant Los Pollos Hermanos is also now in the game alongside special outfits themed around the restaurant.

November 16 also saw the release of a new Far Cry 6 hotfix that fixes various issues. Here are the patch notes:
