Far Cry 5: we have latest information from Ubisoft; including the games’ release date, ground information and some new trailers. The game is set in a fictional place; Hope County, Montana, it pits players against an outrageous religious clique.
Far cry series has set a mark in the gaming world and fans of the game are thrilled for the latest installment of the series, so without further ado let’s dive into what’s and how’s directly.
Far Cry 5, is the next installment in the far cry series, a first-person shooter franchise. You can play it on PS4, PC and Xbox One. The game will be releasing on 27th March, 2018.
The game is set in Montana, it opens with you, a novice deputy, at night, in a helicopter with your fellow officers and a US Marshall. The Marshal carries a warrant to arrest the cult leader, Joseph Seed, who calls himself The Father.
He resolutely belives that the end of the world is near, and he and only he can save the town, all of you are there to take him in. The night time here is good for atmosphere but terrible practically.
You arrive in Hope County only to find out that the entire town has been taken over by the cult, The project at Eden’s Gate. You are specifically there to help out residents and make them fall in line to resist the cult and completely take it out. However, some locals will turn against you and take sides with the cult.
Our Villain; The Father
Joseph Seed, the father has big bets on him for the latest edition to the game series, Far Cry 5. Last two predecessors of the series and their extremely over-the-top villains, Vaas Montenegro and Pagan Min are a tough standard to beat.
At this point we do not know much about the character of Joseph Seed, but if his predecessors are any scale to judge him on, I have big expectations form him to outperform his predecessors, but in turn I also know that it will be very difficult, if not impossible.
We still have much to find out about the game plays and many surprises can be in store for us. Judging from what I have heard about the game, Far Cry 5 will be a new twist on the open worlds of the past two games. There still be bad beasts to beat, bases to conquer and vehicles to drive.
The spin here, is that you can now fly a plane and hire guns and fangs, allowing you to gather both NPC’s and beasts for your cause. A wide array of vehicles as muscle cars, ATVs as well an extensive collection of weapons will be there for you to enjoy.
Ironically this will be the first time you will be able to fully customize your character (I so longed for this feature). This puts you on the driving seat on the overall look of the character, it means you can play as a man or a woman and also choose your ethnic appearance. It is still unclear how much liberty we would have in character customization, nonetheless I am still thrilled for the prospect.
The game can be played both solo or in two player co-op mode. This however is quite unlike the last two games. This will certainly get things interesting as we will get to see how co-op will work for the entire game.
Far Cry 5 is coming to PS4, PC and Xbox One. Regrettably, the game will not be coming to Nintendo Switch.
Far Cry 5 releases on March 27th, 2018. A fine choice date-wise so as to get the most out of the high time in the gaming community before the holiday season kicks-in.
Here’s the reveal trailer.
That’s all folks.
