Far Cry 5 Trailer Released, Game Coming Spring 2018
Ubisoft has lifted the veil on Far Cry 5 this morning, showing us our first look at the next generation in Ubisoft open-world games.
Far Cry 5 takes place in Hope County, Montana, where Joseph, a cult leader, has begun dividing the region and brainwashing the people into a new political ideology. The game promises to be controversial and provocative, though we'll have to wait and see for ourselves, because as of now, it just seems like Ubisoft PR and hyper-liberal media are trying to get attention by bragging about how edgy Far Cry 5 will be. It's a game about shooting some good 'ol America rednecks. I'm in.
Players will take the role of a sheriff's deputy and join pastor Jerome, who's church has been taken over by Joseph and his cult, and others to gain allies and fight against Joseph and his menacing army of nimrods.
Ubisoft is touting that players can play the game the way they want, choosing when, how, where they want things to happen. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that how Far Cry games usually work outside of main quest missions? You can now make your own vehicles like big rig trucks and American muscle cars. Cool, cool. You can also have a dog companion in this game, because everyone wants dogs in games these days.
The game is set to release on February 27, 2018 on platforms that have yet to be announced (assume PS4, Xbox One, and PC). Ubisoft promises to show more at E3, but if you like blindly throwing your money at big publishers, you can pre-order the game now.
Sounds like a new Far Cry, I can't wait!
