    Today, Ubisoft announced that gamers will experience the chaos, unpredictability, and ferociousness of the Far Cry franchise with Far Cry 5 on PlayStation®4 Pro computer entertainment system, PlayStation®4, the Xbox One family of devices, including Project Scorpio, and Windows PC. Set in America for the first time, in Montana, players will have total freedom to navigate this serene-looking yet deeply twisted world solo or entirely in two-player co-op as they fight for survival and freedom, when the game releases on February 27th 2018. Development for Far Cry 5 is being led by Ubisoft Montreal*.


    As the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana, players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden's Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Caught off guard and drawn into a power struggle, players must disrupt the carefully laid plans of the Project at Eden’s Gate, and fan the fires of resistance to help liberate the Hope County community and themselves.


    Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. The fight against the cult will take players to unique locations throughout Hope County that provide different gameplay experiences. During their journey, players can fly planes to engage cult forces in aerial dogfights across Big Sky Country. While tracking down cult members and gathering resources for survival across farmland, forests, mountains and rivers, players can get behind the wheel of iconic American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs and boats. Vehicles also provide refuge when under attack by animals or as a way to quickly escape when things don’t go as planned.


    To take down the cult, players will need to utilise any and all weapons at their disposal, including ranged weapons such as guns and grenades and melee weapons like a sledgehammer or baseball bat. Additionally, players can recruit Guns for Hire from a large cast of characters, or even Fangs for Hire, specialised animals like bears and cougars to complement players’ playstyles whether they’re going in stealthily or forcefully. How players approach each situation and the chaos they create in Far Cry 5 is up to them. Far Cry 5 will also see the return of the map editor, giving players the opportunity to create and play an infinite amount of new playgrounds. The map editor will include new features that add a new dimension to the content created by fans, with more details coming soon.

    While I enjoyed Primal I am definitely excited to see things in modern times. It looks great just wish it was coming sooner.

    Away from this shithole
    Man, can you imagine if Ubisoft took another religion to satire in this game?


    Also this looks sweet. Gonna buy it, but not preorder it.

    Trailer didn't really do anything for me, I think I'm getting burnt out on open world games. But the rumours of full campaign co-op has me interested.

    Looks the same as the last 2 awful Far Cry games. Pass.

    Call me when they take more than a year to throw a game together.

    4 Far Cry games between 2012-2016. Which means 1 game a year.

    Ubisoft pumping them out now like COD,Sports titles, and Assassins Creed.

    I know people don't like truth but whatever. Far Cry hasn't been good since 3.

    I will only really be interested if they change up the gameplay somehow. Ubisoft games have been stuck in this rut for so long, where you have the same recycled game elements from each of their other games in a cookie-cutter world that's just littered with quest markers you need to go to. I'm actually excited for this/next year's Assassin's Creed, because they said they're going to be changing things up (finally). But see, Far Cry 3, 4, and Primal were all so bland. I wonder what they're gonna do now to remedy this apathy I have towards Ubisoft titles.

    I agree with everything you say except Far Cry 3 being bland. Far Cry 3 was fantastic.

    When I first played Far Cry 3 it was fantastic, but since then, my opinion of it has changed. But that's likely just the deluge of bland Ubisoft games coloring my view. Far Cry 3 was novel for me at its time, but then every Ubisoft game started feeling similar and so that kinda ruined Far Cry 3 for me, haha.
