The official announcement trailer of Far Cry 5 has been launched by Ubisoft. The game’s release date has been set for February 27, 2018 and will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Furthermore, there will be three different editions available of the game to choose from and will include features like two-player co-op mode and more.
The premise of the open world game has shifted to Montana and introduces a cast of new characters that includes a religious doomsday cult as well as the resistance force that is fighting against them. The gameplay trailer launched by Ubisoft shows us Joseph “The Father” Seed, an American cult leader, who’s devoted to keeping things going their own way along with his numerous followers.
The game has you playing a young deputy who’s been tasked with bringing Joseph and his cult down. It’s up to you to create a group of your own – finding people you can trust and resources you can use – to combat his.
There are 3 key figures in the game that will help you out the most in your quest – Pastor Jerome, the man of God who isn’t afraid to pick up weapons; Mary May, a bartender whose family has fallen prey to the cult and Nick Rye, a master of mechanics who will help you out with resources like vehicles and tools whenever you may need them.
