When I first wrote about Far Cry 5 a while ago very little was actually “official” information. You know these companies like to try and keep a lot of stuff under lock and key, but eventually, a few things get out. Far Cry 5 was supposedly going to come out in 2017, but like with Red Dead Redemption, it got pushed back into 2018. Right now the official release date is February 27th, 2018. But that’s actually good because now you have plenty of time to do your pre-orders.
I know for me personally, I want to get this game but considering all the other games I am getting this year, I probably wouldn’t have the time or the money to get Far Cry 5 so I am glad its coming out in 2018 so I can spend more time with it!
There are quite a few different version editions for this game, but they will be available for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and of course PC. You can find the pre-order information as well as some new images available for the game further down.
Ubisoft has said that out of all the Far Cry’s this is the one that will be the most customized. You should be able to customize your character from head to toe – its supposed to work a lot like Tom Clancy’s Wildlands (which I really love!).
In Far Cry 5 the game will be set in fictional Hope County Montana – its incredibly serene and beautiful. Here is what Ubi has to say about the game and the location:
“The game is set in the fictional Hope County, Montana, where a preacher named Joseph Seed has risen to prominence in the region. Seed believes that he has been chosen to protect the people of Hope County from an “inevitable collapse” and has established a congregation called Eden’s Gate. Ostensibly, this is to fulfill his mission of leading the people to salvation; in reality, Seed is a radical preacher and Eden’s Gate is a militaristic doomsday cult. Under his rule, Eden’s Gate has used both coercion and violence to forcibly convert the residents of Hope County, and intimidation to keep them from contacting the federal government for help. When an attempt to arrest Seed ends with the deaths of several lawmen, the player is swept into the armed conflict between Eden’s Gate and the remaining Hope County residents who are organizing themselves into a resistance movement.”
In Far Cry 5, you will be fighting against a cult called Eden’s Gate and the main guy is named Joseph Steed. The game is supposed to be solo and co-op with multiplayer as well. You will also be able to drive and fly a lot of different vehicles in the game; from cars and trucks to planes, ATVs and more.
