Far Cry 5 Official Details Announced; Releases February, You Create Main Character


The first full details emerged today for Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5 set in Montana. For the first time in the series, we will be in charge of the main character. Just as in Mass Effect, the protagonist will look exactly as we create them in the game.
The story focuses around the antagonist, Joseph, who is in charge of a religious group called The Project at Eden’s Gate. All of his followers are called Heralds, and the players’ character will be in charge of arresting Joseph as a deputy in Montana. Weapons and vehicles will be customizable as well with some of the main stays of gameplay present. Hunting and gathering are included so we’ll have to forage for supplies, and apparently there are airplane battles as well.
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 utilize 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, specialized 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.
No gameplay was released today, as only a cinematic released some footage of the game. E3 will surely have some gameplay next month during Ubisoft’s press conference at 4PM est. Monday, June 12th. Take a look at the trailer below, and Far Cry 5 releases February 27th, 2018.
