The previous Far Cry games had players in foreign, usually third-world countries, attempting to bring down corrupt and violent gangs, sometimes with the help of a nearby tiger.
Far Cry 5 is now scheduled for a March 27th release!
Of course, those who prefer a more guided adventure will also receive a considerable amount of content, starting with the Hours of Darkness, Dead Living Zombies, and Lost on Mars DLCs, as well as Far Cry 3: Classic Edition, which will be available to Far Cry 5 season pass owners an entire month before it launches as a standalone game.
Ubisoft's Far Cry franchise has always had a larger-than-life approach to its design, and it looks like Far Cry 5 will take that one step further.
In addition to the paid season pass, Far Cry 5 and Far Cry Arcade will be the host of a number of free activities. What's really special is that it technically acts as a crossover between Ubisoft games; this new mode will include assets from Far Cry 4, Far Cry Primal, Far Cry 5, Watch_Dogs, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and Assassin's Creed Unity. Ubisoft said the map editor will include more than 7,000 different objects that players can use to customize their levels with. PC players are not forgotten about; they just have to wait until after the launch of Far Cry 5 before they get the full version of Far Cry 3. It's the sort of system found in other Ubisoft titles like Assassin's Creed Origins, where you know exactly what you're getting. And of course the map editor is meant to be the backbone of PvP in Far Cry 5, meaning you'll be able to compete across whatever quirky, player-created maps Ubisoft has made a decision to feature in a given week. Scattered throughout Hope County are olde timey Far Cry coin-operated machines that serve as an access to multiplayer team deathmatches and unique challenge maps for single player. What's more, these DLC assets will be integrated into Far Cry Arcade upon release.
