Ubisoft has just released the official launch trailer for Far Cry 5, which comes out tomorrow, Tuesday March 27th 2018. Check out some of the action along with the story involving the doomsday cult here.
Far Cry 5 will be similar to its predecessors from Ubisoft, where the game is action-adventure along with first-person shooter. The open world environment will be accompanied by ranged and explosive weapons to fight enemies, with some included close-quarters combat with melee weapons. A new feature is players will have a character creator where they can customize the character’s appearance. The synopsis for the game can be found below:
The game is set in the fictional Hope County, Montana, where a preacher named Joseph Seed (portrayed by Greg Bryk) has risen to prominence. 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 outside world 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.
The player takes on the role of “Rook”, a sheriff’s deputy who is part of the task force sent to Hope County to arrest Seed. Seed has assumed the title of “the Father” and maintains control over Hope County with the aid of his siblings, known as “the Heralds”: Jacob, a former military officer who oversees their armed soldiers; John, a lawyer who has been able to acquire much of the land in Hope County for Eden’s Gate; and Faith, who acts as a pacifist to bring the people to believe and trust in her older brother. The residents of Hope County opposed to Seed include a cast of characters who join the fight with motives ranging from altruism to revenge, profit and boredom.
Far Cry 5 will be out tomorrow on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC! Are you ready?
