Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Far Cry 5 is planned to hit the store shelves on February 27, 2018. Dan Hay, executive producer for Far Cry 5, then appeared on the stage to talk about Hope County, which was described as "vast" and "rugged", but overrun by a cult. The game is set in Hope County, Montana, a fictional city that has been taken over a cult led by a man named Joseph Seed. We even see the player run over someone with a tractor, resulting in a bloody mess.
Ubisoft showed off more of Far Cry 5 at its E3 2017 press conference. You can check both out at the bottom of the article.
Far Cry 5 is open for pre-order on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The footage gave players a brief look at the game's setting and mechanics.
Boomer, your trusty dog, qualifies as "fangs for hire" and will not only be able to rush into battle, and take out enemies but also go grab you new guns and other weapons from the cult's clutches.
Co-op gameplay is also confirmed for the entirety of the game's story, meaning that the already strong handful of companions can be further bolstered by a friend in online play.
It includes all of the game's digital content, including the season pass.
Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance.
