Far Cry 5 is Now Available
Well Far Cry fans, the wait is over, as Far Cry 5 has finally been released to the masses. It’s availble in Canada for the tidy sum of $79.99 (Cdn) and can be bought in physical for, or in digital on the Xbox One store. It is also enhanced for the Xbox One (4K and HDR), even though the press release does not say so. And our apologies for the trailer below, it only has the PS logo in it for ’marketing’ purposes, as it seems that they have some strangle hold on the game marketing in one way or another.
Set in America, a first for the franchise, Far Cry 5 offers players total freedom to navigate a serene-looking yet deeply twisted world as the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana. Players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden’s Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance.
This first-person shooter set in a completely open world. Players will have the freedom of choice, wrapped in an immersive story with memorable characters, where they can experience Far Cry Moments: unpredictable and unforgettable moments in the game – like getting attacked by a bear while quietly fishing or being rescued by Boomer at just the right time. Players can play any way they want, including recruiting Guns for Hire, Fangs for Hire and a Friend for Hire, which allows players to play the entire game in co-op, a franchise first.
As an added bonus, the game also includes Far Cry Arcade, which is what Ubisoft is claiming to be the biggest and most versatile map editor mode for the Far Cry series. In Far Cry Arcade, players can create new scenarios by utilizing assets from other titles in the series, as well as other Ubisoft franchises, including Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Unity or Watch_Dog, for solo, co-op or competitive experiences.
So, are you going to pick this game up? We know a few staffers who have been waiting to play this, and they will be venturing through the world of Hope County soon.
