Far Cry 5 (stylized as FARCRY 5) is an upcoming Far Cry game. It will be released on 27th March 2018.[1] It is set in the fictional Hope County, Montana, USA.[2]

Plot Edit

The remote community of Hope County, Montana, has been taken over by the cult Project at Eden's Gate , lead by Joseph Seed and his siblings.

Following the uploading of several videos exposing Eden's Gate of their actions in an attempt to save Hope County, the US Marshalls issue an arrest warrant for Joseph Seed’s arrest. A US Marshall, along with The Junior Deputy, Deputy Pratz and Deputy Hudson arrive in the town to arrest Joseph. Shortly after bringing him to their helicopter, Joseph’s followers shoot it down, rescuing Joseph and causing the mission to fail, with the Junior Deputy escaping to safety.

A new deputy Sheriff sets out to reclaim the town from the grip of the militaristic cult. Assisting the Sheriff are several allies with their own personal grudges against Eden's Gate, including local pastor Jerome Jeffries, bush pilot and mechanic Nick Rye and bartender Mary May Fairgrave, and of course Hurk.

Some of these provide quests, some will help you in combat.

Missions Edit

There are different types of missions on Far Cry 5.

  • Story Missions - These main story missions advance the player through the game. These are to do with the storyline and you can now choose any paths of the storyline.
  • Side Missions - The player can talk to characters and locals and do other objectives for them.
  • Clutch Nixon - The player drives in a certain type of vehicle while going through red, white and blue misty rings with white stars on them to give the player extra time to get to the goal.

Gameplay Edit

As for a Far Cry game the open world first person shooter remains the same, but with many new features such as customizable vehicles and fully operational planes with dogfights. For the first time in the series, Far Cry 5 offers full character customization. The hunting system is back and the ecosystem along with it, but with far less exotic animals. Also, fishing is introduced.

Far Cry ArcadeEdit

Far Cry Arcade is a mulitplayer mode and a map editor mode. With it, you can create your own maps to multiplayer and singleplayer and share your creations to the community. In the map editor, there are infinite possibilities, for example there will be assets from Far Cry 4, Far Cry Primal and Far Cry 5 and other Ubisoft games too.

You can also add audio and change the environment too. There are 4 modes on singleplayer, Assault, Outpost, Journey and there is a new mode introduced, it's called Bounty Hunt. It's where you have to hunt down and kill the target before escaping to the extraction zone. There will be a lot more editor objects too, more than any other Far Cry game. They say it would be the best experience you'd ever have in Far Cry 5
