We have got fair amount of information on Far Cry 5 but let’s discuss what we know so far about this game. Now Far Cry 4 was quite good game but Primal wasn’t that good, didn’t bring anything new to the table. So, hopefully Far Cry 5 can be a bit of return to form for the series especially now that we are back to the number titles.
The game is centered around extreme religious cult in the fiction place of Hope County Montana. There’s a sheriff who arrives in the County to discover that the region has taken over by the Doomsday cult by the name of The Project at Eden’s Gate. So, you do the usual stuff of rallying the locals into a resistance and take out the cults and some people refused to join you instead they join the cult.
Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4 were much made more than that than some of the parts of the villain. Hopefully the villain are as the same as it were on Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4. However, we have no idea how the villain is going to be in Far Cry 5 but if we look at the history here Far Cry series has entertaining villains.
In terms of the gameplay we don’t know a lot yet there’s going to be more information on that in the upcoming E3. However, we know that there’s going to be planes, guns for hire, there’s going to be muscle cars, ATV’s and some other vehicles and the usual wide array of weapons.
However, a first for the series is character customization which basically means that you can choose your race as well as your gender but we don’t actually know whether it’s going to be customization in terms of changing your look. Even if that is it, it’s still nice to see some choice being added in to the series.
Another thing is that will be making a return is the map editor which was missing from Far Cry Primal but has been on the series in Far Cry 2 and Ubisoft itself have said that the map editor will be rather available to help you “create and play an infinite amount of new playgrounds” and there’s going to be new features for the editor that will “add a new dimension” to the maps.
And finally the crucial information of all is the release date, it is not coming out this year unfortunately. They are doing an arguably smart thing and fitting this game comfortably after the Christmas rush because so many games crashing into the same three weeks space. However it is coming out on February 27th, 2018.
