The next installment in the Far Cry series will have a full reveal in just a few days.
Announced with a few grim live-action clips on YouTube, Ubisoft is nearly ready to shed some light on Far Cry 5. Based on the trailers below, there’s plenty we already know. First and foremost, the game is set in Montana in fictitious Hope County. The collection of clips doesn’t say much about the era the game is set in, but based on the clothes and propane tank in the the church scene, the game will have a modern setting. The sequence of the man in the field also confirms guns will make a return; something many rightfully assumed, but it is still worth mentioning after 2016’s Far Cry Primal.
As you can see from the trailer, whatever is happening in Hope County isn’t good. If this teaser is any indication, it looks like Far Cry 5 is quite a bit darker than Far Cry 4.
Today’s announcement also confirms rumors of a Montana setting after a studio claimed to be working on promotional scenes for a Paris-based game studio last month. The same studio who shot the promotional trailer claimed the game is launching in September of 2017, but we’ll have to wait until Friday to confirm. For now, that’s all we know about Far Cry 5, but keep an eye on Ubisoft’s official YouTube for a full reveal on Friday May 26, 2017.
