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.
Far Cry 5, developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other studios,* is a 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.
Far Cry 5 also includes Far Cry Arcade, 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_Dogs, for solo, co-op or competitive experiences.
Players can also purchase the Gold Edition of Far Cry 5, which includes the base game, season pass and bonus content, for $99.99 or digitally for $89.99. The Far Cry 5 season pass transports players to uncanny adventures across three unique settings with the upcoming DLCs - Hours of Darkness, Dead Living Zombies and Lost on Mars - and more. On top of that, players who purchase the season pass for PS4 and Xbox One get Far Cry 3 Classic Edition at no additional cost, while PC players get the full version of Far Cry 3 at no extra cost on May 29. Far Cry 3 Classic Edition will also be available as a standalone purchase on June 26.
The Season Pass is also available as an add-on purchase on PS4 system, the Xbox One family of devices and Windows PC for $29.99.
