When Ubisoft announced that we’d be getting a Far Cry 5 trailer on Friday, they didn’t tell us we’d be getting four of them. That’s right, four. The first is the main trailer delivering the vibe of our setting in Hope County, Montana. The other three are character focused on what likely is our main cast.
“Something… is coming.”
The trailer for Far Cry 5 essentially depicts what we hypothesized. There’s a cult that has essentially taken over Hope County, Montana. Your arrival has further incited them. And now all hell has broken loose. Here is Ubisoft’s official description of the game:
“Far Cry comes to America in the latest installment of the award-winning franchise. Welcome to Hope County, Montana. When your arrival incites the cult to violently seize control of the region, you must rise up and spark the fires of resistance to liberate a besieged community. Freely explore Hope County’s rivers, lands, and skies with the largest customizable weapon and vehicle roster ever in a Far Cry game. You are the hero of the story in a thrilling world that hits back with every punch, and where the places you discover and the locals you ally with will shape your story in ways you’ll never see coming.
SPARK THE FIRES OF RESISTANCE AGAINST A FANATIC CULT: Stranded in hostile territory, find strength in the community around you to lead a resistance against a cult taking over Hope County, Montana.
CARVE YOUR OWN PATH: The freedom to go in any direction – you decide the when, the where, and the how. From the moment you enter Hope County you have the freedom to tackle the world in any order you choose.
A WORLD THAT EVOLVES Play your way against Joseph Seed and his fanatical followers in a dynamic open world that adapts and reacts to the choices you make.
DYNAMIC TOYS Tear up the countryside in iconic American vehicles you can make your own; from muscle cars to big rigs, from ATVs to tractors.”
And here’s the trailer itself:
As I said before, in addition to the core trailer, Ubisoft also issued three character centric videos to give you some background on the main cast. Check them out below. Far Cry 5 hits Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on February 27th.
