‘Far Cry 5’ Trailer: Guns, Cults and Planes in Montana, coming on February 27, 2018

Official trailer for Far Cry 5 is here folks, and *I* am *stoked* to the brim. I love the series, I love the idea of taking on religious militias in the United States, and I love being chased by bears. A…a perfect union.

Rock Paper Shotgun:

Far Cry 5’s [official site] first full-length trailer is heavy on the plot, showing a cult that will bring people into its fold “by force if necessary” and all the grimness that entails, but it’s also packed full of colourful car-chases, wide open countryside, and there’s a bit where a man is being chased by a bear. Oh, and planes. There will be planes. The game will be out February 27th 2018 and you can see the trailer below.

You’ll play as the new junior deputy of Hope County, a fictional slice of Montana, and the game begins at the point when the doomsday cult (‘the Project at Eden’s Gate’) turn from quiet infiltration to violent takeover. Hope County is cut off from the rest of the world and under siege, and you’ll organise a resistance against Eden’s Gate, using planes to engage in dogfights, tracking down cult members and fighting on foot and in vehicles across “farmland, forests, mountains and rivers”.

For the first time in the series, you’ll create your character rather than using a built-in model, and the entire campaign can be played in co-op.

Ubi promise “iconic American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs and boats” as well as the series-first planes.

I’m most excited about the Guns for Hire and Fangs for Hire. The former are human recruits to help in the fight and the latter are “specialised animals like bears and cougars”. I will form the mighty ursine resistance.
