Far Cry 5‘s lead writer Drew Holmes confirmed during an interview that the game will be similar in length to other entries in Ubisoft’s series.
For reference, Far Cry 3 and 4’s stories both clocked in at around 15 hours each. This of course is not taking into account the loads of extra things to do in the game’s large, sprawling open world. If you’re in it for more than the story, there should be plenty of content here to satisfy you.
Far Cry 5 is set in Hope County, Montana. You’ll be pit up against a doomsday cult known as The Project at Eden’s Gate led by Joseph Seed. You and other community members will rise up and try to overthrow the cult of fanatics. Unlike the past two games, you’ll be able to create your own protagonist, choosing their gender as well as ethnicity. Whether or not those elements will play into the game’s story has yet to be confirmed.
Far Cry 5 is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on February 27 next year.
