Last month, publisher Ubisoft and developer Ubisoft Montreal revealed Far Cry 5 with an official announcement trailer, that confirmed that Ubisoft was taking its popular Far Cry series to a place it never had been before: the United States.
In the first-person shooter open-world game, you’re facing off against an armed, radical cult based within Christianity called The Project at Eden’s gate, who have sunk their claws through violence and indoctrination into Hope County, Montana, where the game takes place.
Set in modern times, you play as a protagonist who is a junior deputy police officer in the fictional Hope County, Montana. Players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, called Project at Eden’s Gate. Quickly the county breaks into a violent take over between a resistance group and the cult. Your job: to help liberate the Hope County community and themselves.
