Today, Ubisoft has uploaded a launch gameplay trailer for its upcoming open world action-adventure title Far Cry, which provides several snippets of the game’s story as well as some gameplay footage.

Far Cry 5 is currently being developed by Ubisoft Montreal (with additional assistance from Ubisoft Berlin). Set in modern-day Montana, players take control of a sheriff deputy who finds himself in the middle of a violent conflict with a murderous cult known as Eden’s Gate.

Far Cry 5 is set to be released on Tuesday, March 27 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In addition to a standard edition, the game is also available in a variety of different, more pricey versions, including the Gold Edtion, which not only includes the vanilla game but also provides the game’s $29.99 Season Pass. Those to obtain the Season Pass will have access to three standalone DLC expansions. Additionally, those who own the Season Pass will also receive Far Cry 3: Classic Edition (or Far Cry 3 for PC owners).
