Today, publisher Ubisoft and its in-house developer Ubisoft Montreal released a healthy slab of new developer hand-holding gameplay footage that takes you deeper into its unique Montana setting, some of its features, toys, and of course your dog-for-hire Boomer.
The new trailer specifically features tractor riding, tractor drive-by murdering, adorable dog kisses from for-hire-able Boomer, fishing, forced baptisms, stealth and rambo combat approaches, big-rig semi-trucks, a variety of wildlife, plane flying, dogfighting, a Far Cry 3 Vaas easter egg, and more.
Notably the video also points out that for the first-time ever in the series you will be able to explore the world — which is the biggest Far Cry world yet — in any direction you choose, right from the start.
For those that don’t know: Far Cry 5 is set in modern times and takes the players in Hope County, Montana (the first time Far Cry has been located within the United States). In the game, you play as a junior deputy police offer who has just arrived in Hope County, but whose arrival quickly accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult called Project at Eden’s Gate.
Said silent-coup swiftly turns into a violent take-over and war between the cult and a resistance group. Your job is to help liberate Hope County.
Far Cry 5 is poised to release on February 27, 2018 for PS4, PC, and Xbox One. It will notably support PS4 Pro and Xbox One X as well, however, said support has yet to be detailed.
