Ubisoft unveil the official Far Cry 5 key art, revealing a healthy slab of information.

Today, Ubisoft released the official Far Cry 5 key art, which confirms the game — as it was rumored by many — is not a Western, but is actually set in modern time.

As you may remember, earlier this week, Ubisoft revealed that the upcoming installment in the series was set in Hope County, Montana alongside the release of four teaser vignettes showcasing the different landscapes found in the region.

Meanwhile, the new key art shows off what is presumably the main villain of the game and his entourage for the first time using imagery modeled after of The Last Supper of Jesus Christ. This along with the church in the background, the prisoner with the tattoo “sinner” on his back, the bread, and the “holy grail” seems to heavily suggest that there is some type of religious cult theme going on.

As mentioned above, the game is clearly not a Western, as you can see via the modern clothing, planes, and weaponry, and in case you didn’t know Montana is very rural, the key art also does a great job at depicting that.

Ubisoft has said a worldwide reveal is set for Friday, May 26th. Far Cry 5 is in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and is slated to launch sometime within Ubisoft’s current fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2018.

Below, you can check out the key art for yourself:
