Far Cry 5 was released on March 26, 2018 by Ubisoft. The game was developed by Red Storm and Ubisoft Montreal. Far Cry 3 is a an open world first person shooter.

The game story takes place in Hope County, Montana, land of the free and the brave but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult known as Eden’s Gate.

The player takes on the cult leader Joseph Seed, and his siblings, the Heralds, to spark the fires of resistance and liberate the besieged community. The player can proceed by foot and there are also so vehicles available.

Unlike earlier releases, Far Cry 5 allows players to customize their character’s appearance.

Gameplay can be single player to as 2 player coop. Players can recruit Guns and Fangs for hire to help defeat the cult.

Overall the game is a solid refresh without carrying too much of the previous games lore into the campaign. For example, if you get downed your dog can revive you by licking your face. Weapons like a shovel can be used to hunt for game etc. There are also many ranged and explosive weapons to discover.

Like the earlier releases, there are missions to do get upgrades etc. The game is also much more adaptable to the way the player approaches gameplay. For example, civilians may return to an area after being cleared of cult forces. The civilians can then become sympathetic to the player’s campaign and they can then be recruited.

The graphics quality of the game is excellent, but you need a powerful video card to play this game cranked up. There is also a map editor for those who want to do a new map in 3D Studio.
