Far Cry 5 Box Art

This game was released on March 27, 2018 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

The fifth main installment in Ubisoft’s Far Cry franchise takes place in a fictional Hope County in modern-day Montana. Players take on the role of a local sheriff’s deputy, and fight a radical doomsday cult known as Eden’s Gate, which is led by the charismatic Joseph Seed.

Far Cry 5 features all the series’ staples, such as open world, various vehicles, customizable weapons, and gadgets. The game also borrows the “Fang for Hire” system from Far Cry Primal, allowing the player to tame wild animals to assist them in battle. The entire single campaign can be played in a two-player online co-op.
