Set in America for the first time, in Montana, players will have total freedom to navigate this serene-looking yet deeply twisted world solo or entirely in two-player co-op as they fight for survival and freedom.
Caught off guard and drawn into a power struggle, players must disrupt the carefully laid plans of the Project at Eden’s Gate and fan the fires of resistance to help liberate the Hope County community and themselves.
Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. The fight against the cult will take players to unique locations throughout Hope County that provide different gameplay experiences. During their journey, players can fly planes to engage cult forces in aerial dogfights across Big Sky Country. While tracking down cult members and gathering resources for survival across farmland, forests, mountains and rivers, players can get behind the wheel of iconic American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs and boats. Vehicles also provide refuge when under attack by animals or as a way to quickly escape when things don’t go as planned.
To take down the cult, players will need to utilize any and all weapons at their disposal, including ranged weapons such as guns and grenades and melee weapons like a sledgehammer or baseball bat. Additionally, players can recruit Guns for Hire from a large cast of characters, or even Fangs for Hire, specialized animals like bears and cougars to complement players’ playstyles whether they’re going in stealthily or forcefully. How players approach each situation and the chaos they create in Far Cry 5 is up to them. Far Cry 5 will also see the return of the map editor, giving players the opportunity to create and play an infinite amount of new playgrounds. The map editor will include new features that add a new dimension to the content created by fans, with more details coming soon.
Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies, the third post-launch adventure, will release August 28 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Guy Marvel, legendary film director from Far Cry 5, is back with over-the-top zombie experiences that will be playable across seven unique maps.
Dead Living Zombies can be purchased as add-on content for $7.99, as part of the season pass for $29.99 or the Gold Edition for $89.99.
Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies pairs players with D-tier film director Guy Marvel as he pitches his vision for an epic zombie saga. On maps built from the powerful Far Cry Arcade Editor, players will explore seven different film scenarios as they face hordes of the undead across rooftops, farmlands, military bases and more. After completing each map, players can unlock Score Attack to achieve 3-star ratings, which will unlock weapons and gear to bring back to Hope County.
All Far Cry players will receive additional tools in Far Cry Arcade that unlock even more potential for map builders, including scripting tools and destructible objects. These additions will be available to players along with more new assets in our next update, Title Update 10.
The post-launch of Far Cry 5 includes three unique adventures – Hours of Darkness, Lost on Mars and Dead Living Zombies – giving players the opportunity to explore beyond Hope County. All Far Cry 5 owners also have a diverse selection of assets in Far Cry Arcade, allowing them to customize the Far Cry experience. The adventures are available in the season pass or as add-on content, while all asset releases for Far Cry Arcade will be available for free to all players.
