What We Can Tell from the Far Cry 5 Cover Art

/ May 24th, 2017 No Comments

Far Cry 5

Ubisoft released the cover art for Far Cry 5 ahead of big reveal on May 26. Of course, it is difficult to make any conclusions on the game based on something as simple as the cover art, but the artwork provides some hints at what to expect.

We already knew the game will be set in the fictional Hope County, Montana and that it’ll likely be coming out this year, but that’s it. With the key art revealed, we can now make some educated guesses about Far Cry 5.

A Religious Cult is the Enemy

The cover art is a scene that imitates The Last Supper, but that’s not where the religious themes end. At the center of the image is a man who appears to be the leader of this religious cult — and he bares a striking resemblance to Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne from “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Another man at the bottom left of the artwork looks to be imprisoned by the cult. The word “sinner” has been spelled across his back.

In addition, a church in the background drives the religious theme home. The church and the flag on the table are both adorned with an Iron Cross-looking symbol. Could this religious cult be the evil you fight in Far Cry 5?

Lots of Weapons

There’s not too much going on in this scene, but there’s somehow a lot of weaponry on display. At the forefront of the image, you’ll see RPGs and assault rifles placed in front of a compound bow. Bows are all the rage these days.

You can also see knives and different types of handguns throughout the scene.

Hope County Doesn’t Have a Lot of Diversity

This is one image of what appears to be a particular group in Far Cry 5, but it doesn’t seem like we’ll see many women or people of color in Hope County. There is one woman in the image, and she certainly looks like she doesn’t play the same role as the men.

Planes and Automobiles

Near the Far Cry 5 logo in the key art, two planes can be seen flying through the air. These appear to be small crop-dusters, but what do you expect to find in Hope County, Montana? Will players get a chance to fly these planes through the games rural setting?

A truck can also be spotted in the back, so it looks like there will be some on-ground transport available as well.

Much Doggo

Seated at the end of the table is a war-ready canine. Donned with what appears to be war paint, this dog looks ready for battle. He also has a chain leash attached to him, which is being held by one of the characters in the scene. Judging by the teaser trailer, Hope County could be populated with wildlife. Will you have to fight dogs or will you have a pup companion of your own?

We are expected to learn a lot more about Far Cry 5 when Ubisoft reveals the first full trailer for the game on May 26. The trailer is set to release at 6 a.m. PT.
