Ubisoft Reveals Far Cry 5 Post-Release Content
Ben Sheene / Mar 6th, 2018 No Comments
Ubisoft plans to support Far Cry 5 well after launch if the reveal of two post-release content trailers are any indication.
A trailer for the Far Cry 5 season pass and Far Cry Arcade offer a glimpse into what players can expect in the months to come after the game releases.
Far Cry 5 takes players to Hope County, Montana, a slice of the American frontier that has been taken over by the Eden’s Gate cult and its leader Joseph Seed. Players will be able to tear through Hope County firing guns, driving vehicles, and taming animals but Ubisoft is offering much more for players who wrap up the campaign.
The season pass sends players off on three distinct journeys that are a literal far cry from Montana. Hours of Darkness is the first piece of DLC where players find themselves in a Vietnam ravage by war. In what looks to be a more grounded story, Hours of Darkness has players fighting Vietcong, rescuing prisoners of war, and trying to evacuate the treacherous jungle.
Lost on Mars is the second space-fueled DLC set on Mars. Jetpacks, futuristic weapons, and an alien invasion brings Far Cry full circle from 2016’s Far Cry Primal. The third DLC, Dead Living Zombies, is a two-player co-op experience where a B-movie director pits players against seven different scenarios involving the undead. Season pass owners also get early access to Far Cry 3: Classic Edition four weeks before it becomes available as a standalone purchase.
Far Cry 5 live events are free limited-time challenges that test skills players have gained over the course of the game by giving them goals to work towards. Weapon skins, unique vehicles, and other customization options will become available as players progress through the game.
Far Cry Arcade is Far Cry 5’s free map editor mode that enables players to create their own solo, cooperative, and PvP levels. By simply going up to an arcade booth or poster, players will launch into the Far Cry Arcade to check out any newly featured user-created levels. Curated by the developers, these levels allow players to carry over any experience points, perks, or money earned while playing Arcade or the campaign.
Arcade has about 7,000 objects that can be dropped into a custom map. These include assets from Far Cry 4, Far Cry Primal, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Watch Dogs, and the Far Cry 5 DLC. Arcade offers new modes such as Bounty Hunt, where players must track down and neutralize a specified target; and Journey, where an exit needs to be reached. PvP can reach up to 12 players with maps offering animals, vehicles, and character loadouts.
Far Cry 5 releases March 27 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
