All Articles: Far Cry 5
Ubisoft has announced their PAX West 2017 booth will be devoted to one game… Far Cry 5. The open world action game is set to launch for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 27, and players will step into the shoes of a green junior deputy as they go deep undercover to stop a doomsday cult.
Today, Ubisoft announced its PAX West 2017 lineup, inviting fans to take down cultists via aerial dogfights, shootouts and more in an exciting demo of Far Cry 5, at the Ubisoft booth (#605) in Seattle from September 1–4. After a tense exchange with the Project at Eden’s Gate, attendees can get a change of pace and partake in a fishing competition. Competing against eight people, the person who catches the biggest fish in the span of 10 minutes will win a special Far Cry 5 pin.
Ubisoft will also host two panels at PAX West 2017 for their fans. One will offer a deeper look at Far Cry 5, while the other dives back into the world of this Spring’s For Honor:
Far Cry 5
September 2, 2:30 – 3:30 PM (Pacific Time)
Far Cry 5 throws players headlong into a war against the Project at Eden’s Gate, a sinister doomsday cult that has taken over idyllic Hope County, Montana. Join the resistance of Hope County as they rebel against the cult’s dark influence. Hosted by Achievement Hunter’s Jack Pattillo, the panel includes Lead Writer Drew Holmes and the talent bringing the colorful denizens of Hope County to life, Murry Peeters (Grace Armstrong), Martin Roach (Pastor Jerome Jeffries), Steve Byers (Nick Rye) and, that’s right, Boomer the dog.
September 4, 2:30 PM (Pacific Time)
Every week, the For Honor dev team presents a live show which connects them directly with their community. Answering questions, providing news and information and oftentimes a big peek behind the curtain of the game’s continuing post-launch development, the Warrior’s Den has become an important touchpoint for transparency and information for players. Now, for the first time ever, the For Honor team will be doing the show live and in person with their community. Join Creative Director Roman Campos Oriola, Game Director Damien Kieken, Lead Designer Bio Jade Adam Granger and Community Developer Eric Pope.
God of War 4, Insomniac’s Spider-Man, new Assassin’s Creed, multiple unannounced titles, more to be unveiled during E3 Coliseum
The full lineup of panels for Geoff Keighley’s inaugural E3 Coliseum has been announced, and it looks like the series will give fans a closer look at God of War 4, Assassin’s Creed 2017, Insomniac’s Spider-Man, and several other upcoming titles. Keighley will also offer a showcase to a few games yet-to-be-announced from Bethesda Softworks, Square Enix, and Epic Games.
You can find the complete E3 Coliseum schedule after the break. (more…)
Ubisoft has a bit of a problem. The publisher wanted to create an “iconic” E3 2017 teaser to get their fans hyped for gaming’s biggest showcase, but unfortunately, most of the games they want to talk about are still shrouded in secrecy.
So what’s a publisher to do? Ubisoft decided to give their fans a few seconds of footage from South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Far Cry 5 interspersed with redacted images from their upcoming Press Conference. Viewers who tune in to the presentation will learn all about a variety of new games including a “Conference Exclusive,” a “New IP Saved for Conference,” and another “Conference Exclusive.”
It’s not much to go on, but we do know that Ubisoft plans to officially announce The Crew 2 and Assassin’s Creed 2017 during this year’s E3 Expo… so two of those slots may already be spoken for.
Ubisoft’s 2017 E3 Press Conference will take place on Monday, June 12, at 4:00 PM (Eastern Time). You can view it at home through Ubisoft.com.
As foretold, Ubisoft fully unveiled Far Cry 5 today, and confirmed the game will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 27, 2018. The first trailer for the first Far Cry game set on US soil introduces us to the residents of Hope County, Montana, and the “fanatical doomsday cult” that has infiltrated the town:
As the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana, players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden’s Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. 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.
Taking control of unique and customizable character, players will attempt to take down the cult alongside a large cast of characters, and an even larger arsenal of vehicles and weapons:
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.
Like previous games in the Far Cry franchise, players will have total freedom to tackle the each situation as they seen fit. But Far Cry 5 will also introduce a cooperative element for the first time, and players will be able to team up with a friend to experience the entire story together.
To further introduce players to the residents of Hope County, Ubisoft also released a series of “Character Vignette” trailers for three members of The Resistance. You can find them after the break. And we can expect to hear more about Far Cry 5 during this year’s E3 Expo. (more…)
Ubisoft will pull the curtain back on Far Cry 5 with a special “Worldwide Announcement Trailer” on Friday, May 26. But first, they’ve unveiled the game’s box art, which provides a few big hints as to what the title will be about.
With the Montana setting and the Last Supper-esque posing of the characters, it’s easy to assume that a religious cult will play a major part in Far Cry 5’s plot. And the amount of guns strewn around the table is probably meant to invoke comparisons to David Koresh’s Branch Davidians or Jim Jones’s Jonestown. Also, I don’t know if you noticed, but the cult leader is very likely getting ready to feed his prisoner to that wolfhound on the right.
If all goes according to plan, Far Cry 5 will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime this year.
The Far Cry franchise is best known for its exotic locales, but a new teaser trailer for Far Cry 5 has revealed the next game in the series will be set in the fictional Hope County, Montana. Popularly known as the state where people go to live “off the grid,” the publisher introduced Far Cry 5’s Montana in a series of brochure-worthy snapshots that were sadly interrupted by scenes of grisly violence:
A man screaming in pain in the middle of a peaceful mountain forest… A dead body floating down an idyllic stream… Another man running through an open field as a gunshot rings out… and a quiet church where one man is brutally beating another in the belltower…
We don’t yet know how all of these images are connected, but Ubisoft has promised to fully unveil Far Cry 5 with a “Worldwide Announcement Trailer” this Friday, May 26.
Ubisoft has announced plans to showcase Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and a brand new Assassin’s Creed game at this year’s E3 Expo. However, that’s all the publisher was willing to announce, as we don’t know much of anything else about any of these games. That said, Ubisoft did give us a look at a pair of new logos for Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2.
The 2017 E3 Expo will open its doors on June 13.
