Read more about Far Cry 5 and watch the new trailer and gameplay video below.
Welcome to Hope County, Montana, land of the free and the brave, but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult known as The Project at Eden’s Gate that is threatening the community’s freedom. Stand up to the cult’s leader, Joseph Seed and the Heralds, and spark the fires of resistance that will liberate the besieged community.
In this expansive world, your limits and creativity will be tested against the biggest and most ruthless baddest enemy Far Cry has ever seen. It’ll be wild and it’ll get weird, but as long as you keep your wits about you, the residents of Hope County can rest assured knowing you’re their beacon of hope.
The Project at Eden’s Gate
The Project at Eden’s Gate believes The Collapse is imminent, and only their merciless and manipulative leader, The Father, can save them.
Led by The Father and commanded by The Heralds, Eden’s Gate preys on those hopeless folks who have fallen into economical and psychological despair. They believe the cult will provide them with salvation, and in return they must devote their souls.
Hope County Resistance
Throughout the hills, valleys, and townships of Hope County, civilians of all walks have joined forces to resist against the cult, and rid their land of its chaos once and for all.
Comprised of everyday townsfolk from Holland Valley to the more self-sufficient residents spread throughout the Whitetail Mountains, every member of The Resistance has one thing in common: They want Hope County back. And they’ll use every tool at their disposal to ensure Joseph Seed is giving his next sermon from the grave.
You Are In Control
Set within beautiful rural Montana and built on an open world format, Hope County truly is the land of the free. From the simple pleasures of Holland Valley to the healing wonders of the Henbane River to the raw power of the Whitetail Mountains, you’ll find endless adventure the deeper you explore.
Resistance Meter Game Leveling
When you hit hard, the enemy’s gonna hit back harder. Far Cry 5’s dynamic AI tracks the effect you’re having in the game, and alters the enemy’s strategy against you. Be prepared: The cult will boost their efforts when you become less of a nuisance and more of a threat.
The fate of Hope County is in your hands. Take on the cult solo or team up with a fellow resister in co-op mode and wreak havoc upon Joseph Seed and his band of cult followers. In the biggest Far Cry release ever, you’ll have everything at your disposal – from hired guns to hired fangs and the baddest arsenal this side of the Mississippi.
Guns and Fangs For Hire
Your posse comes in all shapes, sizes, and species. To help aid in your campaign against The Project at Eden’s Gate, call upon other Resistance fighters from in town or from the backcountry, riverbeds, and blue skies of Hope County.
Far Cry 5 is currently scheduled for release on February 27, 2018 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
