Far Cry 5 DLC – Vietnam, Zombies & Martians OH MY!


Ubisoft has announced some details about the Far Cry 5 Season Pass. In what’s probably the weirdest combination of DLC, FC5 players will be sent off to Vietnam and Mars as well as taking time out to fight off zombie hordes.

Ubi also released a new story trailer for FC5 too. Check out this crazy gu…trailer.

Far Cry 5 DLC
  • Hours of Darkness sends players back to Vietnam to fight Viet Cong soldiers
  • Dead Living Zombies pits players against increasing hordes of zombies in “B-movie settings”
  • Lost on Mars sends players to the red planet to fight spider-like Martians

In addition, players who purchase the Gold Edition or who purchase the Season Pass separately will receive the single-player part of Far Cry 3 for free. This applies to PlayStation 4 and XBox One owners only.

FC5 is due for release on March 27, 2018 for PC, Playstation 4 and XBox One.

Far Cry 5 Tie-In Novel Excerpt

Late in January, Ubi posted an excerpt from the forthcoming tie-in novel, Absolution.

The sheriff came in and sat in his chair. He took off his hat, put up his feet, and looked across the desk at her. “What’s this all about?” he said.

“You know what this is about,” Mary May said. “I just want to know what you’re going to do about it?”

The sheriff fingered the band of his hat, picked something off the brim and flicked it away. He had been a bull rider at one point and Mary May remembered him from when she had been a girl. Daddy and Mamma had brought her and her brother, Drew, to see this man ride. The man had been skinny then, and young. She had stood at the edge of the railing and watched him come out of the gates. They had hollered at him to stay on as he rode out into the center with the dirt kicking up under the bull and the man bouncing atop, barely able to hold on. He had seemed fearless in that moment. He had seemed like some sort of hero, but he did not seem like that now.

He tossed the hat on the table, took his feet down from the desk, and looked her straight in the eye. “Shit, Mary May, you know I can’t do a thing about it. You know it wasn’t nothing but an accident and even if it wasn’t there’s not a goddamn thing to be done.”

“An accident? Daddy went out there to get Drew. Forty some years of driving trucks, his and anyone he worked for, and he never even put a scratch on one of them. Now you’re calling it an accident?”

“I’m sorry for your loss, but there’s nothing that can be done.”

She looked at him sitting there. She could see the genuine compassion in his eyes and she felt saddened for him because she knew that what he was saying was true. “You think they’re ever going to push you too far? You think they’re ever just going to push you so far you fall off the edge?”

“What are we talking about here?”
