Welp, as if I wasn’t sold on wiping out religious fanatics in the midwestern USA before, I am now. Today, as Gamescom kicks off in Germany, Ubisoft just posted a nice 8-minute long gameplay walkthrough of Far Cry 5.
From the release:
Set in America, a first for the franchise, Far Cry 5 offers players total freedom to navigate a serene-looking yet deeply twisted world 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. Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. Far Cry 5 releases on February 27, 2018 for PlayStation®4 Pro computer entertainment system and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, Xbox One S and Windows PC.
