Ubisoft has officially announced Far Cry 5, as well as shared numerous details about the game, complete with a release date. The title, which will be released on February 27, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, will see players take control of a custom-created police deputy in an attempt to liberate Hope County, Montana from the Project at Eden’s Gate cult.
Far Cry 5 is the first in the series set in America, and will task players with hiring mercenaries, and training various animals in an attempt to create a Resistance against the vicious cult. You will be able to travel the map, which can be edited through the returning Map Editor, with ATVs, big rigs, boats, and even planes. Some of the returning weapons are guns, grenades, baseball bats, and sledgehammers.
Ubisoft has released five trailers for the game this morning: 2 story trailers, and 3 character trailers.
