Welcome to Hope County!
Ubisoft has been teasing Far Cry 5 [official site] for a few days, since the above image was leaked on Wednesday. That was followed by this teaser trailer, stating that the game will be set in Hope County, a fictional region in Montana. Well today an official trailer, showing some in-game footage, was released, and it looks brilliant.
From watching the trailer we can see that the game will be jam-packed with muscle cars, planes, and religious preaching of ‘atonement’ (which I’m sure has something to do with guns and killing somewhere along the line).
Welcome to Hope County, Montana. When your arrival incites the cult to violently seize control of the region, you must rise up and spark the fires of resistance to liberate a besieged community.
Freely explore Hope County’s rivers, lands, and skies with the largest customizable weapon and vehicle roster ever in a Far Cry game. You are the hero of the story in a thrilling world that hits back with every punch, and where the places you discover and the locals you ally with will shape your story in ways you’ll never see coming.
You can view the full description on the game’s website.
Far Cry 5 will release on February 27, 2018, and more information is bound to be released at E3 next month.
