FAR CRY 5 Takes Aim at Crazy Cult Militias in Rural America

Today at E3, Ubisoft unveiled Far Cry 5 during their presentation with a hauntingly poignant teaser and a good portion of gameplay footage. It was an impressive display of the familiar explosions and over-the-top action that the series is best known for, but for fans of the franchise things are very different this time around.

Far Cry 5 takes place in modern America, a first for the series, in the small area of Hope County, Montana where a fanatical doomsday cult called the Project at Eden’s Gate has begun a violent takeover that threatens the whole country. Their leader is a terrifying preacher, named Joseph Seed, who believes that he alone can lead the citizens of Hope County to salvation through any means necessary. Seed uses intimidation and religious manipulation to eventually form a militaristic unit that turns against the law to usurp the town’s leadership. Players will fight the good fight as the newest junior deputy of Hope County against the rising insurgence of crazies in this stunning open world RPG. On your side is an A-team of outlandish and foul-mouthed misfits who specialize in everything from sniping to piloting, but more importantly you get a cute companion pupper named Boomer to send after your enemies.

As always, Far Cry looks to impress with gorgeous graphics and some seriously intense action gameplay. There’s everything from classic handguns to plane turrets to 18-wheeler trucks at your disposal and it couldn’t look prettier. Far Cry 5 will also support Co-op play, so you can share the mayhem with your family and friends. Finally a game that encourages bonding with family over the destruction of evil cultists.

Ubisoft has also announced their collector’s edition that will be exclusive to the Ubisoft Store. This edition comes with a lot of in-game goodies that will no doubt peak some interest for those wanting to really invest. Ubisoft released the following description:
