The Far Cry series throughout the years has taken players to exotic islands, Himalayan mountains, the African bushveld and even back to prehistoric times. So where to next for the popular series? Well the good old United States of America of course.

Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 takes place in the serene looking, yet deeply twisted areas of Montana. As the new junior deputy of Hope County, Montana, players will fnd that their arrival accelerates a yearslong silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden’s Gate, igniting a violent take over of the county. Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, the player will join forces with residents of Hope County and from the Resistance. 

Far Cry 5 not only features a brand new location and villain, but also features new vehicles in the form of aeroplanes, opening up the impressive open world even more. Attack enemy bases from the sky and unleash your justice from above. To take down the cult, players will need to utilise any and all weapons at their disposal, including ranged weapons such as guns and grenades and melee weapons like a sledgehammer or baseball bat.

Additionally, players can recruit Guns for Hire from a large cast of characters, or even Fangs for Hire, specialised animals like bears and cougars to complement players’ playstyles whether they’re going in stealthily or forcefully. How players approach each situation and the chaos they create is up to them. Far Cry 5 is an interesting new direction for the series, but with all the elements that made the series such a hit frmly in place. It’s a clever, funny and terrifying frst-person shooter and is already a candidate for game of the year for 2018.
