Get a First Look at Far Cry 5 and a Release Date in this New Trailer

The first full-length trailer for Far Cry 5 is out, and it shows you the cult militia you'll be squaring off with.

It's only been 10 days since Ubisoft announced Far Cry 5, and we've just seen the game's first trailer released. The trailer shows off the new American setting for the game, and introduces the cult militia you'll be up against. The official description reads,

"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."

The cult calls itself "The Project at Eden's Gate," and it's preying on the citizens of Hope County. You'll have to join the resistance, and fight back. You can play by yourself, or invite a friend to play alongside you in co-op.

Ubi says that it will be showing lots more of the game at E3 next month, but for now, it definitely has our attention. You can find more information, including all the digital pre-order bonuses, over at the game's official website. Far Cry 5 will launch for PC, PS4, and XBox One on February 27, 2018.

Damn it, the baddies aren't wearing red hats.

Such an opportunity wasted. You disappoint me Ubisoft.

There's a bunch of other trailers for anyone who's interested. They're nothing special though.

I like the previous FarCry games, I am sure this will be no different.

Hmm. I feel like Far Cry keeps flirting with the possibility of being a really good survival game, with all the crafting, skill trees, and wild creatures roaming through the open wilderness, but then they go and spoil it by filling it with guns. A Komodo Dragon running at you from the treeline is a terrifying prospect - if you aren't toting enough weaponry to embarrass a small country. Blood Dragon got away with it because the creatures in question were armour-plated and could soak up the damage. Tribal got away with it because your weapons were limited to a variety of pointy sticks. But contemporary, modern-day Far Crys just lose all of the tension of the survival aspect due to the ready availability of beastie insta-killing weaponry.

Zhukov:
Damn it, the baddies aren't wearing red hats.

I'm sure MAGA hats and replacing the dialogue of all the cult members with Trump clips will be literally the first mod in the Workshop.

Second will be reskinning the cult to be SJW extremists.

Zhukov:

Damn it, the baddies aren't wearing red hats.

You mean like the gnomes from Fable 3?
I'm now expecting Far Cry 5 to be about Good Christians versus Bad Christians.

When I first heard that the next Far Cry was going to involve fighting back against a group of religious extremist militants who have taken over a rural countryside and are executing anyone who doesn't submit to their beliefs, I thought we were going to be fighting ISIS.

But nope! It's rednecks! In Montana, a state that saw 35 homicides in 2015!

Seriously, while everyone was salivating at the thought of 'smashing the fasc', ISIS took over a city of 200,000 in The Philippines. The fiction of this game is literally happening RIGHT NOW!

Can't wait for more details though! Will the melee weapon be an upgradable Bike Lock? Is there a big plot twist where we find out that 'The Project at Eden's Gate' is being financed by the Russians?

They should have a mission where you have to protect journalists from political leaders

Kind of interested, but it's Ubisoft so I expect some weird stunts in the vein of W_D and day one DLC1/exclusive content.

I am interested, even if its the same formula as Far Cry 3/4 I prefer the FarCry games more than any other Ubisoft Open World games.

You might have to settle for body slamming Jesse Ventura in WWE 2K99!
Preorder now to get a gamble box that might have Jon Stewart!

EDIT
....
Implied references are about Gianforte who just won an election in Montana.

Saelune:

Or have the main character go directly to the cult leader and throw a bitchfit, cause they don't have enough muslims and paganists in their ranks.That will make em' check their privilege, those damn traditional-religion-phobes.

The game's antagonists are fanatical violent cult whose recruitment method is convert or die and they kill anyone who isn't them? That's funny...they don't look islamic.

WHAT?!

How does a man assault a reporter for doing his job and still get elected?

So after Heart of Darkness they've decided to do Deliverance. SWEET

You honestly thought that this game is going to have you fight Isis in Montana U.S, wow just wow

Sounds like you want to play Monster Hunter instead of Far Cry honestly.

I could get behind that.

Sorry, I'd rather not play Modern Warfare again.

I'm not angry Ubisoft, I'm just disappointed you're using such lazy and outdated stereotypes. Farcry has always been set in "dangerous and exotic lands" but even in Montana civilization has complete control. The American militia movement is a joke and their greatest success was occupying a park ranger station for a few weeks. It also may come as a shock, but Christians REALLY look down on violence and the only serious examples of it were based on stopping abortion, not gaining new followers or saving people against their will. They know the best way to enforce their morals and agenda is not with force but at the ballot box, which surprise, requires a functional government that everyone participates in.

I'm also curious to see how this is going to impact the game mechanics without a total suspension of disbelief. Is this game taking place in the past before cell phones, or has the American government collapsed? Because within twenty four hours of the first shot being fired the feds will know and fill these guys with sniper bullets. Are they holding the whole town hostage and you need to rescue them? That would work for other tactical shooter games but doesn't really feel like a farcry game where you're one guy isolated and on his own.

I really don't have a problem with them picking America and some of our darker elements as a target. Bioshock Infinete did a pretty good job exploring American racism and "Exceptionalism". But I find a giant flying city powered by patriotism more belivible than this "realistic" setting.

This is honestly how i pretty much see america irl.
Well throw in people in business suits rushing around to do business and SJW types screeching about empathy and compassion whilst having none themselves and bullying you with their buddies, and yeh it's a 100% accurate depiction of how i imagine US to be and why i'm terrified of ever setting foot down there. So missing 2 factions really, maybe in a later reveal?

So i might quite enjoy this game! Even it just reinforces my prejudices :S

1. That would be awesome. I love that kind of lonely setting in games.
2. Oh yeah, that's NEVER happened with Far Cry. No-

OK, fine. Just that one gam-

BTW, sorry if that sounds more hostile than I intend it to be.

Why is there a Resistance at all? Isn't a cult with more guns that common sense the kind of thing the FBI or ATF respond to?

Not really there has been many examples of Christianity being violet and violet anti abortion protests(also abortion doctors getting death threats)

Yeah, like that pastor in San Bernardino last month.

How does a sexual assaulter who mocks US military veterans, collude with Russians, and BE the epitome of "evil big business" but still get the "anti-corporate" title and get LESS VOTES but become fucking President!?

A wide variety of hypotheticals revolving around
- How Cable TV deals with news.
- How a born American can become president without working at a state elected office.
- Money becoming more important than Americans.

But to keep rhetorical questions going....
How can Cable TV show polls that Bernie can defeat Trump, Hillary tied with Trump, Keep pushing that these polls will change to suit Hillary Supporters, & not get mocked for their own version of "alternative facts"?
Or
How can all the blame be put onto Bernie Or Bust if it simply comes down to the idea that Swing States just didn't trust Hillary?
Or
If it honestly did come down to Bernie Or Bust then how come Hillary Supporters can't accept that about half the democratic party was only going to vote if they sided with Bernie Supporters?

After all if Hillary Supporters were going to vote Democratic no matter what. And still thought it was a great idea to go against Bernie Or Bust. Then it just proves half the democratic party doesn't care for the needs of the other half.

And before I get blamed for being a Bernie Bro I voted for Zephyr Teachout. And had Elizabeth Warren ran I would've chose her over Bernie. Because I am willing to vote for women when they represent progressives instead of Citizens United.

There's not enough difference for me to get excited. If anything it makes me want peacefully stop the violence. Even if my Player Character gets crucified for it.

"But the stereotypes!"

Guys, c'mon now. What're to old excuses for bad representation in video games? It's just a game, get thicker skin, my Christian Montanan friend says it's okay (me, btw), etc.

Maybe, if some folks start talking about the representation of different races, sexes, and religions in video games in the future, you remember this moment.

Nor are they shouting "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

If they're just after you, that's different. But if they're after your family and your friends, you should at least try to defend them.

We did that in the UK. Northern Ireland was a blood bath.

There have been lots of christian groups that quite enjoyed violence. Waco Twxas didnt end well. Look at the break down of Yugoslavia. The christians were trying their hardest to kill all of their ethnic muslim brethren. You could also try Northen Ireland. I can think of few things scarier than being in dublin in the 80s when a group of men ask you if youre catholic or protestant. You dont know which is the right answer but the wrong answrr could end very badly.

Neither was fond of the ballot box and sending the army in didnt work either. Im sure there are plenty more examples as people are dicks, but thats 3 off the top of my head.

The premise seems to be that you are playing right around the time the cult locks the area down and traps people inside, ATF and FBI would be the response in cases where they were part of an investigation, in this case they would be so heavily armed it would be more likely that if the FBI or ATF was aware of their existence they would call in the National Guard. In the game it seems that they have infiltrated cult members into the county's structure, so the FBI is not aware of their plans by the time they decide to stage their takeover.

How will the feds know if they've cut off communication, it's too early to tell if there isn't something else going on, but for a really rural isolated area, there is no cell access, period, for some of the rural towns I've been to, I have to bring a satellite phone if I want a connection, and there is only one landline out, so you cut that and everyone in the area basically isn't alerting the federal government of jack shit, with or without a murderous militia. I've been in places that have had outside communications cut for more than 24 hours just by bad weather, the US does not have 100% cell service coverage, and many towns in Montana are extremely isolated.

This also ignores that most of the Farcry games would not work if we applied your logic to them. We sent US Navy destroyers to escort ships after only a couple of ships got hijacked by a bunch of pirates in small motorboats, there is no way in fuck a real life group with someone like Vaas in Farcry 3 could exist without bringing serious anti-piracy forces down on them, nevermind the bullshit with the private militia controlling the southern island, the UN would be all over that within months. Farcry 4 is just as far fetched, there is no way in fuck China or India would allow a pissant little civil war like that right on their borders, especially with all the heavy military hardware that Pagan Min was throwing around, they basically had to insert a CIA conspiracy and an arms dealer with magical supply lines to justify the kind of military weight Kyrat was throwing around. Farcry 1 had magical murder monsters, so that leaves Farcry 2 as pretty much the only entry with sort of realistic geopolitical considerations.

not to mention you can get mobile phone jammers, etc.. so theoretically it might be possible to completely isolate an area at least for a while
