Far Cry 5 Is Now Available

The latest installment of the Ubisoft first-person shooter available to buy and play now on PS4. The game is set in modern-day Montana in the fictional Hope County and the player (you) takes on the roll of a Sheriff’s deputy who becomes entangled in a violent conflict between a doomsday cult called Eden’s Gate, led by “The Father” Joseph Seed and his children, and the resisting residents of Hope County who have seen their friends and family taken or killed by the cult.

Far Cry 5 is different to its predecessors as the game pits you against a religious cult in the U.S., rather than the government of a ‘exotic’ country and fans of the franchise seem to have welcomed this change with open arms. Also Ubisoft have used the change in setting as a chance to dial the gore up to eleven, Far Cry games have never shied away from graphic violence but this game inundates you with it.

The game also features a less restrictive playground than its predecessors. After a short introduction, you can go to every corner of its world map and take on most of its content. You can go where you want and do what you want. Want to hike up to a remote spot in the woods and go fishing, you can do that, you can also chose ignore the game’s story and roam around Hope County causing mayhem!

Far Cry 5 is a continuation of everything you remember about the series, but an installment that’s taken a good look at itself, and what it does, to work out the best possible way of doing it. The compact, more streamlined design never feels small and instead comes across as more achievable and event filled. How often have you finished a Far Cry with a ton of missions and bits you never got around to doing? That’s that stuff that’s been paired back. What remains are the best bits – the pure, distilled chaos of the series, more manageably portioned and packaged.
