Far Cry 5 DLC Features Zombies, Aliens, and Jungle Warfare

I've a feeling we're not in Montana anymore...

Far Cry 5 focuses on the battle to free Hope County, Montana from the grip of The Project at Eden’s Gate cult, but its post-launch content will take PlayStation owners far beyond rural America. The Far Cry 5 Season Pass includes access to three new expansions.

In Dead Living Zombies, you’ll struggle to survive in a zombie-infested wasteland, facing off against hordes of the undead. In Hours of Darkness, you’ll trade gunfire with Vietcong fighters in Vietnam, while Lost on Mars takes you to the titular red planet to test your mettle against Martian arachnids.

The Season Pass also includes a return to a familiar location, specifically the Rook Islands. Far Cry 3 Classic Edition is an update to the classic open-world adventure game that will give players an opportunity to come face-to-face with Vaas, one of gaming’s most notorious villains, for the first time on PS4.

In fact, one of the team’s fondest memories of working on Far Cry 3 happened when Michael Mando, voice actor for Vaas, came to the studio dressed up in full Vaas gear and took pictures with everyone from the dev team for two hours. During the development of the game, Dan Hay, creative director, had a running bet with everyone on the team that if the game got a certain amount of high review scores, then he’d get a tattoo. The team hit the goal, so he ended up getting his Far Cry 3 ink (we secretly hope it is a honey badger, but cannot confirm).

Far Cry 5 Season Pass holders will get to re-experience the Rook Islands early, before Far Cry 3 Classic Edition goes on sale as a standalone game. Far Cry 5 launches on PS4 on March 27. The standard, Deluxe, and Gold Editions are now available for pre-order from PlayStation Store, and the Gold Edition comes bundled with the Season Pass.

There’ll be plenty of wild new territory to discover and blow to smithereens, so get ready to grab a co-op buddy (or just some local Montanan Guns for Hire) and go berserk.

  • Is the Far Cry 3 just an…”updated” version of the game, or is there anything new added to it?

    • Your saying that like Far Cry 3 alone is not enough… …

    • Yea, they were surprisingly vague. I want to know what kind of visual enhancements we can expect, native 4K on PS4 Pro, improved textures? Really cool that it will be on PS4 but the reason for people who already own the game on PS3 to want it for PS4 should be in the initial announcement.

  • Nooo i pre order the deluxe edition :(

  • You should just be able to pay the difference, and get the gold version instead. That’s normally what I do when I pre-order things like this.

  • I can’t wait for Far Cry 5. What also got me excited is the fact that I can now play Far Cry 3 on PS4. Does it include all the DLC? What about Blood Dragon?

  • Can we get more details on this FC3 on PS4. I don’t really care for part 5. It looks boring.

  • Hum… might be worth it. I like this style of DLC where it’s just using the engine and making an almost entirely different game out of the assets. Makes it feel like it’s not just a bad mission that was omitted from the original release due to it being a waste of resources.

  • Sooo….I’m confused. None of those say Far Cry 5: Blood Dragon.

    • And yes, I’m kidding (except not really, cause I would love me some more Blood Dragons in Far Cry) cause these 3 DLCs packs look interesting.

      What I particularly appreciate is a breakdown of what each of the DLCs will entail for the Season Pass. Usually it’s just a random title with no details. While I understand when it’s a continuation to the Base Story (like with Wolfenstein or Bioshock: Infinite), there are many times where it’d be nice to know what users are getting with the Season Pass.

      I hope that Ubisoft continues this trend, cause having a posting this detailed is an excellent way to alleviate concern for what you are/aren’t getting.

      In regards to the content itself, this looks just as LEFT TURN crazy as I’d expect and love from Far Cry….Zombies, Vietnam(Blood Dragon?), and Space Aliens on Mars???? Yes please!

    • I agree with you. It is the first “season pass” version of game I have pre-ordered in long time precisely because this Blog post detailed out what the DLC packs will contain.

  • Far Cry 3 on PS4? Yes, please!

  • I preordered the Gold edition off Amazon. When will
    I be able to play Far Cry 3?

    • I did the same. It includes the Season Pass, so it should also include Far Cry 3. Since I have Amazon Prime, it also gave me $20 off on the $99.99 price so my cost will be 79.99 + tax.

  • From what I have read the far cry 3 is only the single player campaign. So no editor maps

  • Has anybody watched the walking dead this looks like all the seasons put together characters and and all. Just saying sounds like they ran out of heir own ideas and are using that with a little twist..
