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.
When you’re trying to take down an insidious cult that has gripped a small town in its violent clutches, it’s nice to have a friend along for the ride. That’s why the developers of Far Cry 5 have designed the entire campaign to support co-op play. Whether you’re taking on missions to root out the Project at Eden’s Gate or just cruising the countryside in a pickup while your buddy flies a plane overhead, the vast open world of Montana is more than big enough for the both of you.
Once you’ve completed the intro section of Far Cry 5, all you need to do is send an invite to someone on your Friends list (who has also completed the FC5 intro) to get your co-op session going. Your friend will spawn into your world seamlessly, and the two of you can get busy liberating Hope County. Every mission is playable in co-op, but there are also Challenges and a bevy of other activities you can take on, not to mention simply roaming the open world and causing havoc for the cultists.
Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve prepared a superb sampling of video game greatness for you this week. Interviews on Far Cry 5 and The Sims 4, chatter about Destiny 2 and Undertale, yet another update on Darkest Dungeon (really), and even a few throwbacks to our favorite fighting games.
Enjoy the show!
You’re stranded behind enemy lines in cult-occupied Hope County, Montana, and nobody’s coming to help you. Eden’s Gate, a veritable army of fanatics, has finally made its move and locked down the area, leaving you and every Hope County resident in cult territory. Now you’re standing alone against deadly odds in Big Sky Country, with no bars on your phone and only one way to stop the madness: take down Joseph Seed, the self-styled prophet of Eden’s Gate, and free Hope County from his campaign to save souls by force. And if you’re going to survive long enough to do that, you’re going to need to make some friends. Welcome to Far Cry 5, coming February 27 to PlayStation 4.
