Ubisoft's violent open-world series is heading to Montana, and Gamereactor has taken a first look at what it offers.
I'm very pumped for this game. Far Cry games are just.... FUN.
So far it does looks very promising...I just hope they don't try SOOOO hard to be controversial that they ruin the game. Games are a different medium, and since you are engaged in them...the message gets intensified...so it's easy to go overboard.
They're not. The only complaints I'm seeing are people complaining about the currently non existent complainers. Frankly it's getting tedious. The game looks cool, leave the social commentary (if it comes, which as yet it hasn't) out of it.
@Fishy Fingers, I absolutely abhor that. It's like with the whole Starbuck's "red cup" controversy. There were far more people upset that people were supposedly worked up about it than there were actual people worked up about it. 99% of the time they're just giving more attention to the select few that are actually upset about it.
The only controversy right now is based on people's knee jerk reactions to their assumption that the game was going to be anti-christian, despite nothing actually suggesting that will be the case. As of right now, it's just the media trying to get clicks.
Lol @ downvotes. "Screw your concept of fun!" (on topic I agree - always enjoy these games)
gotta have it, looks really cool.
Looks like a nice fun game, with an interesting theme and setting. If it has good online coop and no useless crafting, I might buy it
So it faction wars?..... Again?
I think this will be the first Far Cry game I buy. I love the setting and have heard amazing things about the past games. So why not
You deffently need to go back and pick up far cry 3, if you have XB1 it's BC.
Is the story in 3 better than 4?
@slate91 the story is much better than FC4.
You need to play the 3rd!
3 is definitely one of the best games I've played!
Very cool they are letting you make your own character this time around.
At least the devs appear to be making impactful changes with each game. Clearly, they know the definition of insanity better than most other developers do!
You can customize your character but I believe you won't be able to create your character from scratch, like changing his skin color/hair/gender and etc. If you could that would totally alter the immersion of the story and from the looks of it they are going to focus more on the story compared to Far Cry 4 and Primal but we will see.
I hope you're wrong. I disagree as well that it would ruin immersion, if it is all in game cut scenes they'll be fine and be able to just plop your character in no problem.
Never had any interest in any of the Far Cry games though the story of this game looks interesting.
Been disappointed with the recent Far Cry games, or maybe Far Cry 3 was just that damn good. Hoping this one brings me back to loving the series, although I doubt they will ever have a villain as good as Vaas.
Far Cry 4 was better in EVERY way besides the story of course. Since I already played 3 I wouldn't go back to 3 if I had a choice of 3 or 4.
LOVE the setting and plot!
Shit game from shit developers.
Are you serious ?
YES, YES, YES! This new entry in the series hits home for me with three tiers. Urban setting, Westerny setting (lawlessness and swift justice) and finally some racist, cult-like hillbillies getting what's coming to 'em. The timing couldn't be better for this title. I don't want to shoot digital Indians, or Russians, or whatever. We got our own holler mofo's that need cleansin' DAY ONE AMIGO! Some bad hombre's need a-whipping.
Racist? Did I miss something in the trailer?
"Westerny setting (lawlessness and swift justice) and finally some racist, cult-like hillbillies getting what's coming to 'em. " This is sickening and if said about any other ethnicity or race would be condemned.
It looks like the usual Ubi bean Soup... each serving changes the type of bean and herb.
I'm very excited about this.
The ubisoft logo always make me fear the worst....
I really hope they take the characters quality right back to Vas & match that. He was one of the best gaming characters of all time Pagan Min wasnt even in the same ball park of quality so I hope they spend more dev time on them this time.
For sure day 1 download via-torrent. Can't wait! :D
LoL, doubt you'll get it day one
Unless the game lets me play AS the militia assaulting the Buzzfeed offices where Hillary Clinton had barricaded herself behind a wall of hipsters in pussy hats, where I am tasked with dragging her ass off to jail, this game can rot.
Look really good
Looks alot more interesting then the last 2 far cry games. I enjoyed 3, but had no interest in 4 and primal.
It goes without saying that this Far Cry looks spectacular. It reminds me more to GTA or Red Dead more than a typical Far Cry. This shift will be good for a saga which needed to contribute more appealings in order not to disappoint to their fans. Far Cry 3 was my last Far Cry. I lost the desire to play more Far Cry. Nevertheless this desire has come back to me!
It will be interesting to find out if they will have crafting. I mean it's not like it's in the wild. You can just jump a fence, basooka a cow and pick yourself up some leather and some beef steaks. LOL Or, you could just kill a Hill-Billy and strip him of his leather belt, hat and shoes. Like, I wonder what the loot will be.
Map Editor back, yea baby
Can I play as the body slamming congressman?
Far Cry 5, redneck creationist NRA member edition
I've only played 1 and 2. Loved the first and hated the second. This one definitely looks awesome. Kind of wish I would've played the third when I had a PS3.
I predicted the release date for this game! I said between the 20 and the 27th of February 2018. It would be 2 years since Far Cry Primal. I study the developer fiscal year.
I'm hoping the radio is more like what we would expect to hear in gta since this game is now American based - the ability to change stations would make this game for me
Farcry 3 and 4 are excellent. I never tried Farcry Primal, the idea of it just didn't appeal to me much. The original Farcry was good and blew our socks off when it was released as it had some of the best graphics out there. FarCry 2 was ho-hum, mostly because of respawning enemies pissing everybody off, but it was still decent.
Watch_Dogs seemed to understand the sacarin, hipster, hot topic crap in the sequel Serial killers who laugh and wear bright purple clothes over Aiden Pierce, someone who looks. And acts like a Serial killer? Not a good idea Now you get a choice of character out of 3.
i think this game rocks, def better than panties
2018, damn I was hoping for a fall release. why make a fuse for a game we cant play for over 8 months?
I agree. When I heard about a 'reveal' for Far Cry 5, I really thought 100% it was coming this year. Was very shocked to find out it's coming next year.
I never will understand why people like the Far Cry franchise. Probably the most overrated franchise in all of gaming.
That would be GTA actually
I honestly think Far Cry games suck. The gunplay is so slow and clunky...I just cant do it.
Meh😒 That game engine looks sweet tho
Its Farming Simulator ............with guns.
Looks better than anything naughty dog have done
