Far Cry 5 Arcade Impressions
In addition to what so far looks to be an engaging open-world campaign in Montana, Far Cry 5 will also sport an arcade mode featuring a level editor and 6-on-6 PVP multiplayer. I was able to test out Far Cry Arcade at the same Ubisoft event where I got to preview the main game. I was not prepared for what I witnessed.
Far-Cry 5 Hands On Preview
Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5 is less than a month away, and I had the opportunity to return to its rural open world at a preview event. For those unacquainted, Far Cry 5 takes place in the fictional Hope County, Montana. Joseph Seed, also known as “The Father,” has taken over the land with his cult, the Project at Eden’s Gate. His siblings John, Jacob, and Faith – the “Heralds” – each control a region. You play as a junior deputy who is tasked with helping the resistance put an end to the cult’s influence.
Far Cry 5 Preview
I had the opportunity to play Ubisoft’s upcoming Far Cry 5 at a preview event. The demo took place after the liberation of Fall’s End (previously seen at E3), so I had free reign to explore the Holland Valley region, a massive landmass covering about a third of the game’s world. Creative director Dan Hay emphasized that in that region alone, there were 10-15 hours of narrative content, not including the roughly 30 additional hours you could spend exploring it.
