‘Far Cry 5’ Lives up to High Expectations

Ubisoft has established itself as a publisher of very unique video games. The “Far Cry” series has been one of their most successful. There is a very good reason for this. The games that are in this series have a very high replay value. In other words, there are so many things to look at, explore and experience that playing these games just a single time is not nearly enough. “Far Cry 5” is the newest game in the series. It is just as good as the previous four. This is because the people who wrote and designed the game did not change their formula. They are simply giving people what they have come to expect. As long as they keep doing this, the series should be able to remain very popular.

“Far Cry 5” is a lot more difficult than the earlier games in the series. Some of the missions can only be completed if you are a very experienced gamer. Even if this is the case, it is still going to be a big challenge for you. To many people, this will be a huge positive. People these days do not want to spend their money on a game that will be too easy for them to beat. That will definitely not be a problem with this game. There are many things to like about this game. There is a special mode that allows you to hire people to help you out on your mission. The world that your character explores in this game is huge. Therefore, you will find an almost endless amount of options. There are so many different paths to take that it can get confusing at times.

It is very possible that there will be a sixth game in the series. This is because the end of the game is a cliffhanger that pretty much promises the story will be continued at some point. However, it will be a few years.

Far Cry 5: Ubisoft’s Crown Jewel in the Franchise

Since being released on March 27th, 2018, Far Cry 5 has already surpassed expectations from players, reviewers and activists alike. The Far Cry series has always been a first person survival shooter, set in a dystopian society, with the protagonist being the one to kickstart a revolution. Every Far Cry game usually takes place in exotic areas, such as Africa for Far Cry: Primal, and a make believe country in Asia called Kyrat for Far Cry 4. But Ubisoft has pointed its crosshairs at a dystopia in our own backyard: The United States.

Far Cry 5 drops you in Hope County, Montana, having you face off against an evil cult called Eden’s Gate, who controls the entire county with brutal authority. The main antagonist of the game, Joseph Hope, is a charismatic leader who is always used to getting what he wants, when he wants it. You are a sheriff deputy who was called to take care of the Eden’s Gate threat, not knowing they control a massive arsenal, and fanatic members willing to die for their cause.

Far Cry 5 has quickly become the best selling game in the franchise history, meaning the risk of setting it in America in such a tumultuous time in American history has paid off. According to this fan made infographic, people have gone crazy over Far Cry 5, and it shows how much of a labor of love this game has been. 90 fake brands were created for the game, and the cast consisted of 96 different voice actors.

In a time where triple A game companies have been criticized for selling the game, and then selling additional micro transactions inside of the game solely for more money in their pocket, without a meaningful experience, Ubisoft has gone against the grain.

Far Cry 5 is a new Height for Ubisoft

Ubisoft has just announced that sells of Far Cry 5 during its first week in stores has doubled the sells of Far Cry 4 during the same period. Only The Division has had a more successful launch in company history. Far Cry 5 is also doing very well on social media. Players have streamed over 55,000 hours on Twitch.

Far Cry 5 is a unique entry in the franchise. Previously, the Far Cry games took the player on an adventure to a foreign, fictional country. Players were dropped into war-torn areas and expected to survive the harsh realities of combat. Far Cry 5 is based in Montana, United States. This not only marks a return to non-fictional locations but enters America for the first time ever.

Just like previous installments of the series, players are allowed to freely roam the entire map. Players are not restricted to a linear experience as is with most military games and first person shooters, instead Ubisoft places players in their own version of an open world experience. Along with Bethesda, Ubisoft is one of the leading developers of open world games.
