What Else to Expect?
Recently, it was confirmed that Ubisoft still has two unannounced AAA games for the fiscal year (before March 31, 2021), belonging to its established sagas. Could it be a new installment of Far Cry? On July 12, we will leave doubts.
Set for the first time in North America, Far Cry 5 gives players complete freedom to navigate a world that is both calm and deeply twisted, in the role of a new assistant to Hope County, Montana. Players will be aware that their arrival accelerates a conspiracy.
The conspiracy has been brewing for the past year by a fanatical doomsday sect, the Eden Gate Project. All of this leads to a violent assault on power across the globe. Players, embattled and with no connection to the outside world, will join the fight of the people of Hope County and form the Resistance together.
