Far Cry is a series that continues to impress time and time again, bringing in terrifying villains who defy the world we know, giving us more than just a small chip on their shoulder, but a true sense of real-world terror. The Mandalorian and Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito set to play the main antagonist.
Pros: +Extremely well-designed gameplay that balances free roam and story-based exploration rather well.
+Gunplay is the best it’s ever been causing shots to feel as if they have meaning.
+Characters are well rounded and developed, easily making them relatable to someone you may know in real life.
+Companions are actually enjoyable to obtain and even more entertaining to have around.
Con: -Money earned is problematic as it does emphasize upon players taking time to fish and hunt or playing the Far Cry Arcade.
Since Far Cry released on PC, I’ve taken to the wild adventures Ubisoft has put before me, often lying traps where my enemies can’t see them, shooting large groups of hostile forces, commandeering a vehicle when completely necessary and even taking the time to enjoy the splendors of the worlds put before me. It’s the go-to engine that has always worked for the franchise and continues to do so even now.
Since its launch Far Cry 5 has been considered the best titles in the franchise, selling double the copies of Far Cry 4 in a single week, making Far Cry 5 the fastest selling title in the franchise. Ubisoft has confirmed that digital sales have accounted for more than 50 percent of the titles total sales and has marked itself as the publishers second biggest title yet, leading the $310M sold in the first week to Tom Clancy’s The Division, which launched merely two years ago and is preparing for a follow-up title later in the upcoming days.
The reviews are finally coming in and it looks like Far Cry 5 is starting to finally get the round of applause fans of the long-established series have been waiting to see. With nearly four years since our last modern endeavor into the troubles of the world caused by notorious villains.
With only a few weeks left until the launch of Far Cry 5 on March 27, 2018, Ubisoft has disclosed information regarding the post-release plans for their upcoming titles.

As we quickly approach the release of Far Cry 5, Ubisoft is once again ramping up their hype campaign for one of 2018’s most anticipated games, and over the next few days and weeks left until it launches, we have a massive surprise headed our way: a Far Cry 5 short- film known as Inside Eden’s Gate, that will give fans of the Far Cry series their first look inside the mind of cult leader Joseph Seed.
