Far Cry 5 is easily one of the most anticipated games of this year. The new story, along with the traditional action-packed gameplay, has me eagerly anticipating the launch in a few weeks. As we get closer to launch, Ubisoft announced some information about the Season Pass and upcoming events to celebrate the launch of Far Cry 5!
First, let’s talk about the Season Pass. The Season Pass will include 3 pieces of DLC:
- Hours of Darkness: Players will travel back in time to Vietnam to battle against Việt Cộng soldiers and save their fellow soldiers
- Dead Living Zombies: Players will team up with friends to fight waves of zombies across seven different scenarios cooked up by a b-movie director
- Lost on Mars: Players will leave Earth behind to go toe-to-claws with martian arachnids to save Earth from an alien invasion
Don’t forget that Season Pass owners (consoles only) will receive Far Cry 3 Classic Edition. The Classic Edition will eventually be available as a stand-alone purchase this summer, but it will be available for Season Pass holders about 4 weeks before the stand-alone version is released. PC players will receive Far Cry 3 at a later date.
Ubisoft also announced information about Far Cry Arcade, which will be available for all Far Cry 5 players. The arcade is a map editor that will deliver an endless amount of free gameplay and map creation opportunities for players. Far Cry Arcade will include assets from previous Far Cry games as well as other Ubisoft titles, including content from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Unity, and Watch_Dogs, that can be used to make solo, co-op, and PvP multiplayer experiences.
Finally, Far Cry 5 will also host Live Events that reward players with new customization items including unique vehicle and weapon skins for completing different challenges as they explore Hope County.
I honestly wasn’t planning on buying the Season Pass. But after today’s announcement, it would be worth the extra cash. Far Cry 5 launches March 27th. You can preorder at your local retailers or digitally right now!
