New “Far Cry 5” Trailer, Release Date Set

Ubisoft has announced a February 27th 2018 release date for “Far Cry 5,” the next chapter in the long-running first-person shooter franchise.

The new entry forgoes the exotic locations of the previous games in favour of ‘Hope County,’ a small town in the U.S. state of Montana where religious delusion and nationalist dogma have led to ‘Project at Eden’s Gate,’ a militaristic doomsday cult control led by a charismatic but dangerously zealous young preacher seizing power.

You play a junior deputy new to the force who must gather a resistance to oppose the Project’s further expansion. You can check out the game’s new trailer below:
