Hope to hear from you

Now Far Cry 5 has broken cover, we know it's coming on release date 27 February 2018 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. But that's not all we know. Take our brisk tour of Far Cry 5 trailer, with the most important first details about Far Cry 5 gameplay.

The globe-trotting Far Cry franchise has racked up more air miles than the Sultan of Brunei's private jet, landing this time in the Northwestern United States, in Montana, in a place called Hope County, where the locals might be farming their land in peace if there weren't a Far Cry going on.

Instead, a well-armed doomsday cult by the name of Eden's Gate has the population under the thumb, led by Far Cry villain du jour Father Joseph Seed, who you as deputy sheriff have been sent to arrest.

Far Cry 5's deputy sheriff protagonist is, for the first time, a customised character, in a story campaign that is, for the first time, wholly open to co-op play.

Add to that an animal taming mechanic a la Far Cry Primal, and a bundle of flying vehicles to get around turbulent Hope County, and you've got the beginnings of a whole new Far Cry. Get a glimpse of what's to come in the Far Cry 5 teaser trailers, trailers, screenshots artwork in the video above and leave your impressions in the comments, why not.

Far Cry 5 comes out on release date 27 February 2018 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
