By now we are no strangers to the very over exaggerated (though somewhat accurate) representation of the rural northwest that FAR CRY 5 is set to depict. Recently they released a new trailer detailing the story we should come to expect from the next game in the franchise.
Welcome to time where a resistance is being mounted against Joseph Seed, the leader of a Doomsday cult named "The Project at Eden’s Gate". In Hope County Montana he controls much of the local government, and its people, and it is up to you and the resistance to stop him.
Some things that really stood out to me in the trailer were the fact that you can run over people with tractors. There was something about the visual that provided that got me excited for the action that the Far Cry games usually bring.
For those interested in knowing a little more about the game and what it has to offer, here are a few key elements that the game hopes to achieve:
Far Cry comes to America in the latest installment of the award-winning franchise.
Welcome to Hope County, Montana. When your arrival incites the cult to violently seize control of the region, you must rise up and spark the fires of resistance to liberate a besieged community.
Freely explore Hope County’s rivers, lands, and skies with the largest customizable weapon and vehicle roster ever in a Far Cry game. You are the hero of the story in a thrilling world that hits back with every punch, and where the places you discover and the locals you ally with will shape your story in ways you’ll never see coming.
SPARK THE FIRES OF RESISTANCE AGAINST A FANATIC CULT:
Stranded in hostile territory, find strength in the community around you to lead a resistance against a cult taking over Hope County, Montana.
CARVE YOUR OWN PATH:
The freedom to go in any direction – you decide the when, the where, and the how.
From the moment you enter Hope County you have the freedom to tackle the world in any order you choose.
A WORLD THAT EVOLVES
Play your way against Joseph Seed and his fanatical followers in a dynamic open world that adapts and reacts to the choices you make.
Tear up the countryside in iconic American vehicles you can make your own; from muscle cars to big rigs, from ATVs to tractors.
This trailer makes me pretty excited for the game. I have played pretty much everyone of them so far, and besides Blood Dragon, and Primal this looks to be the most fun yet in my opinion. Are you excited for the game? What things are you wanting to see in Hope County? I would love to hear your thoughts!
