Far Cry has been a pretty successful series for Ubisoft and it doesn’t look like they are going to stop any time soon. We’ve known that there would probably be a Far Cry 5 in the future. That was confirmed last week. And this week, the hype train seems to be gathering steam.
Last week, Ubisoft announced Far Cry 5 by posting a tweet with the following picture of the title that raised more than a few questions.
What time is it set in? Where does the game take place? Does the red, white, and blue mean it’s in America?
Rumors were floating around not too long ago that Far Cry 5 was to be a western. Which would put in direct conflict with Red Dead Redemption 2. That was eventually shot down however, so the question remained, what do we know about Far Cry 5. Not a whole lot.
That changed earlier today though as Ubisoft released a series of 4 live action teasers that answer at least a few questions.
Here’s the teasers put together. It’s actually pretty creepy. Serene country side broken by violence.
So that answers a couple questions I guess. At least in the location. It does indeed take place in the U.S. More specifically the fictional Hope County, Montana. It also looks to be somewhat modern judging by some of the clothes worn by the people in the trailer.
Just to add fuel to the fire, Reddit user FarCry5-throwaway recently posted a bunch of supposed spoilers a few days ago. Apparently, he participated in a focus group that ended up being for Ubisoft and Far Cry 5. Whether that information is true or not remains to be seen though.
Of course with anything of this nature, you’ll have to take it with a grain of salt. But some of what he posted does line up with some of the official information we now have about Far Cry 5 such as being set in modern times. You’ll have to judge for yourself though.
Luckily, we’ll be finding out more information very soon. Ubisoft also announced a full reveal this Friday, May 26th. So we’ll be getting some solid information that may or may not verify the rumors. Either way I’m interested to see what’s to come.
Are you interested in what they have to announce? Do you still like the Far Cry series? Any theories on Far Cry 5?
