Far Cry 5 – Story Trailer and Season Pass revealed

Far Cry 5‘s release date is drawing close (March 27th – mark it on your calendars) – so now seems like a great time to give more insight on the story, and talk a bit about what’s coming post-release.

Let’s start with the story trailer – featuring beards, bears, explosions, trucks, quad-bikes and so much more.

Appetite suitably whetted for the main event, let’s dive into the game’s substantial Season Pass.

First up, there’s the critically acclaimed Far Cry 3 – in which Jason Brody goes on a holiday from hell to the Rook Islands. When a sky-diving trip goes pear-shaped, Brody and his chums find themselves stranded on a hostile island, kidnapped by the charismatic / psychotic pirate-leader Vaas.

PC owners who purchase the Season Pass will get the full original version of Far Cry 3, while console owners will get Far Cry 3 Classic Edition (since Far Cry 3 was never released on current-gen console formats) – featuring the full single-player experience.  Far Cry 3 Classic Edition will be available as a stand-alone purchase on console four weeks after it becomes available for Season Pass holders.

Next up, there are three entirely new adventures ready to take you far away from Hope County.

Hours of Darkness. Travel back in time to the Hours of Darkness, and battle guerilla Vietcong soldiers.

Dead Living Zombies. Face off against the undead hordes in Dead Living Zombies multiple B-movie scenarios.

Lost on Mars. Travel to the red planet and battle ferocious Martian arachnids.

We’ll have more on all the post-launch content in the run-up to Far Cry 5’s launch on March 27th.  Meanwhile, check out our previous coverage for more on the game, and stay tuned for all the latest.

Welcome to Hope County, Montana. This idyllic place is home to a community of freedom-loving people - and a fanatical doomsday cult known as The Project at Eden’s Gate.
