Far Cry 5 – Meet the Father, and visit Falls End in a gameplay walkthrough

“I want to introduce you to Hope County, Montana,” intoned Hay, “vast, beautiful, rugged, a place where people don’t even lock their front door anymore. But, that’s how it used to be. Today Hope County’s been overrun by a fanatical cult. You find yourself trapped deep in cult territory, cut off from the rest of the world. They’ve closed the roads. There’s no cellphone signal, no 911. People are fucking scared.” He likes a well-placed swear, does our Dan. “And just up ahead, the small town of Falls End has been completely overrun.

Far Cry 5 launches on February 27th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Check out our previous coverage here, and stay tuned to UbiBlog for all the latest Far Cry 5 news!
