Far Cry 5 takes players into the heart of Montana in the fictional Hope County. A militia led by a fanatical religious leader has overtaken the area and it's up to players to rid Hope County of this dangerous threat. Given the militia's overwhelming presence in the area, that's a tall order. Luckily, it's not one that has to be tackled alone.
Ubisoft showed off a gameplay walkthrough demonstrating how players can use guns-for-hire, such as Grace the sharpshooter, to aid them during missions. Grace eliminated targets designated by the player from afar and even called out unseen enemies closing in on the player. Boomer, the player's canine companion, can be ordered to attack foes and fetch weapons. When air support is needed, pilot Nick Rye can fly in on his biplane and unleash a hail of gunfire upon targets. Those who prefer a more personable touch of assistance can have their friends lend a hand with missions online.
Far Cry 5 hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC February 27, 2018.
