It is clear from watching the new Far Cry 5 trailer that the game is taking the Far Cry franchise in a very different direction. While previous entries focus on violent battle, this entry seems to have taken a much more serene path.
Gone are the battles to free areas of the map, the skull piercing archery, and the “animals eating people’s faces”. Far Cry 5, with its move to Montana, looks to be almost a walking simulator, similar in mood and tone to Firewatch.
Just kidding, y’all. Check the trailer. This thing looks nuts. And there are totally animals eating people's faces.
Far Cry 5 will be released on March 27, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
