Far Cry 5 story trailer drops ahead of March release

Gaming / PC / PlayStation / Xbox

Far Cry 5 was supposed to be out later this month but a few weeks ago it was announced that it was delayed until the end of March. It’s not the first game to suffer delays, and most likely won’t be the last but personally, I’d rather have a solid launch release as opposed to post-launch bug patches to fix issues that should have been taken care of before launch. But I digress… Ubisoft just dropped a fantastic looking Far Cry 5 story trailer ahead of the games March release. While we’ve previously seen tidbits including character introduction videos, it’s always great to see story trailers for these types of games.

In case you’re still unaware of the story behind Far Cry 5, Ubisoft sums it up nicely. Of course, summing up an Ubisoft game in a couple sentence rarely does it justice so watch the story trailer above to take in the insanity and action.

The Project at Eden’s Gate, a doomsday cult led by the charismatic Joseph Seed, has taken over Hope County, Montana. The Father and his zealous followers are obsessed with “saving” as many souls as possible — willing or not. You must spark the fires of resistance and bring the fanatical cult to justice.

Far Cry 5 releases on March 27, 2018 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. In case you missed the recommended PC specs and system requirements, Ubisoft has released those as well.
