Ubisoft has officially unveiled the next installment in the Far Cry franchise, Far Cry 5. The open-world game takes place in the fictional town of Hope County, Montana, introducing new characters and a new threat in the form of a religious cult. The leader of the cult narrates throughout the trailer, which utilizes in-game footage to show off the highly detailed graphics. The trailer wraps up with the cult leader preaching in a church to his followers, sporting a trendy man bun. Ubisoft describes the premise as such:
When your arrival incites the cult to violently seize control of the region, you must rise up and spark the fires of resistance to liberate a besieged community. Freely explore Hope County’s rivers, lands, and skies with the largest customizable weapon and vehicle roster ever in a Far Cry game. You are the hero of the story in a thrilling world that hits back with every punch, and where the places you discover and the locals you ally with will shape your story in ways you’ll never see coming.
