The video game development firms across the globe are trying to introduce games with epic storylines and visual effects. Ubisoft has found a way to enthrall the audience by offering an exceptional story, impressive action moments, and amazing visual effects. It is offering Far Cry 5, which is a first-person shooter game. This action-adventure game was developed by Ubisoft Toronto and Ubisoft Montreal and published by the same company. You can play this game on all the famous gaming platforms such as Xbox One, PS4, and also on the PC. Ubisoft has launched this game on 27th March, 2018 and therefore the gamers across the globe are getting curious about it. Let’s find out how this game performs.

All the incidents of this game will take place in an imaginary Hope County, Montana. There is a charismatic preacher, known as Joseph Seed. He is operating a religious group known as The Project at Eden’s Gate. His cult is dictating the in-game region. The US Marshals along with the local sheriff arrives to detain the preacher. He was accused of kidnapping and harming people. Joseph does not refuse to the arrest, but he says the god will never let him get arrested. As the officers arrest him and escort him towards the helicopter, the members of his religious group attack the officers. The US marshals helicopter gets crashed and Joseph runs away. Now he is leading the cult members to capture the surviving officers and exterminate them.

Now an unnamed junior deputy will work to save the surviving force and liberate the county. He will take the support of local resistance to destroy Joseph Seeds and his cult. The story is quite interesting and so the gameplay. Therefore, you are going to enjoy every moment by playing this game.

Same as the previous installments, Far Cry 5 offers a lot of action and adventure throughout the gameplay. This first-person shooter features an open world environment that you can explore without any restriction. You get various vehicles to travel across different destinations in the game. You can also walk barefoot if you want. The character customization feature is new and this feature was not available before in other installments of Far Cry series. Here you get a set of prefab characters and you can also create or customize the protagonists according to your requirements.   

When it comes to the weapons, this game features some really destructive weapons. These weapons will help you in destroying and exterminating deadly enemies throughout the game. This game is quite different from the previous installments not just because of player customization feature, but also because of the variety of weapons available now. The close quarters combat will seem more amazing this time. The ballistics systems are going to thrill every player. You can drop the bullets over a very long distance along with deadly bombs. Things are going to be quite realistic in this game and therefore it is worth playable.

The recruitment system is a key element of the gameplay. You can hire locals in a village and fight with them against powerful enemies. This system is similar to the buddy system of Far Cry 2 and Guns for Hire system of Far Cry 4. The players used to request the local inhabitants for joining the fight in the Guns for Hire system. That old system is no more available. The new recruitment system is far better than what you got before. Now the lead character will establish new relationships with the locals to unveil new missions and also to recruit them for the fight. It is going to be quite an amazing experience for every gamer because this new feature is awesome.

Another crucial part of the game is taming the wild animals. The Fangs for Hire system was originally introduced in the Far Cry Primal. Do not take it like you are going to tame a cute dog. You will get various deadly animals that will assist you during the combat. These animals will follow your orders and attack the targets.  Other features of the game include fishing, map editing, and multiplayer objectives. All in all, this game is a great combination of action and adventure games that will entertain you throughout the gameplay.

Graphics and sounds:

Only a few video game development firms have succeeded in offering what Ubisoft is offering in Far Cry 5. The graphics are simply exceptional. Whether you are playing this game on Xbox One, PS4, or on the PC, everything will seem quite real. The characters appear like real humans and animals. The whole setting of the county is quite frightening and every action sequence seems alive. There are weapons and actions look quite realistic and entertaining.

Dan Romer has written and composed the music for this game. The audio director Tony Gronick says that the team wanted to use the music in the backdrop throughout the gameplay, but it did not work. They tried to expose the cult’s nature and messages through the backdrop music. This game’s hymn-like gospel music is used to endorse Joseph Seed’s Cult’s end-of-the-world preaching. The background music will change as the lead character will visit different regions. There are special sound effects used to make every moment feel natural and thrilling.

We would like to make it clear that we liked everything about this game. There is nothing that you will feel missing. However, still focus on a few key points to ensure you are choosing a right game.

  • A vast open world to explore and enjoy the game.
