Hello there, my friends. Another trailer has been released and I’m gonna talk about it!
So we have gotten our first trailer for “Far Cry 5”, the seventh installment in Ubisoft’s first person shooter series. And yes, you read that right, the game with a 5 in the title is the seventh one. Because between “Far Cry 4” and this one, we had “Far Cry Primal” which was set 10000 B.C. And after “Far Cry 3” we got a spin-off game called “Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon”, which lampooned 80s sci-fi/action movies, going so far as to star Michael Biehn. Now, weird release order aside, let’s talk about the game at hand, “Far Cry 5”. This game will be set in the fictional Hope County, Montana. Which of course means that it’s the first “Far Cry” to be set in the United States. And it seems like the villains of the game will be a group of crazy cultists who forces any person around into their religion. Now, there was a teaser image that was released the other day which sparked some controversy (found at the top of this post). I think the main thing about that controversy is that crazy antagonist(s) of this game seems to be white, “christian”, Americans. To those who say that this is a bad move by Ubisoft, go fuck yourselves, it’s just a game that is about a specific group of people, and not about EVERY white American christian out there. Sorry about that rant, people who have common sense, but I had to get it out there. Now, while this trailer is made to look as cinematic as possible, I can still imagine that the game can and will get as crazy as the trailer makes it out to be. I mean, I have played the shit out of both “Far Cry 3” and “Far Cry 4”, and times could get crazy in both of those. So yeah, this will probably get crazy, especially with gun-crazy Americans who also happen to be religious fanatics thrown into the mix. So I’m quite excited. “Far Cry 5” is set to be released in February of next year.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited for “Far Cry 5”? And have you played any of the previous games? Leave any and all thoughts in the comments!
