Today, Ubisoft announced that a novel based on the upcoming Far Cry 5 will be coming out next year. The book, titled Far Cry Absolution, will release on February 13, 2018 and will be published by Ubisoft’s in-house publishing team while being distributed by Simon & Schuster.
“Far Cry Absolution gives fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in Hope County and learn the backstory and motivations of members of the Resistance that will join them in the battle against the Project at Eden’s Gate,” said David Bedard, Product Manager. “Far Cry Absolution also provides insight on the cult’s methods, and offers a chilling window into the effects they have on the local population.”
When released, the hardcover version of the book will release for $27.00, while the paperback will cost readers $9.99. An eBook version is also planned, though no word on how much it’ll cost. For more on the book, check out below, courtesy of Ubisoft:
Written by critically-acclaimed novelist Urban Waite, Far Cry Absolution takes place just before the events of the upcoming Far Cry 5 game. Nestled between the mountains and the plains in magnificent Montana, the small town of Fall’s End and its citizens are coming to grips with the growing presence of a fanatical cult in their daily life, the Project at Eden’s Gate. When the authorities refuse to investigate what happened to her parents and brother, local barkeep Mary May Fairgrave decides to take matters in her own hands. Up against an omniscient and dangerous adversary, Mary May stands little chance. But the unexpected intervention of long time cult member William Boyd will change her journey – as well as his.
Far Cry Absolution is slated to hit bookshelves on February 13, 2018.
