Ubisoft just revealed a brand new trailer for the upcoming Far Cry 5, and in it they revealed that full cooperative play would be available in the title. Not only can you do side-missions and explore with friends, but it also seems like you will be able to get through the main story with them as well.
While the trailer (above) didn’t showcase much that we haven’t seen from the game, it’s nice to see that the game will allow friends to pair up and explore all that Hope County has to offer together.
For more on Far Cry 5, check out our preview of the game from this past PAX West:
I did much better on my second attempt, as I took down the enemy aircraft in about a minute of action. The key was using my guns rather than the rockets my plane had. Once I figured that out, I was able to finish the final mission of the demo with ease. I saw a lot of variety in the 20-minutes of Far Cry 5 I played, and was really impressed overall.
From a gameplay perspective, Far Cry 5 largely sticks to what has worked for the series in the past. Despite a sense of familiarity, it manages to avoid feeling redundant thanks to a drastic change in scenery. The rural USA setting not only changes how the action unfolds, but it also worked to create a more grounded experience for myself. Hope County felt like many places I’ve been to, and seeing it overran by psychopath cultists really struck a chord. I’m excited to see how everything unfolds when Far Cry 5 releases next year.
Far Cry 5 is slated to launch on February 27, 2018.
