In Far Cry 5 players may also access the new Mars-themed assets in Far Cry Arcade, which are available now. As revealed before, Map builders will be able to integrate these assets into their existing maps or create new sci-fi-themed maps.

There’s more stuff here, people. Ubisoft revealed that they have also launched the Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars soundtrack. The have described the OST as “a funky, sci-fi, 70s-inspired spaghetti western track list created and performed by film composer Anthony Marinelli. Marinelli used his original vintage analog synthesizers from iconic films Young GunsStarmanWar Games and Michael Jackson’s Thriller, as well as sci-fi orchestra riffs, baritone guitar, banjo, dobro, wah guitar and funky bass lines to get players grooving with the spiders on Mars.” The Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars OST can be grabbed here.
