Far Cry 5 is another downloadable title (after Far Cry 4 and Far Cry Primal) which belongs to the already iconic series of action-adventure games. The game was released on March 27 and is available on Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The developer of the game is Ubisoft Montreal. Far Cry 5 belongs to the FPS genre, although in this installment you will often fight with melee weapons. The game has been released in many different versions, which differ with regard to the in-game gear, such as early access to good weapons or unique skins. You can also receive Season Pass (which will grant you free access to upcoming DLCs).
Of course, there are also collector’s editions with various gadgets, such as figurines of the characters from the game. For example, the Deluxe Edition of the game includes a .44 Magnum Handgun and an AR-C assault rifle, both with unique skins and two additional packs. Ace Pilot Pack contains a gun skin and a helicopter with an aerial force outfit, while Big Game Hunter Pack has a bow, an ATV and a big game hunter outfit. The Users of the Gold version receive the abovementioned goodies, as well as MBP Sniper Rifle and Season Pass. Additional gear is fun and useful as first-person shooter games (FPS) focus on the fight with the use of weapons, mainly firearms.

Hope in the United States
The setting of Far Cry 5 is the state of Montana in the US, and the main character is an FBI agent who is just starting his or her professional career. As a player of Far Cry 5, you start your adventure in the fictional Hope county. It is at this point that the FBI agent finds out that the idyllic life of the people is threatened by the fanatical worshippers of Eden’s Gate. The chief bad guy is the charismatic cult leader Joseph Seed, with whom you will have to fight many times. He is a false prophet and a preacher of the impending apocalypse and will abuse his followers to succeed with his plans. He will try to convert the rest of the world to his faith and then naturally take over the world as befits a bad guy. This is where you as an FBI agent must step in and thwart these evil plans. This will, of course, not be an easy task as you will also have to face the Heralds – the siblings of the antagonist.
Your Goal Is to Defeat the Cult of the Eden’s Gate
Your first tasks will be choosing your character. For the first time in Far Cry series you decide on the- gender, skin color and the general appearance of your character. Immediately afterwards, you will move to this fictional land full of fields, meadows, and towns. As an FBI agent, you will face fanatics and try to defeat Joseph.
The game features an interesting cooperation mode with NPCs, thanks to which tasks can be performed alone or in cooperation with other heroes. Far Cry 5 allows recruitment of helpers who will support you in your fight with the doomsday cult called The Project at the Eden’s Gate.
In the game, you can use quads, tractors or airplanes and fight with a reliable bow or heavy rifles and explosives. The freedom to choose terrain or battle tactics is an additional advantage of Far Cry 5. Thanks to this, as a player you have total influence over the course of the action. In addition, any action that you will take will move the story forward. So this means true freedom of choice in an open world. The choices you will make will have an impact on the world your FBI agent lives in.
The natural wild fauna and flora of the American countryside in Montana is another thing you will love in Far Cry 5. Hunting, wandering or searching through these areas, you can come across bald eagles, grizzly bears, elk, bears, wolves, coyotes, moose, cougars, bison, deer, owls, skunks and many more.
