I thought they might be going the battle royal route and just making a big multiplayer only game using the same map layout. Either way for a $40 game and Ubisoft, it will be $15 by March

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

I'm interested but don't like the timing. February has Anthem and then The Division 2 about 3 weeks later (as of now). I like the concept with the after FC5 events and the setting is pretty good. And no doubt we'll see some interesting Animal Wildlife that's in the mix. But I'm looking forward to more co-op play after playing AC: Origins (which I'm still in) and God of War. Rage 2 is not till mid-May and that might help pull Bethesda's butt out of the Fallout 76 fallout....

Watching the trailer video... the last 10 seconds... might we play as Jacob Seed (I think that was the main baddie)?

Oh damn. I forgot about those. Unless this new one is just 10/10 great, I can't imagine picking it up anytime before Summer. But then Rage is out in May...

See you in 2020 Far Cry!

Well..I also forgot about Path of Exile which has been delayed to February also for the PS4. I play it on the PC but I know a lot of console (PS4) players who are Diablo Fans have had this on their radar to.

Pretty good article from Gameinformer up......12 Things To Know About Far Cry New Dawn

https://www.gameinformer.com/preview...r-cry-new-dawn

It does sound fun and some ways a bit different. Apparently you are not restricted to Montana....you can go other places as the article says in their case went to Louisiana for resources.

This looks fantastic, and I'm a sucker for anything Far Cry, so day 1 purchase for me.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

i don't get it. i thought this was after the events of FC5. and this nothing like that game at all. the style, look, gameplay. thought it would be pretty similar, but it looks so different...

In our house, my mom and husband are the only fans of Far Cry 5. I liked the Prey among FPS games.

It is after the events of FC5...17yrs after...and add the Nuke Explosion...which is sort of a spoiler sadly for those like me who never finished the first. Gameinformer has a good article up with a hands-on experience of the game and gives some insight of the changes...

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

There is also a crazy theory about Rook... I'm really looking forward to this game.

I saw something on a game site highlighting this and didn't want to read the story if it gave too much away....but the title was like "In Far Cry New Dawn, your character comes back but not like you think(and that might be a bad thing)"....which pretty much some of the hints and talk that FC:ND has more RPG elements in it than previous ones....which makes sense since here it's Poor Good Guy Locals, previous Bad Guys and New Bad Guys all at once....

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

on sale in the PS Store and it's worth it....and still have yet to finish it....but I had a better time in FC5 than FC4 and that was fun. It just seems there's more...wackiness gameplay. Having some special companions made it feel almost like having a co-op partner. Good solid game.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

Just started this ... it kind of just dumps you right in the game, but I didn't see it asking me for a difficulty level. Is there no easy option?

The opening scene is kind of depressing and bums me out. Is the whole game this serious?

Are you referring to FC5 or New Dawn?

Since FC New Dawn doesn't come out until tomorrow I'd guess he's asking about FC5

JB69: It's pretty somber mostly but has some funny parts as well. Can't believe you haven't heard about the ending yet - - avoid all New Dawn talk until you finish this one

Far Cry games are weird in that they always get easier as they progress and are hardest at the beginning Looks like they are finally fixing this in New Dawn.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

Ha! Just watched my partner try to get into this, and he died twice on the initial truck getaway scene and gave up. I don't know why these games throw weirdly controlled crap like that right in the beginning of the game.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

Just started playing some New Dawn. It's okay, more of the same really, but with crafting and scarcer supplies. Will probably make the game harder than FC5. Also they've embraced microtransactions which is a big-time bummer. I'm hoping it's mostly for cosmetic stuff like in AC, but I'm not sure yet.

Heads up : If you want to unlock the Ubi Club Space Force Vector gun, you have to watch certain Twitch streams between now and Tomorrow Morning and none are live right now It's really weird and annoying, but at least you have a heads-up now, Details here :
