FAR CRY 5: HOURS OF DARKNESS LAUNCHES ON JUNE 5

Travel from Hope County to Vietnam in Far Cry’s First DLC Adventure

SAN FRANCISCO — May 24, 2018 — Today, Ubisoft announced Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness, the first post-launch adventure, will release on June 5 across all platforms. The first DLC will transport players back in time as they play Hope County’s Wendell “Red” Redler, who must find and rescue his fellow squad members from hostile forces during the Vietnam War. Hours of Darkness can be purchased as a standalone DLC for $11.99 USD or as part of the Far Cry 5 Season Pass for $29.99 and Gold Edition for $89.99.

Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness transports players into a war-torn Vietnam as they relive the harrowing experience of Wendell Redler from the main campaign of Far Cry 5. Playable in solo or online co-op, Hours of Darkness transports players from rural Montana to a dangerous jungle where they must rescue imprisoned squad mates, wreak havoc on the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army, and fight to get back home by any means necessary. This first DLC adventure will feature new gear and abilities as well as two different playable modes that will be unlocked after completing Hours of Darkness: Survivor Mode, giving players a limited loadout for a more challenging playthrough, and Action Movie Mode, where a generous loadout delivers over-the-top action.

In addition to the DLC, all Far Cry 5 players will have access to new Vietnam-themed assets in Far Cry Arcade available on May 24 with the release of title update (TU) 6, the Vietnam Update Map Builders will be able to integrate these assets into their existing maps or create new maps focused on the Hours of Darkness theme. All future DLCs will also include thematic assets that will be added to Far Cry Arcade for free.

Alongside today’s title update, Ubisoft released the soundtrack for Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness, available here: <217d>https://idol.lnk.to/FarCry5_Hours_of_Darkness. Composed by Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire, Gallows, Black Lungs) and Andrew Gordon Macpherson. Driven by fear, confusion and violence, the music takes us on a journey into the madness of war. With the participation of renowned multi-instrumentalist Kim Uyen Le, Wade and Andrew have created a sound palette that blends traditional Vietnamese instruments with hypnotic, late 60’s psychedelic soundscapes, gritty vintage electronic textures, and pounding rhythmic patterns.

Far Cry 5 post-launch will continue with two new DLC adventures – Lost on Mars and Dead Living Zombies – which will be released in July and August of this year. Two additional asset drops will give map builders more tools to create unique Far Cry Arcade experiences. The DLC adventures are available in the Season Pass, or as standalone DLC purchases, while new asset releases for Far Cry Arcade will be available for free to all players.

Set in America, a first for the franchise, Far Cry 5 offers players total freedom to navigate a serene-looking yet deeply twisted world as the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana. Players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden's Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. Far Cry 5 will continue to receive premium DLC adventures available in the Season Pass as well as free content including new Far Cry Arcade assets and in-game live events following the launch.

I wonder if any of this DLC will be good. I still have about a 1/3rd of FC5 to complete. Been taking my time with it. May wrap it up this weekend.

About the game

    MrWhite @MikeManiac61: almost as if they should have went with that pacing and tone to start with? For some mad reason, reviewers are using that as a stick to beat it with. (16 minutes ago)

    alimokrane @Moonwalker: haha, it's not the spike ones. It's the holes with the spikes. After your trigger them and move forward you forget they are there and fall into them on the way back haha (12 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Maybe I should actually get back into PUBG. The reasons I stopped playing had more to do w/ my clan than the game. (17 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm more critical on it than most but I still kinda miss the Blackout beta if I'm being honest. (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @alimokrane: Damn, you died at the traps? But you can always see the line which you can cut :) (22 Hours ago)
