The marketing machine is in full swing when it comes to Far Cry 5, as Ubisoft has just released two more interesting promotional videos for the game. Together, they delve deeper into the bonus content that players can busy themselves with once they’ve finished the campaign. Hell, even before that if one pleases, or ends up picking the game up well after release.
The first of these two bullet-filled reveals is focused on Far Cry 5: Arcade, which evolves upon the series’ map editor in interesting ways. Through it, people can create their own single player, co-op and PVP maps, using assets from not only this entry, but also the other Far Cry games that came before it. Additional assets will be made available from Watch_Dogs, Asssassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed: Unity.
Custom content can be shared with others, through a robust system, and players can earn points that can then be used to upgrade and outfit their customized Arcade characters. You can see how all of that works in the included mixture of footage and developer interviews:
The second video, then, is all about Far Cry 5‘s Season Pass. Although its contents were previously announced, this new look goes deeper, by providing story details and brief spurts of gameplay from all of its included expansions. There’s lots to look forward to, too, as it all looks like a lot of fun.
For those who haven’t been paying close attention, the Season Pass will send players back to Vietnam, before they take a trip to space and fight against mutated insects on Mars. After that, they’ll be able to tackle waves of increasingly difficult undead with friends, in something that looks similar to Call of Duty’s Nazi Zombies.
Of course, the big one is Far Cry 3: Classic, which is expected to release sometime this summer. Through it, we’ll be able to return to one of the series’ best installments, and deal with its memorable and insanity-loving foe, Vaas.
Far Cry 5 will be released at the end of this month. March 27th, to be exact.
