Far Cry 5 Launch Trailer Introduces Players to the Project at Eden’s Gate


Far Cry 5 lands tomorrow on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and a new launch trailer gives an eye-opening view to Project at Eden’s Gate’s tyrannical hold on Hope County, Montana.

The trailer, which clocks in at two minutes and 25 seconds long, introduces players to Jacob Seed and his three siblings, who run their religious cult with violence, intimidation, drugs, and an intense prediction for the end of the world. It’s the player’s job to liberate Hope County from the cult’s hold, using whatever means necessary to do so.

Oh, and there’s plenty of means. The trailer shows off players using guns, planes, explosives, helicopters, animals,¬†and more guns to deal with the cult menace. Expect to have everything from pistols to grenade launchers at your disposal, letting players bring the fight to Hope County’s cult at its front doors.

Far Cry 5 has been long-awaited since its reveal last year, in part because of its somewhat controversial themes. The game tackles American religion and contemporary politics as a backdrop for its story, albeit its developers stress that the game isn’t necessarily a “political commentary” on the United States.

Not just that, but Far Cry 5 also promises over 25 hours worth of gameplay in single-player alone, which is sure to delight fans looking for an extensive open-world adventure. The game’s trophy list has since been revealed, too, and it includes some extra hints about what players can suggest when the game launches.

Check out Far Cry 5 for yourself by midnight on March 27. The game launches simultaneously for all three platforms.
