Far Cry 5's Montana Setting Revealed

UbiBlog promises more details about Far Cry 5 on Friday, and in the meantime, offer a new teaser trailer showing off the game's setting of Hope County, Montana. This runs about 41 seconds, but there's also a this video which adds three additional teasers to total 2:30. These clips might suggest that the new installment in the action-packed series will involve harvesting fields or fly fishing, but the placid environments may also confirm rumors the game will have a western theme to match this western locale. Here's word on the plan to reveal some details this week: "We’ll have a lot more to say about Far Cry 5 this Friday, May 26 – but to whet your appetite (and because we’re terrible teases), here are a few brief postcards from Montana’s beautiful Hope County, pulled together into a single teaser video."

It's a good thing I didn't try FC2 even though I got it for free. I loved FC1. I still haven't finished Crysis 1.

You just described every Far Cry from 2 onwards.

Huh, no love for FC4, eh? While I can probably safely get away with saying nearly everyone loved Blood Dragon, including myself, (how can you NOT like it? It has Michael Biene Beinn Bean Been Biehn! And he didn't die this time...unless you suck ) but I really liked FC4. The music, the setting, the atmosphere, the story was even ok. I loved Pagan Minn, though his behavior off-screen in voice-overs vs in cutscenes was sometimes jarringly different. Like they did them two months apart without knowledge of each other. The ending, if you don't kill him, 'The country is yours...but I'm keeping the helicopter' just had me sitting laughing as he went off for the last time, debating whether I should shoot him down in the last second just for more laughs. 'The fuck you are!'.

While the FC3 weed mission and accompanying rap reggae was pretty memorable (I have it on my mp3 player in the car and relive it each time I listen to it), the music was more subtle and emotional in FC4, at least to me. They were more concerned with eliciting an emotional response more than just run and gun. That's evident at the end when you finally find out what Lakshmana really is. The music, the environment...after all you'd been through...it was almost as good as going through Dying Light (with the exception of The Following's absolutely hideous and awful ending that I refuse to except).

I haven't played much of The Witcher 3, to be honest, but I plan to. Maybe it'll become a new fav. But for now, FC4 and Dying Light sit there and it'll take quite a bit to move them. Maybe FC5 will be as successful. One can only hope.

I loved FC4. So much more than 3. Better plot, and the gyrocopter/grenade launcher combo was ridiculously fun. Towards the end I was ready to be done with the FC3/4 formula, but 3 wore out its welcome sooner (its second island was unexpected to me, and I was ready to be done by it.)

TW3 is one of the best games I've ever played. Did it in January or February, and was thoroughly enthralled. But FC4 is pretty high up for me. Also, I actually hated Blood Dragon. It stripped out the interesting parts of FC and left eye-searing red everywhere. Everywhere! Gimmick setting aside, the gameplay was just an incredibly boring and repetitive version of FC.

I'm excited for the controversy of the new setting. While I'd wager they're going after everyone to some extent, I'd also wager the bulk of this is aimed at hyperconservative militias. I mean, it's Wyoming, it factually has hyperconservative militia groups, but doesn't factually have a significant amount of hyperliberals. Would not be surprised to have the main character be one, perhaps native American, or if they didn't learn their lesson from FC3, an obnoxious privileged white college kid that everyone finds at least slightly off-putting and Ubi later claims was a parody that went over our heads.

Yeah everyone hates the FC3 story. I think it might have been the best. I don't think I'm super smart or anything, and maybe I am reading into it, but I thought the douchebags in FC3 were awesome. The heroes journey was all about that kid realising what a douchebag he and his friends are and how he was starting to enjoy the murder (Which seemed a pretty cool mirror to games in general, the same theme drove Hotline Miami).

I thought it was fine, frankly. The guy was douchey, but it wasn't at all a game-breaker for me. Lots of my friends are douchey, so...

I like the new theme. The jungle themes just didn't do it for me in the previous games.

Funny, that was their entire appeal. Remember how fresh and new the original Far Cry was because it was finally brightly colored, non-urban, wide opened FPS gaming? I didn't much care for FC3 but I did like the setting.
I should have clarified I meant in the last 2 games.
Far Cry 1 and 2 I did like. The last 2 just didn't interest me at all.
I agree with you on the too many games to play though.

That said this setting looks quite good too. Color me intrigued... but not intrigued enough to actually play it. Too many other games to play. Like Witcher 3 for the third time.

Nowhere does that say " in-game footage" , so I am highly suspect it will look that good ...

Well, it does look pretty credible. For example, the tall, green grass in that scene where the guy gets shot is twitching in the same retarded spasms as the vegetation in The Witcher 3. Look at it. It does not sway gently and smoothly back and forth but it's totally exaggerated and retarded.
That part definitely looks like it is in-engine and using the same shitty physics implementation for the vegetation as The Witcher 3.

Still, this game will probably be worth 30 bucks for the mood alone. Here's to hoping they feel like trying something new gameplay wise.

The only thing worse are Blizzard games.

I beg to differ. Blizzard's skinner loops are addictive and fun. For a while at least. Ubisoft's skinner loops are tiresome and dull. I don't know why that is, but I think a lot of gamers would agree with me on this.

All fluff, no substance or gameplay.

I mean, you've been following games a long while. Or any other media. Announce trailers never have substance. Ever. They're fluff. They're so far out they're just setting a mood and nothing more.

It's exactly the same for movies.

Gotta admit though, that graphics engine is looking top notch.
