new post on UbiBlog has details on Hope County, Montana, the setting of Far
Cry 5, accompanied by a
new trailer showing off gameplay in Holland Valley. The accompanying update
is lengthy, so here's a bit:
THE WORLD ON YOUR TERMS
The entirety of Hope County is yours to explore however you like, whether by
truck, on foot, in a helicopter, or in a plane. It also has what might be the
best twist on fast-travel ever, in that you have the choice to either teleport
straight to a destination, or to appear in the sky hundreds of feet above it,

There’s a lot to discover in Hope County, too; poking around its wooded trails
might reveal signposts that point to places to hunt, fish, or go skydiving.
Hidden prepper caches can yield piles of money and guns, but only if you can get
past their puzzles, challenges, or resident wolverines. You might even discover
a plaque commemorating the impossible deeds of ’70s daredevil Clutch Nixon, at

through sprinkler checkpoints that delay your inevitable explosion.

Pretty much. I definitely got that feeling from Primal, which is probably why I got bored of it so quickly. The Far Cry formula is getting stale. FC4 was the best one but at this point, I think they need to mix things up a lot more.
To be fair, Primal is probably the post-Farcry 1 Farcry with the most different gameplay. I got bored of it really quick too though. My favorites are in this order: 1,2,3,4... Not a good sign I guess...
