The announcement fills in the details, and also includes a bit on the next DLC
Today, Ubisoft announced Far Cry® 5: Lost on Mars, the second
post-launch adventure, will release July 17 on available platforms. Lost on Mars
continues the uncanny adventures in the Far Cry 5 Season Pass as players travel
to Mars to eradicate an alien threat. Lost on Mars can be purchased as a
stand-alone DLC for $9.99, as part of the season pass for $29.99 or the Gold
Edition for $89.99.
Lost on Mars transports the franchise’s insanity from Hope County to the red
planet as Nick Rye is teleported to a hostile planet to help his buddy Hurk
thwart an alien invasion of Earth. This adventure gives players a new arsenal of
alien weaponry, including the Blaster of Disaster, Hellfire and Morphinator,
while also introducing a new traversal tool with Space Jets. Humankind’s future
is in the hands of the game’s most notorious guns-for-hire. Time to squash some
In addition, all Far Cry 5 players will have access to new Mars-themed assets in
Far Cry Arcade, available now. Map builders will be able to integrate these
assets into their existing maps or create new sci-fi-themed maps. Future content
will also include thematic assets that will be added to Far Cry Arcade for free.
Those who download the Lost on Mars DLC will also gain access to new weapons –
Obliteratorrrr, Taser Phazer Annihilazer, Nerve Reaper, Grape Popper and
Hellfire – to use as they liberate Hope County from the Project at Eden’s Gate.
Far Cry 5 post-launch will continue with a final DLC adventure – Dead Living
Zombies – which will be released in August. An additional asset drop will give
map builders more tools to create unique Far Cry Arcade experiences. The
adventures are available in the season pass or as stand-alone DLC purchases,
while new asset releases for Far Cry Arcade will be available for free to all
players in future title updates.

FC5, while I love the story, it's just kinda meh.
I felt like the story was a huge half-assed letdown after the last two.
So was much of the combat. Everything just became too easy. And simplified. You never found an enemy with anything other than the starter weapons in each class, and didn't really need to upgrade your own beyond those, anyway. Everything felt so similar.
The last DLC had some good ideas (how did I not realize your friends had permadeath until it was too late?) but wasn't excellent. I mean, I finished it, but mostly because FC5 was too dumb to include a NG+ option, so there was NOTHING to do after finishing the story mode.
Don't get me wrong, I still had a blast with it, but it was much less interesting than the last 2 FCs.
