Far Cry 5 Editor and Season Pass Details

A new post from Ubisoft takes a look at post-release content plans for Far Cry 5 and what will be included in the season pass for the upcoming first-person shooter sequel. The season pass will include three DLC packs, and this trailer takes a look at what to expect from them. Word is: "Picking up the Far Cry 5 Season Pass will grant you access to three new adventures: Hours of Darkness, Lost on Mars, and Dead Living Zombies. In the first, Hours of Darkness, you'll be thrown into war-ravaged Vietnam and have to fight your way through enemy forces, rescue POWs, and try to evac amidst the chaos. The second, Lost on Mars, will see you traveling to the red planet to wield futuristic weaponry in a jetpack-fueled fight against insidious aliens. Last but not least, Dead Living Zombies places you and a co-op teammate at the whim of a B-movie director, who cooks up seven different scenarios that pit you against hordes of undead horrors." They also offer this look at Far Cry Arcade, the game's map editor mode, and how closely it will integrate with the game. This trailer looks at that, and here are more details:

Far Cry Arcade is Far Cry 5's map editor mode, and it's bigger, more versatile, and more packed with content than it's been at any point in the series' past. The first Far Cry map editor to enable players to create their own solo, co-op, and PvP levels, Far Cry Arcade is a chance for players to crack open the game and use its assets to build their own customized adventures and experiences. Far Cry Arcade's goal is to make these custom maps as accessible as the campaign, and one way to accomplish that is to integrate them directly into Hope County and your character's progression.

"We've really pushed hard this time to make it a much more integral part of the Far Cry experience, and to really give it its own identity," says Clark Davies, lead game designer on Far Cry Arcade. "We're going to make sure it's more visible than ever. Not just in our menus, but in the campaign itself. We're going to put arcade booths all around our campaign world in places where it makes sense. And then on top of that, there will be posters all over the game world, which will be simple portals to quick-launch you into our best featured maps."

Walk up to an arcade machine in a bar, for example, and you can jump straight into Far Cry Arcade, check out the latest user-created levels (which will be curated by the developers), and start playing. You'll visit these worlds as the same custom deputy you play in the campaign, and any experience points, perks, or money you earn while playing will cross over into the campaign when you're done. (And no, that doesn't mean you can just create a "level" filled with cash and make yourself rich.)
