The jury is still out on whether the game will deliver an interesting story, but what we do know about the fast-approaching sequel tells us we're in for a typically insane experience.
Ubisoft revealed the plans today for post-launch content for its upcoming first-person shooter, Far Cry 5, which comes out on March 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It's madcap, but not in a bad way. "The idea behind Far Cry Arcade is infinite content and we are going to keep adding to this after the game is released".
Far Cry Arena will feature around 7000 objects and will include assets from Far Cry 4 (including yetis) and Far Cry Primal, as well as Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin's Creed Unity, and Watch Dogs.
You'll also be able to create playlists, play official creations, and engage in all-new modes.
Walmart is launching its own meal kits in some stores
The Walmart website has an expanded assortment of meal kits and other specialty items like snack boxes. Consumers can either buy directly in store, or order kits online and pick them up later that day.
As for the rest of Far Cry 5's post-launch content, it includes the introduction of Far Cry Arcade and limited-run challenges in the form of Far Cry 5 Live Events. Will you be playing this side of Far Cry 5? Arcade seems to be the secret to make Far Cry 5 a long term experience in which players will always find an exciting new mission to complete long after they have finished the main story. Using the game's own assets, players can customize and create unique maps that are integrated directly into Hope County and tied to your character's progression.
And if all of that isn't enough for you, how about a free game? According to the publisher, Far Cry 3 Classic Edition will be available to season pass holders on consoles "four weeks prior to launching as a standalone purchase in summer 2018". PC gamers will receive access to Far Cry 3 sometime after the launch.
One of the features in Far Cry 5 that hasn't been discussed yet is Far Cry Arcade.
