On October 31st 2017, Ubisoft announced more details on their beloved FPS Far Cry 5‘s multiplayer mode
Ever since its 5th installment’s reveal back in May, almost every Far Cry fanatic has been tapping their foot impatiently, waiting for February 2018 to arrive. Every now and again, French publisher Ubisoft gives a sneak peek into Far Cry 5, like they did during their conference at E3 2017, for instance.
Yesterday, Ubisoft dished more on the Far Cry 5 co-op mode, titled “Friends For Hire”, where you can cooperate with a friend to protect and liberate Hope County from the Project at Eden’s Gate cult. Far Cry 5 is set in Hope County, Montana – an isolated cult territory lead by “The Father”. Your objective throughout the game will be to join forces with fellow rebels in order to overthrow the cult and its leader.
According to Ubisoft’s press release, Far Cry 5 can be played in online co-op mode, where any XP or items collected in-game during the campaign will be carried forward post each co-op session. Moreover, only co-op host players will be able to maintain and advance through their story progress. There are two options for the host to pick from: either “Guns for Hire” or “Fangs for Hire.”
Far Cry 5 will be released on February 27th, 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Xbox One S.
