STATES CHRONICLE – Ubisoft has recently revealed the upcoming title ready for release, Far Cry 5. They also launched a teaser trailer which confirms the previous rumors, and sets the action of the game in a remote area of Montana. The trailer fits pretty well a recent leak on Reddit, which presented the latest Far Cry game as different.
The teaser trailer for Far Cry 5 is out
The teaser features the main character of the game, which is a regular young man who went in search for a job along the remote and grassy plains of Montana. Also, the opening credit of the trailer, which writes “Welcome to Hope County, Montana”, confirms the rumors related to the setting of the action.
Last year, a Redditor claimed to have been part of a focus group where he found out detailed on the new Far Cry. He wrote an elaborate post on what this next title would be about, and some of the information fits what was presented in the teaser.
Religious extremism in the new title?
The Redditor claimed that the action would take place in present day America, in Montana. Also, he said the protagonist would become part of a religious cult made up of people preparing for the apocalypse. Therefore, he said gamers would benefit from modern weapons and vehicles, and would explore the grassy fields and the mountain slopes of Montana.
He claimed that he watched some promotional videos which brought a highly religious take on the game. For instance, after the main character wandered around in an empty town, he found a church full of people staring at their rabid leader holding a weapon in one hand and a Bible in the other.
These rumors circulated last year, so Ubisoft might have changed some elements in the game until now. However, such a scenario sounds more than plausible for a Far Cry game. All gaming enthusiasts don’t have to wait long, as the full worldwide reveal comes on May 26th.
