Far Cry 5 Wiki (Walkthrough and Strategy Guide)
This is a Far Cry 5 Wiki and Strategy Guide page containing walkthroughs, strategy guides, tips and tricks for the new action first-person shooter game developed and published by Ubisoft for the Playsation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. It is set for release on February 27, 2018.
The Far Cry series has been well-known as one of the most popular first-person shooter franchises in video games, giving rise to several sequels and spinoff titles since its debut in 2004. Far Cry is known for giving players a unique action experience in exotic open-world environments, among them Micronesia, the Himalayas, Africa and Central Europe.
Far Cry 5 will be the eleventh installment to the long-running series. Announced in May 2017, the game takes place in present-day Montana in the fictional Hope County. Players follow the story of a sheriff’s deputy who unknowingly becomes caught up in a dangerous clash between a sinister cult called Eden’s Gate and the resident of Hope County who claim that their loved ones have been kidnapped or killed by the cult. Eden’s Gate is led by a preacher named Joseph Seed who foretells of an “inevitable apocalypse” and vows to lead the people to salvation.
As an open-world title, players will be able to explore the various locations of the game using different vehicles such as muscle cars, all-terrain vehicles, boats and planes. A recruitment system similar to Far Cry 2‘s Buddy System will allow players to recruit locals in the county to fight alongside them, though each potential ally will have to be convinced first and vary in terms of personalities. The Fang for Hire System introduced in Far Cry Primal will also be included in Far Cry 5. This lets players tame wild animals that can also assist him or her in combat.

- FPS Combat
Far Cry 5 continues the series’ well-known FPS-centered gameplay set in an open-world environment. Gun battles are still as immersive as before and the player will have access to a wide arsenal of weapons as the previous titles in the series.
- World Exploration
Far Cry 5 allows players to travel around Hope County in a variety of ways. Various cars are a staple of open-world games set in modern times. However, it will be interesting what other vehicles will be accessible in the game. The image on the left depicts the player flying a classic fighter aircraft and is engaged in a dogfight against an enemy.
- Leisure Spots in Montana
Aside from the main storyline of the game, Far Cry 5‘s massive rendering of Hope County will be filled with various mini-games and leisurely activities. From the image above, players will be able to go fishing at a lake and even take their dog with them.
- Taming Animals
Similar to the Fang for Hire system in Far Cry Primal, Far Cry 5 will make use of this interesting mechanic to tame and train certain animals in the game. Tamed animals will then be able to fight alongside you, or may be of some use outside of battle.
- Deputy Sheriff (Protagonist)
In Far Cry 5, the protagonist is a Sheriff’s deputy tasked with investigating the mysterious cult known as Eden’s Gate who have are reported to be kindapping and killing residents of Hope County. Players will be able to customize their character using the new creation system. There is, however, some irony in having a character customization feature in an FPS game.
- Joseph Seed
The leader of Eden’s Gate and a self-proclaimed savior, Joseph Seed is not at all what he seems or claims to be. Behind the messianic facade lies a demented and ruthless man bent on controlling the minds of the people of Hope County. To accomplish his goals, he is assisted by his siblings who he refers to as “The Heralds”.
