Worldwide reveal is on Friday, May 26th.

 

Thoughts, hopes, dreams? Personally I always enjoy a Far Cry game. It's such a smooth and coherent RPG experience. Not too casual to put me off, and not too complicated either. Not sure about the supposed "Montana" setting. I kind of wanted a more urban setting for once.

Yay!

I saw a rumor article saying Montana like 2 weeks ago.

Should be interesting. Gonna be a dental floss tycoon.

Oddly enough I've been enjoying FC3 through this past week and weekend. FC3=my favorite.

I'm tired of Ubisoft games, but if it's an open world western FPS I just might have to get it. I wanted it for so long. I only hope that Ubisoft learned a few lessons from previous installments because they were dull as f*ckin' dishwater. So many gameplay mechanics and simple gameplay elements that should have been available from the start were locked away behind an arbitrary upgrade system that existed only because somebody thought that every game needs such a system. It was poorly implemented. I hope they do away with all of that crap. There should be no stealth either. How many games that try to cater to every play style will the industry to go through before they realize that it doesn't work and that trying to cater to every possible play style results in mediocrity? I hope they just focus on making a visceral shooter set in a beautiful setting. That's all it takes, really. Simplicity is better than shallow appearance of complexity. At the end of the day it's only a shooter and that should be enough. Blood Dragon was small and simpler than Far Cry 3 and it was a much better game for it.

This looks already much better than anything I've seen of Far Cry Primal. They have my attention.

Looks like its a modern western, if the tone of the trailer is the tone of the game then sold if the gameplay improves on the formula without reskining it. A no country for old men with a cult style story is very interesting.

I'm not so sure it's a traditional wild west game at all. It looks a lot more dystopian horror game to me from what I've seen; uber conservative backroad rural America where the sleepy county is not all as it seems. The law using their power for no good, and abusing their traditional values. Something in the vein of Get Out, 2017.

Looks like the leak about religious cults was true.

Primal was a king sized FC4 add-on. Like Blood Dragons but extra long.

Not sure what to think of FC5 until we hear actual gameplay details.

Thoughts, hopes, dreams? Personally I always enjoy a Far Cry game. It's such a smooth and coherent RPG experience. Not too casual to put me off, and not too complicated either. Not sure about the supposed "Montana" setting. I kind of wanted a more urban setting for once. 

How the hell would that work? The whole point of Far Cry games is that you're alone in a wilderness setting and that you're far away from the hustle and bustle of large urban cities.

 

This has me interested. A lot more than Far Cry Primal, which I never ended up getting. The part where the guy is bashing the other guy's head on the large church bell while "Amazing Grace" plays background was really cool. Let's hope the entire game is filled with cool scenes like that. 


Also, this is the full trailer. OP only posted the first out of 4 clips. This trailer has all 4 clips together.

It's become a yearly franchise; a.k.a. we'll get no more good games.

Assuming you liked the ones that are considered good I mean.

 

Primal was the prime example of literally recycled trash.

This. 

 

We haven't seen anything yet. I wouldn't get too hyped too quickly. We know it's Ubisoft and they're good at making interesting looking games, sucking people in and not really delivering exceptionally good games. 

 

So far, I'm liking that it's in Montana (going to be a dental floss tycoon, as Trip pointed out :p) Other than that, we know jack sh*t.

so far, I'm not :/

I'm used to Far Cry being so exotic and distinct that this announcement is kind of disappointing. Montana doesn't sound exciting at all. especially if the setting is modern-day and not some other time in history.

 

but to be fair it's way too early to make a judgement call.

we need ingame footage. we need gameplay details.

Can't wait to hunt those huge wolves, grizzlies and the like. Don't care much about the story, the protag will probably be as dull as the previous ones.

To be honest, that's precisely why I'm interested. I enjoyed Far Cry 3, but I dropped Far Cry 4 only a couple hours in because it just felt so extremely similar to 3. Everything felt very "been there, done that" and made the game feel like a chore to play. If 5 had been another mid-20s-protagonist-in-a-foreign-war-torn-country setting, I would have completely ignored it altogether. I was already hoping for a Western theme for 5, but I think making it a modern Western is even better. Modern Westerns have been pretty popular in films recently, with examples like No Country for Old Men and Hell or High Water, but I can't really think of any games that have tried exploring that theme. I think it's pretty obvious that they're hoping to compete with RDR2 with this, and I think taking the modern approach was definitely the right way to differentiate themselves. They're still probably going to lose, but if they just tried straight up classic Western vs. classic Western head to head, they would get destroyed.

All that being said, though, it's still Ubisoft. I love the idea of a modern Western game, especially a modern Western open world FPS, but the fact that Ubisoft is behind it already has me bracing for disappointment.

I actually just picked up FC3 a couple days ago because it was on sale, and then this comes out.

 

Goddammit ubisoft stop toying with my emotions.

 

Also, was I the only one who enjoyed FC4? I know it can be dull at points and the game has the infamous ubisoft "Checklist" syndrome, but I have so many moments I remember from the game that made it so fun to play. Anyone remember the "Key to the North" mission? That was my favorite. Ram-raiding a military checkpoint in a burning fuel truck whilst this blared out of the radio was pure gold.

I actually thought FC4 was the better game. Mainly because it was my very first PS4 game and the graphics blew my mind.

My biggest problem with the two games is the second half of the game, where you think that an awesome second part of the map awaits you but IMO it offers nothing interesting. It's just there to give you a bigger challenge while the story goes downhill. It feels like a filler just to make the game longer. The story of FC3 could have ended with
Spoiler
but instead it just flips around and gets lame.

Well, it is set in a modern setting meaning that it will have a good amount of variety in guns. That is what I really miss in Primal and why I don't like it. They would have to screw up really badly for me not to enjoy a Far Cry in a modern setting.

To be honest I'm really excited by this. I've been a huge fan of the recent neo-Western/hicksploitation/southern noir revival including stuff like No Country for Old Men, Justified etc. It's potentially a really interesting setting, especially if they can pull off the whole survivalist/militia/Christian Identity cult thing effectively and maturely as a backdrop. Not something I'm really aware of being explored by game media as the focal point if a plot (though it's referenced in V extensively) but has been done consistently well in film and TV.

Plenty of scope for local hillbilly gangs, cooking methamphetamine in run-down trailer parkers and hunting humans in the woods.

I'm going to predict the plot right now, since it seems kinda obivous from the teasers and such.

 

You are going to play as a normal guy who is on a road trip or something. He traveling with his wife/girlfriend/kid/relative and their car breaks down in hope county. They recieve help from the locals, who seem nice enough, until the player discovers they are slavers/cultists/generally insane people. They capture the protag's person of interest, and they must fight back against said cult. You will recieve help from a small faction of people in the town who are not/slightly less insane, and you help them take the town back.

 

Anything you guys would like to add?

 

Also this looks to be set in modern day, as seen by the propane tank and powerlines seen outside the church in the church teaser.

I don't get excited over CG trailers, let alone live actions ones. Game could be good or it could be sh*t. I at least require to see some of it.

Since this doesn't appear to be set in the old west, I hope there are some power tools and farming equipment that we can use. A nail gun and a pitchfork would be fun weapons.

like they say

"one man's trash... another man's treasure"

 

i played all except FC4, and i liked them all, even primal, but no doubt the second one in africa was the best for me.

 

unlike you ill wait until the 26th to see more news before calling it a recycled trash just bcuz they now release a game per year

4-4-2-3 years in between.

Not exactly an "annual thrash"

 

Heck, AC was annual but still brilliant.

Oh nice, there are airplanes in the game. I loved the mini-helicopter in Far Cry 4 so I hope they will add that too.
