Far Cry 5 [2018]

Recommended Posts

Yep, this looks pretty great.

ok so curiously and honestly: what exactly looks so great about it?

 

this trailer didn't really do anything for me.

pretty graphics. but what else is new.

 

we're just going to be shooting a bunch of rednecks in the backwoods?

I'm not particularly sold...

It's already the closest thing we've had had to a coherent story driven narrative in a Far Cry game since 2. It's a better setting and background than most titles I've seen recently.

 

The one thing that FC games have consistently got right is enjoyable gun play. It looks very pretty. I'm not worried about these things. The setting so far has me interested, especially given the utter drivel of 3 and 4.

Who doesn't want a game about killing a bunch of redneck cultists? They're essentially the new Nazis without the burden of the WW2 setting. It's brilliant.

Outlast 2 was just released, seems a bit soon to go with a redneck cult who thinks the end times are upon us route.

fair enough.

'story' is usually pretty far down on my list of concerns. can't argue that the setting is gorgeous. I'm sure the gunplay will be solid as usual. I dunno. the trailer didn't have much 'wow' factor. I was really hoping to jump on the bandwagon but so far there's no excitement in me. I don't see what you guys are seeing I guess. it doesn't look bad by any means but "great" is not the first word that came to mind after this big reveal.

 

granted it's still pretty early...

prove me wrong! it's not like I want to hate this game. I want it to be good.

"brilliant?" really?

you know I'm on your side of the fence generally speaking but suddenly we're conflating rednecks with Nazi's? is Montana the new Germany? I didn't get the memo, I guess. unless we're just looking forward to Far Cry bottling up our Trump-rage and feeding it back to us :pp

I'm excited for the premise but I'm a little let down by the art direction. It looks a little too bright and happy for my taste. It know this will contradict my thoughts on other subjects. For example in Scarface or Vice City I like the dark side of Miami with the juxtaposition of these drug lords in Hawaiian sh*ts with palm trees and beautiful sunsets but from this FC5 trailer, I get a strong sense that they they should have done some colour grading because now that their seems to be a more coherent story as sivis put it, which I'm all for.

 

From the trailer, I think there's a blurring of lines between movie and videogame. The trailer is adopting cinematic style over gameplay style but not adapting a cinematic colour-grading effect which usually helps deliver tone and sets mood. It's pretty much Los Santos, sunny day colour palette or like any comedy in the sun. I don't know if it wants to be serious or if it's just tongue-in-cheek. If it's the latter then I think it's wasted opportunity.

 

**.... After re-watching the trailer a couple of times, maybe it's the music that's just not setting the tone. For example, the RDR2 trailer, they really gave us this nice introduction that felt kind of serious, dramatic and gave us a sense of something beautiful but something kind of thoughtful, hanging in the shadows. This Far Cry 5 trailer kind of gave us some silly hilly billy music but for me gave me mixed messages about the tone of the game. I get they could have been going for the jovial music with with the dark over tones from the various soundbites. It's a nice mix like say The Smiths have dark lyrics with happy music. I just think it's a bit confusing as to what it wants to be be.

 

I'll use True Detective of a good example of something that deals with similar themes but sets tone and mood using colour grading, desaturation of colours (maybe) and use of cloudiness/weather to convery mood with and greys and more muted colours and then sombre, ambient music that becomes very dramatic, It definitely knows what it is. This Far Cry 5 trailer is almost in the GTA 5/Buddy-cop style of music.. but the subject matter is supposed to be something a little more serious and dark but I'm not getting that at all.

 

 

 

I want to like this game. I'm generally favorable of most games that make the effort. I'm just being skeptical and can see more potential. It's basically not selling me how I should feel about this story. The music is almost comical, the visuals are bright and sunny. But maybe, even just for the trailer, they chose to show some dead wood, some withered trees, bad weather, something that conveys something more sinister. It doesn't need to be spelled out to us.. just little things that make up something that might be a little dark and gritty.

I'm on the negative side too, looks like the same game in a slightly different setting with terribly flat characters (the hunting also made me sigh as that's clearly going to play a big part again).

 

I am curious about the motives of the "cult" and characters though, I mean from the trailer it just seems like they just shoot random people for no reason and even go out of their way to find and kill other people and the resistance is like; "they shootin' people, let's shoot 'em!". It's a shooter, so whatever, it fits, but meh.

I'm not comparing them ideologically. It's about the fun factor. Nazis wouldn't be so much fun if they weren't so famous, if their evil wasn't so recognizable. They were so over-the-top evil all the way down to the way that they dressed. And you don't feel any guilt mowing them down by the thousands because of it. Redneck Christian cultists are the in that same ballpark. They're fun because of how insane they are, how crazy they look and how familiar they are. That's what makes them interesting. They're not generic. It's hard to find a more entertaining human enemy IMO. Aside from the main antagonists in FC3 and FC4 the enemies were pretty generic and forgettable.

I was wondering this too. It looks like they're litterally forcing people in to their cult from the trailer. I know it might seem trivial but I always thought that cults were more scary on the fact that people were willingly there. They're there on their own accord and not just because someone held a gun to their head and says "now you're one of us" kind of scenario. Although I've only this trailer to go on and I'm completely speculating on not much info.

Seriously? All we have to go off on is not even a 2 minute trailer and you've already come to the conclusion that every character in the game is flat and boring? Jesus Christ (no pun intended), wait for the game to come out and give it a try first before you already start criticizing the characters in the game. It honestly just seems like you're trying to come up with reasons to hate the game.

Live action trailer, in-engine trailer, CGI trailer. The marketing they're doing is pretty terrible.

 

I think the last time I got hyped about a Ubisoft game was when Watch Dogs was announced. The game was kinda average.

It's about time they knocked it off with that tower sh*t, it was a feature they abused for way too long and with too many games, they should've kept it for Assassin's Creed only.

Now if the characters are as vibrant as the colour gamut, I'll be sold.

I'm pretty excited for this. I'd still like to see some gameplay before I get "too hyped" but it sounds like they haven't strayed too far from the formula and the formula works for me.

 

I wonder how deep the animal taming will go this time. Being able to tame and ride Saber Tooth Tigers was one of the sillier parts of Primal in my opinion. I'm hoping for 5 that they tone it down and maybe it's just dogs and horses you can tame.

 

With the character customization, I hope they got male and female voice actors rather than us just playing as a mute like some sites are suggesting. Being able to customize your character doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me if you don't have a voice. It being a first person shooter means you typically hear your character far more than you ever see them.

I've never played a Fry Cry game before, but the premise and setting of this one certainly has me intrigued. This could very well be a day one purchase for me.

One thing I've noticed is that alot of people are missing the point of the storyline completely. Since the trailer release I have seen dozens of people on Facebook thinking that the game is about fighting against right wing 2nd amendment thumping extremists when it actually looks for like a branch davidians style cult to me.

I think many veterans might be disappointed that there's going to be one bad side and one good side which we will most likely join. Like I said, I only tried out FC2 but FC4's choice dillema wasn't as dull as some people think. I really had trouble deciding as both ways the story could go had their good and bad sides. There's no way we'll be joining the cult of FC4. Maybe the rebels will split into two groups?

Yay!

 

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

 

Should be interesting.

.

 

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

I get what you mean. I mean i only played FC2 and FC3. From my experience, FC3 had the best SP; FC2 had the best map editor. Im very excited for FC5. It will be Red Dead's strongest competitor.

I am going to give my honest opinion about this game. I have always been interested in watching documentaries about Hardcore cults like "The Peoples Temple" founded by Jim Jones.

 

There is one town in Arizona called Colorado City where all their residents are members of edgy cult and everybody follows what the Prophet tells them to do. The Prophet, Warren Jeffs, is currently in Prision for life after abusing little girls and children in general. The police department in that town, obey directly from the prophet so yeah.

 

So back OnTopic, I can see Far Cry's 5 story mode happening in real life USA, so i am quite hyped.

 

I would love to play as the Cult rather than the rebels against it. But you know, it is what it is. You always have to play the "Good Guy" and kill the "bad guys"

New trailer. How to youtube tag it?
No new footage, just a guy sharing some details behind the idea of FC5.

The main motive of the prophet got me fully convinced. I'm a sucker for end of the world conspiracies.

I like what he's saying. I'm surprised they're giving away so much info so soon.

 

So guns for hire is going to be a feature but at first they may be distrustful. I'm guessing the people you meet will ask you do tasks to build trust so they join your resistance. Sounds interesting.

I like Rockstar more in that regard. They threw info not so often, but when it actually drops people are more excited. And they don't leak the whole damn game before it releases. So much info about a game available at once threws me off and if I don't want to watch I feel like I'm missing on something and when the game drops I feel like I'm playing 2 year old game. Like you know, nobody is really excited about playing old games that everybody besides you already played - I feel the same thing when starting up Ubisoft games for the first time even if it is premiere day. People who watched all those trailer know more about it than me and it just feels unexciting.

Character creation, Customisation, open world?

 

I was a bit meh; I never played FC before but the world alone looks like going to bring myself a good GRW continuation. The things I said above just seals the deal.

 

I feel like the dev makes quite a sharp turn here. I expect yet another why-it-isn't-like-before and this-isn't-farcry type of bitching throughout FC5 year.

Just recently played Far Cry 3 for the first time and even now I can say it's one of the best games I have ever played. I was blown away that I've never played it before.

 

Pretty damn awesome Far Cry 5 got announced merely days later, haha what a goddamn coincidence. Still need to buy Far Cry 4 and beat it before this one comes out but I've got plenty of time.
