Far Cry 5 Gold Edition includes the base game, in digital format to be downloaded from the Ubisoft games platform or from Steam, depending on the version purchased. It also includes the Deluxe Bonus Pack, which is made up of different bonuses for weapons and vehicles. The fifth episode of the Far Cry franchise takes place in Hope County, Montana, land of the free and brave but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult known as Edens Gate.
Confront cult leader Joseph Seed and his brothers, the Heralds, to light the fires of resistance and free the besieged community.
What perfect videogame comfort food for at least, say, another 205 days.
Even if we ignore the ridiculous quantity of content, and we focus only on the main storyline, we still get an amazing experience. Far Cry 5 is not the game we expected, but it’s exactly what we should have wanted in the first place.
Far Cry 5 is mechanically sound and varied. You’ll find something that entertains you, and Ubisoft has nailed all of the underlying elements of character and world progression. At the same time, it squanders some decent writing because it can’t decide what kind of game it is.
Far Cry 5 is looking really unique. The world, the cult, and the gameplay are solid and fun.
The wonderful chaos of the open world and your choice of how to tackle it is occasionally stifled by bad boss fights and worse boss speeches.
All in all, the duo multiplayer experience of Far Cry 5 is fantastic. The aesthetics alone manage to overshadow the frustrating mechanics that the game brings to bear and keep us wanting to play...If you’re looking for a fun, engaging, exciting game to play with a partner, this is definitely one to try out. Let’s hope that the games industry creates more partner play experiences for those who love to game together, but not necessarily in huge piles.
The ambitious setting doesn't pay off in this story that seems to want to hedge every chance it gets. The end result is a story that goes nowhere, says nothing, and fails to live up to the previous settings and villains in the franchise. If you can get past that... the rest is pretty much fine if you're up for another Far Cry game.
