UBISOFT REVEALS IT POST LAUNCH ROADMAP FOR FAR CRY 5
Ubisoft hit the ground running in February with their Season Pass announcement for Far Cry 5 which included details on their Zombie, Vietnam, Space warfare and Far Cry 3 Classic Edition which you can read all about here. But the one thing they decided to keep a secret was the return of the map editor until now which has been renamed Far Cry Arcade.
We’re barely a week into March and not only do we get two new trailers but also more details about the often rumoured Arcade map editor. The map editor will get constant update from the Ubisoft team which will take the shape of additional objects from various Ubisoft franchises and developer made maps which will all be created using the map editor tools that will be readily available to everyone with no additional charge and you won’t need to be a season pass holder to access it. Can you imagine the madness that the community will be able to create when these tools get into the hands of the fans.
But what if you don’t want the Season Pass? Well your not going to be left out in the cold. Ubisoft have also taken steps to include free content for both Far Cry 5 and Far Cry Arcade. Starting in April within the world of Far Cry 5 Ubisoft will host live events within Hope County. Following that every Friday will be Far Cry Arcade Nights. We don’t know the details regarding these events but with mere weeks before the game launches you can bet it won’t be long until we find out.
You can read the press release below and ogle at some new videos and screenshots.
Today, Ubisoft detailed a bevy of post-launch content, including three DLC adventures in the Season Pass and free content for all with Far Cry Arcade and live events, coming to Far Cry 5 following the launch on March 27th.
Players who purchase the Season Pass or Far Cry 5 Gold Edition will continue their uncanny adventures in three pieces of DLC: Hours of Darkness, Dead Living Zombies and Lost on Mars.
- Hours of Darkness: Players will travel back in time to Vietnam to battle against Việt Cộng soldiers and save their fellow soldiers
- Dead Living Zombies: Players will team up with friends to fight waves of zombies across seven different scenarios cooked up by a b-movie director
- Lost on Mars: Players will leave Earth behind to go toe-to-claws with martian arachnids to save Earth from an alien invasion
Additionally, all Far Cry 5 Season Pass owners playing on consoles will receive the single-player content from another critically-acclaimed Far Cry series entry with Far Cry® 3 Classic Edition, which will be available to season pass holders four weeks prior to launching as a standalone purchase in summer 2018. PC players will receive the full version of Far Cry 3 at a later date following the launch of Far Cry 5.
All Far Cry 5 players will also have access to Far Cry Arcade, the evolution of the map editor that will deliver an endless amount of free gameplay and map creation opportunities for players. Far Cry Arcade will include assets from previous Far Cry games as well as other Ubisoft titles, including content from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Watch_Dogs, that can be used to make solo, co-op and PvP multiplayer experiences.
Finally, Far Cry 5 will also host Live Events that reward players with new customisation items including unique vehicle and weapon skins for completing different challenges as they explore Hope County.
