Far Cry: New Dawn blasts into the post-apocalypse in February

That post-apocalyptic new Far Cry teased earlier this week is Far Cry: New Dawn, Ubisoft announced tonight, a standalone sequel to Far Cry 5 set after seventeen years after that game's nuke-slinging ending. It'll send us roaming the colourful wasteland of Hope County and beyond to thwart a vicious gang of raiders led by twin sisters by doing the usual Far Cry explore-o-craft-a-shooting. What you…

Far Cry goes post-apocalyptic in next game

It's looking like the next Far Cry is going to be set after the end of the world. Teasing a full announcement for The Game Awards tomorrow night (which Alice Prime will be burning the midnight oil to cover), the trailer below gives us a little taste of the things to come. Ubisoft manage to hold back from declaring that 'war never changes', but that…

Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies shambles out alongside a New Game+ mode

Zombies, like ants, get everywhere. Unlike ants, they're the subject of Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies, the shooter's third and final DLC. It came out two days ago but I bet YOU didn't know that, and I bet the promise of seven self-contained action movie scenes from various apocalyptic scenarios sounds alluring. Maybe. I might not bet much. Ubisoft have also chucked in a…

Far Cry 5’s final, zombie-themed DLC lurches into view on August 28th

While Far Cry 5 was a solid open-world shooter (if you could switch your brain off whenever it tried delivering another wave of plot), Ubisoft just haven't been sticking the landing on the DLC. The first two thirds of the season pass - a Vietnam war themed expansion, and a mission into pulp sci-fi territory on Mars - just haven't lived up to their concept,…

Far Cry 5 battles spiders from Mars (sans Bowie) July 17

Good news: We're getting away from Far Cry 5's daft cults to battle alien spiders on Mars using zappy laser weapons. Bad news: Far Cry's increasingly tedious Hurk is coming along for the ride. Ah well, you can't win them all. Next week, Far Cry 5 receives its second (and perhaps most interesting) piece of DLC from its season pass. Lost On Mars is enough of…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Flash! Bang! Wallop! Far Cry 5 adds photo mode today

Lay down your guns and pick up a lens. Stop shooting faces and start shooting landscapes. Look away from that sniper scope to peer down a telephoto zoom. Stop murdering, you chuffing rotters, I'm saying, or at least take better screenshots. A free update for Far Cry 5 today adds a 'Photo Mode', letting would-be war photographers pause the game and be whisked away to…

Far Cry 5 fan map takes us back to Jurassic Park

I was not the biggest fan of Far Cry 5. I found it fun-ish if deeply to completely flawed and if I ever have to do a Pilotwings mission in a sandbox murdersim again I'll lose my mind. Also, I'm pretty tired of killing dogs and I'm equally tired of drug addiction as a trope to motivate bad guys in games. I have thoughts and…

Far Cry 5’s Vietnam War story DLC is should be out now

The Vietnam War is the unlikely setting for Far Cry 5's first DLC, released today, through far stranger is yet to come. The 'Hours Of Darkness' stars Wendell Redler, the fella in the main game who sends us on a thrilling fetch quest seeking a dozen cigarette lighters, as we revisit a terrible time in his 'Nam days. Given the sensitivity and insight with which…

Far Cry 5 trades up cults for the Viet Cong this June 5th

While visually and mechanically impressive, it's not hard to argue that Far Cry 5 lost the plot a bit regarding, well, plot. A confused mass of nondescript, non-denominational cults with no clear ideology, and a stinker of an ending soured many on the otherwise-solid open world shooter. With the upcoming DLC - each one a self-contained story in a new setting - Ubisoft have a…

I had to slaughter far too many wolves to try out Far Cry 5’s new shovel launcher

I was surprised to learn that Far Cry 5 has 'live events'. They're fairly unimaginative challenges that appear once a week, and usually get you to kill/destroy a certain number of 'X' thing with 'X' weapon. Until yesterday, they only rewarded you with a unique cosmetic for items that can be bought in the game with far less faff - but the latest one gives…

Wipe those tears away: Far Cry 5 released

After years of gallivanting around the world, Far Cry today settles down for a quiet life in small-town America. Far Cry 5 launched in the wee hours, the latest in Ubisoft's open-world sandbox shooter. This time, the mince plot is about saving Hope County in Montana from a naughty cult by wandering, driving, flying, swinging, and wingsuiting around while shooting faces and catching fish. We…

Five in-game cults that are a far cry from Far Cry 5

Cults in games have a long, proud tradition of getting to go full wackadoo. Mostly, they're a really nice device to lean on, especially in a game where you want to fill the world with collectibles and audio logs and you need some narrative to build that space. Also, they're pretty easy in that, if you don't give a flip about collectibles, you can generally…

Far Cry 5’s map editor includes bits from Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs

The Far Cry 5 map editor will include bits and pieces from other Ubisoft games, Ubi announced today, which should let players create places far beyond rural America - and the modern day. A number of assets from Watch Dogs, Far Cry 4, the prehistoric Far Cry Primal, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (the pirate one), and Assassin's Creed Unity (the French one) will be…

Far Cry 5’s DLCs will fight zombies and Martian spiders

Though Far Cry 5 looks like it'll offer plenty of silly open-world shenanigans, no matter how serious it pretends its doofy story is, the DLC will go extra hard on wacky. Ubisoft on Friday announced the game's obligatory DLC season pass, and it seems they're channeling that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon B movie spirit again. Three DLC episodes are coming, with one fighting zombies,…

Far Cry 5’s latest trailer shows more culty shenannigans

There's less than 2 months to go before Far Cry 5 swoops onto our screens and I can't think of a better way to celebrate that fact than to watch a story focused trailer. Actually I can, and that would be to watch a trailer that just shows someone mucking around with wingsuits, bears and rocket launchers instead, but we can't always get what we…

Ubi announce bear necessities for Far Cry 5 on PC, inc 4K specs

It's been a long time since Far Cry games were how you gave your PC its fiercest work-out, but hell, old habits. Ubi have just put out system requirements for March's Montana-set Far Cry 5 and they're pretty reasonable, in the main. Basically, if you have at least a GTX 670 or R9 270 you're getting in the door, though if you want to crank…

Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 delayed, says Ubisoft (quietly)

US-based shooter Far Cry 5 and accidental transformers racer The Crew 2 are both delayed, said Ubisoft last night, in a quiet voice. They announced the delays in the middle of their own livestream for Beyond Good and Evil 2 and shortly before the flash flood of news brought on by the Game Awards threatened to drown us all in release dates and trailers. There’s…

Far Cry 5 gameplay vids show off sandbox goofiness

Apparently it is possible to drive a tractor and sneak up on baddies then mulch them mulch with its fearsome mechanical teeth in Far Cry 5 [official site], or at least it is in the new gameplay footage rumbling out of Gamescom this week. Even more importantly, the open-world FPS has a fishing minigame. You might have known this from poring over previews but I…
