Far Cry 5's Vietnam-era 'Hours of Darkness' DLC coming June 5

Ubisoft announced today that Far Cry 5 will be headed back to the Vietnam war on June 5. Alongside a short teaser trailer, the company revealed Far Cry 5's "Hours of Darkness" DLC will be rolling out on June 5.

It's hard to know exactly what to expect based on the 38-second trailer, but one thing's for sure: it looks pretty brutal. According to the description, players will be tasked with escaping from behind enemy lines in "war-torn" Vietnam on a mission to get their squad to the extraction zone.

Far Cry 5 launched in March and is the first entry in the franchise to be set in America. The game put players in the shoes of a new junior deputy in Montana, who arrives just in time to take on a fanatical doomsday cult. Just like previous entries, Far Cry 5 is as brutally violent as ever.

If you have yet to give the game a shot, it's available for $59.99 on Xbox One with Xbox One X enhancements in tow. However, it can occasionally be found for cheaper if you shop around; it's currently $44 on Amazon, for example.
