The first trailer for Far Cry 5 is here, and Jonestown vibes reverberate throughout. At just over two minutes, the trailer gives us a look at the game's rural Montana setting, where we'll be taking on a religious cult that has a violent stranglehold on the citizens of Hope County.
The Montana setting is a big departure from that of previous Far Cry games, which saw players venturing through tropical islands and fictional countries tucked in the Himalayas. Instead, Far Cry 5 offers a chance to trek through the wilderness of the American west. And given the last Far Cry game, Primal, took place in the distant past, Far Cry 5 offers something fresh altogether.
The religious theme, which was more than hinted at in the recent release of the game's first official art, is sure to push the envelope of controversy. That said, it certainly looks like it will offer an interesting dive into some new territory for the franchise.
In any case, Far Cry 5 is set for a February 27, 2018 release. E3 is right around the corner, however, so we should learn much more about the game soon. For now, you can take a closer look at some of the game's characters in a set of vignettes.
