Welcome to the Hope County, Montana. The location where our latest Far Cry game is being set. A few days ago, Ubisoft released an announcement teaser, that showed glimpses of beautiful sceneries with a touch of mad violence. This makes the teaser more interesting and thrilling to witness.
If you haven’t seen the teaser yet, check it out below.
Following the teaser, Ubisoft presented the teaser art which throws a few things about the game to the light.
This time you’ll need to chase and hunt down a charismatic villian who has a cult. You will get some aid in the form of planes. You can fly around in planes in the process of chasing him down. But first, let’s take a look at the art which has a strong reference to Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper.
This guy in the middle of the picture looks to be the main villian. He is the best groomed man in the group wearing almost everything in gray, including his beard. Though we can’t deduce anything out of the other areas of his body, his neck gives away a thing or two about him. He wears something similar to a black minister’s collar, which are usually white. From the looks of it, we are looking at a man who has his followers bound by certainties and hope, but is very evil at his core.
Let’s take a look at the guy who is seated in Judas’ position in The Last Supper. His eyes show that he is in particular unimpressed with something and reaches his hand out to the leader to demand something for a work he has done. If he is going to don the role of Judas, then he might be a good guy in this situation and an ally for us.
There are planes in Far Cry 5 and they aren’t just any plane. They are fighter planes that carry guns and missiles. You can get to know this, if you take a closer look at the pic above. This is a pretty strong teaser for player-controlled planes in Far Cry 5, which would be a step up from the mini-helicopter featured in Far Cry 4.
This captive has “Sinner” written on his back. He has been beaten down to his core and is confined with ropes. A tattoo in his left inner arm reads “Forever” and “Ghost”. Connecting these three words, we can assume that he is either a disgraced former member of this group, or a member of the opposing team who tried to stop this group from carrying out their activities but got caught. We feel the second assumption might be a good possibility than the first one.
Generally in America, there shouldn’t be any other flag allowed to fly other than the stars and stripes. But here we’ve got another one flying, which might represent this group. You can also see a farm to the right going down in flames while flying the american colors. This makes the group’s motives clear. They are either a rebellion group who want vengence or someone who wants the society to change as per their ambitions.
On the 26th of May, Ubisoft will be doing a live worldwide reveal on Far Cry 5. It might show a lot more details on the game and this art. Stay tuned to our facebook page to watch it.
