UBISOFT REVEALS FAR CRY® 5 SEASON PASS DETAILS
Three New Adventures Will Transport Players Well Beyond Hope County
SAN FRANCISCO — February 2, 2018 — Today, Ubisoft announced the content of Far Cry® 5 Season Pass, available as part of the Far Cry 5 Gold Edition or as an add-on purchase on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and PC.
Following the launch of Far Cry 5 on March 27, the season pass will continue to deliver experiences with the unique Far Cry twist as players are transported to uncanny adventures across three unique settings.
• Hours of Darkness: Players will travel back in time to Vietnam to battle against Việt Cộng soldiers
• Dead Living Zombies: Players will face hordes of zombies across multiple b-movie scenarios
• Lost on Mars: Players will leave Earth behind to go toe-to-claws with Martian arachnids
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 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Far Cry 3® Classic Edition will let fans and newcomers to the series revisit Rook Island and encounter one of the franchise’s most notorious villains Vaas, who is brought to life by Michael Mando. As Jason Brody, players must explore the tropical island to find and save his friends, who are being held captive. PC players who purchase the season pass or Far Cry 5 Gold Edition will receive the full version of Far Cry® 3.
More details on post-launch support for Far Cry 5, including an overview of the three adventures and the return of the map editor will be shared at a later date.
Set in America, a first for the franchise, Far Cry 5 offers players total freedom to navigate a serene-looking yet deeply twisted world as the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana. Players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden's Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance.
