The new game from Ubisoft is absolutely ruthless! Far Cry 5 doesn't care about your free time, because the developers have saturated the state of Montana with so many additional quests that you will need at least 50 hours to complete them. And even after a thorough exploration of the American hinterland, finding all the endings of the game, you can always play on unique maps in Arcade Far Cry mode.
And as if that weren't enough, Ubisoft prepared as many as three DLCs for Far Cry 5, made in the best traditions of the Blood Dragon expansion. That is, the DLC will offer a separate story not related to the cultists from "New Eden" and will be as crazy as possible. Here Ubisoft decided to have a full blast.
The first expansion for Far Cry 5 takes the game back to the Vietnam War of 1964-1975. In the role of an ordinary soldier Wendell Redler, we will have to fight the Viet Cong soldiers, save our comrades and get out of the jungle devoured by a bloody war.
The main feature of the add-on is a changed color scheme, which abandons the realistic colors of the original game and is replete with acid shades. In terms of visuals, "Dark Time" resembles Blood Dragon, in which the acid scale also prevailed, and the picture was additionally stylized with VHS filters.
As for other details, here you can only speculate. For example, if we turn to historical information, the Viet Cong people liked to ambush, set up numerous traps and threw grenades with a sling. With a high probability, all these attributes of the Vietnam War can be seen in the DLC for Far Cry 5.
Prisoner of Mars
The next addition will be perhaps the most unusual of all. Apparently, Ubisoft decided to follow the example of the developers of the game Surviving Mars and also got hooked on the Martian-themed hypetrain. This DLC takes Far Cry 5 players into the distant future and travels straight to the Red Planet.
DLC will offer several unique innovations for the Far Cry series. First, the surroundings of Mars with endless deserts and rocky mountains. Secondly, opponents in the face of a race of evil beetles, which resemble those from the cult movie of the 90s - Starship Troopers. Third, the use of jetpacks to quickly move around the world of the game in low gravity conditions. This feature should significantly refresh the basic mechanics of Far Cry 5.
Fierce Zombie Day
Surprisingly, Ubisoft is probably the last major publisher that hasn't touched on the popular zombie theme yet. Developers are more than catching up with this co-op DLC for Far Cry 5. The first thing that catches your eye is the parody of the setting. Although the expansion will be replete with dark locations, cemeteries and terrifying dead, the tone of the story is more satirical, as opposed to the serious Left 4 Dead.
A caricatured protagonist who looks like Duke Nukem and a title parodying George Romero's Night of the Living Dead. It is immediately clear that in the game we will be able to see references to numerous works in the zombie apocalypse genre. Ubisoft themselves emphasize this fact by the statement that all 7 scenarios for the DLC were shot by second-rate director Guy Marvel. By the way, it was this character who shot the film Blood Dragon, which we wrote about in our material about Easter eggs and the secrets of Far Cry 5.
There are several ways to play the add-on - download Far Cry 5 Gold Edition, purchase separately the Season Pass, or buy them as soon as they are released. If you have not purchased the game yet, then the first option will be the most profitable solution.
