Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness will release in June

Far Cry 5 has been one of Ubisoft's most successful game launches in recent history, offering an enjoyable single-player campaign, spectacular visuals and a tonne of extra player made content thanks to the title's Arcade mode level editor.     

Next month, Far Cry 5 will start receiving content from the title's £25.99 season pass, stating with the title's "Hours of Darkness" DLC, which places Far Cry 5's Wendell "Red" Redler into the Vietnam war on a rescue mission to save his captured comrades. Assets from this DLC are already available in Far Cry 5's Arcade mode. Each Far Cry DLC will also be available separately, outside of the game's season pass. 

After completing the DLC players will be able to unlock two additional game modes, a "survivor mode" where players have access to limited resources and an "Action Movie mode" where players have enough explosives and equipment to have some "over-the-top action. 

   
   Wendell Redler is more than just a Hope County resident, he's a war veteran soldier of the Vietnam War

Listen to him recount his glory days, as you travel back in time to war-torn Vietnam to take down the Viet-Cong. Trapped Behind enemy lines, rescure your squad mates and evacuate to safety in the first war-based Far Cry. You must maneuver throughout this remote valley in Vietnam, and use survival instinct and stealth to save your team and get home. 



Far Cry 5's Hours of Darkness DLC will be available on June 5th, both as part of Far Cry 5's season pass and as an individual DLC. Later this year Far Cry 5 will also receive the space-based "Lost on Mars" DLC and a "Zombies" themed DLC. 

You can join the discussion about Far Cry 5's upcoming Hours of Darkness DLC on the OC3D Forums.

Ooo nice ! sounds good man. I love this game in co op. Even with all of its bugs and flaws it's still easily one of the best co op games I have ever played.

Just to emphasise on that.. Basically the other day me and my pal were playing a session. We were in the middle of a mission and he vanished. So I says "What you doing dude?" and he replies "I'm fishing man" lol so I pulled out my rod and we shot the sh*t for a bit.

It's a fantastic game, and should have been co op in earlier versions too.Quote

My brother and I also enjoy the co-op...we did the same thing with the fishing for about 30 minutes on the first day we played it. I wish the campaign had been longer....FC4 campaign was SUPER long, same thing with FC2.

I also wish the co-op let you run the whole campaign together HOWEVER I do enjoy that you finally can do almost everything together and it count for both players. I wish the silo towers and items would count for each persons play-through rather then just the hosts....but that's okay too.

All in all - SUPER enjoyable game just wish it didn't have a linear campaign that made you go through certain bits separately (or doing it over with yourself as host) such as silo tower destruction and specific campaign missions....but this also why I enjoyed the hell out of Forza Horizon 3 cuz I could play it with my bro and a friend of ours and just drive around and do ANYTHING and it count for all of us in our own individualized accounts (no linear campaign though so that is why it worked that way).

Definitely not disappointed I bought the game at all, 10/10 imho, just wish it had been a smig longer.Quote

TBH if you played it the way we have it would have lasted longer. Instead of basically staying in one area, doing the crap, killing the boss we've just been drifting around doing bits slowly each time. We've only killed one boss and we are about 20 hours in now. I think it's mainly because we get side tracked and etc, or, we simply didn't listen when it explained that the "bosses" come to you.

Either way there has been *a lot* of laughter during our playthrough. And, we need to do it again because so far he is at 0%. If you play in co op you can only play one player's game file, so he hasn't even started yet. I am sure when mine is finished we will do it again, on his file sorta thing.Quote

I did it solo, liked it but ultimately found it more of the same as previous games. I was most unhappy with the boring, done too many times already, and tiny weapon selection. Overall I had fun and that's what counts. Looking forward to all the DLC!Quote
