Ubisoft releases a new trailer for Far Cry 5 showing off co-op play for their highly anticipated 2018 shooter. Far Cry 5 is taking a radical departure from previous games in the series, at least with its setting. In Far Cry 4, all side quests were accessible in co-op mode but the main story was still locked down to single player.
When it comes to the Far Cry games, Ubisoft has always tried to include some form of co-op. Far Cry 3's gameplay isn't relevant to the game's story, mainly focusing on four different people attempting to get revenge on a ship captain who sold his entire ship and all its passengers out to pirates.
You can share ammo and health packs, and can even turn on friendly fire if you fancy living dangerously.
You'll be able to adventure together, but only the hosting player will be able to accept missions, keep world progression, and recruit and command Guns for Hire. Moving from the exotic locales of older games, Far Cry 5 is calling Montana, US home, where you'll be shooting your way through a gun-toting religious cult. One solution to this problem is to play the game through with the same person. What do you think of the new co-op features?
As for when we can expect the game, it'll be coming out on February 27 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Both players will be able to keep everything they earned (XP, loot, etc.) In co-op mode, the host's story will progress not the other persons.
