Welcome to Hope County, Montana.

This beautiful place is home to a community of freedom-loving people - and a fanatical doomsday cult known as, “The Project at Eden’s Gate”. Led by the charismatic prophet, Joseph Seed, and his devoted siblings – The Heralds. Eden’s Gate has been quietly infiltrating every aspect of daily life in this once-quiet town. Your arrival incites the cult to violently seize control of the region and you must rise up and spark the fires of resistance to liberate a besieged community.

Freely explore Hope County’s rivers, lands, and skies with the largest customizable weapon and vehicle roster ever in a Far Cry game.
You are the hero of the story, in a thrilling world that hits back with every punch, where the places you discover and the locals you ally with will shape your story in ways you’ll never see coming.

The game releases on February 27, 2018.

Thank you for the official full list of Features Ubisoft! Any reason why you aren't mentioning the full list on the farcry5.com website?

I'm specifically hinting at the "Create insane and unique Far Cry experiences with the map editor, to enjoy with or against your friends!" part, as there was a community of mappers dying to find out whether the game would include an editor! :)

I hope you guys are planning a map editor trailer. If not my agony will kill me. I want to live plz ubi.

Thanks for the feature list. It sounds awesome.

Is the map editor limited to PvP? It would be great if we could create PvE challenge maps, as I hear Doom has. Or at least let us add wildlife and NPCs to PvP maps.

One complaint: You call Pastor Jeffries a "preacher", but in the trailer he has a rosary. You're mixing Catholic and Protestant things. Maybe that's deliberate because the pastor is some crazed pseudo-Christian, like Longinus (who was fun). But I worry the mixup is accidental.

I have put over 400 hours into far cry 4 and most of that time was in the editor. It is an amazing creative tool and I love it, but it it still could be improved upon. I have read in a number of articles that you guys are working on it for Far Cry 5. I really hope so for sure. It is mentioned that there maybe is a multiplayer offering for it. I simply hope that it is an improved version of Far Cry 4 with new modes and multiplayer. I will buy Far Cry 5 new on day of release and I will blindly get the season pass if the editor is 100% confirmed for single player, co-op, and multiplayer. Thanks!
