A listing for Far Cry 5 that's popped up on Steam has revealed that it will support two-player co-op action against cult leader Joseph Seed and his siblings, the Heralds. And unlike Far Cry 4, where co-operative play was limited to side quests, Ubisoft said the two-player action in Montana will be available across the entire campaign. Some of what's in the listing we already know, such as the ability to recruit Guns (people) and Fangs (animals) to your cause, and it also confirms that along with tractors (which you better be able to play chicken with), the vehicles in the game will include "iconic muscle cars, ATV's, planes and a lot more." And while the promise of "a world that hits back" doesn't necessarily mean anything, it is intriguing, if only because the bad guys in previous Far Cry games have been oddly happy to let me run roughshod over them without really trying to do anything about it. "Wreak havoc on the cult and its members," it says, "but beware of the wrath of Joseph Seed and his followers." The listing also indicates that Far Cry 5 will be available in three different editions: Your basic dude-shooting version, which will sell for $60/£45/€60; the Deluxe Edition, which comes with the Big Game Hunter pack, the Ace Pilot pack, the Explosive pack, the Chaos pack, and the AR-C assault rifle and .44 Magnum pistol with unique skins, for $70/£55/€70; and the gold edition, with all of the above plus the season pass, which carries a $90/£75/€90 price tag. The contents of the season pass aren't specified, but it will include "additional stories, content, and gear." The preorder bonus for all of them is the Doomsday Prepper Pack, with a "prepper outfit, gun and vehicle skins plus additional consumables." Far Cry 5 is scheduled for release on February 27, 2018 Source: http://www.pcgamer.com/far-cry-5-will-support-two-player-co-op-across-the-full-campaign/
SK8 posted a topic in Gaming NewsPublishers need to drop PC games prices in order to stem the flourishing grey market, says Matt Martin. How are you going to sell me Far Cry 4 for £45 when I can pick up Far Cry, Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, Far Cry: Blood Dragon and extra DLC for just £30? Some players have been booting up their PCs to discover games have disappeared. I get angry when I cant log-in for five minutes, or if I have to download the latest DLC. Imagine how youd feel to discover your entire game has gone AWOL. A game you paid good money for. Yesterday it came to light that Ubisoft has been deactivating copies of Far Cry 4 that were bought from unauthorised third-party sellers. The publisher told Eurogamer that sellers via G2As marketplace had bought keys fraudulently before selling them on to customers at a knockdown price. Ubisoft didnt go about this the right way. Anyones going to be shocked to discover a game has vanished, and the instant reaction is probably to blame a company that already has a poor track record with its consumer products. Customers should have been warned their games were to be cancelled. But you cant blame Ubisoft for taking action. It needs to protect its business and profits. Allowing companies or individuals to undercut and sell-on unauthorised keys isnt good for the consumer in the long term. Fraud only leads to increased prices, and digital prices are already too high. This is the root of the problem. Why else is there a business in selling cheaper game keys in the first place? Because digital prices are too high on PC, just as they are on console. Far Cry 4 costs £44.99 on Steam and Uplay. Its £20.83 less than half price on G2A.com. Playing games is an expensive hobby, so which store is the gamer going to opt for? If you dont know anything about a retailers past (and really, unless youre a dedicated player, why should you?) then youll buy from the store with the best price. And you cant be blamed for doing that. The culture of cheap sales and bundles for PC gaming is partly to blame here, too. Steam sales are an event where players can snap up a pile of quality games for low prices, or even a whole franchise for the price of just one new release. Consumers conditioned to jump on these deals will obviously reject full-price releases. How are you going to sell me Far Cry 4 for £45 when I can pick up Far Cry, Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, Far Cry: Blood Dragon and extra DLC for just £30? We have to trust Steam and Ubisoft as the gate-holders of their games and services. Thats part of playing games on PC. What we want in return is an official product that works on the right service for a decent price. When we dont feel were getting that, we resort to bargain deals. What hasnt been previously obvious is that youre making a £20 bet. And the odds arent stacked in your favour. While consumers have to learn from this latest episode with G2A keys, so should the publisher. It stings, but the only legitimate way to play a great game like Far Cry 4 on PC is to pay the asking price from official sellers. Theres a reason why gamers deviate. The industry needs to start tackling the subject of digital pricing now. High prices are allowing resellers to flourish. Knock down prices and publishers will sell more games, have less hassle with a grey market and get players back on their side. And a popular vote is something Ubisoft needs now more than ever.
