At the end of Far Cry 5 if you got the main, I suppose now canonical ending, a great big nuclear bomb erupts, killing numerous people in Hope County.
It seems as though Ubisoft will also be participating in tomorrow's 2018 edition of The Game Awards and they'll be bringing a new Far Cry related announcement with them. According to the teaser, the new Far Cry title will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but there's no release date just yet.
Interesting stuff! The bucolic country setting seen at the beginning of the trailer strongly suggests the next Far Cry will take place on an atom-bomb-altered version of Far Cry 5's Montana map. After the world burns following the nuke's detonation, we see a character holding a crossbow that seems to use buzzsaws as ammunition.
Tune into the Game Awards for the world premiere of the next Far Cry. All the games have been standalone experiences.
This year's The Game Awards (TGA) event is officially kicking off on December 6, and we already have quite a bit to look forward to. If you take a closer look at the trailer, you may notice that in the first frame we see the dropping of a nuclear bomb just in the background, with a familiar-looking Montana-esque barn and a United States flag next to it.
