Today Ubisoft released the first DLC for Far Cry 5, titled Hours of Darkness.
The DLC costs $11.99 and carries the player into a completely different setting, Vietnam. That’s quite the jump from the Montana of the main game. It’ll come on June 5th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
“Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness transports players into a war-torn Vietnam as they relive the harrowing experience of Wendell Redler from the main campaign of Far Cry 5. Playable in solo or online co-op, Hours of Darkness transports players from rural Montana to a dangerous jungle where they must rescue imprisoned squad mates, wreak havoc on the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army, and fight to get back home by any means necessary. This first DLC adventure will feature new gear and abilities as well as two different playable modes that will be unlocked after completing Hours of Darkness: Survivor Mode, giving players a limited loadout for a more challenging playthrough, and Action Movie Mode, where a generous loadout delivers over-the-top action.”
Alongside the DLC players will also get Vietnam-themed assets for Far Cry Arcade with a title update on May 24th. This will allow map builders to create new levels with a Vietnam flavor.
Looks like the game’s developers are going balls to the wall with alternate settings this time around, as two more major DLC are planned, as you can see in the schedule at the bottom of the post. Lost on Mars will come in July bringing a science-fiction theme, while Dead Living Zombies will do what it says on the tin in August. All will be included in the $29.99 season pass.
