Ahead of the game’s launch at the end of
times the month, Ubisoft has dropped a new live-action Far Cry 5 trailer, featuring Hope County’s hillbilly messiah and bad guy “Father” Joseph Seed, the town’s erstwhile parish priest-turned-rebel disciple Jerome Jeffries, and a baptism that goes all kinds of wrong. Probably intentionally.
“Behind every villain is an unremarkable person with a remarkable story. This is about Joseph Seed’s journey before he became the Father, before Pastor Jerome was forced to forfeit his status as shepherd of the County’s souls,” the video description explains. Also, assuming that’s Jerome’s kid, we now know why it’s personal.
Game’s out on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on 27 March. In the meantime, here’s everything else you should know about it.
