Far Cry fans with an Xbox One, who have not yet had the chance to get into the series’ latest, and Xbox One owners in general, your best opportunity to do so is now as Far Cry 5 is currently sitting at a 75% discount on the Microsoft US Store and at 60% on the Indian Store.
For the latter category of people, here’s a little rundown of what the fifth entry in the Far Cry franchise is all about, via the Microsoft store:
Far Cry comes to America in the latest installment of the award-winning franchise.
Hope County, Montana, has been overrun by a fanatical doomsday cult – The Project at Eden’s Gate. Upon your arrival, you must spark the fires of resistance to liberate the community. Fan the flames of resistance and fight to free Hope County from the grip of a deadly cult. Beware the wrath of Joseph Seed and his cult followers as you support the resistance in small-town America. Explore Hope County and discover the Montana countryside, its wildlife, and its inhabitants in an exciting open world. Play your way. Build your character, make your own allies, and watch the world change as you progress.
Far Cry 5 released back in March of last year to generally high critical acclaim, garnering a respectable score of 82 on Metacritic with the general consensus being that its core formula of Open-World mayhem is the best the series has to offer.
The title went on to become the fastest selling game in the franchise and also Ubisoft’s second largest launch after The Division.
