A note on Far Cry 5 cross-progression and co-op

Like is the case with Far Cry 6, you should know that only the host’s progression is saved when you play the game as a co-op. So even though you’ve completed the whole campaign together, it’s essentially only the host that gets the credit for it.

Seed preaches about a coming collapse and has convinced people that he has been sent by god to protect them.

The player is sent in as part of a task force meant to arrest Seed, but players will run into ample resistance due to Seed’s sway over the locals.

Gameplay

When you play Far Cry 5, it’ll be a very immersive open-world experience. This is a first-person shooter where you’ll be fighting enemies and exploring the area. You can explore on foot, but you’ll also be able to drive various vehicles to get around.

I especially enjoyed taking old crop duster planes in the air and chasing down bulls on tractors.

The action is very satisfying, and you will have access to close-quarters fighting options, such as melee weapons and firearms.Ā 

Players will be doing various tasks as they attempt to retake Hope County from the villainous Joseph Seed. You’d be recruiting people to your cause, liberating labor camps, and doing many other things that you might be familiar with if you played earlier Far Cry titles.

This game also has multiplayer features. You can play in co-op with your friends. The Far Cry Arcade mode has a map maker function that is separate from the main game.

Expansions

There are three minor DLCs to Far Cry 5 and one major standalone game. The three DLCs are:

  1. Hours of Darkness takes place during the Vietnam War.
  2. Lost on Mars, which takes place on Mars and deals with AI and aliens.
  3. Dead Living Zombies follows an auteur film director – Guy Marvel – as he struggles to get his first film produced.

The major expansion to Far Cry 5 is called Far Cry New Dawn (2019). It’s a narrative sequel to the original Far Cry 5, which follows survivors of a nuclear war – “the Collapse.”

The story is set 17 years after the events in Far Cry 5 as they struggle to survive in the toxic landscape. You’ll also have to deal with the Highwaymen, led by the ruthless twin sisters Mickey and Lou, who terrorizes the community.
