Can I haz Cheezburger?
Remember the guns-for-hire feature in Far Cry 2? Well, it’s back here but with a twist: in addition to hiring companions, you can also get animals to fight by your side. Check out the gameplay for Cheeseburger, a diabetic bear you can rescue and gain as a roving devourer of enemy cultists.
The map editor
The franchise’s map editor also returns in Far Cry 5, and it’s going to be crazy. Consider this: it lets you create and share small maps with single player, cooperative, and multiplayer objectives. Plus, you can use assets from other Ubisoft games including Watch Dogs, Far Cry Primal, and select Assassin’s Creed games.
Personally, the map editor alone already gets me excited for Far Cry 5. Considering that it also comes with a dynamic single player campaign and cooperative multiplayer, the game is incredibly hard to pass up.
Far Cry 5 is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
