Far Cry 5 Pre-Order Guide

Far Cry 5 Pre-Order Guide

All the details on Ubisoft’s Latest take on the Far Cry franchise, due for release early in 2018. Gameplay, setting, release date and more. New details on the Far Cry 5 Season Pass, Far Cry Arcade, and Far Cry 3 for PS4 and Xbox One.

Far Cry 5 will launch on March 27, 2018 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. From that date on, you'll be able to travel to Montana and take on the militaristic doomsday cult known as Eden's Gate with your own copy of the game.

If that sounds like your kind of thing and you've already made your decision to snap up a copy of the game as soon as you possibly can, you're in the right place. This page is about to take you through each of the different editions of Far Cry 5 as well as where you should pre order to get which pre order bonus. Given that this is a Ubisoft title, it should be unsurprising that there is an overabundance of editions to choose from.

Doomsday Prepper pre order bonus

If you pre-order Far Cry 5 at almost any retailer, you'll get the Doomsday Prepper Pack. This includes the prepper outfit, gun and vehicle skins, plus additional consumables.
