Far Cry 5 Gets Lost On Mars Next Week

The next downloadable content for Far Cry 5 is right around the corner.

Ubisoft announced today when players could expect to tackle the next downloadable content (DLC) release for Far Cry 5. The DLC will be releasing on July 17, 2018 on all platforms. Lost of Mars takes ace pilot Nick Rye to the desolate planet of Mars with his good friend Hurk. Together, these two backwoods commandos have to stop an alien invasion.

Helping the duo in their war will be new alien weapons, including the Blaster of Disaster, Hellfire and Morphinator. Players can get around on Mars with the new Space Jets, which offers some new high-flying movement choices. And those who download Lost on Mars get access to a few new weapons in Far Cry 5 itself: the Obliteratorrrr, Taser Phazer Annihilazer, Nerve Reaper, Grape Popper, and Hellfire.

Even if you don't download Lost on Mars, every player gains access to Mars-themed assets in Far Cry Arcade, allowing you to expand the types of buildable maps available. Far Cry Arcade will continue to see themed assets in future updates.

Lost on Mars follows Hours of Darkness, the Vietnam-themed DLC that launched at the beginning of June. The final content release will be Dead Living Zombies, which is planned for release sometime in August. All three adventures are available as part of the Season Pass, or for standalone purchase.
