It's been a few months since Ubisoft released Far Cry 5 into the world, tasking players with fighting the Project at Eden's Gate in Hope County, Montana. The first downloadable content (DLC) for the game, Hours of Darkness, took players to the jungles of Vietnam. Ahead of the next DLC release, Ubisoft is offering a new feature to the game.
Starting today, Far Cry 5 will have an all-new Photo Mode. Like Photo Mode in other titles, you'll have the option of stopping the game in its tracks, moving the camera around, changing filters, and finding the best angle on your mayhem. You can even change the facial expressions on your character to really capture the mood.
The Photo Mode is available in any single-player mode of Far Cry 5. That means it's live in the single-player campaign, solo maps in Far Cry Arcade, or any of the DLC releases, like Hours of Darkness and the upcoming Lost of Mars. On PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, you'll hide the UI in Photo Mode to take shots, while the PC version saves screenshots in a specific directory.
Photo Mode is accessible from Far Cry 5's pause menu. Ubisoft's FAQ for the new mode does list a number of situations where it doesn't work, including the starting sequence of the game, during animal attack quick time events, while you're reloading, or when you're handling dead bodies for some reason. Some of the situations make sense, while others are a bit odder.
Either way, it's time to share that perfect shot with a perfect screenshot!
