Far Cry 5 key art

The first official look at Far Cry 5 features a lot of details that match-up with some of the leaked rumors USgamer reported on earlier this week. The religious cult motif is definitely played up with the Last Supper arrangement, a man held captive with the word 'sinner' on his back, flags bearing crosses, and the U.S. flag itself also altered with crosses replacing the stars.

The central figure at the table is also dressed a little sharper, and a little more modern than his cohorts, suggesting he is maybe the "Hollywood big shot" who comes in to take command of the cult as leaked earlier on Reddit.

Much like previous Far Cry covers, the group showcased sitting at a table–armed to the teeth with guns, and what appears to be a leashed wolfhound–will presumably be the game's main villains, as the image is staged in much the same way as Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4's covers which both show off the game's primary villains front-and-center.

According to the details compiled so far, Far Cry 5 will take place in Hope County, Montana where a group of religious cultists have taken over the surrounding area. It's up the the player to stop the group from taking full control of Hope County. Ubisoft released a series of videos earlier this week made to look like tourism videos, only people were seen getting shot, or beaten against a church bell. Fun stuff.

The first Far Cry 5 trailer is expected to drop on Friday, May 26 so be sure to check back with us then for more Far Cry 5 details.
