Last week, I got a chance to play around a half hour of Far Cry 5. Most of that time was spent struggling to fly a plane (full disclosure: I don't believe this is the game's fault, I just can't fly planes in any game for some reason). The rest of the time was spent petting my adorable attack dog, Boomer. Boomer is a dog you can pet whenever you're near, who also growls when enemies are just over the horizon. Boomer is my best friend.
Anyways, today Ubisoft's revealed a new extended gameplay demo, the same I played last week that was also on display at E3. It's no doubt more exciting than the unstructured time I had learning to fly a plane and having a very poorly choreographed dogfight in mid-air. (Not the other "dog fights" I had in the fields of Montana between Boomer and resident wolves—those were fine.)
The demo shows many key things in Far Cry 5, such as the immediate freedom the player has upon entering the troubled Hope County, to the world that adapts and reacts depending to the many choices you make along the game's journey. The developer-toured demo also features Boomer, though in the actual game players can choose from other companions as well. (But who would play without a cute dog at their side?)
You can watch the new gameplay video, narrated by associate producer Philippe Fournier and script writer Marri Knadle below.
