The first trailer for 'Far Cry 5' is finally here, and it's about a religious cult in Montana

The trailer for the hotly-anticipated “Far Cry 5” has finally dropped, and for the first time, it’s taking the fight to the United States of America. 

The gritty and violent franchise doesn’t look like it’s taking its foot off the gas as it approaches its fifth instalment. The game is set in the fictional town of Hope County, Montana, where a radical cult, led by the prophet Joseph Seed, has taken control of the region. 

According to Ubisoft, the game will task you with sparking “the fires of resistance to liberate a besieged community.” 

“Far Cry 5” will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on February 27, 2018.
