E3 2017: Far Cry 5 Features A Wingsuit And Unlockable Stuff From 1960s, 1970s
Far Cry 5 - Wingsuit
(Last Updated On: June 14, 2017)

Some new demos for Far Cry 5 have popped up, featuring some of the Fangs for Hire and the Guns for Hire gameplay. We learn about Eden’s Gate’s process of enacting the “Reaping” on the various cities within Hope County, along with some of the weapons you’ll use, some of the vehicles you’ll use, and some of the melee combat. We also learn from Dan Hay that the wingsuit is back.

We learn that Boomer the dog can help tag all of the enemies in the area. Boomer the dog can be used as a weapon as well. As you kill enemies and wipe out Eden’s Gate cult members, you can liberate the communities and cities within Hope County.

You can check out the video below from the PlayStation booth at E3.

Some cool elements worth talking about includes the enemy AI being able to revive their teammates who are downed. We see that one of the reinforcements comes to help up another teammate.

Players can also easily traverse across rooftops using a crossbow cable launcher. Additionally, buildings are fully enterable and you can even setup your attacks before you actually begin your attack.

We also learn that the wingsuit is back and there are additional items to unlock in the game world of Far Cry 5 as well. It’s discussed in the video below.

For those of you who are hearing impaired, Ubisoft Montreal creative director Dan Hay explained in the video…

“I don’t honestly know if I’m allowed to talk about the wingsuit… but you know what? Fuck it. Yes, it’s back.

 

“What’s cool about it is that we didn’t just put in a wingsuit, we actually built a character that’s this legendary stuntman from Montana. And when you do a lot of this stuff in the wingsuit and other stunts in the world, you’re actually paying homage to him and unlock stuff based off his personality from like the 1960s and the 1970s.”

So there you have it. You can unlock new stuff just by playing the game and pulling off stunts once you meet the wingsuit man.

Far Cry 5 is due for release in February of 2018 for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    Wonder if they’re talking about Evel Knievel. He grew up in MT. Very famous, late 60’s through the 70’s.

    These games about revolutions or resistances in America have so much potential, but usually fail.

    Homefront had a mechanized vehicle that you could use to attack the Koreans, much like the dog in Far Cry 5 (or Primal). That game stuck to closely to Call of Duty and has hindered by that.

    Homefront the Revolution was a Far Cry knock off.

    Far Cry 5 is Far Cry 3 with a slightly different skin.

    These games could be nuts. Americans have tons of guns and plenty of plenty of people ready and willing to fight. Not only that, be we love new toys, such as drones. Instead, we get these very restrained by-the-numbers FPS games.

      Far cry 5 is far cry 4 with ideas from far cry primal

      I wouldnt go on comparing 5 with 3 because by that logic all games including homefront are far cry 3 clones.

      • Hawk Hopper

        Far Cry 4 is Far Cry 3 with some snow.

        Homefront came out 1 year before Far Cry 3 and they don’t share many gameplay aspects. Homefront was more of a Call of Duty clone.

        Homefront: The Revolution is Far Cry 3 with a Koreans dominating US skin.

        I wouldn’t go so far as to imply that Far Cry has done anything vastly different between 3, 4, Primal, and 5.

    You know this was the best game of the show to me, simply because they showed the gameplay. Ea basicly had…..squat. Bethesda showed trailers and ubisoft showed gameplay.
