Far Cry: New Dawn Announced

Ubisoft takes the stage of The Game Awards 2018 to announce Far Cry: New Dawn in a post-nuclear playground.

Just a day before the event of The Game Awards 2018, developer/publisher Ubisoft decided to drop a teaser for their next ambitions chapter of Far Cry series, which is one of their most critically-lauded franchises of first-person shooter titles.

The internet was quick to point out the teaser trailer probably is hinting at the endings of Far Cry 5, the latest standalone title in the series and guess what? They were actually right. The newest standalone sequel to FC5 is announced, titled Far Cry: New Dawn.

Hope County is not anything like you used to know before and turned into something entirely different. Seventeen years after a nuclear meltdown, the world has changed and this direct sequel to previous installment actually comes back in a vibrant new world.

You'd think that a world-ending level of catastrophe will leave the place in dust but nature worked its magic and bounced back a colorful superbloom to the place. A new community is build but it is threatened by a scavenger's gang called Highwaymen led by twin sisters, Mickey and Lou.

When the unforeseen event took place, the twins were just kids and they learned about the harsh reality of growing up in a wasteland frontier. They formed this vicious gang of like-minded looters who lives life like there is no tomorrow.

These nomadic savages move from one place to another within the countryside, take resources for themselves from anywhere they can find and kills or take people into the group when they came across in way of their journey.

Doing what they do in general, they finally arrived back in Hope County and the survivors of the ruined town would need help from players to withstand the tyrannical oppression the Highwaymen are about to inflict on them.

Aside from shooting guns, you will need to work with the survivors to make a Homebase, where you craft makeshift weapons and train hired guns and fangs like Timber as you have before as Boomer. You are back into the Mad Max-esque world if you are wondering.

Currently scheduled to release on February 15, 2019, Far Cry: New Dawn will see launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for the price of $39.99 only. Explore and survive in a post-apocalyptic world to re-purpose resources for leading a fight against the marauders.

On surface, the game seems to have a smaller-scale premise even for a sequel, something similar to the spin-off release Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. What we can see so far is that it looks like a newly designed Fallout game foundation with revamped elements of RAGE 2.

Far Cry 5 Game Awards 2018 Teaser

Ubisoft goes full post-apocalyptic with Far Cry series in a new teaser trailer for The Game Awards 2018.

The latest installment of action-adventure first-person shooter game series Far Cry from developer/publisher Ubisoft was Far Cry 5 that came out earlier this year and became one of the fastest-selling games of the franchise despite controversy.

Now, ahead of The Game Awards 2018, Ubisoft has unveiled a brand-new cinematic trailer for their upcoming project as a follow-up to the series that has a post-apocalyptic vibe. Though the video doesn't give away much, we can still sum up a few part on our own.

Take a look at this video of upcoming Far Cry project/sequel with a short narrative below released this afternoon.

Though, we don't have much details on our hand to work with, the teaser surely looks like it is connected to FC5 and may even serve up a follow-up sequel, whereas all of the previous games from the series came out as standalone releases.

The opening shot of the teaser shows us a farmhouse across wheat fields and mountains in the distance, which has a striking resemblance to Hope County, Montana. Then a sudden nuclear explosion goes off on the horizon with a blinding light and a mushroom cloud blooming.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR FAR CRY 5.

Everything goes up in flame and the wheat fields get destroyed as we see it happen in slow motion. Then years after, that place saw blue sky but the world that emerged from the husk of the old one is not the one that had any hope in it.

You cannot make something concrete out of these vague images for sure but the nuclear meltdown event most probably is the one we saw from the ending of Far Cry 5. It seems that a mixture of Fallout and RAGE 2 is coming this way by the looks of it.

Now, we will have to wait some more to get a full reveal of the new game at The Game Awards event to know whether Ubisoft is sending players on post-apocalyptic journey into post-nuclear Montana by moving far from the rest of the series or go to another direction.

Taking in account that it hasn't been a full year since Far Cry 5 was released and launching multiple DLC packs already, the company is ready to work with the same IP is quite interesting. We just hope the reveal excites us and everyone in the end by offering fans another spectacular open-world sandbox.

Far Cry 5 Fan Recreates Jurassic Park

Using the astounding in-game multiplayer map editor, a fan has recreated Jurassic Park in Far Cry 5 game.

Developer Ubisoft has made a comeback at their action-adventure first-person shooter franchise with Far Cry 5 in 2018 and the game did quite well despite some little political issues. Players didn't just stopped finishing their main story campaign of freeing Hope County from preacher Joseph Seed and his militaristic doomsday cult Eden's Gate, they decided to get creative with the game's map builder for multiplayer and has end up recreating the iconic Jurassic Park.

If you have enough time and patience, the in-game map builder can be such a tool and the park from 1993 classic sci-fi movie of Steven Spielberg came alive as result of hard work from a fan. We saw a quirk of Baker Family from Resident Evil 7 and the mysterious tropical island from TV series Lost from ABC already. Now that Universal Pictures' Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is stirring hype among cinema loving fans, suddenly people are going crazy about dinosaurs and thus the Jurassic Park mod was born.

Community based gaming news sharing YouTube channel Forge Labs weighs in on Far Cry: Jurassic Park mod created by D4RKDEATH and you got a walkthrough in the clip below.

There is a Pokémon GO-style augmented reality game Jurassic World Alive already out now and a park simulator called Jurassic World Evolution will release very soon but none of them comes any closer to the one we are talking about. While many players are eagerly looking forward for upcoming DLC packs to release, you can get busy with this brand-new Jurassic Park mod in the meantime and have some fun. Because, the fictional island of Isla Nublar is much scarier than Hope County, Montana.

Akin to previous take on popular franchises with Far Cry 5 multiplayer map builder, this one tried to remain faithful to source material and many hidden Easter Eggs are planted within. Sadly, you will not be seeing any dinosaurs. Walking around the park, you will notice those electric fences to keep the Tyrannosaurus Rex inside from getting out to the toilet from where it later picked up lawyer Donald Gennaro, everything iconic is carefully placed there for sentimental fans.

Aside from some rail shooters, a few park builders and a LEGO adaptation, Jurassic Park didn't get the attention or respect it deserved. Since two of the currently existing Jurassic World game is just a simulator and an AR, this new Far Cry 5 version is apparently the best experience you can get from the prehistoric adventure game series. Whereas we are shown what Ubisoft has ushered with their impressive map builder, we also are reminded that it's time they finally make a proper Jurassic Park game.

Far Cry 5 Breaks Franchise Sales Records

First week sell of this title surpassed double the amount than what Far Cry 4 made upon its initial release. More than half of these sales percentage came from digital purchase though. Before this title, only Tom Clancy's The Division saw such grand launch as another Ubisoft-made game.

The studio has more to add along with those record-breaking sales numbers, because there are more to put in. Following the release of Far Cry 5, over 55,000 hours of gameplay was streamed on Twitch and videos on YouTube have crossed 117 million views. These two are both records for any Ubisoft game to have within a week of their launch. This clearly shows how positively players of Far Cry community have taken the game and their enthusiasm is coming out in numbers.

Far Cry 5 IT Movie Easter Eggs

We already know now that Ubisoft's action-adventure first-person shooter Far Cry 5 pits you against a militaristic doomsday cult called Eden's Gate as a rookie sheriff's deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana. What we recently discovered is that it also has two indications to a certain creepy character from Stephen King’s 1986 horror novel that has been adapted to a successful TV Series and a live-action film. Yes, we are talking about Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

No, we are not trying to raise your hopes by indicating that "IT" from King’s story to appear on Far Cry 5 or actor Bill Skarsgård portraying a maniacal cult member with his frightening voice. In fact, there are two clear Easter Eggs for the keen eyes, which has become quite a buzz for the gamers who are trying to find it for themselves.

IT Movie Easter Egg

RELATED: Far Cry 5: Inside Eden’s Gate Short Film Announced

The first reference you will come across is a shiny red balloon just outside a sewer pipe near John’s crop circle and it seems that the developers have picked it up from Andy Muschietti's 2017 movie. Although, Pennywise the Dancing Clown was not waiting on the other side, many have chosen not to enter at their own risk. O’Hara’s Haunted House holds the second Easter Egg for players who pass through halls to discover another red balloon beside a chair as a note that reads:

“You have the fear of god you need the of THE DEVIL you need to FEAR IT you take a young person and take their body and mind you use their empty corpses to find more young people whose bodies you can steal no no NO no no you will wish your mind was scooped out of your body because when IT is through with your bodies YOU WON’T WANT THEM ANYMORE.”
This disturbing note pretty obviously nods to Pennywise by mentioning "IT" on last paragraph. Hope County, Montana is already a weird place with its very own mysteries surrounded by Eden's Gate cult and now these references adds up to that list. If you play the game, you will notice after a while that there is not a single child around. Is it because Pennywise has left the town long ago when he was done with the kids or these hints crossovers with Stephen King’s Multiverse?

The heart of the cult is the seed family who are forcing people to devote themselves to their cause and it's like the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse trying to take over the town. Jacob Seed serves the sect by recruiting, John is the Baptist, Faith acts as a pacifist to keep people in line and then there is the leader of the cult, a preacher named Joseph Seed.
