Far Cry 5 is an action-adventure first-person shooter game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is the eleventh entry and the fifth main title in the Far Cry series, and was released on March 27, 2018.
Far Cry 5 : the game is set in the fictional Hope County, Montana, where a preacher named Joseph Seed (portrayed by Greg Bryk) has risen to prominence. Seed believes that he has been chosen by God to protect the people of Hope County from an “inevitable collapse” and has established a congregation called the Project at Eden’s Gate. Ostensibly, this is to fulfill his mission of leading the people to salvation; in reality, Seed is a radical preacher and Eden’s Gate is a militaristic doomsday cult. Under his rule, Eden’s Gate has used both coercion and violence to forcibly convert the residents of Hope County, and intimidation to keep them from contacting the outside world for help. Seed has assumed the title of “the Father” and maintains control over Hope County with the aid of the Heralds: Jacob, “the Soldier” (Mark Pellegrino), a former US Army sniper and Joseph’s older brother who oversees the training and deployment of the cult’s armed soldiers; John, “the Baptist” (Seamus Dever), Joseph’s younger brother and a lawyer who has been able to acquire much of the land in Hope County for Eden’s Gate who leads the forcible conversion of residents; and Faith, “the Siren” (Jenessa Grant), an early member of the cult who rose up and acts as a pacifist to bring the people to trust in Joseph, but runs forced labour camps for residents who resist the cult.
