When Does Far Cry 5 Release?

Prepare to lose yourself in Hope County on the release of Far Cry 5.


Far Cry 5 is Ubisoft’s latest entry into the iconic series, and now that it’s 2018, players everywhere are asking the question: when does Far Cry 5 release? It’s common for games to receive delays, even as they quickly approach their launch, so it’s no surprise if you’re getting a bit nervous. But rest assured, everything appears to be on track.

When Does Far Cry 5 Release?

Far Cry 5 is scheduled to release on March 27, 2018 – a date that is rapidly approaching. As of this writing, next month is when players on all platforms (Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4) will be able to dive into the fictional province of Hope County and put a stop to religious zealots led by the captivating preacher, Joseph Seed.

March is shaping up to be an exciting month for gaming, and what better title to close out the first quarter of the year than with Far Cry 5. We’ll be covering everything about the game in detailed guides and walkthroughs – so if you find yourself stuck, swing by Shacknews for a helping hand.

Beyond the release date of Far Cry 5, the season pass has also been confirmed. There are three pieces of DLC that come with the season pass: Hours of Darkness which focuses on the Vietnam War; Dead Living Zombies, a b-grade film set against hordes of undead; and Lost on Mars, a sci-fi themed romp across the red planet. Oh, and let’s not forget that Far Cry 3 is included in the Far Cry 5 Season Pass.
