The new trailer for Far Cry 5 describes the team’s desire to really nail the look and feel of Montana. After visiting multiple sites, they decided to use the location for its natural beauty and animal population. There is even a quick shot of someone deer hunting with a machine gun. That is sure to bring in the tourists.
We are not sure the base PS4 will be able to replicate the amazing game captures in the trailer, but that is some pretty wilderness. The developer used photogrammetry to add real items to their digital world. We have never looked at a knot in a tree or flaking paint on a building with as much detail.
We love little details about game development too. The biggest surprise is that they added a fly fishing mini game with different lures and fish, because it was so popular in the area. It is not even a big deal in the game. There is no big fishing tournament to force the cult out of town. (It’s not a movie from the 80s where everything could be solved by an arbitrary contest. That’s why you have guns.)
Far Cry 5 is one of the most anticipated games for next year, and it is looking very slick. Whether you are strolling through the woods, catching a fish, or killing a lot of dudes in the back of a pickup truck, it has you covered.
Check out the trailer, and let us know in the comments the first thing you want to do in Montana.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
