Far Cry Arcade is an Anachronistic Wonderland

  • Far Cry 5 has microtransactions but not loot boxes

Rather than just be reachable through the game's main menu, Far Cry Arcade will be incorporated into Far Cry 5 proper by way of arcade machines littered about the map and posters, both of which will be entry points for people looking to try out new activities and modes created by other players.

"In the first, Hours of Darkness, you'll be thrown into war-ravaged Vietnam and have to fight your way through enemy forces, rescue POWs, and try to evac amidst the chaos".

Far Cry 5 will contain cosmetic microtransactions but will not feature loot boxes.

"Far Cry Arcade is also at the heart of Far Cry 5's PvP multiplayer, which we sampled in Beach Brawl, an 12-player team deathmatch map set on a surreal beach filled with shacks and ruins to hide in, and dominated by huge rusting cannons and enormous Buddhist statues straight out of Kyrat". It will also include Far Cry 3: Classic Edition, a fully remastered version of the Vaas led game that played a huge role in making Far Cry as popular as it is today. But the biggest difference is that Far Cry Arcade will also offer assets from Far Cry 5, 4, Primal, Assassin's Creed Unity, Black Flag and Watch Dogs, adding up to over 7000 objects, with more being added from the aforementioned DLC campaigns, as they launch. And, finally, Dead Living Zombies sees you and a friend take on waves of zombies in seven different scenarios, Call of Duty style. It sounds as though Ubisoft has grand plans for Far Cry Arcade, promising to support it post-release with creation contests, new content, and more.

Far Cry 5 will release on March 27.

After spending some time playing the game at a Ubisoft press event in Livermore, CA-which included a crossbow range and tons of barbecue-we took some time to discuss what Far Cry 5 is setting out to do.

And if all of that isn't enough for you, how about a free game? PC players will receive full access to Far Cry 3 at a "later date".
