‘Far Cry 5’ has a cult-fighting dog

by John_A

The next Far Cry is based in America, and our first glimpse of gameplay at Ubisoft’s E3 2017 press event suggests a game where your band of misfit guns for hire are pretty darn important — and one of them is a dog. Amazing Grace formed the soundtrack for the Far Cry 5 intro, sung by one of the antagonists as he holds a pretty darn meaty gun in the middle of a church.

The gameplay teaser places the player right in the middle cult territory, with your team. From there, your squad approaches said cult church, which has a flaming cross casually hanging outside the front. Some poor soul gets beaned with a baseball bat while you approach the area cautiously. Then all hell breaks loose, regardless. We get introduced to Grace, your sniper support, Boomer (the dog!) who will fetch weapons for you — and tackle anyone in your way. There’s also Nick Rye, your air support. Co-op mode will recruit your online friends to help — perhaps in the form of a giant truck ramming those cultists.

If you’ve missed Fallout 4’s Dogmeat, there’s a new virtual canine companion that wants your love. And justice. Or something. Far Cry 5 launches on February 27th across PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
