The game launches October 27th 2017 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC with 4K support for the newly announced Xbox One X.
Far Cry 5: Even though Ubisoft Montreal had already revealed Far Cry 5 just a few weeks ago, (and it caused quite a stir given its subject matter and themse) They still gave us some lengthy gameplay footage to drool over.
