With Assassin’s Creed Origins officially announced, everyone was hoping to see some gameplay from Far Cry 5. And Ubisoft did not disappoint. They started off with the “Amazing Grace” trailer posted above. From there, some actual gameplay was shown from the title and it was as chaotic and beautiful as I hoped it would be.
The gameplay walkthrough not only gave us a look at the combat involved in Far Cry 5, but we also got a look at your “guns for hire” that will assist you in taking down the Doomsday cult that has taken over Hope County. Grace Armstrong is a sniper that takes out the cultists from a nearby water tower while Boomer, the fangs for hire, takes down enemies and brings you their weapons. And then Nick Rye, a.k.a Death from Above, bombards the town with a fighter plane. However, your friends can also join in the battle. I won’t lie; Ubisoft might have stolen the show.
There is plenty more to see today with Sony’s conferences later this evening, so make sure to stick around! Here is an official schedule for your viewing pleasure. And, as always, keep an eye on The Nerd Stash as we will be showing and covering the events live!
