Far Cry 5’s story will be playable in co-op with the “Friends for Hire” mode, and Ubisoft shared a new trailer to demonstrate what’s coming at Paris Games Week 2017.
In this mode, players will be able to team up with one of their friends to free Hope County from the Project at Eden’s Gate cult.
Immediately following the in-game tutorial, Far Cry 5 will be playable via online co-op. All earned experience and inventory items, excluding quest-based items, will carry over following each co-op session. While exploring Montana, each player will see and collect their own loot. However, the host player is the only player who will keep their story progress.
To help players in their mission to take down the cult, the host player will still be able to recruit “Guns For Hire” or “Fangs for Hire” keeping in mind that you can have up to two buddies, with one being another player, join you in your squad. Far Cry 5 “Friends For Hire” two-player co-op will allow players to explore Hope County and take down the Project at Eden’s Gate in a surprising and chaotic new fashion expanding the possibility of the game’s open world.
Far Cry 5 releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 27, 2018.
