Far Cry 5, the penultimate installment in the series, is already five years old and that’s exactly the reason that the game is now getting another current gen upgrade. On the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S you can use the patch to fight your way through fanatic-occupied Montana in 60 fps. But that is not all. There’s also a nice surprise for everyone who doesn’t have the game yet.
Far Cry 5 Free Play and Current Gen Patch
If you want to try Far Cry 5 first, you’ll soon have plenty of opportunity to do so. How Ubisoft in a news post announces, the title will get a free “weekend”. In Hope County, however, weekends obviously last a little longer, because the period extends from Thursday to Monday, which is five days.
- When can you play for free? March 23-27
- On which platforms does this work? PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC
By the way, you also have the opportunity to take a look at the patch with PS Plus Extra/Premium and with the Game Pass. The game is also included in the subscriptions.
What does Far Cry 5 offer? – Trial version video report
Ubisoft also reveals that you will be able to play all game modes with the higher frame rate in the future, just like the three DLCs. But there is something new not only for all fans of high frame rates. The resolution is also improved on the Current Gen. In fact, the game will offer:
- Xbox Series X: 3840×2160
- Xbox Series S: 1920×1080
- PS5: 2880×1620
What is Far Cry 5 actually about?
You can play the main story either alone or with two people in co-op, but only the host gets the game progress. In the role of a newly minted sheriff, you have to deal with religious fanatics led by Joseph Seed who have controlled and terrorized the fictional Hope County.
You can expect the usual first-person shooter action as well as an eccentric opponent. In addition to human co-op partners, you also have the option of taking NPCs or animals with you for reinforcement.
Are you looking forward to the 60 fps patch and will you try the game in the coming free days?
