Far Cry 5 First Look: Cults, Chaos & Extremism in Montana

Far Cry 5—slated for a Feburary 27, 2018 release—takes place in the fictional Hope County, Montana. It is a region under the slow, yet steady siege of an ever-growing cult, the Project at Eden's Gate, and its attached militia force. The player is a rookie junior deputy—whose gender and race the player can determine, in a series first—who arrives just as the Project at Eden's Gate become more aggressive in their goals, and who must join up with the locals of of Hope County to form a resistance movement.

The group—whose creed is the charged "Freedom, Faith, Firearms"—has tendrils throughout the county, and this is (partly) what Hay means when he says "pressure:" a creeping presence that can not be easily tracked, with reach that exceeds your expectations. A constant awareness that however familiar the environs, you are not safe or in control.

It is a goal for Ubisoft Montreal to convey that pressure not only to the player, but to show that the fictional citizens of Hope County feel it too.
