Pre-order Far Cry 5 – Out Tuesday 27th February; the cheapest pre-order prices around

Ubisoft has unveiled the latest entry into the long-running Far Cry franchise to be the appropriately titled Far Cry 5, due for release on Tuesday, 27th February 2017. This instalment sees the series’ shift away from tropical islands and into the rocky mountains of Montana, USA. Here are the very best pre-order prices and editions on offer for Far Cry 5.

Not only is Far Cry 5 the first entry in the Ubisoft-owned franchise to be set within the United States but it is also the first numbered entry since 2014 – the series made room last year for Far Cry Primal, an early-man-centric spin-off title – and has, in fact, been in development since Far Cry 3 was completed.

Far Cry 5 sees players stepping into the role of a Sheriff’s deputy who arrives in the fictional locale of Hope County, Montana to discover that the entire region has been occupied and very nearly taken over by a doomsday cult, the religious extremists of The Project at Eden’s Gate. Eden’s Gate is led by the game’s main antagonist, Joseph Seed who also likes to call himself ‘The Father’. If Joseph is even half as charismatic and present as previous Far Cry villains Vaas Montenegro and Pagan Min were, he’s likely to be one of the highlights of the game, however terrifying he seems.

Gameplay-wise, the title retains many of the well-established Far Cry formula – a vast open-world, crafting, hunting, etc – as well as adding a few key features. Notably, Far Cry 5 is the first in the series to allow players to choose their own gender and skin tone. Additionally, this entry sees a return of the Far Cry Map Editor as well as co-operative play, although this time the entire single-player campaign can be played entirely in online co-op. Players will also be able to recruit non-player characters as well as utilise wild animals to create an advantage mid-combat. The game retains the Guns For Hire backup summoning mechanic from previous titles and even adds the new Fangs For Hire mechanic, in case you want to summon a pack of aggressive pups for your enemies to battle.

As for the editions of the game, this being a Ubisoft title there are just about as many different versions as you’ve probably come to expect from the company. Far Cry 5 is getting the full big title release Ubisoft treatment, getting not only a standard edition of the game but a Deluxe Edition, Gold Edition, a Steelbook Gold Edition and a pre-order bonus to boot. Here’s what the breakdown of all that looks like.

Pre-order bonus: Doomsday Prepper Pack – a digital pack that includes prepper outfit, gun and vehicle skins as well as a set of additional consumables to use in-game.

Far Cry 5 Deluxe Edition contents: 

The Deluxe Edition gets you mmediate access to additional weapons, explosives, vehicles and skins. These include:

  • The Big Game Hunter Pack
  • The Ace Pilot Pack
  • The Explosive Pack
  • The Chaos Pack
  • AR-C Assault Rifle & .44 Magnum Handgun with unique skins

Far Cry 5 Gold Edition contents:

The Gold Edition of the game will get you everything included in the Deluxe Edition as well as the game’s Season Pass, which promises a whole slew of downloadable content over the year following the game’s release.

Right, with all that out of the way, let’s take a look at where you can get all the above editions for the cheapest prices. Keep in mind that while this page will be kept as up to date as possible, there’s always a change these prices can change at a moment’s notice.
