It’s Far Cry like never before (hopefully).
Far Cry took the year off in 2017, just as Assassin’s Creed had the year before that, but Ubisoft’s massive open world first person shooter franchise is coming back. Far Cry 5 is almost upon us, and if the developers’ claims are to be believed, then it’s going to be a little different from its immediate predecessors. There’s quite a lot of interesting stuff to talk about in Far Cry 5, and in this feature, we’ve picked out fifteen such things. Without further ado, let’s get right into it.
NO MORE MINI-MAP
One of the biggest changes Ubisoft is making with Far Cry 5 is the removal of the mini map. The mini map became a staple of the franchise after Far Cry 3, featuring in the 2012 games and all the series sequels that followed. However, similar to Far Cry 2, Far Cry 5 won’t feature a mini map. Ubisoft have made this change in order to encourage more seamless and natural exploration of the game world, rather than having players constantly looking at the map on the bottom of their screen to figure out where to go next.
