Far Cry 5- New Update Adds A Photo Mode

Photo Mode is just one of the many additions in this new update, however.

Posted By | On 05th, Jul. 2018

A new update for Far Cry 5 is now out that, among other things, adds a new Photo Mode to the game. The Photo Mode, which does exactly what you expect a Photo Mode to do, lets you take pictures of the game’s beautiful sandbox, set in Montana, USA.

Given that the one thing you can always count on Far Cry games for, even if you don’t necessarily like the games themselves, is them being gorgeous and pretty. So now you will be able to admire all of that in peace, without having to worry about things moving out of (or into) your way. You can use the Photo Mode in any single player mode in the game, allowing you to adjust the time of day and field of view, as well as apply filters, frames, and even change your character’s expression. It’s standard fare, but no less appreciated.

You can find the full patch notes for the update below. Far Cry 5 is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
