Ubisoft teases the Montana locations of Far Cry 5 with a series of disturbing tourism videos.
Well, these are creepy. Ubisoft has released four “Welcome to Hope County” teaser trailers that show off the setting for Far Cry 5. The game itself will get a full reveal this Friday.
As a teaser campaign, it’s really nicely done, and confirms the fictional Montana-based location that has been rumoured for a number of weeks. Each video is a bucolic tourism-style vignette that ends with a disturbing punchline.
Welcome to Hope County – #1
Welcome to Hope County – #2
Welcome to Hope County – #3
Welcome to Hope County – #4
As well as the full unveiling of Far Cry 5 on Friday, May 26, we expect to see a lot more of the game at E3. Make a date to watch Ubisoft’s E3Press Conference, which is now scheduled for Monday, June 12 at 1pm.
