Ubisoft reveal the contents of the Far Cry 5 season pass, which includes some frightfully weird additions and an old friend.
You’ve been to Montana, you beat the cult, and you even got the
lousy t-shirt hideous figurine of the cult’s leader. What do you do next, in Far Cry 5’s world?
Well Ubisoft would very much like you to purchase the Far Cry 5 season pass. Or alternatively, purchase the Far Cry 5 Gold Edition, which includes all of the season pass content.
“What content?” I hear you mutter. Why, this content:
- Hours of Darkness: Players will travel back in time to Vietnam to battle against Việt Cộng soldiers
- Dead Living Zombies: Players will face hordes of zombies in multiple b-movie scenarios
- Lost on Mars: Players will leave Earth behind to go toe-to-claws with Martian arachnids
For those of you who pick up the season pass or Gold Edition on console, you’ll also receive all of the single-player story content from Far Cry 3 Classic Edition as an added bonus, which is nice.
All of that stuff seems quite far-fetched, though, doesn’t it? Between the time travel and the zombies and the Martians, and then playing a different game from the series entirely, the Far Cry 5 season pass seems to be working quite hard to take you away from its more domestic – and ultimately, much more unsettling as a result – slice of (far-)right-on-your-doorstep Americana.
Which is a shame. All of that stuff from the main game, the stuff that’s making people feel uncomfortable? That’s what makes Far Cry 5 the most interesting game in the series for a long time.
Far Cry 5 launches for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on March 27th, 2018.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
