Ahead of its release next week, Far Cry 5 teases its Lost on Mars DLC with a short trailer. Like its predecessor, the Hours of Darkness DLC, this expansion sees players take control of yet another citizen of Hope County, Montana, and this time players get to control Nick Rye, a gun-for-hire in the action-adventure first-person shooter game.

Players will apparently do battle against an alien race in order to “thwart an alien invasion of Earth,” according to the official description of the Lost on Mars DLC.

Ubisoft once again came under scrutiny when it showed off Tom Clancy’s: The Division 2 at E3 2018, revealing another seemingly politically charged backdrop for the game yet denying that the company is making any sort of statement with its games. The company took the same stand earlier this year when Far Cry 5, which was also placed in a very politically contentious setting, came out. Other game developers who have released games that have caused people to question their political overtones have similarly denied any political statements in their games. Detroit: Become Human’s David Cage has said his game is “mostly about androids” and Square Enix has repeatedly denied that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was inspired by or related to real world events. In an interview with The Guardian, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot finally explains the company’s reasoning behind these decisions for their games. According to Guillemot, Ubisoft truly isn’t out to send a certain … [Read more...] about Ubisoft CEO Explains Studio’s Politically Charged Games

Far Cry 5 is already Ubisoft’s fastest selling title in the franchise’s history, eclipsing its predecessor with more than double its first week sales. Gamers from around the globe have flocked to experience Ubisoft’s take on rural Montana, which released on March 27, 2018. Despite coming out at the end of the month, the latest NPD report has confirmed that Far Cry 5 was the best selling videogame of March 2018. The success of Far Cry 5 has also helped Ubisoft claim the crown as the publisher with the most year to date sales so far, no doubt due to the game stealing the top spot for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 sales. Despite the strong opening month for Far Cry 5, the title didn’t break into the top 10 selling games over the last 12 month period, with Call of Duty: World War 2 keeping its top spot locked down.
