Ubisoft has today revealed that upcoming patch 1.08 will finally add a Far Cry 5 photo mode. The much loved photo modes from other Ubisoft games such as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and The Crew 2 will now be unleashed in Hope County and Far Cry 5‘s expansions, and will allow more customisation than ever.

In a blog post, Ubisoft has revealed that the Far Cry 5 photo mode will allow players to change typical settings such as user interface, filters, frames, logos and field of view, but it will also allow you to change the time of day, as well as facial expressions meaning you can set up the best possible photo from whatever angle, at whatever time.

Previously players have only been able to take printscreen-style screenshots, however the new Far Cry 5 photo mode will provide full resolution and full detail for any outbound screens in the new photo mode, meaning players will be able to create the fondest of memories inside Far Cry 5 and any of its three expansions.

The Far Cry 5 1.08 Patch Notes also include a whole heap of changes in preparation for Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars due to launch later this month (the actual release date is yet to be revealed, however July is still expected). We expect both patch 1.08 and the Lost on Mars expansion will launch together early next week. Check out the patch notes after the drop:
