New Far Cry 5 Hours of Darkness Teaser Trailer

Something something napalm, something something morning. You guessed it, Far Cry 5 is heading to Vietnam and Ubisoft has today revealed a Hours of Darkness teaser trailer.

In the new Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness teaser trailer we see a complete mix-up of Far Cry 5 gameplay, with a very different setting to what we were used to in Hope County, Montana. There will be VC, there will be trenches and tunnels, and most importantly there will be choppers to get to!

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed Far Cry 5 when it launched in March 2018, giving it 4 stars and calling it, “a possible Game of the Year contender”.

The first DLC for Far Cry 5 will launch on June 5, 2018. Check out the official Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness Teaser Trailer below:


Escape from behind enemy lines in war-torn Vietnam and get your squad to the extraction zone! Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness transports players into a war-torn Vietnam as they relive the harrowing experience of Wendell Redler from the main campaign of Far Cry 5. Playable in solo or online co-op, Hours of Darkness transports players from rural Montana to a dangerous jungle where they must rescue imprisoned squad mates, wreak havoc on the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army, and fight to get back home by any means necessary.

This first DLC adventure will feature new gear and abilities as well as two different playable modes that will be unlocked after completing Hours of Darkness: Survivor Mode, giving players a limited loadout for a more challenging playthrough, and Action Movie Mode, where a generous loadout delivers over-the-top action.

Season Pass and Gold Edition owners will also be happy to hear that their Far Cry 3 Remastered edition will be available on May 29, offering an improved insanity experience. A standalone Far Cry 3 Remastered will be released on June 26 for everyone else. Also planned for Far Cry 5 are a zombie themed expansion, and also a DLC pack that will take you all the way to Mars.

Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness will be available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms on June 5, 2018. For more information, head to the official Far Cry website.
