Far Cry 5

It is now your job to unravel the mysteries and potential dangers with the help of various county residents, whom together form The Resistance. While tracking down cult members and gathering resources for survival across farmland, forests, mountains and rivers, players can get behind the wheel of iconic American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs and boats. Players must eliminate 10 animals using fire, but they can not use Molotovs or the flamethrower weapon.

Just a couple of days ago, we posted that Far Cry 5 was off to a good start on Steam, selling 500,000 copies within a matter of days. Ubisoft proudly shared that sales figures for the game doubled the first week numbers for Far Cry 4, which is really impressive considering the former game also launched on PS3 and Xbox 360.

The weekly Far Cry 5 challenges will unlock rewards should you complete them.

"We are humbled by players' reception of Far Cry 5 and fired up to keep growing and supporting the Far Cry community in the months and years to come", said the game's executive producer Dan Hay.

So, if you were worrying that Far Cry might be suffering from franchise fatigue, it looks like that isn't a problem the series needs to worry about yet.

As you can expect scores and quotes from IGN, Gamespot, PlayStation Universe, and more are shown throughout the video with gameplay.

There are several ways to set fire to animals in Far Cry 5 that don't involve the flamethrower or Molotov, from the fire arrow to the fix torch.

The Gold edition ($89.99) includes all Deluxe Edition bonus content as well as Season Pass access and day 1 MBP sniper rifle.

Well Done, as this first Live Event is called, tasks you with killing animals using fire.
