Far Cry 5 Will Have Microtransactions, But Like Assassin's Creed Origins

Far Cry 5 has microtransactions but not loot boxes

As the first Far Cry game set in the U.S., the upcoming entry in Ubisoft's open-world shooter series has created some hot debate amongst fans and critics alike. The jury is still out on whether the game will deliver an interesting story, but what we do know about the fast-approaching sequel tells us we're in for a typically insane experience.

With Far Cry 5 just a few weeks away, Ubisoft has begun detailing what we can expect after the game's launch. It's madcap, but not in a bad way. What's more, the assets available in Arcade Mode will be drawn from other Ubisoft titles, including Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin's Creed Unity and Watch Dogs.

You'll also be able to create playlists, play official creations, and engage in all-new modes. Most of the interest in Far Cry 5 seems to stem from the doomsday cult plot (or simply Far Cry fans being happy about a new Far Cry game), so Far Cry Arcade seems like it has great potential for adding another level of enjoyment to the game. You can check out the trailer, as well as a preview of the Arcade mode, at the end of the article. Scattered throughout Hope County are olde timey Far Cry coin-operated machines that serve as an access to multiplayer team deathmatches and unique challenge maps for single player.

Eurosceptic parties surge in Italy vote, but no majority
But yesterday's poll failed to produce a clear victor , since none of the parties or coalitions won enough votes to govern alone. Di Maio noted Monday that no campaign bloc had obtained a majority and that the 5-Stars had strong showings from north to south.

Far Cry 5 will introduce a robust and versatile level editor called Far Cry Arcade which will give the community all the tools needed to create an endless stream of free content. We're going to make sure it's more visible than ever. You can purchase them all via the game's Season Pass.

In addition to all of the above, Far Cry 3: Classic Edition is also being thrown into the package.

A Ubisoft rep also said in an email to Kotaku that Far Cry Arcade will include the exact same feature set across both consoles and PC.
