Ubisoft showed off a new gameplay trailer for the highly-anticipated Far Cry 5, highlighting what they call the ‘for-hire’ system, including guns-for-hire, fangs-for-hire, and friends-for-hire. This allows you to bring A.I. partners, either human or canine, into the fray, giving you many more tactical options, as well as co-op in the form of friends-for-hire.
Human A.I. partners can give you support following your orders, up close or from a distance, as seen by the sniper in the trailer (below), while your canine companions will get up close and personal, attacking enemies and disarming them, bringing the weapons to you after the danger is gone!
They also showed off the ‘Resistance Meter,’ allowing for a good challenge no matter your skill level. The better you perform, the tougher (and smarter) the cultists get.
Far Cry 5 releases on February 27, 2018 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4.
