Set in America, Far Cry 5 is set in fictional Hope County, Montana, where players will go up against a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden’s Gate, who are led by the bizarre Seed family. It’s a pretty great open-world game, though still not as good as 2012’s Far Cry 3. Check out my full review of the game here.
