Last week, we got to spend four hours with Far Cry 5. Whilst there’s still a few things we can’t talk about, we’ve done our best to answer some of your questions that you sent in.
Is the game map smaller or bigger than previous Far Cry games?
No specifics have been announced as to how big Hope County is, but from what I can tell it’s looking to be the biggest map in the series so far. And considering the previous Far Cry games’ maps have been rather large, you’d have to assume this one is going to be pretty bloody big!
Is the game world more realistic? If I shoot a tree/building or place an explosive on the side of the radio tower, will they come down?
As for real-world destruction that remains throughout the game, I can confirm that’s definitely not in place. The Far Cry series has always been about having fun and enjoying yourself, and I don’t think a step into that kind of realism is happening any time soon. That said, some things remain the same after you interact with them, like Eden’s Gate outpost camps after liberation.
