New Far Cry 5 Trailer Shares More on Co-op Play

Far Cry 5 co-op trailer screen hunting

Check out the trailer below for a bit of a visual on the Friends for Hire co-op system. There's not much gameplay, but what we do see is the idea of being able to play the game with a friend online. The game has been detailed to feature an evolving world that "adapts and reacts to the choices you make", as well as being an open world experience.

It's not that big a surprise seeing co-op in a game like this, though its implementation will be the big question. Far Cry 4 did have co-op mode. In Far Cry 4, the main plot missions were single player only. Your friend keeps all their progression as a player, and retains any cash, guns, perks or loot they earn (except items unlocked by missions).

Next year's Far Cry 5 fixes that, but it introduces a few of its own problems. You can get up to some truly insane stunts with a friend or even complete strangers. We like a Horde mode, but the very best co-op is when you can play a game together - all the game. While disappointing, it does ensure that one player can't skip half the game's plot if they play with a friend.

Far Cry 5 is heading our way in February.

Far Cry 5 thrusts players into the role of the new junior deputy of Hope County, Montana who's already dealing with the doomsday cult Project at Eden's Gate soon after the beginning of the game.

Ubisoft has just released another trailer for the upcoming Far Cry 5.

As Andy told us back in May, co-operative play in Far Cry 5 will be available across the game's entire campaign.
