The Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness release date has been set arriving on June 5, 2018. In this first set of expansion content players are sent back in time to the Vietnam War. You will step into the shoes of Hope County’s Wendell “Red” Redler, who must find and rescue his fellow squad members from hostile forces. Playable in solo or online co-op, Hours of Darkness transports players from rural Montana to a dangerous jungle where they must rescue imprisoned squad mates, wreak havoc on the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army, and fight to get back home by any means necessary.
It will also feature new gear and abilities as well as two different playable modes that will be unlocked after completion. The two options are Survivor Mode, giving players a limited loadout for a more challenging playthrough, and Action Movie Mode, where a generous loadout delivers over-the-top action.
Vietnam themed assets will arrive to Far Cry Arcade available on May 24 with the release of title update (TU) 6, the Vietnam Update Map Builders will be able to integrate these assets into their existing maps or create new maps focused on the Hours of Darkness theme. All future DLCs will also include thematic assets that will be added to Far Cry Arcade for free.
Additional packs, Lost on Mars and Dead Living Zombies are set to be released in July and August in 2018. Two additional asset drops will give map builders more tools to create unique Far Cry Arcade experiences. The DLC adventures are available in the Season Pass, or as standalone DLC purchases, while new asset releases for Far Cry Arcade will be available for free to all players. Hours of Darkness can be purchased as part of the Far Cry 5 Season Pass for $29.99 USD/$39.99 CAD and Gold Edition for $89.99 USD/$119.99 CAD.
