Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness coming in June
First DLC adventure for the open world action game will launch shortly
Ubisoft has announced Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness, the first post-launch DLC adventure, will release on June 5 across all platforms.
The first DLC will transport players back in time as they play as Hope County’s Wendell “Red” Redler, who must find and rescue his fellow squad members from hostile forces during the Vietnam War.
This first DLC adventure will feature new gear and abilities as well as two different playable modes that will be unlocked after completing Hours of Darkness: 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.
Hours of Darkness can be purchased as a standalone DLC for $11.99 USD or as part of the Far Cry 5 Season Pass for $29.99 and Gold Edition for $89.99. Prices USD.
In addition to the DLC, all Far Cry 5 players will have access to new Vietnam-themed assets in Far Cry Arcade available on May 24 with the release of title update 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.
Far Cry 5 was released earlier this year on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
