Far Cry 5 Co-Op Will Only Be Playable Online, No Local Co-Op
Ubisoft has revealed the Far Cry 5 and fans are excited about the game. Ubisoft has been revealing new details about the game’s singleplayer, multiplayer and co-op components. While the studio has confirmed that the co-op will be available for the entire campaign of Far Cry 5 but, the studio has also revealed that players won’t be able to play Far Cry 5 co-op locally.
A Ubisoft representative told Polygon that Far Cry 5 co-op will only be playable through online and players will not be able to play co-op locally. However, no reason behind this decision was revealed hopefully Ubisoft might include local co-op in future.
Also, Ubisoft has revealed that the game’s protagonist will not be an average Joe but will be a junior deputy who will be going in as support a warrant against the Father, game’s antagonist. According to Ubisoft, the studio wants the game to feel like “Training Day”.
This time it’s two-fold. What we want to be able to do is allow you to be you. We want you to be able to effectively build the character you want. Secondly, we want to put you in a situation where you’re a junior deputy going in to support the serving of a warrant against the Father. What we did with that was make it feel like a training day. A lot of time in games you’ll go in and you’ll have an experience where you go from zero-to-hero in five minutes. What we wanted with Far Cry 5 is this idea that you’re going in and maybe you had some knowledge, but not experience.
Far Cry 5 is an open-world first-person shooter in development at Ubisoft and is scheduled to launch on February 27, 2018, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
