    Rumor: Far Cry 5 set in Wild West 19th Century


    The setting of Far Cry 5, or whatever the next Far Cry game ends up being called, has apparently leaked online in the most unconventional way.

    Great Falls Tribune reported about a film crew shooting a live-action trailer for an unannounced game near a church in the Montana prairie. Jeff Guillot, a producer on the shoot, revealed to the paper that this is for a game to be released in September.

    I don't want to suddenly end up getting barred from the types of groups that pay me, as I count on that side money for income... and honestly, there are two other reasons I held off on talking about this for the past year. First, they made me sign a €€€€ton of paperwork promising I wouldn't tell anyone about this... and second? I really LIKE their idea for FC5, and I didn't want them to suddenly change the direction of the boat in midstream because of leaks. Since I would presume they're probably about to begin releasing plot points, I figure now's a good time to let you in on what I was told. PLEASE REMEMBER to take this with a grain of salt. I spent 2 hours learning about FC5 on a random night in 2016 at a focus group company -- I wouldn't have any more in-depth knowledge about the game, as I'm not affiliated with Ubisoft whatsoever. If you cannot believe what I'm saying... I also don't have any way to prove that what I'm saying is true, so feel free to speculate away. If it proves I don't work for Ubisoft, I'll be the first one to say that I was very happy they decided to take a year off of AC games because they're reaaaaaally goddamn close to killing the goose that laid golden eggs in the name of keeping that franchise churning out B-minus level narratives and buggy initial releases.

    So here goes.
    Last year, I participated in a focus group in a major metropolitan area, the topic of which was about video games -- I do a lot of these types of groups, but this was the first time doing one on technology. Usually they're on things like shopping, or blue jeans, or sour cream, or Taco Bell or some such. The initial screener of the group asked about the types of games we like to play -- I listed games like GTA 5, Assassin's Creed, Batman, etc. I was chosen to be part of one of the groups -- I was told there were 6 of them extending over a single day, and they'd be running these groups in many major metropolitan areas. For the privilege of being in on this group, for 2 hours of time, I got paid (IIRC) either $100 or $125, can't remember. Generally, we don't know who the client is that's asking for the group until we get there. Turns out... this was Ubisoft. I was excited because I thought maybe we'd be seeing some advanced footage of the next edition of Assassin's, but this was for Far Cry 5. Awesome, I loved 3 and 4, and tolerated Primal.

    Here's what they showed us in the group -- now keep in mind that this MUST be taken with a grain of salt, since it's been about a year now and a ton of things have likely changed.

    • The idea of doing it in Montana was the predominant idea -- like many of you, we were kind of led to believe at first that it would be a Wild West motif, just to see what we thought of that idea -- but that changed when they started to show us character profiles and other collateral. The general thrust of this game is that it will take place in present day, and feature the protagonist taking on a Jim Jones or David Koresh-like religious cult in a small town in Montana that's been populated by, essentially, Doomsday-preppers bent on furthering their cause. So, modern-day weaponry and modern-day vehicles, plus a hilly, mountainous backdrop. Honestly, it sounded at the time like they were using that to their advantage, given that when you think of Far Cry you kind of think of mountains and hills and the kind of backdrop Montana has in spades.

    • They showed us some basic promotional videos featuring a heavily -- HEAVILY -- religious angle to the evil. A person (presumably the protagonist) walking through a town that was completely empty, only to walk into a church to discover the congregation is made up of everyone in town staring in rapt attention at a shirtless lunatic leader brandishing an assault rifle in one hand and a Bible in the other. Even at the time, I wondered how they were going to handle the presentation of religious zealotry to the type of Middle America that purchases games for their kids. If they proceed on the path that I saw... they're not even trying to pretend. They're steering the vehicle into the curve.

    • We saw candids and profiles of many of the characters in the game -- left out of those were any kind of details about the primary protagonist, and there wasn't much on the antagonist-preacher either. Instead, we got views of what I'd presume are some of the support characters. A female mechanic (who I strongly suspect is a love interest, or someone giving you missions) who helps you. An old burnt-out hippie character. Various and sundry small-town folks. And the second-in-command bad guy, who was basically being portrayed as Tom Cruise -- an A-list celebrity who became a ranking member of the high council. There were also some oblique references to this religion sharing some commonalities with Scientology, and I wonder if those will make the cut. The only thing about the Tom Cruise cypher that didn't seem to make a hell of a lot of sense is that he was supposed to have garnered his fame, at least in partial, from working in pornography. If anything's gonna change, I'd hope it's this element, because I'm not sure small-town America's all that ready for porno-Tom-Cruise-turned-religious-nutjob-murderer.

    • We didn't learn much about weapons or vehicles, aside from the fact that they specifically mentioned the types of things we saw in FC3/4 -- ATVs, Jeeps, etc.

    • The overall feeling I got from the animatic videos we saw is that they're really playing up a sense of dread. This is a small town and is filled with small-town sensibilities, the kind of place where God's word is law, and the sense you get is that the antagonist-preacher found a perfect place for his quasi-religion to take root.

    • No word on multiplayer during this session. They were only interested in showing us stuff from the campaign, and even then just a few key elements.

    • Most of what I saw wasn't imminently memorable, with the exception of the couple characters and the cool idea of pitting the protagonist against a Branch Davidian-like cult. Mostly what the focus group was gauging was reactions to videos and still images -- asking us questions about "how this character would sound," or "does this person seem like someone you'd like to get to know" and whatnot. When it came time for open feedback, you may be happy to know that I railed them a bit for reusing the map from FC4 for Primal, which felt like lazy bullshit to me.

    Anyway, as I said -- a lot can change in a year, so please don't hold my feet to the fire if this has all changed. But for what it's worth, focus groups are EXPENSIVE to put on, so I sincerely doubt they would have scrapped the entire thing afterwards unless they'd gotten exceptionally negative feedback... and I can tell you that the feedback given by the group members in my session were all exceptionally positive. Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing if some or all of what I was shown will be coming true. I like Far Cry a lot, and I want it to get back to the days when the antagonists were charismatic and dangerous.

    Anyway, again, I apologize that I have no concrete proof of any of this. I dug the €€€€ out of the ideas they showed me though.

Although I sincerely doubt it's a cop unless he's working undercover. I don't know. The protag just seemed like a fish out of water, or having just stumbled upon the town on his own through happenstance to me, but that may be reading too much into what I saw.

    We saw first-person animatics of a person walking through a desolate downtown area while piped-in religious screeds were being played through speakers wired through the town, all the way up to the church doors. When the doors opened, the antagonist preacher was ranting about something while his congregation of gun-toting salt-of-the-earthers watched in quiet awe. That doesn't seem very cop-like to me, but I'm happy to be proven wrong.
    Focus Group = The parent mentioned Focus Group . Many people, including non-native speakers, may be unfamiliar with this word. Here is the definition: (In beta, be kind)
    A focus group is a form of qualitative research in which a group of people are asked about their perceptions, opinions, beliefs, and attitudes towards a product, service, concept, advertisement, idea, or packaging. Questions are asked in an interactive group setting where participants are free to talk with other group members. During this process, the researcher either takes notes or records the vital points he or she is getting from the group. Care should be noted to select members of the group carefully for effective and authoritative ... [View More]

    Here are some tidbits :

    • Modern times setting (if the artwork wasn't obvious enough). The teaser has propane tanks for heat and cooking. Also a telephine tower.

    • Someone is banging someine's head off in the bell to ring it.

    My probable next build: Qisan MagicForce 68 (Outemu switch) / Teamwolf Zhuque+ 87 TKL (Outemu) / Monoprice Select series full size (Outemu/Gateron) / Drevo Gramr 84 TKL (Outemu) • Logitech G102 Prodigy • Deepcool Dukase V3 / Thermaltake Versa U21 • Superlux HD 681 • Creative Sound Blaster E1 • LG 22MP68VQ • SteelSeries QcK • Generic executive chair • others TBA
