4. Far Cry 5
Set in rural Montana in the present day, the game had you fighting a cult in order to liberate Hope County. The first-person action was great here too, with some nice improvements and additions. Instead of having generic “guns for hire”, you could recruit any of nine “specialists”.
These include colorful personalities like Hurk – a recurring character in the series who wields a rocket launcher, and has the attitude to match too. There’s also Nick Rye, a pilot who wants to kick (or rather bomb) the cultists to death… Far Cry 5 removed some of the series’ old chores too, such as having to skin animals in order to make weapon holsters thanks to a new perk system, making this a shining entry in Ubisoft’s ass-kicking series.
