The first trailer for Far Cry 5 feels oddly prescient. The latest entry in the open-world shooter franchise by Ubisoft takes place in a fictional area of Montana called Hope County. In it, you're fighting a cult of disenfranchised, hyper-religious Americans who turn to violence.

"My children, I'm here to tell you that suffering is a choice." The cult leader calmly bestows these words upon his faithful as the game shows the scenery you'll be exploring. The announcement trailer finishes with a few action-packed sequences showing off the series' trademark shooting.

You'll be tasked with freeing the town from the grip of the cult. Check out the trailer below. Far Cry 5 is due out on February 27, 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
