So... “New Dawn”. No one is talking Zombie Apocalypse? Crossbow that shoots saw blades? Kindom armour? Overgrown buildings? A Darryl motorcycle? Everything looks cobbled together and that screams post-apocalyptic to me.
“New Dawn” and in pink might mean those two are actually the protagonists.
That’s the Night’s King before the Children of the Forest stab him up, right?
It took all my will power seeing this not to just type out a huge string of pleasebetheprotagonists over and over. I actually haven’t gotten around to Far Cry 5 yet, though the cover of this one and a single screenshot from the teaser makes me suspect how it ends.
Fuuuucking what is this?!
There was minor customization, mostly just extended magazines and different sights/scopes along with a selection of paint jobs for each weapon.
“I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a black woman on the cover of a video game, let alone two of them.”
Seeing how they didn’t flinch at all and dove head first into what was a really awesome introspection on Tea Party politics and religious fundamentalism in Far Cry V this story is going to be amazing.
It looks kind of like the set from Annihilation with Natalie Portman.
Did the other games have weapon crafting?
This box art owns, and it’s giving me opportunities to mock and insult insecure misogynists and racists on twitter like you wouldn’t believe
It certainly has grabbed my attention. I’m also interested to see whether, if it turns out the characters are villains, will people still be excited that black women are represented on the cover? Or will it become a problem, because they are villains?
With all those flowers and flora over everything, it gives me the feeling like they’re all having a Bliss fueled hallucination. That would be an interesting twist, apocalypse and Bliss filtered versions of the map.
This is totally badass and I want more.
Odds that they will reuse the same map?
They look rad as hell! I hope they’re the heroes or an ally of the player. I wanna be their friend, I don’t want to have to fight them.
Shocked they didn’t go with “sassy/angry black woman with an afro and hoop earings”
Its part of the FarCry series... so I think you have your answer.
I find it interesting that overwatch is the stick in which we measure character diversity in gaming. Battleborn, which was overshadowed by OW, had an extremely diverse cast of characters but received little to no recognition for it.
Oh neat they made FarCry DLC for Fortnite.
