Those who buy the Season Pass (or Far Cry 5 Gold Edition) will continue their uncanny adventures in the following three pieces of DLC:

  • Hours of Darkness: Players will travel back in time to Vietnam to battle against Việt Cộng soldiers and save their fellow soldiers
  • Dead Living Zombies: Players will team up with friends to fight waves of zombies across seven different scenarios cooked up by a b-movie director
  • Lost on Mars: Players will leave Earth behind to go toe-to-claws with martian arachnids to save Earth from an alien invasion

All Far Cry 5 Season Pass owners on consoles will receive the single-player content from Far Cry 3 Classic Edition. This will be available to season pass holders four weeks prior to launching as a standalone purchase in summer 2018. PC players can get the full version of Far Cry 3 at a later date, following the launch of Far Cry 5.

Finally, all Far Cry 5 players will have access to Far Cry Arcade. This is an evolution of the map editor, and will deliver a large amount of free gameplay and map creation opportunities for players. Included are assets from previous Far Cry games, along with assets from other Ubisoft titles, including Watch_Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and Assassin’s Creed Unity. Plays can make solo, co-op and PvP multiplayer experiences.
