Far Cry 5 Teasers Confirm American Setting, Full Reveal This Week

Ubisoft has released four teasers that officially confirm Far Cry 5's setting: Montana. The scenery appears to be on the modern side, so those rumors of the game taking place in the Wild West may have been a total fabrication. We'll be seeing more of the game on Friday, when the full reveal happens. (For some reason, the teasers on YouTube are blocked in the US, but you can hit up the IGN link to see them.)

...the game will take place in the US - specifically the state of Montana - for the first time in the series' history. The short trailers end with a message saying that the game will be revealed this Friday, May 26. Each one shows an image of rural America, then puncture the peace with an unsettling image (the man being used as a face-based bellringer is pretty unpleasant). They also seem to counter rumours that said the game would take place in a Wild West setting (which would put it in more direct competition with this year's Red Dead Redemption 2) - clothing, weapons and buildings look more modern than the Old West would suggest.
