Starting tonight, at 11 pm AEST, Far Cry 5 will be free on PC. Players will need to head to the Uplay client and download Far Cry 5 and will have until 6 am AEST on June 1 to play without purchase. This free weekend grants access to the base game and will allow players to play co-op with any Far Cry 5 owner.
Ubisoft has enabled preloading so you still have two hours two download before the free period begins.
As part of the free weekend, Ubisoft is offering discounts of up to 75% on all Far Cry titles’ PC Standard and Gold Editions until June 2 on the Ubisoft Store.
Far Cry 5
Set in America, in the state of Montana, Far Cry 5 gives players free range to explore Hope Country and attempt to put a stop the the doomsday cult, Project at Eden’s Gate. Players will have all manner of vehicles, weapons and activities at the fingertips.
Any progress made during the free weekend will carry over if you purcashe the full-game.
In our review, we gave Far Cry 5 an 8.5/10 and wrote;
There are so many positive things to say about Far Cry 5 which is odd because it doesn’t seem to preach any positives. It’s a deeply bleak experience, punctuated by the slowly unfolding suspicion that you may be going insane the more you play.
You can’t stop though and when you finally finish, Far Cry 5 will stay with you as it has with me.
Head to the Far Cry 5 free weekend website and start playing tonight.
