Xbox Game Pass has a new game, and it happens to be one of the most controversial games of the last generation of consoles. Aside from being controversial, the game – which has been added to both the PC and console versions of the subscription service – is also pretty good. The game is mentioned with the support of Ubisoft, the French game maker best known for Assassin’s Creed and Cry away. You’re not assassinating an entire small country in the new Xbox Game Pass, but blowing up half of Montana. That’s right, Far Cry 5 Now available on Xbox Game Pass.
When Far Cry 5 was released, it was controversial for several reasons. You can read the game’s lengthy “controversy” above Wikipedia for much more, but it drew heat from both sides of the political spectrum for its commentary on religion, far-right political ideologies, and rural America. It is also controversial because it is markedly different from previous installments in terms of design. And more Cry away fans didn’t like these changes, these changes have been carried over Far Cry 6. That said, it’s not just the best seller Cry away game to date, but it was the best-selling Ubisoft game of the entire last console generation, proving controversial in terms of sales.
Released in 2018, the game earned a Metacritic score of 78 to 82, depending on the platform. If you’ve played it, you know it has a great soundtrack, engaging characters, and some great moments and cutscenes that carry another trivia. It also has one of the best openings and endings of any last generation of consoles. On the contrary, this is a poor and outdated open world design and a repetitive play loop.
“Cry away comes to America in the latest installment of the award-winning series, “read an official game pitch.” Welcome to Hope County, Montana, the land of the free and brave but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult known as Eden’s Gate. Stand up to cult leaders Joseph Seed, and his siblings, the Heralds, to ignite the flames of protest and free the besieged community. “
At the moment, it’s not clear how long Far Cry 5 will be available through Xbox Game Pass, but should be for a few months at least. As long as it’s available with the subscription service, all subscribers can purchase the game outright and its DLC, with a 20 percent discount.
