Hours of Darkness, Which is the first of three DLC expansions planned for Far Cry 5, New DLC will be out on June 5, Ubisoft announced today. The expansion will take you to the sweltering jungles of the Vietnam War, where local boy Wendell “Red” Redler will begin a mission to rescue his captured mates.
The expansion will add new weapons to the game, including the M16 rifle, the SVD sniper rifle, and the M60 machine gun, all of which will also be usable in the main campaign. You’ll also have the ability to call in “bombing airstrikes,” which will deliver more shock and awe than Hurk’s mom’s helicopter, and a new Survival Instinct feature that allows up to four temporary perks for accumulating stealth kills.
Once the DLC campaign is complete, a pair of new game modes will also unlock in Survival Mode, which Ubisoft said will give a more “authentic experience,” and Action Movie Mode. And from today, all players, including those who don’t purchase the DLC, will have access to Vietnam-themed assets in the Far Cry Arcade.
Ubisoft also shared what’s coming after Hours of Darkness. Final dates haven’t been set yet but the Lost on Mars expansion is set to arrive in July, followed by Dead Living Zombies in August.
