The video game is scheduled for release sometime before April 2018, and the teaser indicated that a full announcement trailer is coming this Friday, May 26.
MONTANA---Far Cry 5 will tell the story of a militant Christian cult, if a piece of artwork released today by publisher Ubisoft is any indication. There’s a lot to analyze in the image, which you can view in full below. It features seven characters arrayed around a table à la Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, with the central Christ figure wearing yellow-tinted hunting glasses and sitting in front of an open book. That brings us back to the religious elements of this artwork, which suggest that these individuals adhere to a perversion of Christianity. Next to the book, in front of the Jesus figure, you can see the elements of the Eucharist: a goblet of wine and a piece of bread. [More]
