Playing games in Far Cry Arcade earns you money and perks for the main game, so there's a reason to dip in.
The Arcade will be accessible straight from the single-player campaign by stepping up to an arcade machine in any bar that you visit.
Last month, Ubisoft detailed what the Far Cry 5 season pass would bring along, including several freakish storylines that have players fighting Martians, zombies, and the Vietcong, as well as a copy of Far Cry 3.
Elsewhere, the publishing behemoth revealed that it will be hosting various live events for the game, which will reward participants with customisation items, such as unique weapon and vehicle skins. Ubisoft said the map editor will include more than 7,000 different objects that players can use to customize their levels with. In the above video, Aaron Sampson, Jean-Luc Seipke, Mike Mahardy, and Alessandro Fillari had a chat about how Far Cry 5 handles its topics and the current timing of its release, while also reveling in the sort of open-world hijinks that players would expect from the series.
In addition to all of the above, Far Cry 3: Classic Edition is also being thrown into the package. We've added much more content for people to use for their maps and added content from other Ubisoft titles such as Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs.
Far Cry Arcade is an evolution of the Far Cry map editor available to all Far Cry 5 players. It sounds as though Ubisoft has grand plans for Far Cry Arcade, promising to support it post-release with creation contests, new content, and more.
And if all of that isn't enough for you, how about a free game?
