As mentioned prior to the game’s launch, Far Cry 5 will have three major DLC packs released throughout the upcoming months. In the first one, Hours of Darkness, players are taken back in time to the Jungles of Vietnam.
Taking place during the Vietnam War, players assume the role of Hope County’s Wendell “Red” Redler who must find his fellow squad members from the hostile forces lurking in the jungles.
Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness transports players into a war-torn Vietnam as they relive the harrowing experience of Wendell Redler from the main campaign of Far Cry 5. Playable in solo or online co-op, Hours of Darkness transports players from rural Montana to a dangerous jungle where they must rescue imprisoned squad mates, wreak havoc on the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army, and fight to get back home by any means necessary. This first DLC adventure will feature new gear and abilities as well as two different playable modes that will be unlocked after completing Hours of Darkness: Survivor Mode, giving players a limited loadout for a more challenging playthrough, and Action Movie Mode, where a generous loadout delivers over-the-top action.
The Hours of Darkness DLC is available now for all players that own the Gold Edition or Season Pass for Far Cry 5 or as a stand-alone purchase for $11.99.
