Console players who buy the season pass will also have access to Far Cry 3: Classic Edition's single-player content four weeks ahead of its release this summer. And of course the map editor is meant to be the backbone of PvP in Far Cry 5, meaning you'll be able to compete across whatever quirky, player-created maps Ubisoft has made a decision to feature in a given week.
With today's announcement of Far Cry Arcade, Far Cry 5's map editor and competitive multiplayer component, Ubisoft has also outlined some of the free activities that will make up the game's post-launch content plans. This mode is no big news since its a feature going back to Farcry 2, nothing was ever this huge though.
All have their own motivations and specific skillsets that can help players in their mission against Eden's Gate - sidekick Hurk even returns from the previous two games, and AI companions can also be brought into the "Far Cry 5 co-operative modes".
Far Cry 5's Arcade Mode will be constantly supported and updated with new content to make sure players always have something to play. A preview of the game's three announced DLC packs - Hours of Darkness, Lost on Mars and Dead Living Zombies - is embedded above.
And you get to create your own lead character for the first time, ramping up on the RPG elements.
Far Cry 5 live events are free limited-time challenges that test skills players have gained over the course of the game by giving them goals to work towards. They mention outfits, weapons, and vehicles you won't be able to get anywhere else.
Take a look at some screenshots below.
Far Cry 5 will be released on PS4, XBox One and PC on Tuesday 27 March, and Far Cry 5: Inside Eden's Gate is available to watch on Amazon Prime right now. The season pass content is yet to receive a release window, but we'll let you know as soon as it does.
