Far Cry 5 DLC ‘Hours of Darkness’ launches June 5

Relive the harrowing experience of Wendell Redler.

Far Cry 5 DLC 'Hours of Darkness'

Ubisoft will release Far Cry 5 downloadable content “Hours of Darkness” on June 5 for $11.99 or as part of the Far Cry 5 Season Pass and Gold Edition.

Here is an overview of the add-on, via Ubisoft:

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.

In addition to the downloadable content, all Far Cry 5 players will have access to new Vietnam-themed assets in Far Cry Arcade starting today with the release of Title Update #6. Vietnam Update map builders will be able to integrate these assets into their existing maps or create new maps focused on the “Hours of Darkness” theme. All future add-ons will also include thematic assets that will be added to Far Cry Arcade for free.

The remaining two Far Cry 5 downloadable content adventures—“Lost on Mars” and “Dead Living Zombies”—will launch in July and August, respectively, and two additional asset drops will give map builders more tools to create unique Far Cry Arcade experiences.

Far Cry 5 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
