Far Cry 5 was released in spring of 2018 with co-op baked into the campaign all the way through. While the game itself was awarded a 3.5 out of 5 by Co-Optimus, we also gave the co-op in the game a 4 out of 5, pointing out the clunky story which can be overlooked as you romp around with a friend across Montana. The full review by Enoch Stames can be found here.

Far Cry 5 Co-Op Stream RecapJason Love

I've not played any Far Cry 5, but everything I've seen/read/heard of the game basically points me to "play it in co-op and have some dumb fun," which works for me. Mike and Nick do their best to show off some of that by luring one another to various vehicles before blowing them up, using a gravity gun to juggle bears, and jumping out of planes mid-flight and leaving the other person behind in the passenger seat. Honestly, that seems like the best way to play it, considering your co-op buddy doesn't earn of the story progression by playing the game with you.

It took me a while to decide how I felt about Far Cry 5. I can’t tell you how many times I flipped back and forth on scores and talking points during my time with it, but what I can tell you is that, moment to moment, it’s a fun game. It really is. But it’s also a game that Ubisoft didn’t seem to trust to stand on its own&nb...

Last week we had a look at a goofy live action TV spot / ad. Looks like the Hope County Board of Tourism finally got that extra funding to shoot a promo video, but they forgot to edit out the massive amounts of carnage and animal attacks. Or maybe that's just part of the Big Sky State's charm.

Similar to recent Far Cry releases, the protagonist must work closely with the local factions if they want to really stick it to the baddies.  In FC5, they'll be filling a "Resistance Meter", which unlocks more allies and (presumably) weaponry as it progresses.  What do these allies do, exactly?  Well, I bet you can guess, but check out the trailer below if you want to see them in action.

The Friend for Hire system has been built into the game since day one meaning that Ubisoft had co-op in mind throughout.  This means that the entire campaign and all the side missions are open to play in co-op, all you have to do is finish the introduction and invite a friend.

Ubisoft dropped an eight minute guided gameplay video of Far Cry 5 on Monday while everyone was busy definitely not looking at the sun. There's no specific discussion of the campaign co-op in this, but you can at least get an idea of what you and your buddy will be able to do together (like flying a plane or stopping "horse bapti...

The past couple Far Cry games have allowed for some limited "co-opportunities" in the form of raiding outposts or taking on co-op missions in a separate mode. For Far Cry 5, though, players will be able to create their custom character and then team up together to take down the Eden's Gate cult. The game also boasts the usual open world to explore, as well as an array of weapons to collect and customize, vehicles to crash into other things, and no doubt a small mountain of collectibles to gather.

As with all of these bundles the number of games you get depends on your spend.  For as little as a dollar you can pick up the 4 player co-op Rayman Origins.  The game is great fun and racked up an immense 4.5 out of 5 in our Co-Optimus review.  Your $1 also gets you the none co-op games Grow Home and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.
