Far Cry 5 is set to launch 27, February next year, and Ubisoft revealed a little more details regarding their co op mode “Friends For Hire” at PlayStation’s Media Showcase in Paris.
Already from launch will players be able to team up with one friend to free Hope County. Right after you have completed the tutorial level will this mode open up.
All earned experience and inventory items, excluding quest-based items, will carry over following each co-op session. While exploring Montana, each player will see and collect their own loot. However, the host player is the only player who will keep their story progress.
To help players in their mission to take down the cult, the host player will still be able to recruit “Guns For Hire” or “Fangs for Hire” keeping in mind that you can have up to two buddies, with one being another player, join you in your squad. Far Cry 5 “Friends For Hire” two-player co-op will allow players to explore Hope County and take down the Project at Eden’s Gate in a surprising and chaotic new fashion expanding the possibility of the game’s open world.
