Ubisoft's Far Cry 5 launch is only a few weeks away. We are learning more about the game and more companies are jumping aboard the publicity bandwagon as release gets nearer. Over recent weeks we have learned about the recommended PC specs for the game on PC, Ubisoft detailed the Season Pass a month ago, and just ahead of the weekend Corsair announced Far Cry 5 RGB lighting profiles and bundles with select hardware costing US$150+.
Over the weekend PCGamer published some more news nuggets which will be of interest to those eagerly anticipating Far Cry 5's arrival, especially on PC. First of all it shared screenshots of the graphics options menus on PC, secondly it shared an hour long video showing someone playing through a segment of the single player campaign.
It is noted that any hands-on time was done with a preview build of the game so things could change. Nevertheless all the expected game graphics options are there on PC. Gamers can tweak settings such as graphics quality, texture filtering, shadows, and many more - to get the best balance between performance and on-screen eye candy for their system.
Particularly welcome features of the graphics options are; a VRAM meter, an FOV scaler, a colour-blind mode, and the ability to shunt UI elements in the game to a second monitor. PC users will also benefit from a tailored in-game UI, which looks to be adapted for mouse/keyboard fast inventory management.
For footage of the new Far Cry game, PCGamer has published an exclusive full hour of single player shenanigans. In the segment provided you can see the first look at a mountainous region of the game, in the northern third of the map, plus some co-op play.
I've embedded the shorter 30 minute co-op footage segment, available via YouTube, above.
