Rennes, France, March 8, 2018 — Thrustmaster is thrilled to bring its expertise in gaming headsets to the world of Ubisoft®’s Far Cry® for the upcoming launch of Far Cry® 5. The leading hardware gaming brand is releasing two universal headsets, the Y-350CPX and Y-300CPX, allowing co-op teams to immerse themselves Far Cry 5’s fictional Hope County, Montana.

Limited Edition Far Cry 5 Headphones From Two Bestselling Product Lines

To meet the needs of gamers everywhere and particularly those fans of the Far Cry franchise, Thrustmaster is launching two limited-edition Far Cry 5 headsets to mark its arrival on PS4™, Xbox One® and PC. Thanks to an exclusive worldwide partnership with the Far Cry 5 on the latest generation of platforms, players can use these headsets to experience the intensity and action taking place in Hope County, Montana.

Set in America, a first for the franchise, Far Cry 5 offers players total freedom to navigate a serene-looking, yet deeply twisted world as the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana. Players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden's Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance.

With the Y-350CPX 7.1 Powered Far Cry 5 Edition, Thrustmaster offers a high-end headset with unmatched performance sporting the distinctive colours and look of Far Cry 5. The Y-350CPX provides high-resolution audio with perfect reproduction of bass frequencies for optimal rendering of in-game explosions, balanced mids for stable transmission of other players’ voices, and unsaturated treble for crystal-clear sounds of incoming fire.

The Y-350CPX Far Cry 5 Edition will be players’ must-have hardware when used in co-op, a mode that Far Cry 5 is all about: your teammates will be able to count on you with an efficient mic and the fine-tuned 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound.
