Far Cry 5 is up for pre-order, and you can pre-load it nine months ahead of time on Xbox One

Far Cry 5 was officially revealed today, and it's available for pre-order if you're ready to throw money at it early.


If you pre-order the digital version through the Xbox Store, you can even pre-load it right away. That's a bit early, so hopefully you won't forget about it by the time Far Cry 5 releases in February next year.

Along with the Xbox One digital pre-order, Ubisoft has also announced two versions of the game available through the Ubisoft Store.

These are the Deluxe and Gold Editions of the game. The latter includes the Season Pass, the contents of which will be revealed at a later time.

Of course, each of the editions below are also available for pre-order on the PlayStation Store.

Here's what's on offer.

Pre-order Bonus: Doomsday Prepper Pack - includes the prepper outfit, gun and vehicle skins, plus additional consumables.

Far Cry 5: Deluxe Edition - $69.99: Includes immediate access to additional weapons, explosives, vehicles, and skins:

  • The Big Game Hunter Pack
  • The Ace Pilot Pack
  • The Explosive Pack
  • The Chaos Pack
  • AR-C Assault Rifle & .44 Magnum Handgun with unique skins

Far Cry 5: Gold Edition - $89.99: Includes all Deluxe Edition add-on content, plus the Season Pass.

In Far Cry 5, players take on the roll of a local deputy charged with arresting Joseph, the violent, charismatic leader of the doomsday cult, Eden's Gate.

Players will meet up with various NPCs along the way who have their own motives for wanting to destroy the nefarious cult.

You can pick up the game come February 27.
