Far Cry 5 Getting Horror-Inspired Season Pass

Get ready to fight zombies and aliens in Far Cry 5's DLC.

By L.B. Lubomski

Do you like horror content in your action-oriented, shooter video games? How about zombies in a game for no reason other than to include zombies? If not, you're going to hate the upcoming DLC for Far Cry 5. Coming ahead of the game's release on March 27th, Ubisoft has detailed what purchasers of the game's season pass can expect:

"Far Cry 5 will take you to the Montanan wilderness of Hope County, where The Project at Eden's Gate cult is preparing for the end of the world, reaping souls through questionable and often violent means. But your Far Cry 5 journey doesn't end there (nor does it stay on the same planet, for that matter). The Far Cry 5 Season Pass includes three new adventures that transport you to three distinct locations, starting with Vietnam, where you battle the Việt Cộng in Hours of Darkness. That's followed by Dead Living Zombies, which as its title suggests, pits you against zombie hordes in a variety of B-movie scenarios. Finally, in Lost on Mars, you'll leave Earth behind to battle arachnids on the Martian surface."

Far Cry 5 Season Pass holders will also get first access to the remastered version of Far Cry 3 ahead of its stand-alone release later this year. Based on this information, are you ready to take on zombies and alien bugs or will you be avoiding this content and/or game like the zombie plague? I am personally willing to give it a try. As we have seen from Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare, not all horror content tacked on to non-horror games are destined to fail. However, the oversaturation of the market with zombie modes in particular has made most gamers, myself included, very skeptical. We'll be sure to let you know when a trailer drops or more details become available.
