Ubisoft reveals more details on Far Cry 5‘s online co-op mode: Friends For Hire. The online game feature will allow players to team up with one of their friends to free Hope County from the Project at Eden’s Gate cult.
This game feature will be available at launch.
Players can access this feature immediately following the in-game tutorial, Far Cry 5 will be playable via online co-op. 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‘s Friends For Hire two-player co-op will allow players to explore Hope County and take down the Project at Eden’s Gate.
Far Cry 5 will be available next on February 27, 2018 on the PlayStation 4 Pro, PlayStation 4, the Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox One S, and Windows PC platforms.
