Far Cry 5's bizarre season pass takes on zombies, aliens and the Viet Cong

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

There's a new trailer up too.

Ubisoft has announced the details of the Far Cry 5 season pass including three DLC packs.

The first pack to arrive, Hours of Darkness, will send the player back in time to the Vietnam war, having you fight against the Viet Cong. The second, Dead Living Zombies, is your standard zombie-fest, inspired by B-movie style action horror. Finally, Lost on Mars is set on, you guessed it, Mars, and has you fending off alien arachnid terrors.

We’re not quite sure how the Vietnam war’s very real National Liberation Front fit in as enemies next to nameless sci-fi aliens and undead creatures but well, this is the series that played Skrillex while you burnt fields of marijuana so we can’t expect too much by way of class.

As an added bonus, owners of the season pass will also get a copy of Far Cry 3 Classic Edition, the game with excellent villain Vaas and said scene about burning fields of green.

Far Cry 3 will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in summer, but Far Cry 5 season pass holders will get access a month early.

Far Cry 5 is not just around the corner. Two months around the corner that is. Ubisoft’ american religious cult shooter arrives March 27.
