Released by Ubisoft on 27th March of this year, Far Cry 5 was met with good reviews by the players. It was the fifth instalment of the award winning series that is Far Cry. To bundle up on their success and give the players something more, a new DLC, titled Lost on Mars, was announced by Ubisoft in a press conference in London, UK.
Lost on Mars continues the uncanny adventures in the Far Cry 5 Season Pass as players travel to Mars to eradicate an alien threat. It transports the franchise’s insanity from Hope County to the red planet as Nick Rye is teleported to a hostile planet to help his buddy Hurk thwart an alien invasion of Earth. This adventure gives players a new arsenal of alien weaponry, including the Blaster of Disaster, Hellfire and Morphinator, while also introducing a new transversal tool with Space Jets. Humankind’s future is in the hands of the game’s most notorious guns-for-hire. Time to squash some bugs!
In addition, all Far Cry 5 players will have access to new Mars-themed assets in Far Cry Arcade, which is available now. Map builders will be able to integrate these assets into their existing maps or create new sci-fi-themed maps. Future content will also include thematic assets that will be added to Far Cry Arcade for free. Those who download the Lost on Mars DLC will also gain access to new weapons – Obliteratorrrr, Taser Phazer Annihilazer, Nerve Reaper, Grape Popper and Hellfire – to use as they liberate Hope County from the Project at Eden’s Gate.
Being the second last DLC to the series, it is set to come out and be available for the players on July 17th. Lost on Mars can be purchased as a stand-alone DLC, as part of the season pass or the Gold Edition. Its sequel, called Dead Living Zombies is set for an August release.
