If you’ve been looking for a reason to get back into the wonderful world of Far Cry 5, then the next piece of downloadable content will most certainly bring that reason. And today Ubisoft have confirmed the date we will get the chance to get Lost on Mars.
Arriving on July 17th 2018, Lost on Mars is the second big piece of DLC for Far Cry 5, as it continues the uncanny adventures of the Far Cry 5 Season Pass, sending players to Mars in order to eradicate an alien threat.
Dropping as part of the Season Pass, available in the Gold Edition or as a standalone DLC purchase, Lost on Mars transports the franchise’s insanity from Hope County to the red planet as we get the chance to see Nick Rye teleported to a hostile planet so he can help his buddy Hurk thwart an alien invasion of Earth.
You can be sure that this will deliver a brand new arsenal of alien weaponry, including the Blaster of Disaster, Hellfire and Morphinator, while also introducing a new transversal tool – Space Jets.
But it’s not just the new story missions that Lost on Mars brings to Far Cry 5 and you will also find that you get access to new Mars-themed assets in Far Cry Arcade. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a map builder, then you’ll be able to utilise and integrate these assets into your existing maps or create new sci-fi-themed maps. You’ll also find that should you download the Lost on Mars DLC, you will also gain access to new weapons – Obliteratorrrr, Taser Phazer Annihilazer, Nerve Reaper, Grape Popper and Hellfire – which you can use to liberate Hope County from the Project at Eden’s Gate.
The final post-launch DLC adventure for Far Cry 5 – that of Dead Living Zombies – will arrive in August. If you already own Far Cry 5 though then you should know one thing… it’s nearly time to squash some bugs!
