With its full reveal coming this Friday, Ubisoft has unveiled its first piece of artwork for Far Cry 5, and it’s safe to say it’s a provocative one.
The first released artwork for the fifth iteration in the open world series (seen below) is a bizarre one; depicting a bearded man in shades striking a messiah pose at the centre of a table surrounded by heavily armed fellow bearded men, one woman and a wolf in a scene reminiscent of Leonardo Da Vinci’s portrait – The Last Supper.
In front of the self-proclaimed messiah lies a US flag which features a bunch of unique crosses rather than stars while a man sits tied upright in front of the table with the word “sinner” carved into his back, a foot or so away from a collection of guns and rockets.
The image teaches us that Far Cry 5 will feature a modern era with a story likely centred on a large group of religious militia. The move is certainly a bold one by the publisher that would see the long-running series depart the remote locations of Far Cry 3 and 4.
Far Cry 5‘s first piece of artwork follows the release of 4 short teaser trailers a couple days ago, each as bizarre as the image released today.
Ubisoft will fully reveal Far Cry 5 this coming Friday.
