The new gameplay trailer for Far Cry 5 introduces us to the faces of the resistance, who are trying to liberate a small town from the clutches of murderous religious zealots. Over the course of the 3-minute demo we meet Grace Armstrong, a tough-talking sniper out of a 1970s blaxploitation film; Nick Rye, a flying ace who rains death from above in his small plane, and Boomer, an angry dog. In the demo, they team up to stop a group of gun-wielding thugs from murdering a couple of unlucky residents.

Far Cry 5 is the follow-up to last year’s prehistoric-themed Far Cry Primal, which launched two years after Far Cry 4. Ubisoft’s forthcoming open-world game is set to include two-player co-op and a map editor.

It is scheduled to be released February 27th on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
