Far Cry 5 is undoubtedly one of the biggest games of 2018 and unsurprisingly gamers can’t wait to get their hands on it. However there seems to be some confusion with regards to when Far Cry 5 unlocks and becomes playable. Depending on where you live, you may be able to play Far Cry 5 today or tomorrow.
The time Far Cry 5 unlocks for you will depend on where you are in the world and what platform you’re playing on. If you’re on PC, it’s a little more complicated as the game unlocks slightly earlier on uPlay than it does on Steam. However Steam may decide to unlock Far Cry 5 earlier to coincide with the release on Ubisoft’s Uplay platform.
Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam)
