Play Far Cry 5 in 60 FPS For Free Through March 27

Far Cry 5 is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a free weekend running now through March 27 on Xbox (Xbox Live Gold subscription required) and PlayStation (no need for any PSN+ subscription to access it) platforms, as well as PC through Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store. Those on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 will be able to experience the 60 FPS patch released last week, making Far Cry 5 a smoother experience than ever before.

Explore Hope County and liberate it from doomsday cult The Project at Eden's Gate, whose leader Joseph Seed has imprisoned and isolated the community in the name of apocalyptic salvation. You can play Far Cry 5 solo or in co-op with a friend, and recruit in-game help with its Guns for Hire system. However you choose to play, be ready to deal with the consequences, as Far Cry 5 tracks the destruction you wreak on Hope County and adjusts the cult's response accordingly - the bigger the threat you become, the harder Joseph Seed and the Seed family leaders will try to bring you down.
