Play Far Cry 5 for Free from August 5-9

Looking for a mix of beautiful landscapes and blistering action this weekend? Now is a perfect time to revisit the vast bucolic countryside of Hope County, Montana and rise up against the fanatical doomsday cult that rules over it in Far Cry 5, which you can play for free from August 5 to August 9 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC (via the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store).

During the free weekend, you can play the full game solo or with a friend in co-op mode. And if you don’t already own it, you can pre-load Far Cry 5 right now. The free weekend starts August 5 at 12:01 AM PT on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One, 6 AM PT on PC via the Ubisoft Store, and 10 AM PT on Stadia and PC via Epic Games Store.

If you want to keep hanging out with Boomer the dog, finish the fight against The Father, Joseph Seed and his cult followers, and keep your progression in the game after August 9, you can get discounts of up to 85% off Far Cry 5’s Standard Edition, Gold Edition, and Season Pass on select platforms. Far Cry 5 is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC (via the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store).
