Far Cry 5 Trailer and Release Date Announced

UBISOFT ANNOUNCES FAR CRY 5  IS COMING TO AMERICA’S HEARTLAND ON FEBRUARY 27, 2018

Today, Ubisoft announced that gamers will experience the chaos, unpredictability and ferociousness of the Far Cry franchise with Far Cry 5 on PlayStation 4, the Xbox One family of devices, including Project Scorpio, and Windows PC. Set in America for the first time, in Montana, players will have total freedom to navigate this serene-looking yet deeply twisted world solo or entirely in two-player co-op as they fight for survival and freedom, when the game releases on February 27, 2018. Development for Far Cry 5 is being led by Ubisoft Montreal.

As the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana, players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden’s Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Caught off guard and drawn into a power struggle, players must disrupt the carefully laid plans of the Project at Eden’s Gate and fan the fires of resistance to help liberate the Hope County community and themselves.

Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. The fight against the cult will take players to unique locations throughout Hope County that provide different gameplay experiences. During their journey, players can fly planes to engage cult forces in aerial dogfights across Big Sky Country. While tracking down cult members and gathering resources for survival across farmland, forests, mountains and rivers, players can get behind the wheel of iconic American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs and boats. Vehicles also provide refuge when under attack by animals or as a way to quickly escape when things don’t go as planned.

To take down the cult, players will need to utilize any and all weapons at their disposal, including ranged weapons such as guns and grenades and melee weapons like a sledgehammer or baseball bat. Additionally, players can recruit Guns for Hire from a large cast of characters, or even Fangs for Hire, specialized animals like bears and cougars to complement players’ playstyles whether they’re going in stealthily or forcefully. How players approach each situation and the chaos they create in Far Cry 5 is up to them. Far Cry 5 will also see the return of the map editor, giving players the opportunity to create and play an infinite amount of new playgrounds. The map editor will include new features that add a new dimension to the content created by fans, with more details coming soon.

Spider-Man star Tom Holland cast as young Nathan Drake in Uncharted movie

Deadline is reporting that Tom Holland, star of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the current big screen Spider-Man, has been cast to play Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie that’s currently in development.

Holland will play a young Nathan Drake in the new script, which is being written as a prequel. The movie takes inspiration from one of the early levels of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception that featured a young Nathan Drake in his first encounter with Victor Sullivan, who would later become his mentor.

Sony Pictures will hire a new script writer to pen the story. Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy is still attached to direct. This new direction for the movie was decided on after Sony Pictures boss Tom Rothman watched the most recent cut of the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, according to the site.

Sony Pictures hopes to start another franchise around Tom Holland’s charisma, following the positive buzz about his portrayal of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War.

Tom Hardy will star in Sony’s stand-alone Venom movie

Joins club of actors in both DC and Marvel movies

Tom Hardy is dropping the mask he wore in The Dark Knight Rises for a starring role as the titular villain in Sony Pictures’ Venom, Sony Pictures confirmed today.

Venom is the first of many Marvel-based projects that Sony plans to release over the coming years. The studio’s next project, Spider-Man: Homecoming, will be released as a joint project between Marvel Studios and Sony. Sony is also developing a Silver Sable/Black Cat film, but there’s no word on when that may come to fruition.

 

Venom is one of the more popular villains in the Spider-Man universe and made his first big screen, live-action debut in Spider-Man 3 back in 2007. That version of the villain was played by Topher Grace, but unfortunately for Sony, Spider-Man 3 wasn’t well received by critics. Despite the negative attention the movie received, it still managed to gross more than $330 million worldwide upon its release.

The move from DC to Marvel also grants Hardy acceptance into an exclusive club held by some of the biggest actors working today. Others, including Halle Berry (Catwoman, X-Men), Ben Affleck (Daredevil, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Chris Evans (The Losers, Captain America), James Marsden (Superman Returns, X-Men) and Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern, Deadpool) have all been in DC and Marvel films at some point in their career to varying degrees of success.

Venom is scheduled to be released on Oct. 5, 2018. It will be directed by Ruben Fleischer, best known for his work on Zombieland.
