Ubisoft Celebrates Far Cry 5’s Fifth Anniversary With Next-Gen Update For Consoles, Free Trial Weekend Launches On March 23 For All Platforms

Today, Far Cry 5 is getting a 60 FPS patch on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 as part of its fifth anniversary celebrations. Take down Joseph Seed and his Heralds at twice the framerate as you explore the different regions in Hope County and liberate its citizens. The 60 FPS patch applies to all of Far Cry 5’s game modes, as well as its three DLCs; Hours of Darkness, Lost on Mars, and Dead Living Zombies, making now the perfect time to dive into the backstories of Wendell Redler, Nick Rye, and Guy Marvel, respectively.

In addition to a smoother visual experience, Xbox Series X|S players will receive enhanced resolution for Far Cry 5. Xbox Series X will be able to run the game with a 3840×2160 and 4K resolution, while Xbox Series S will run it at a 1920×1080. PS5 players will still be able to take out the Seed family at 2880×1620 resolution.
