Far Cry 5 Next-Gen Update is Looking Like a Good Reason to Return to the Game

First impressions of the new Far Cry 5 next-gen update make it seem like a promising title for gamers with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, whether returning to the game or playing it for the first time.

Far Cry 5 is currently celebrating the fifth anniversary of the game's release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is a landmark title for Ubisoft, gaining the highest-selling debut in its franchise and the second-highest debut for any Ubisoft game overall. It's only natural that the developer would want to celebrate a title this huge, and the fifth-anniversary celebration comes in the form of a patch that gives the game high-resolution settings and native 60 FPS.

A post on Reddit showcases how fantastic the game looks with this new update running at 4K, 60 FPS on the Xbox Series X. Sadly, the footage itself can't be adequately viewed at its highest resolution thanks to Reddit's native video player. Definitely no 4K video available there. But it's still a good showcase of how smoothly the game can run now with this new patch. As long as the player has the right system now, Far Cry 5 can be experienced in all its explosive wonder with no annoying frame rate dips that can make the action feel choppy and sluggish.

This update is a breath of fresh air for the five-year-old FPS game. It makes the game feel like how players imagined it would feel when watching the breathtaking trailers back in late-2017 showcasing the gorgeous rural Montana wilderness. For any gamers that own new-gen consoles out there, this new update is definitely a prime opportunity to either re-experience or play for the first time the game that many consider one of the best Far Cry titles of all time.

The question for many gamers is whether or not Ubisoft will be doing these native 60 FPS patches for other popular titles in the future. One of the top comments on the Reddit post showcasing the Far Cry 5 footage hopes that Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will get a similar upgrade for its 10th anniversary, which is coming up in October of this year. It would be great to see other older titles in Ubisoft's massive catalog get similar patches that make these games feel like they belong in the libraries of next-gen gamers. Games like Far Cry Primal and Watch Dogs could look and feel potentially amazing on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Far Cry 5 is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
