Hope County’s Wendell “Red” Redler was in the s— in Vietnam, and you can relive some of his adventures in the DLC Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness on June 5 across all platforms.
The DLC is free for season pass and gold edition owners ($11.99 as standalone), and is playable both solo and co-op. After you rescue some squad mates and kill some enemy soldiers, two new modes open up – Survivor mode (which challenges you to complete the DLC a second time with a limited loadout) and Action Movie mode (which has a more generous loadout).
Even if you don’t get the DLC, all Far Cry 5 players can use Vietnam-themed assets in their game (including the Vietnam map builders update) on May 24.
Finally, Ubisoft has roughly dated Far Cry 5’s two other DLC installments – Lost on Mars and Dead Living Zombies – for July and August, respectively. Like Hours of Darkness, these additions will also include new assets.
