A Complete Guide to Far Cry 5’s Preorder Bonuses

Breaking down the game’s special editions and bonuses.

Far Cry 5 is Ubisoft’s latest and boldest open-world shooter, set to launch on March 27, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game takes place in a rural Montana town that’s besieged by a militaristic doomsday cult called Eden’s Gate. Your job, as always, is to take back the land, one outpost at a time.

If you’re ready to preorder Far Cry 5, you probably want to know about the various editions and preorder bonuses that are available. In true Ubisoft fashion there are (and we’re rounding here) approximately 5,000 editions and buying options – but as usual once you take a moment to dig into them it isn’t as confusing as it first seems. We have all the information you need below, so read on.
