Far Cry 5, the first-person shooter title by Ubisoft released last March 26, 2018, turns five years old later this month. To mark the occasion, Ubisoft has planned celebrations to be held “over the next three weeks,” with an announcement planned for a “highly requested feature” for next-gen consoles.
The official Far Cry Twitter account teased the feature in a recent announcement tweet.
🎉 Let's celebrate the 5th anniversary of #FarCry5! 🎉
Over the next three weeks, celebrate the 5th Anniversary with us. Stay tuned for what's to come, including a highly requested feature for next-gen consoles. 👀#FarCry5Anniversary pic.twitter.com/l6LFL0nfKb

Some of the comments on this tweet were quick to speculate what the feature may be, with many mentioning a potential 60 FPS update for Far Cry 5. As the game would be running on capable hardware in the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, this isn’t an unreasonable assumption to make.
Far Cry 5 is a pretty solid entry in the Far Cry series, with the game currently sporting a score of 81, 82, and 78 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC platforms respectively. While we don’t have a review on Far Cry 5, we do have one for the latest Far Cry entry, Far Cry 6. Here’s a snippet:
While Far Cry 6 is not the huge revamp many have been asking for, it is a great time nonetheless. The extensive weapon customization, and new additions like the Supremo weapons and Amigos add even more flexibility to the tried and true formula. The story starts off excellent, and remains solid throughout, although it does start to overstay its welcome towards the latter half of the game. There’s a huge cast of characters, highlighted by yet another iconic Far Cry villain in Anton Castillo. It’s not going to win over any Far Cry naysayers, but fans of the series should thoroughly enjoy what Ubisoft have done here. It is, in my opinion, the best Far Cry title since 2012’s Far Cry 3.
There isn’t a concrete timeline for the Far Cry 5 celebrations just yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
