This time around in Far Cry 5, players are able to create their very own character. So what that means is that there won’t be a set protagonist in the game. Also, the game’s campaign is available in co-op as well.

As the game’s protagonist, you will fight close at hand with some of the residents of Hope County. They too would want the fanatical armed cult, The Project at Eden’s Gate gone from their place. Video introductions of your three companions were provided by Ubisoft. The three are Jerome Jeffries, Mary May Fairgrave, and Nick Rye. Watch their video introductions below:

Jerome Jeffries – “The Pastor”

For the past 15 years, he was Hope County’s resident priest. However, he lost his congregation to the founder of the Project at Eden’s Gate, Joseph Seed. Left to die in the woods, Pastor Jeffries survived with his experience during the Gulf War. He promises to return to save and protect the people from the cult.

Mary May Fairgrave

The daughter of the owners of the town’s Saloon, she was born and raised in Hope County. She took over her parent’s Saloon named The Spread Eagle when they died. The cult Eden’s Gate took over the Saloon and was eventually foreclosed. Mary May promises to take back the Spread Eagle as well as Hope County by fighting with the resistance.

Nick Rye – Gun for Hire

Coming from a family of pilots, Nick decided to be a crop duster pilot instead. The cult Eden’s Gate is forcing him to sell them his business, giving him a hard time. So, Nick decides to wage war against the cult before it’s too late!
