After getting lost in the wilderness of Far Cry 5‘s Montana, things only go downhill as the game’s second DLC gets us lost on an entirely different planet.
Far Cry 5‘s Lost On Mars DLC takes players to the distinctly-not-deserted surface of Mars, as returning characters Nick Rye and Hurk attempt to stop an invasion of martian spiders. Players will combat these alien arachnids with a host of new weapons, like the Blaster of Disaster and the Morphinator, along with the new Space Jets traversal tool. Back on earth, those that download Lost On Mars will be granted access to five new space weapons for use on the main game’s unsuspecting cult.
A teaser trailer of the upcoming expansion shows fans how Nick Rye gets himself into this mess.
Lost On Mars is set to launch July 17th, coming as part of the game’s season pass, or available as a stand-alone purchase for $9.99. Prior to the launch of the new adventure, all players can now enjoy new sci-fi-themed assets in the Far Cry Arcade’s map editor for free, with more assets being added down the line.
Far Cry 5‘s previous expansion, Hours of Darkness, took players to the jungles of the Vietnam War. Here they had to use the survival skills they had honed in the game’s main campaign to rescue squadmates from the Viet Cong and get everyone out alive. A jump from the Vietnam War to an alien invasion seems pretty crazy, and this trend continues with the game’s third expansion, Dead Living Zombies. As the name suggests, players will be thrown into a zombie apocalypse, from which fighting the Project at Eden’s Gate may even seem preferable.
