“Hours of Darkness” is a bit of a misleading title for this Far Cry 5 expansion, considering your primary objective sầu can be completed in just over a single hour. It is (slightly) more Far Cry, though, & it’s heavily focused on stealth. That’s a good thing for gamers lượt thích me who just love sầu sneaking through outposts.

The setting here is completely different than Far Cry 5’s fictional Hope County, Montana cultist shooting gallery. You play as Hope County resident Wendell Redler, a Vietnam War veteran who is recounting the tale of how he was shot down behind enemy lines and had to lớn survive sầu as he fought his way to lớn an extraction point. It’s basically Rambo: The Video trò chơi, except much better than Rambo: The Video Game.

Hours of Darkness puts you on an entirely new jungle maps to lớn do your Far Cry thing in, filled with new outposts, jungle cats, P.O.W.s to rescue, & enemy soldiers to lớn put down.

As mentioned, you can beeline lớn your extraction point in just over an hour. However, many distractions will appear on your path that can triple your playtime, and plenty are worth doing. Most notably, several members of your company survived the plane crash and have sầu been taken captive. Rescuing them will add them lớn your crew much like the Gun for Hire system in Far Cry 5, and their help is quite beneficial during the climactic standoff once you reach your destination. Ubisoft clearly expects us lớn spend the time doing these sidequests.

After completing your mission on Normal Mode, you’ll unlochồng two more. Survivor Mode is basically the Hard Mode, giving you less health and a smaller inventory. Then there’s kích hoạt Movie Mode, an easier experience with more explosions và a bigger inventory.

One big difference between Hours of Darkness and Far Cry 5 propper is that your buddies aren’t invincible – even after you’ve rescued them they can be permanently killed in combat. So in order to leave sầu no man behind, you’ll need to keep an eye on their health & be ready lớn revive them if they go down. They can also revive you – even more incentive khổng lồ keep them in mind. I like that extra level of team management because it gives you a little more khổng lồ think about, keeping firefights from being completely mindless.

A new perk system also s10kiem.vnificantly changes the gameplay in this expansion. As you make stealth kills you’ll activate perks lượt thích faster movement and automatic enemy tagging, but if you are spotted by the enemy you’ll thua kém the perks. Since these benefits are gained by using stealth, it’s pretty clear how the developers want you khổng lồ play Hours of Darkness. While I vị like this perk system – especially since I like lớn play stealthily anyway – one of the major drawbacks is that when you don’t have any perks activated you feel painfully slow. If you happen khổng lồ over a firefight without any perks, you’re in for a long walk lớn your next encounter, & that’s kind of a bummer.Even in those slow moments, my spirits were lifted by a North Vietnamese woman who shouts propaganda at you from radquả táo scattered about the jungle bases. Destroying all the radquả táo is one of your extra tasks, but I hated to vày so because her threats were so amusing. In menacing broken English she baits you with things like, “We have your friends. No one is coming to save sầu you, American. You die alone in the jungle!” Okay, it looks dark when you write it out lượt thích that, but the delivery makes it funny.As for weapons, Vietnam giới War-era guns have sầu supposedly been added, but I couldn’t tell you the difference between them và the regular Far Cry 5 arsenal.
Hours of Darkness is a clever and fun but brief twist on the Far Cry formula. Its new approach to Guns for Hire AI companions gives you something other than yourself lớn worry about during battles, & its use of perks as a reward for stealth kills encourages my favorite style of play in an interesting way, but can bring your momentum lớn a screeching halt when you slip up. Just like the Far Cry series’ previous jaunts khổng lồ new locations, this trip lớn Vietphái mạnh is a good time.
