Far Cry 5 can be played for free this weekend on almost all platforms where the game is available.
The free period for players to play the game runs from August 5-9. Far Cry 5 will then be free to play on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC via Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store. Ubisoft announced in a press release that the game is completely free to play in both solo and co-op modes.
To ensure you can spend all the time with the game this weekend, it is possible to pre-load the game now on your system of choice. The game is not available everywhere at once. For example, the game will be available first on consoles starting August 5, followed by the Ubisoft Store at 3 PM and Epic Games Store.
With free weekends, it is possible to purchase the game at a discount during the period. This time, Ubisoft is offering players an 85% discount on the game and the Season Pass. Players who decide to purchase the game will carry all their progress to the purchased version.
