Last week we had the opportunity to get hands-on with Far Cry 5 - one of our most anticipated games of 2018 - and over the next few days and weeks will have a few surprises to share on that front. One of those surprises we can share now, the announcement of Far Cry 5 Inside Eden’s Gate - an original short film we had the opportunity to screen at the Far Cry 5 event.
Ubisoft today announced Inside Iden's Gate that's based on and inspired by this month's release of Far Cry 5. The teaser trailer is above and the full short will premiere exclusively on Prime Video starting March 5, via Prime Video Direct (formerly Amazon Video Direct).
Set in the fictional Hope County, Montana, Inside Eden’s Gate will delve deeper into the Project at Eden’s Gate and its ruthless leader, Joseph Seed. The short film is produced in partnership with Asylum, an award-winning division of prolific feature film studio Legendary Entertainment.
In Inside Eden’s Gate, rumors of a fanatical cult called The Project at Eden’s Gate lure three vloggers to the remote Hope County, Montana. As the vloggers follow the leads of missing locals and other strange events, they come face-to-face with Joseph Seed, played by the same actor as the in-game version of the cult leader, and the rest of the fanatical doomsday cult. Produced by Asylum Entertainment, Inside Eden’s Gate features Greg Bryk (A History of Violence) and Kyle Gallner (American Sniper).
Tony Key, Ubisoft senior vice president of marketing and consumer experience:
“At Ubisoft, we always strive to build worlds and narratives that actively engage our consumers both in and outside of our core gaming experiences.Our partnership with Asylum Entertainment provided a unique opportunity for the team to work with top-tier acting talent in Greg Bryk that bridges the consumers’ experience from the short film to the game.”
Set in America, a first for the franchise, Far Cry 5 offers players total freedom to navigate a serene-looking yet deeply twisted world as the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana. Players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden's Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance.
Below are screenshots from Inside Eden's Gate featuring Greg Bryk as "The Father" (Joseph Seed) - who also plays the key antagonist in the game itself and who was in character at last week's Far Cry 5 event, and star Kyle Gallner.
