Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies DLC Release Date And Trailer

Dead Living Zombies arrives very soon.

9 Comments

Far Cry 5's next expansion, Dead Living Zombies, will launch on August 28, Ubisoft has announced. The expansion sees players meet up with "D-tier" film director Guy Marvel who has a number of ideas for an "epic zombie saga." You will play seven different "film scenarios," which are maps made using Far Cry 5's Arcade Editor tools.

As you'd imagine, you will be fighting against "hordes of undead" in all manner of different environments. Once you beat each map, you'll unlock a Score Attack mode. If you get a 3-star rating you'll get weapons and gear that you can use in the story mode.

The Dead Living Zombies expansion costs $7 on its own, while it's also included with Far Cry 5's $30 DLC Pass. You don't have to pay to get new stuff, however, as Ubisoft is adding more scripting tools and destructible objects, as well as "more new assets," to the free Far Cry 5 map-editor in the next title update.

Dead Living Zombies is the third and final Far Cry 5 expansion, following the previously released Hours of Darkness and Lost on Mars. You can watch a trailer for Dead Living Zombies in the embed above; there is only a very brief gameplay segment, right at the end.

I have not completed the main campaign yet. Does anyone find the music in FC5 a bit annoying?

So it's just a bunch of maps made with the arcade tool? Wow. This is the reason I'm no longer buying season passes until I see all the content.

Sounded so good on paper, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

@mrdinghat: Same, this new Zombies DLC (for me) looks the best of the bunch, but I think they should have expanded on the main games story than go off on a tangent with this silliness.

To be fair though, I like blasting zombies and monsters to shit, so might have a go with this one. :)

I enjoyed the main game - probably my GotY, but for some reason I have no desire to buy these DLCs. With the Martian one and now this, they seem to have little in common with FC5. Why is that? There seems to be a plethora of things they could do to expand it. The Haunted House and Disco Inferno portions could have been expanded upon - as an example.
