The first expansion for Far Cry 5 releases in two weeks, and it takes players from the rocky mountains and forests of Montana to the thick, unforgiving jungles of Vietnam. Hours of Darkness is set during the Vietnam War, in which you take the role of Wendell "Red" Redler, a character you may have come across with your time spent in the main story of Far Cry 5. The expansion can be played in either solo or co-op and includes new gear and abilities.
The expansion will also give you two new ways to play through its story once you've completed it: one that provides you with limited ammo and another that equips you with a generous amount of ammunition. Probably the coolest part of the whole thing is that all Far Cry 5 players will get Hours of Darkness's assets to use for free in Far Cry Arcade. Yes, this is our headlining story for today's GameSpot Daily, but be sure to stay tuned for more stories from the world of video games.
Ubisoft has revealed its E3 lineup... well, at least the games we already knew about. It confirmed that Beyond Good and Evil 2 would be back for its second showing, in addition to games like The Division 2, Skull & Bones, and Starlink: Battle for Atlas. However, Ubisoft does have some surprises in store for its E3 briefing, one of which may be Ubisoft's unannounced AAA game that's set to release before March 31, 2019. We discuss everything we know in the video above.
In other news, Battlefield V was recently revealed, and now Xbox One players can get their WWII fix with an older game in the franchise. Battlefield 1943 is now available on Microsoft's console as part of the backwards-compatibility program. It's a much smaller, almost bite-sized version of a full Battlefield game; it has four maps, three classes, and one gun per category for each faction. If you already own it or are an EA Access member, you can play it now. Otherwise, you can pick it up from the Xbox Store for $10 US.
Speaking of first-person shooters, we recently talked to Blizzard about the future of Overwatch, the possibility of a sequel, and whether it's considering a Nintendo Switch port. We reveal its answers in this episode of GameSpot Daily.
