Far Cry 5 short film, Eden’s Gate, arrives on March 5

Following last year's Ghost Recon: Wildlands’ short film, War Within the Cartel, Ubisoft has announced a short film for Far Cry 5.

Tilted, Eden’s Gate, the short film follows a trio of vloggers as they head to Montana to investigate reports about the Eden’s Gate cult. Of course, things don’t go as planned as the  cult gets wind of the group and come to face to face with its leader.

“At Ubisoft, we always strive to build worlds and narratives that actively engage our consumers both in and outside of our core gaming experiences,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of marketing and consumer experience, Ubisoft. “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.”

The short film stars actor Greg Byrk as cult leader Joseph Seed, aka The Father, who also voices and portrays the character in the game. The film will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on March 5. Check out the trailer above.
