Far Cry is the gold standard for FPS games and it now becomes of the few gaming franchises to have a short film in its arsenal. Amazon Prime will stream a short film titled Far Cry 5: Inside Eden’s Gate on Monday, March 5, 2018. The teaser for the short film is intense and intriguing. The short film follows three vloggers who stumble on a cult and decide to learn more about it, obviously opening a world of danger and death for them. The game launches later this month, on March 27 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
The teaser shows the trio combat violence with anything that’s available, including guns, baseball bats and whatnots. Earlier, Ubisoft launched a trailer for the latest launch in their Ghost Recon series, Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Assassin’s Creed: Origins also got a live-action trailer launch – the game franchise also spawned a film.
Game franchises are going into the live action zone with streaming platforms. Traditionally, films based on games don’t work – apart from the blockbuster Lara Croft. So, with content producers using streaming sensibilities instead of big film ones, we wonder if they will crack the success code.
