“Lost on Mars,” Far Cry 5’s second post-launch DLC adventure, is coming on July 17, and it’s taking players far beyond Hope County and all the way to Mars, where they’ll battle alien arachnids as family-man-turned-fighter-pilot Nick Rye. Hurk’s along for the ride, too, and together they’ll fight to restore humanity’s last line of defense: an AI named ANNE.
When Nick Rye agrees to help Hurk out of a jam, he never expects it will lead him outside of Hope County … and all the way to Mars! Teleported to a hostile planet with only Hurk by his side, Nick must master powerful technology to battle alien arachnids and restore power to ANNE – a futuristic AI who represents humanity’s last line of defense against eight-legged invaders with Earth in their sights.
Introducing a new Martian open world to explore, “Lost on Mars” gives players access to plenty of sci-fi survival gear, including jetpacks and alien weaponry such as the single-shot Blaster of Disaster, the Hellfire (which fires 15 bouncing laser balls), and the Morphinator, a fearsome weapon that turns your enemies into explosive, arachnid-attracting cows. And in addition to the new adventure, Martian assets are now available free to all Far Cry 5 players for creating maps in Far Cry Arcade.
“Lost on Mars” is available either as a standalone purchase or as part of the Season Pass (which also includes the already-released “Hours of Darkness,” as well as “Dead Living Zombies”, which launches in August) on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can order Far Cry 5 at Amazon.com.
