Far Cry 5 Well Done Challenge

Far Cry 5 Well Done Challenge

Far Cry 5 players can now tuck into the open-world sequel's first live event, developer Ubisoft has announced (via XBA). While specific sales numbers haven't been confirmed, Ubisoft claims over $310 million was spent on the game in its first week, with half of the sales coming from digital distribution platforms like PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace.

Far Cry 5's menus have been promoting the upcoming release of Live Events, and the first of these is finally available. It trails only behind Tom Clancy's The Division, with $310 million Dollars in consumer spending over its first week.

"Far Cry 5, like the real Montana, is a vast and gorgeous playground filled with colorful stories for players to enjoy and share", Laurent Detoc, President of Ubisoft, Americas. Check out the infographic below to several more.

Fed. agents arrest designer of water slide that killed Kan. boy
He is facing charges of second-degree murder , aggravated battery, and aggravated endangering of a child. Marshals Service said Schooley was being held in Dallas pending arraignment and removal to Kansas.

Millions of Customer Records Leaked at Panera Bread
These records include email addresses, phone numbers, loyalty account numbers and home addresses. That eventually changed as the URLs of Panera now lead to a page that says, "access denied".

'Anti-apartheid' church to hold memorial service for Winnie Mandela
I recall, for instance, when some leaders of the UDF disowned her. "Very sorry to hear about the death of comrade Winnie Mandela". Ramaphosa, South Africa's new president, said a state funeral and an official memorial service will be held to honour her.

Along with sales, Ubisoft touted statistics on the game's online presence, specifically pointing to Twitch and YouTube. You'll also earn some Silver Bars as the Far Cry 5 community makes progress on the event; at 150,000 total kills, participants will receive a Flamebearer outfit to wear-and this threshold was passed in less than a day. An otherwise mundane job turns deadly after a doomsday cult attempts to take over the small, fictional county.

It might seem odd that Ubisoft chose setting animals on fire for a live event but it certainly speaks to the tone of Far Cry 5.

"I'm proud that the culmination of years of passionate work from the team is paying off, and that FC5's experience resonates with so many people", said Dan Hay, Executive Producer on Far Cry.
