At the time, it was a pretty underwhelming announcement - a logo and the promise of more to come. A focus group participant who claims to have seen Ubisoft's direction for the game over a two-hour period.
The four trailers each show off a different facet of the game's environment, ranging from a natural river, to an out-of-the-way church, to a vast mountain range. And thus, we are welcomed to the fictional Hope County.
Also remember the teaser image Ubisoft posted up, the one with the Far Cry 5 logo above a blue sky? And while you'd be forgiven for missing any action in the first video, look closer and there's a dead body, face down, floating down stream. Hmm.
If you've played any of the previous games then you'll know that things are never tranquil where a Far Cry title is concerned and that definitely looks like it's going to be the case in Hope County.
They showed us some basic promotional videos featuring a heavily - HEAVILY - religious angle to the evil.
While the trailer leaves us with little information regarding the game's plot, it does match up with a recent leak on Reddit where a poster, hiding under a throwaway account, divulged some information regarding the game's plot.
"The overall feeling I got from the animatic videos we saw is that they're really playing up a sense of dread". Outside of that, we know very litter other than rumors of a western setting.
At the end of the teaser trailer, there is a message advertising the full game reveal this Friday on May 26th.
