Far Cry New Dawn is the direct sequel to Far Cry 5 , and continues the story after one of the endings. If you choose to continue pursuing Joseph Seed — also known as The Prophet — the world is turned upside down and there’s a new threat. However, pockets of survivors still cling to existence around the country, but your journey again leads you to Hope County, Montana. This time around, you’re part of a group trying to rebuild the country with the help of an army engineer.
In our review , we said, “Despite its positive attributes, Far Cry New Dawn feels more like the endgame to Far Cry 5. It’s almost like an epilogue that should’ve been included with the base game, maybe as part of the season pass. In order to properly conclude the story started in Far Cry 5, you have to play Far Cry New Dawn. It’s definitely not a standalone experience, because you have to know the history of characters.”
