Play Far Cry 5 for Free on PC This Weekend

Far Cry 5 1

Got a decent PC? Haven’t got anything to do this weekend? Why not indulge yourself in a hefty Far Cry 5 session?

From 2pm BST this Friday 29th May until 5pm BST this Sunday 31st May, Far Cry 5 will be free to play on PC via Uplay. All of the content of the base game will be available, and players can even play in online co-op. Those wishing to participate can start downloading the game right now so they can jump into the free play session as soon as it starts.

If you do take part in Far Cry 5‘s free weekend and find yourself enjoying the game so much that you’d like to buy it, you’ll be able to do so with a 75% discount until 2nd June. You’ll even be able to carry over your progress.

We reviewed the Xbox One version of Far Cry 5 upon its launch back in 2018. Give our words a read if you’d like to find out more about the game. You can also give the Uplay Free Weekend Trailer a watch below.
