Fans of Ubisoft's Far Cry series just might be interested in this one. The company announced a new statue, The Father's Calling, today which is an exclusive Far Cry 5 figurine inspired by the leader of the Project at Eden's Gate, Joseph Seed. You can pick up your slice of stereotypical americana on pre-order on the Ubisoft Store now. At least for those in the UK.
This unique collector's item will be released on March 22nd 2018 as a standalone statue.
In order to remain faithful to the charismatic leader of the game, Ubicollectibles has teamed up with Ubisoft Montreal studio to create this finely-detailed 32cm PVC figurine. They have chosen to represent The Father in his iconic pose; calling to his believers to defend his holy project. The Father's Calling figurine includes a removable gun in Joseph's hand and a removable scepter on the base.
Set in America, a first for the franchise, Far Cry 5 offers players total freedom to navigate a serene-looking yet deeply twisted world as the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana. Players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden's Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. Yes, it's a pretty tone-deaf plotline to debut in 2018, but, that hasn't stopped Ubisoft before. We all remember that time Bolivia tried to sue them over Ghost Recon: Wildlands after all.
Far Cry 5 will be available March 27th, 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
