All the action in Far Cry 5 takes place in the fictional county of Hope County, Montana. In this county, a popular man Joseph Seed starts preaching about a vision that he has had. In his vision, he sees a global catastrophe which is going to lead to the breaking up of the society. As such, he decides to establish the Project at Eden’s Gate congregation. In his propaganda, Joseph Seed states that the purpose of the Project at Eden’s Gate is to protect people from the catastrophe that’s about to befall the earth. However, instead of relying on faith to convey his message, Seed uses violence and intimidation to convert people. Those who have been converted live under ‘military’ rule at the Project at Eden’s Gate. Joseph Seed who is the leader calls himself the ‘Father’ while his close followers who play an active role in converting people are known as the ‘Soldiers’.
The real action in the game starts when the news reachesthe county’s sheriff department that the Project at Eden’s Gate is more like a prison for the converted people as they are living in terrible conditions with no rights at all. As such, the county’s sheriff department quickly contacts the United States Marshalls for help. When the officials from the United States Marshalls arrive, a task office is quickly set up consisting of the sheriff, the deputy marshal and his two assistants plus the deputy sheriff. In this game, the player assumes the role of the deputy sheriff.
After setting up the task force, the deputy marshal tells the force that they are going to pay Joseph Seed a visit and the purpose of their visit is to arrest him on charges of kidnapping with the intention to cause harm. Knowing what they are supposed to do, the task force does pay Seed a visit. Seed does not want to be arrested as he states that what he is doing is simply religious. He doesn’t resist arrest so the task force arrests him even though he verbally refused. Soon after boarding the helicopter, the converts attack it leading the helicopter to crash before leaving the gates at the Project of Eden’s Gate.
The sheriff’s deputy (player) manages to escape and from theknowledge,he gathers before escaping, he learns that the converts believe that the global catastrophe has begun. As such, all of them are ready to do what they were advised to do by Seed when the catastrophe comes i.e. purge all non-believers. The player, therefore, has to rush fast to inform the authorities of the purge that’s coming their way and to look for measures to prevent it.
