Far Cry 5 Plot Overview:
A preacher by the name of Joseph Seed has a reputation in the fictional town of Hope County, Montana. Seed believes that he is chosen to protect the people in the area from what is known as the “inevitable collapse”. So, he establishes a group known as Eden’s Gate. You can basically look at Eden’s Gate as a radical, aggressive doomsday cult and Joseph Seed as its violent leader. Anyway, Seed sweeps the County with his followers to forcibly convert the residents of Hope County into joining his cult. He uses violence and intimidation to keep the residents at bay.
The player is thrown into the equation when several lawmen are reported deceased. As a sheriffs-deputy it is your initial goal to arrest Seed. That is, before your mission goes to hell and you find yourself trapped just as many of the remaining residents of Hope County. Just after the player arrives, they find themselves wrapped up in a rag-tag group of remaining Hope County residents who put together a resistance against Eden’s Gate.
