Thou Shall Not not Cry
We didn’t not cry at the end of the movie Titanic, and we won’t not cry when we meet Far Cry 5’s Nick Rye. “He’s one of our fondest, coolest, and sweetest characters,” says narrative director Jean-Sébastien Decant. “We managed to pull off something with him that I didn’t think we could pull off in Far Cry. He’s a family man, he has a wife, she’s expecting, and in the game, through all these bullets and fights and craziness, there is the story of this couple. I think with that we went to a space that was unexpected in a Far Cry game.” Desperate times call for desperate measures, and when notorious cult Eden’s Gate threaten Nick’s way of life, he joins Hope County’s armed Resistance. This subplot of a fiercely protective father fighting to protect his loved ones at any cost will surely make us all not not cry a bunch of times.
