You Can Hire Allies
One of the primary features of Far Cry 5 is the ability to recruit allies and call for their assistance whenever you need it. The latest trailer shown off at Ubisoft’s E3 2017 trailer featured three potential allies in the game: Boomer, Grace, and Nick. Boomer is a dog companion who can attack your enemies on sight, and even bring their weapons and items to you. Kind of like Dogmeat from Fallout 4 or DD from Metal Gear Solid V.
Grace is a silent sniper, and players can direct her to strategic locations around the area and have her take position there. She can provide supporting fire whenever you enter enemy territory, and she’ll take down any enemy that you mark. Nick is an ally that provides support from the air, and he’ll rain down bullets and bombs from his airplane when you need it. These characters were referred to as “allies for hire” in the game, which suggests that you might have to spend some resources or make some sort of trade-off to enlist their help.
