Far Cry 5 Has A Secret Ending

SPOILER WARNING: Far Cry 5 isn't out until next week, and if you want to play completely spoiler-free, don't read any further! This article also includes spoilers for Far Cry 4.

Far Cry 5's campaign can be completed in about 25 hours, but you can find a shortcut to the credits a lot earlier than that. Ten minutes in, you can trigger a secret ending that feels more like a gag than an actual conclusion.

The secret ending can be prompted by refusing to handcuff and arrest cult leader Joseph Seed at the Eden's Gate compound. After a few minutes of doing nothing, the sheriff comes toward you and instructs you to leave. Credits roll shortly after. Cuffing him, on the other hand, progresses the story normally and continues the game. You can watch a video of the ending, recorded by PC Gamer, below.

This is becoming a running joke from Ubisoft, since there's a similar gag in Far Cry 4. Early on in that game, if you continue sitting at Min's table for an extended time and ignore a mission prompt to explore the mansion, you are treated to a secret ending despite having barely played the game. It's almost like Ubisoft is making its own tongue-and-cheek commentary on video game design and player choice. Both Far Cry 4 and 5's secret endings require you to outright ignore prompts and instruction that advance the full experience.

Far Cry 5 is out next Tuesday, March 27, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned for our review and additional coverage.
