The latest trailer from Ubisoft celebrating the upcoming release of Far Cry 5 wants you to get baptized with the "Father's" blessing. The cult surrounding Eden's Gate is led by none other than Joseph Seed and he can be seen in the live-action video above welcoming new followers into the fold and offering a false sense of peace. One hopeful member didn't quite get the send off she was hoping for....
With his "God given" gifts, Joseph Seed - much like any cult leader - is an egotistical icon with charm used to allure those who have 'lost their way'. In the video above, hopefuls can see Seed in all of his charismatic glory as he promises the world, as long as you don't mind getting your hands dirty. With his loyal cult following at his beck and call, it will be up to the player and their friends to take out Eden's Gate blind follower by blind follower until the head of the snake himself can be cut down.
