Hi, I think I have a great idea for Far Cry 5's story:
General story & first mission description:
You play as (Ubi, I trust you to chose a cool name), a soldier (either IDF/ US Army/ any European army) who was sent with his unit on a mission in an Arabic city somewhere in the Middle East. The city isn't modern at all- it's buildings are mostly something like 7 floors or houses. The city is ruled by a crazy terrorist called (chose a cool name for him too). The character and his whole unit get spotted be terrorists and are put into the city's well guarded prison. The character finds out they are all going to be hanged/brutally executed. In the night before the execution, the character escapes by himself/ a dramatic scene which in his best friend in the unit gets caught and tells the character to keep going on his own (sad music in the background makes you understand his friend isn't going to survive and he will be executed). The character (his tears all over the screen) puts himself together and keeps going until finally he succeeds in escaping. He looks back at the prison and says he's sorry.
The first mission will include:
A video showing the unit receiveing the mission's description, flying to the Middle East and landing. Then a brief tutorial of the game's basics which takes place right after you land, and lets you play as the character as he follows his unit and gets caught. After this short basics tutorial there's a photo montage showing the unit sitting in their cages in prison and follows them in their first few days/weeks in jail (by photos with numbers referring to the days/weeks after they get caught). When the montage ends, you immediately get back to the character's perspective. He hears the guards talking about the execution tomorrow and the character decides to escape. Then there's a stealth & exploration tutorial in which you break out of prison and learn how to crouch, takedown, parkour (i'll explane), distract, lure, etc. that's it for the first mission.
The game's continuation:
The game will follow the character as he survives, joins the rebels, becoming a well known revolutionist.
The game's gameplay:
I chose to set this game in a city in the Middle East for a reason. I think you guys could make Far Cry much better with such a setting because if you'd try to ask for some help from the guys over at Techland, I think they will might be happy to help you develop a parkour system like the one they made in Dying Light. Do you UNDERSTAND what potential would a game like this have?! Look what excitement is going on about Dying Light! *Anyway, I know Far Cry isn't the kind of games which takes place in urban locations, so I thought it can't be in only one small city- the game should also feature nature exploration mixing tropical & deserted locations such as rainforests, deserts, seas, wetlands, drylands, wastelands (wow, so many lands...), etc. I think the setting should be an Arabic land in South Africa so the game would include as much of these locations without inventing an impossible mix of sandy places and rainforests, because it would be exactly like saying there's a desert in the North Pole, right? I think there should also be included a very strong element of temples, tombs and archeological excavations, because deserts are often found in the media world with temples in them (example:Indiana Jones)
Thank you for reeding this whole text p, I know it was very long. I would really appreciate if you guys over at Ubisoft Studios would take this idea into consideration.
Please comment below (I'm also talking to you- Far Cry developers! Let me know what you think 👍
*Sorry if what I wrote is also impossible because I've never been to any country in the whole Africa continent
