The fifth mainline entry in the Far Cry franchise was released nearly five years ago. Far Cry 5 is set in the fictional Hope County and continues the tradition of an open world with engaging first-person shooter gameplay from Ubisoft.
The developer has recently announced a celebration of the game’s anniversary over the next three weeks. This celebration includes a ‘highly requested feature for next-gen consoles’, which may be hinting at a 60 FPS patch and visual update for the game.

Ubisoft has previously updated various games to support the modern hardware found in the Xbox Series S|X and PS5 consoles.
Games like Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey have been updated with these features, and it looks like Far Cry 5 may be next. Since Far Cry is a first-person shooter franchise, the benefits of higher frame rates will be even more apparent than in previous Ubisoft games.
It should be noted that Far Cry 5 was previously playable at 60 FPS on Xbox Series X through FPS boost. However, a potential new update will likely bring a higher resolution along with the improved frame rate.
While nothing is confirmed for now, ray tracing could also be introduced in a new patch. Ubisoft games like Watch Dogs Legion already support this feature on consoles, and Far Cry 5 may be next.
More information will be revealed soon, as stated in the tweet. An improved frame rate and resolution are always a welcome upgrade for older games, and the same can also be said for Far Cry 5.
