Far Cry 5 will be set in Hope County, where players take control of a Junior Deputy, along with his two fellow officers, in an attempt to stop a cult group, The Project at Eden's Gate.
Here's the announcement trailer...

More details on the game from Executive Producer, Dan Hay..
and here's the teaser videos that were released before the announcement itself to set the mood of the game..
I haven't played any of the Far Cry games, though they are all sitting on my backlog but from what I know they have always been filled with memorable villains and just a crazy, fun-filled sandbox game.
Expecting more of the same in Far Cry 5!
