An evil cult takes over an entire town, and it's up to one man or woman and a small resistance force to step in and save the day.
But why? If anything even close to this happened in real life, it wouldn't be a deputy sheriff fighting an entire evil cult, it would be the army. It would be another large group with some extremely heavy firepower. It didn't make any sense, until I read some official PR for the game. Why doesn't the rest of the country step in? They don't know about it.
You’re stranded behind enemy lines in cult-occupied Hope County, Montana, and Now you’re standing alone against deadly odds in Big Sky Country, take down Joseph Seed, the self-styled prophet of Eden’s Gate, and free Hope County from his campaign to save souls by force. And if you’re going to survive long enough to do that, you’re going to need to make some friends. Welcome to Far Cry 5, coming February 27 to PlayStation 4.
It sounds like the cult will be shutting off cell towers and internet in the area. Makes perfect sense for a video game. Although with a map big enough to fly planes in, it's hard to imagine that cult would have the resources to watch every exit that could lead out of the area. And again, you can fly a plane, but you still can't leave? It's an answer that just leads to more questions, but it is an answer.
