Ubisoft has announced that the second post-launch DLC for Far Cry 5 - titled Lost on Mars - will launch on July 17.
The downloadable content will be available for purchase separately or as part of the Far Cry 5 Season Pass.
According to the publisher, "Lost on Mars transports the franchise’s insanity from Hope County to the red planet as Nick Rye is teleported to a hostile planet to help his buddy Hurk thwart an alien invasion of Earth. This adventure gives players a new arsenal of alien weaponry, including the Blaster of Disaster, Hellfire and Morphinator, while also introducing a new traversal tool with Space Jets. Humankind’s future is in the hands of the game’s most notorious guns-for-hire. Time to squash some bugs!"
The arrival of the DLC will also bring with it new Mars-themed assets in Far Cry 5's Arcade mode, even to players who don't own Lost on Mars or the Far Cry 5 Season Pass.
Ubisoft say that "Map builders will be able to integrate these assets into their existing maps or create new sci-fi-themed maps. Future content will also include thematic assets that will be added to Far Cry Arcade for free. Those who download the Lost on Mars DLC will also gain access to new weapons – Obliteratorrrr, Taser Phazer Annihilazer, Nerve Reaper, Grape Popper and Hellfire – to use as they liberate Hope County from the Project at Eden’s Gate."
In our review of Far Cry 5, we said that "For the most part, Far Cry continues to deliver the goods when it comes to fun and dynamic open world gameplay for the little Rambo-wannabe inside you. If you're looking for something a little more, you'll probably come away disappointed."
The final Far Cry 5 DLC update - Dead Living Zombies - is due for release in August.
Far Cry 5 is available now on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC
