The countdown is underway, to the release of a blockbuster video game, set in our own backyard.

On March 27th, we will be taking part in the liberation of Hope County, MT. In the first ever game in the Far Cry franchise to take place on American soil. The game's story follows a religious cult that makes a land grab around much of small town Montana. The cult calls themselves "Eden Gate," and judging from the most recent trailer, they are not the most stable organization in the world.

Check out the LIVE ACTION trailer from the upcoming game, which shows that the story might be a lot deeper than your average gaming experience. Also, doesn't the cult leader looks a lot like Matthew Mcconaughey?
