Rennes, France, March 8, 2018 — Thrustmaster is thrilled to be channeling its expertise in gaming headsets into the world of Ubisoft®’s Far Cry® for the upcoming game launch of Far Cry® 5. The brand is releasing two multiplatform models, the Y-350CPX and Y-300CPX, allowing co-op teams to immerse themselves into the world of Far Cry 5 – the fictional Hope County, Montana.



Limited Far Cry 5 editions of two award-winning bestsellers
To meet the needs of all gamers, and particularly those who are fans of the Far Cry franchise, Thrustmaster is launching two limited-edition Far Cry 5 headsets for the arrival of this new opus on PS4™, Xbox One® and PC, thanks to an exclusive worldwide partnership with the game on the latest generation of platforms. Using these headsets, gamers will experience all the intensity of the action taking place in Hope County, Montana.
Set in America, a first for the franchise, Far Cry 5 offers players total freedom to navigate a serene-looking yet deeply twisted world as the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana. Players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden's Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance.


Y-350CPX 7.1 Powered Far Cry 5 Edition: The ultimate weapon

With the Y-350CPX 7.1 Powered Far Cry 5 Edition, Thrustmaster offers a high-end headset with unmatched performance sporting the distinctive colors and look of Far Cry 5. The Y-350CPX provides high-resolution audio with perfect reproduction of bass frequencies for optimal rendering of in-game explosions, balanced mids for stable transmission of other players’ voices, and unsaturated treble for crystal-clear sounds of incoming fire.
Ultimately, the Y-350CPX Far Cry 5 Edition will be players’ must-have partner when used in co-op, a mode that Far Cry 5 is all about: your teammates will be able to count on you with an efficient mic and the fine-tuned 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound.
The Y-350CPX 7.1 Powered Far Cry 5 Edition headset boasts an impressive range of features to help players team up to confront the game’s formidable, emblematic characters:

Y-300CPX Far Cry 5 Edition: A real must-have
The Y-300CPX Far Cry 5 Edition is the high-fidelity stereo version of the Y-350CPX model. The Y-300CPX ensures a perfect balance between bass, mids and treble thanks to very high-performance audio rendering, with an ideal frequency response curve for the soundscape in Far Cry 5.
