Far Cry 5, like a few of Ubisoft's high profile releases, has come with the promise of a weird and wonderful DLC schedule that takes the base game and places it in increasingly strange scenarios. Lost on Mars is the latest bizarre excursion for the open world shooter, and it's probably about what you're expecting.
It doesn't take itself seriously at all, starting with a sketchy setup that sees Nick Rye beamed up to the red planet by none other than Hurk. He needs your help to prevent a Martian invasion of Earth, because there's only so much that a floating head can accomplish. Yes, Hurk's body has been unceremoniously removed, parts of which are scattered across the surface of Mars. To save the Earth, you'll need to return power to various outposts and stations across the map to restore a powerful AI named ANNE.
The story unfolds as you restore power to antennas, research stations, et al, and it's all delivered with a droll humour that you'll love or hate. Hurk's consciousness is transferred into a robot and can aid you in combat, and his crude commentary is a near constant presence. The map is a fraction of the size of Far Cry 5's, and there isn't a whole lot in it to hold your attention beyond the main objectives: get power cores, get Hurk's body parts, restore power to the various stations. One or two side activities are available, though. You're tasked with hunting down all 15 Queen Arachnids, each one acting as a mini boss, and there are also, oddly, a few Clutch Nixon stunt races. If you like, you can also try to find all the notes left behind by Larry, the human brought to Mars before Hurk.
