Far Cry 5 Devs Explain Why John Seed Is Such A Terrifying Character

One of the element that make Far Cry series special is its charming and mesmerize antagonist like Vaas Montenegro in Far Cry 3 or Pagan Min from Far Cry 4. This time also a charismatic character is introduced i.e. Joseph Seed but Joseph has taken his younger brother with him, John Seed.

In the latest edition of IGNFirst, Ubisoft Creative Director Dan Hay and Narrative Director Jean-Sebastien Decant explain why the youngest member of the Seed clan might be the most dangerous.

John was horribly abused as a child in foster homes and later he secured hislaw degree and become the face of the cult. In fact, John is most important member as to spread the message behind the movement with his own slogan “Just say yes”. John effectively serves as the cult’s PR director under his older brother Joseph.

John’s complex character will play an important factor in the game’s plot.While John serves his older brother in his mission and follows his command he also questions Joseph’s intentions and sometime is irritated by him. Deep within John is victim of his own vanity

Here’s how Hay sums up John’s outlook on life:

“He's potent. He attacks the world or explores the world in a very specific way. If you're building a villain with the complexity of John, one of the really interesting things about someone who has nothing to lose is that you can't bargain with him. John has been through everything. There's nothing you can do to this guy. Nothing surprises him. As a result, it's very difficult to go around him, to go through him. He's just there, and he almost knows everything the player is going to do. And so I think that creates a level of complexity in terms of making a great villain: somebody who does bad stuff but also says 'well you do bad stuff too.’”
