The discount on Far Cry 5 is running for a limited time with no known expiration date, if we had to take a guess, we are estimating that it will expire later this week before the weekend. Note that there is a caveat to the NEW20 code on Far Cry 5: you'll have to be a new customer at GMG and use the coupon within 24 hours of account activation for the code to work. While GMG hasn't defined what a new customer is, by all accounts, it appears using a new email address will be sufficient.
As of writing, Far Cry 5 has a "Very Positive" rating on Steam Store, with 82% of the almost 2,000 user reviews being on the positive side. Being a Ubisoft title, you'll need to install Uplay for the game. The key being sold at GMG for Far Cry 5 is a Uplay key.
Far Cry 5 Gold Edition vs Deluxe Edition
While the Doomsday Prepper Pack preorder bonus is no longer available now that the game is released, you can essentially find extra cosmetic goodies in the Deluxe Edition of the game. Personally, we don't think Far Cry 5 Deluxe Edition is worth the money whatsoever (none of the packs include items that have real content depth). For example, the Deluxe includes the Ace Pilot and Big Game Hunter Pack which lists an Aerial Force Helicopter and Big Game Hunter ATV - but both of these vehicles are available regardless in Standard Edition, just simply in a different skin.
Conversely, Gold Edition makes more sense as it will include the Far Cry 5 Season Pass, which is looking to include four major DLCs: Hours of Darkness, Dead Living Zombies, and Lost on Mars. In fact, Gold Edition even includes a free copy of Far Cry 3 Classic Edition as an added bonus.
