One of 2018's biggest games has a chilling area that pays tribute to Pennywise and co.

It turns out that Far Cry 5, the massive open world game that has just been released, contains a reference to one of the biggest horror films of the past few years: IT.

As I'm sure you already know, IT revolves around a demonic creature named Pennywise which takes the form of the things people that are frightened of (spoiler alert I guess, but who hasn't seen 'IT' at this point?)

Pennywise is perhaps best known for taking the form of a clown - a clown who holds a balloon, and that's where Far Cry 5 comes into the equation. The game makers appear to have created a hidden area which pays homage to this very mean clown and his very mean antics.

The area was discovered by a YouTuber named Captain Eggcellent, who captured it on film for your viewing pleasure. He even helpfully cut in some clips from the film for comparison, cos he's nice like that.

In a certain section of the map, the player can come across an open sewer pipe, not unlike the kind the Losers' Club roamed in the 2017 smash hit horror film. Drawing closer to the pipe, you will see a single red balloon, floating near the entrance.

But it's still a far cry from the horror of the actual film. Take a look at the secret, right here:
