Whether your friends or you have the Steam and uPlay version of the game. You both can still play the coop mission in Far Cry 5.

Player A will play the current progress of Player B. But all weapons, stats, perks of will be loaded. Player A will not also able to pick a choice during campaign. Only Player B can choose and command it’s squads.
For step below, make sure you both already have uPlay account, in friend list and already completed it’s first side or main mission. You also need to be in the game in order to invite someone.
