After months of waiting, Far Cry 5 is finally available, however, console users who are looking to get their hands on Far Cry 3 Classic Edition, will have to wait just a little bit longer before getting their hands on the re-release.
According to Ubisoft, Far Cry 3 Classic Edition will launch on Tuesday, June 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, there is an opportunity to access the game four weeks early on Tuesday, May 29. This will be accessible to all PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners, who purchased Far Cry 5 Gold Edition (which comes with the game’s Season Pass). Of course, if you did not buy the Gold Edition, you can still buy the Season Pass separately for $29.99 and still receive four weeks early access to the title. Although a release point for its standalone release has been announced, the French publisher has yet to reveal its individual retail price.
Initially released in 2012 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, Far Cry 3 is often regarded as one of the best titles in the franchise and set the standard for future installments for the series. Set on a tropical Island between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, players control Jason Brody, who embarks on a mission to save his friends who have been kidnapped by pirates after a vacation gone astray.
Although many gamers are probably disappointed to hear that they will need to wait several more weeks (especially considering many people purchased extra content for Far Cry 5), Ubisoft has certainly provided an incentive to those who still purchased (or intend on purchasing) the game’s Season Pass.
