Pricing on Far Cry: New Dawn is Fantastic
Far Cry is easily one of our favourite franchises here at GamesReviews.com, so naturally we are as excited as anyone else about the prospect of playing Far Cry: New Dawn in the next few weeks. Much has been made about the game simply being a clone of Far Cry 5, and while you will trek around the same, things look and feel very differently. On top of that, Ubisoft is releasing this as a budget title, so you won’t pay the regular 59.99 or 79.99!
Ubisoft has always been fantastic at pricing their experiences well, understanding that ports and re-releases aren’t likely to fetch the premium price. Also, when they get the opportunity to reuse assets for a second experience – see Far Cry: New Dawn, a continuation of sorts of Far Cry 5 – those savings are also passed onto the consumer. While Ubisoft would lose a few customers at a premium price tag, there are more than enough people out there who will buy New Dawn regardless, so the slight price cut is phenomenal.
Here is more form Ubisoft on this experience:
Face off against the Highwaymen and their leaders, the Twins as you fight to survive in a post-apocalyptic frontier. Form unexpected alliances, build a deadly arsenal of makeshift weapons using the remnants of the old world.
