Far Cry Classic Announced
The original Far Cry was a top release back in the day, helped by about a trillion free demo disks and some rather clever design choices. The original Far Cry never actually made it to consoles, instead replaced by a similar but less hardware intensive Far Cry Instincts. That changes this week, with the release of Far Cry Classic on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
That’s right – you’ve probably not heard of it and you’ve not seen screenshots or video. This isn’t something that’s been dragging around for months. Far Cry Classic was actually announced late last week and will be released tomorrow.
To be fair, it’s not going to be a big purchase for people that loved Far Cry 2 and 3. The series has evolved almost with each iteration, and going backwards will probably seem quite underwhelming now. To add to that, those of us with PC copies can still use them. Of course, Ubisoft are hoping those that loved Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon – and there were a lot of us – will decide to jump back to the first entry just because, and I don’t suppose there’s anything wrong with having the ability to do that.
You’ll be able to pick up Far Cry Classic as your local store updates this week. It’ll cost $10.
