Ubisoft has opted to pass on releasing the upcoming Far Cry Compilation for the Xbox 360 here in the States, but we’ll be receiving an HD remaster of the original Far Cry on February 12th via XBLA.
Simply titled Far Cry Classic, the press release states that it’ll be the “premiere and ultimate console version of the very first Far Cry game” and will only be available in North America as a download. Far Cry Compilation, however, will contain Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3 & Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for a mere $29.99, but will only be available in North America for the Playstation 3.
Xbox gamers across the pond will get a bit more love, as Far Cry: The Wild Expedition will release with each of those games and Far Cry Classic. Although I’m a bit jealous, it’s nice to see our friends on the other side of the world get some love.
If you haven’t picked up any of the other Far Cry titles, there is currently a sale running on Xbox Live for Gold subscribers, which nets you some pretty hefty discounts on each game and their respective DLC. Far Cry Instincts – Predator, Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon are sitting around $5.00 each, and you can snag Far Cry 3 for $14.99, all for a limited time.
