Far Cry 6 players on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X, or at least some of them, can now download a classic Far Cry game for free, courtesy of the Far Cry 6 Season Pass. Today, Ubisoft surprised many by releasing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Classic Edition via the aforementioned platforms. For those that don't own the Far Cry 6 Season Pass, the game costs $15. However, for those that do own the season pass of the latest Far Cry game, it's free.
If this sounds familiar, it's because Ubisoft did the same exact thing with Far Cry 3: Classic Edition. The game was re-released under the "Classic Edition" moniker for $15 or could be had for free via the Far Cry 5 Season Pass. As for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, it's a standalone expansion of Far Cry 3 that hit back in 2013 to very solid reviews and commercial success, but not to the level of the game it was an expansion of. Meanwhile, an animation series on Blood Dragon dubbed Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix, is currently in the works.
If you're not interested in playing Far Cry 6 or its DLC, then just buy the game outright for $15, as Far Cry 6 is $60 and its expansion pass is another $40.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is out NOW. Included in the Far Cry 6 Season Pass or available for stand-alone purchase.— Far Cry 6 (@FarCrygame) December 17, 2021
