Far Cry Classic
Far Cry Classic Dated For February on PSN, Priced Too
Written Thursday, January 09, 2014 By Richard Walker
View author's profile

With Far Cry: The Wild Expedition coming to PS3 next month (except in North America where it's launching as Far Cry Compilation exclusively for PS3 with no Far Cry Classic included), punters will be able to grab Far Cry Classic on its own via the PlayStation Store ahead of the collection's release.

"Far Cry Classic is the premiere and ultimate console version of the very first Far Cry game. Take the role of charter boat captain, Jack Carver, who finds himself hunted by an unrelenting team of highly trained mercenaries in this nature-gone-wrong FPS adventure," reads the press release. "This HD revamp features stunningly realistic foliage, real-time day and night cycles, drivable underwater and flying vehicles which you can commandeer, and more..."

You'll be able to snap up Far Cry Classic as a standalone title on PSN for £7.99 from February 12th, 2014. Or you can get it with Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon as part of the Far Cry: The Wild Expedition bundle on February 14th for £29.99.

Is FC 1 holding up today or is it just for people who want to relive it in an updated fashion?
Have only played FC3 and really enjoyed it.

I will have to keep an eye on this! I've played every game in the Far Cry series except this one (even the crap Wii game).

@1 I'd say no, simply because it wasn't very good back when it came out. After a couple hours it's all just monsters and mutants (as far as I remember), which was pretty boring. The first couple of hours were great though.

Too bad the online in Farcry 2 doesn't save stats anymore.

I'm pretty sure Far Cry Classic will be available as a standalone game in America. The press release we received is UK-based, that's all.

If they fix the FC2 servers, I might buy this.

FC2 server issues... I wanna know if anyone have messaged Ubisoft about this and had a "positive" reply... It would not make sense that they would sell a product that have broken servers...

Why are people complaining about FarCry 2? The game is almost 6 years old, if the issues didn't get fixed then they won't now!

Why on earth would you buy Far Cry compilation having "The wild expedition", also Far Cry 2 sucked... i will consider it anyway.

@ 12, they're not complaining... probably wondering... Ubisoft will release a remastered HD version of FC2, which in effect will be like a new game as new work has been added to the game ... so a (technically) it's new game with (possibly) a broken server doesn't make sense. Ubisoft will be selling you a "new" product/compilation (or whatever they wish to call it) and consumers would expect everything to be working up to acceptable standards... no more, no less...

@14 I don't think they're doing any work on or adding anything to Far Cry 2, just putting it in the bundle as is and being done with it. Far Cry 2 is already a PS3 game in HD,so I don't see any reason they would "update" it.

I have only played Far Cry 3 and after the first mission was completed and I entered free roam I immediately thought to myself this may very well be one of the greatest games ever made (I my own opinion). As I continued to play the game I thought to myself Please bring a collection with all four games, while being a Trophy Guy I only hoped that Far Cry Classic would have trophies, Please PLAYSTATIONTROPHIES.ORG STAFF member please give me an answer on whether or not Far Cry Classic will have trophies. Thank you for you time.

Farcry Classic has achievements so it'll obviously have trophies.

@12: because it's a new issue that came up. I can deal with the 1500 xp cap and restarting every 4 rounds, but no updating at all is unacceptable.

They should at least bloody fix FC2 and it's rubbish online issues before they re-release a game again it should be against the law to re sell a half baked game again and still release it with it's issues that they seriously know.

The first game was awesome, the 2nd one sucks the third one really was the best. Did not play the DLC though. I will only play the first one if there is a platinum for it.

@5, and that is why online trophies are BS. I think all online trophies should have a single player equivalent criteria that also unlocks it. Make it difficult if you want but at least that way server issues won't prevent people from obtaining a platinum.

This would be an amazing value proposition if it wasn't for PS Plus, they have already given away Far Cry 2 and 3, so it makes sense for me to just buy classic and Blood dragon for less than the cost of this bundle

If it wasn't for Plus though i'd be getting this on day one

@1 Far Cry 1 held its own and more against games 4+ years after its release in 2004 and this was back then, if they are enhancing the game then I say it should be worth it. It was the next gen of its era and set the bar very very high for the future of gaming. Unlike the disagreement with Far Cry 2, Far Cry 1 holds a much better standing since it was Crytek as the dev with its Cryengine. This was the game that made the ground work for Crysis. I never regretted playing it.

This is not too bad. I didn't really enjoy Far Cry 2 as much but The Wild Expansion Pack, I'll pick this up and give Far Cry 2 another go.

The original Farcry was a great game. If it is updated with HD Graphics and Trophies, hell yeah, i'm in.

Better than Farcry 2 and the complete Crysis franchise.

Sweet, I was really hoping this would come out by myself. Probably still my favourite Far Cry game (yes, even over the third one). Can't wait to play through it again.

Now that I read that again, is no one else picking up on "drivable underwater and flying vehicles"? They sure as hell weren't in the original version...

This will be available in the US (according to Amazon) but it will only include 2, 3 and Blood Dragon....no original Far Cry. Booooo.

If NA is not getting this compilation, may have to import it for the full pack.

I played the FC1 multiplayer for about 4 years before the online community died but never once completed singlelayer.

I hope this will have multiplayer like the HD update of Doom 3 has a multiplayer mode.

Quote: "I don't think they're doing any work on or adding anything to Far Cry 2, just putting it in the bundle as is and being done with it. Far Cry 2 is already a PS3 game in HD,so I don't see any reason they would "update" it."

yeah I thought about that BUT the earlier article about this by the same author suggested that... since I find these guys reliable, I believe what was mentioned :)

Quoting Richard Walker: "Update In the US, Far Cry: Wild Expedition will be missing Far Cry Classic and comes with a 'full digital remaster' of Far Cry 2. It'll retail for $39.99 and will launch on February 11th, 2014, exclusively for PlayStation 3."

Well anyway, whether it's remastered or not, I just want Ubisoft to announce that the servers will be fixed...

I've only played FC3 and it was bloody great. Only complaint was the formatting of the local co-op but otherwise a brilliant game.

@38 official ubisoft blog mentions about remastered Far Cry 2 as well http://blog.ubi.com/far-cry-compilation-release-date-and-price/

"Enjoy the full digital re-master of the original Far Cry 2, with all patches included."

Maybe "remastered" version means some minor improvement in graphics, game mechanics and bug fixes. I don't think they are going to release new version of the game without fixing the servers.

OR full digital re-master is simply digital version of the game from PS Store released in 2011, which means US Far Cry Compilation might include download code for this game instead of disc.
