Far Cry Classic
Reminder: Far Cry Classic is Out Next Week, Says Ubisoft

We already know this, but Ubisoft has doubly confirmed that Far Cry Classic is heading to the PlayStation Network next week, just in case we'd all been mind-wiped. Plus, we've got our hands on some screenshots too, so it's worth a quick news post.

Far Cry Classic will feature "enhanced graphics and revamped cutscenes, along with a new interface to help you on your journey," says Ubisoft. "This is the perfect opportunity for you to see how the series began, or even experience it again if you’ve been meaning to go back."

For the uninitiated, you play as ship captain John Carver, a man who finds himself stranded on a mysterious tropical island and hunted by mercenaries. Stealth, strategy and shooty shooty bits will all factor in to Carver's fight for survival, when Far Cry Classic launches on PSN on February 11th in North America for $9.99 and in Europe on February 12th for £7.99. Get some screens below.

@1:

The server issue from a couple of weeks back has been fixed but the servers are still terrible and will forget your stats on a regular basis before remembering them again a few hours later.

@1 the servers are powered by hamsters that when they change over to a fresh little guy it's at this point it's forgot your stats because it takes a while for it to get up to speed to remember them again

@ Terminator, so it's a 50/50 chance then? I really hope they can truly sort out the problem... It would be nice to have all 4 Far Cry games in your tally..

Cheers!

Cool, I think I'll pick this up sometime. It might motivate me to play Far Cry 3 afterwards. I ran into the trophy list for this game on PSN Profiles, though I see the list has been floating around for a little while so I guess it's not that great of a discovery, but here it is:

Should be a PS3-only game, to all those asking.

Farcry 1 is a great game and don't let the poor Farcry 2 game put you off.

This is also being released in a box set, in the boxset will be

Farcry
Farcry 2
Farcry 3
Farcry Blood Dragon

boxset is only £29.99 but can be pre-ordered online for as little as £24.

$10 isn't too bad, but I still might wait for a sale.

@3 I played all 3 main games, Far Cry 3 was influenced heavily on the first game. I highly recommend it, because Far Cry 1 set the bar really high with the introduction of the Cry Engine.

@21 No this is the original PC version which was a lot more superior than instincts in every way.

And don't have the rubbish feral mode.

@25 For some reason the American edition box set doesn't include Far Cry 1, but over at Europe it does with a different cover to represent it.
