Far Cry 3 'High Tides' DLC out next week

Free PS3-exclusive expansion for Ubisoft's action-shooter arriving January 15; adds two new co-op chapters.

The first expansion for Far Cry 3 will release exclusively on PlayStation 3 next Tuesday, January 15, Sony has announced. The free High Tides add-on includes two new co-op chapters called Jailbreak and Redemption, which take place where the original six left off.

Included in the High Tides expansion are new missions, "tougher fights," larger competitions, and "explosive moments unlike anything you've seen before."

It is unclear if the content will be made available at a later date for Xbox 360 and PC gamers. For more on Far Cry 3, check out GameSpot's review.

Farcy 3 needs Dinosaurs, Sasquatches, and prehistoric sea monsters. I was hoping Farcry 3 would include all this. Let us hope the DLC will.

These console exclusive DLC's are really pissing me off we all paid for the game everyone should get it.

I'd much rather they give us a new Single player element such as a new Island or something

PS3 can keep it, the co op is uninteresting and boring anyway.

No wonder why it's free, the co-op campaign is a  joke. FREE Single-player campaign DLC, now that would get my attention.

A small DLC pack?  Cool, let me go get $15 and-  What?  It's free?  Seriously?  In this day and age of $15 map packs, they're just giving out extra content for a game that was already massive to begin with?  Well that's a nice change of pace...

It would be cool if Ubisoft updated the Map editor so that people could make and upload Co-op missions to the community. It would make this one of the highest grossing games ever. But I guess they think they can make more money this way...

Lol. You know that the sentiment of entitlement gamers have has gone too far overboard when they complain about getting free stuff. And here I thought the recent news about blaming violence on games was causing me to lose enough brain cells as it is...

Free is Free, yo....it sounded like there is new single player missions included also.  Ill take it. I cant come up with a bad side to DLC that costs nothing....

I love the complaining about FREE DLC, and then read other articles that say DLC is out for 10-20 bucks....and those people complain....why such a high cost? It should be free!!!  Now that it is free....still complaining...it should have been included....now I will agree that this DLC shindig has spiraled out of control....but you can only blame yourself and other gamers for allowing this to happen...you all know it deep down....the only way to really stop this DLC monster now is to boycott buying ANY DLC at all....I am not talking about just for a day but for good. Not just you and your friends but EVERYONE! If there is no activity in money being made, it would go away as anything else that does not make money. Problem is not EVERYONE will do the boycott so there will always be money to be made. AND the worst part about it I bet you anything that at least 90% of the complainers have bought DLC...I know I have...I have part to blame in this horrible DLC world we now "play" in. So in general we should not complain at all if the word FREE is in the price....

@jimmyccckotb 

This isnt the first time Ubisoft have done this, When R6:Vegas was released, they gave us 2x free map pack expansions (Red Pack & Black Pack) which were also free.

Its great to see that Ubi appreciate their audience and 'Give Back' in this manner.

@TheFallenDemon Hmmm... I had always thought how the jungle in FC3 would make a perfect setting for some dinosaurs. :D

@Mr_Mark_Legion One does not simply "move on" with some games. But i agree, this is not one of those games.

@Killer6b9 Well when they release DLC for a crappy part of the game who cares?

@Lotus-Edge Do you even know to make something costs money and time? And  time is crucial in bussiness? The DLC is free but it is not time-free.

The_Last_Paladi

@Lotus-Edge Are you really complaining about this? You would have a point (which I would highly agree with) if they were charging for it, but its free.  There's nothing that is negative about this at all.

@GamerOuTLaWz 360 and PC owners are both on the same boat when it comes to this DLC... O_o

@thequickshooter Wow... "free means it sucks", hear that publishers? Your customers demand payment for all future content. You heard it here first

@ashersid12 @1337hackz I do and we both came to the unanimous conclusion that the co-op campaign sucks more than a Cambodian hooker... and that's saying something.

@CrimsonCorp yeah, but ps and xbox are on the same boat when it comes to graphics and gameplay

@NTenseify @thequickshooter well it's ubisoft 

it's not like rockstar free co-op pack which was awesome

everything free by ubisoft means a cheap DLC, which is small amount of maps to play (maybe like just 2-3 maps) 

but hell who fucking plays FC3 multiplayer? the main course of FC3 is single player

@Psycold @hombreg1 @felixvarela07 ho ho ho ho ha ha ha hee hee hee.... Ubisoft's second main job following the development of video games is screwing PC gamers over. Yeah, I do buy into that cause I game on PC as well.
