Ubisoft announces Far Cry Collection for PS3

But European bundle The Wild Expedition includes original Far Cry and is also coming to Xbox 360 and PC.

Ubisoft has announced the Far Cry Collection for PlayStation 3, a compilation of previous Far Cry titles that will be released across the US on February 11.

The $39.99 Far Cry Collection includes Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, with Ubisoft releasing the bundle to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the FPS series.

Across Europe, however, the bundle is being distributed as Far Cry: The Wild Expedition. This bundle comes with Far Cry Classic, Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, and Far Cry: Blood Dragon, and Eurogamer reports that the compilation will be released for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

Far Cry: The Wild Expedition will be released a few days later, on February 14, and pricing details are yet to be confirmed.

I don't give a damn about what the UK gets. Tell me when the U.S. will get Far Cry Classic on Xbox 360.

Nice deal, unfortunately I already have them all but its a fantastic occasion for people to experience the awesomeness FarCry 2 which is my favorite by a long shot. I dunno but I never got truly into FarCry3 it was fun as long as it lasted but there was something missing I dunno.

I wish Far Cry Instincts Predator would come to pc.  It was a lot of fun.  Split screen in that game was kick ass.


The pc original was better, yes, but I liked Instincts.  It was a hell of a lot better than Far Cry 2.


I never sell games unless I REALLY hate them.  I got it for Christmas when it came out, and after playing it for a few days, I lost interest.  I sold it a few months later.  It was awful.  Far Cry 3, on the other hand was truly amazing.  Totally made up for FC2.

far cry 2 where you play for a bit then die from malaria?

The original was a classic. Why bother buying this without FC1? It deserves to bomb in the NA.

I am calling it now, Blood Dragon is another annoying DLC code and Europe gets the bonus Far Cry Classic code as well. 

Bonus codes of non-ownership lies for everyone with physical product collections!!!

Why don't they include ALL of the games? I really hate it when the original game is not included in a COLLECTION. (Silent Hill, MGS, etc.) Might as well call it a "bundle".

I would love to pick this up if Ubisoft is not still in my boycott list. :(

FC3 is the only installment of the series that interested me enough to make me want to play it. And though the story ended up being disappointing, the gameplay was just so damn great!

So Europe get far cry 1 2 3 and dragon .     Ubisoft would be good idea realse them on next gen as well but I get this when down even more price anyways.

Hands down, Far Cry 3 was one of the most disappointing games of 2012. Holy shit is the map editor and MP terrible. Every single console owner has abandon has the map editor and went back to Far Cry 2 due to how shitty the map editor is in Far Cry 3. And not only that, the MP is close to unplayable. You have to wait for a full lobby for custom maps, and there's issues with the people loading up their game in order to play MP. 


And then you have the trolls that never played a Far Cry game until Far Cry 3 blindly defending Far Cry 3 with the use of trolling (of course) by saying stupid shit like "lol MP" because they have no fucking clue that the map editor and MP are important part in the previous games.

My seeking will be on EU version, Because it`s weirdo the US version for FF doesn`t include farcry1. :)

..In my opinion the best thing to do, to sell my standard farcry 3, get some value or replace it with used game, and wait tell i work and buy the whole collection better, Cause i don`t like one of the sequel with out the previous episodes. :)

Far Cry 2 was good, but maddening. The repetitive checkpoint placements and malaria pills got old really quickly. The rest of the games were fine though, and Blood Dragon was awesome :)

That's pretty dumb that the US doesn't get the first Far Cry, but then again, aside from the shooting and visuals (at first), the game's not that great. I liked Instincts more (though the shooting is arguably better in the original). I don't care about the other ones since I already have them. It would have been better news if they said Far Cry 3 was going to next-gen; then again, I don't know if the visuals are enough to warrant me wanting to get it again, but maybe. Blood Dragon's great.

Damn, if this included the original in the US version, I'd buy it day one... whatever, I still will

Original FarCry was one of the best PC shooters ever made, if it's getting a graphical update for the re-release I'm in

This article is confusing. So the far cry collection is exclusive to PS3 in North America, but it is missing the first game? All of Europe gets the full collection for all 3 platforms? Am I reading this right?

Great news. I have FC1 for PC and it runs perfectly. And I still have to buy/play all the others.

The only one I really need is Blood Dragon, and I bought that last year! Still, great for fans wondering what all the praise is about.

Definitely a purchase for me since I have yet to play them.

In Japan it's called Far Cry bunduru.

A Far Cry collection without the first one is no collection at all. 2 was utter crap, worst enemy placement philosophy I've ever seen in a game

Nothing like commemorating the 10th anniversary of a series by releasing a collection without the game that initiated that 10 years.

I only want the remastered (If it is)Far cry 1. Far cry 2 is TOTAL CRAP!. I already own Far cry 3.

9 comments in 1hr 14 minutes. I think that shows the interest in this.


And considering I grew up in the 80s, and love everything 80s, Blood Dragon was massively disappointing in every way.

FarCrap collection. Only 1st game was good, others open world generic boring crap with stupid story

@Printul_Noptii Farcry 2 was also my favorite. Just a pity people couldn't see passed the respawning enemies, travel times etc. I happened to like the hoards of enemies and travel times. Travelling from A to B always got my adrenaline going because you were certain you were going to be ambushed along the way, even if it was just by a wayward guy in his car. I loved how the bandits would pick on you in the cease fire zones (before you built up your reputation that is!). The buddy system was also very good and I found myself bonding with one of the good looking female buddys. Farcry 2 was also the best looking, I loved driving through the wilderness and coming across a safehouse late in the evening with a bandit lighting a fire outside, or that first time a zebra finds its way into the bull bars of your jeep somehow! Goodtimes. Farcry 3 was disappointing. I think it was probably because I hated Jason Brody. He was like a 10 year old COD player who finally gets to shoot real guns.

Far Cry 2 had repetitive A.I. chasing you every time you drive anywhere. The story was lacking big time. The final mission was crap. It should've been called Far Drive 2.

Far Cry 3 was amazing fun. Great missions, great graphics, better story than FC2. FC3 is my 2012 GOTY.

@pnotheginger thats not true, you can take your time, the malaria plays an important role in the outcome of the ending which was awesome I thought.

@jessie82 FarCry2 is the best FarCry to date ! It doesnt hold your hand and it has a realistic touch, seriously give it a try on the PC.

@plaintomato I agree, how can you offer a bundle without the original game? Cough silent hill HD.

@PStrife I used to HATE digital downloads until I started using Steam.  I love it now.  The games on there are cheap as hell.

I played every FC and absolutely loved 2 but everything you said is batshit insane. Ubisoft completely righted all the wrongs in the previous installments and made an absolute masterpiece in gameplay, setting, soundtrack, characters and atmosphere. I spend hours on map editor and still find new things as for the mp you may be right I haven't spent much time in that department.. I respect your opinion but cmon dude you're being a bit too harsh, no?

@issa3703 It will more then likely just be annoying DLC code though, so basically you need to have a European PSN account to even use it.  It really makes no sense if this were on the actual physical disc, publishers have gotten really really really cheap as of late with these "collections".

@xcollector I like your icon. It's similar to the one I have, though you can't see it. All that's seen it the engineer still. Gah!

@dogfather76 Yeah 2 is really fucking boring. the fire mechanic is really all that was good about it.

@DrKill09 @PStrife Nothing wrong with digital downloads. It's just annoying when you buy it physically, then have to download it on steam like with Skyrim, Metro, Dishonored, etc.

@UnaSolida You're talking about the PC version of Far Cry 3, right? I'm talking about the console version of Far Cry 3, which is indeed shit.

@Karl_Hummer @Saidrex CoD? I better play worst movie licence game than this crap. And Battlefield when they get rid of that malware - origin

Nah, I play on Xbox and I'm sure the PC version looked and ran much smoother. But for the console I thought it was a great game that's just me tho it delived on all my expectations again if you're really into uploading and playing on user content then you may be right I dunno I just think the story mode and dickin around with map editor like making the AI fight was so incrediblely fun and I enjoyed it a lot well worth the $60 price tag to me. But hopefully they come through for ya on FC4 without messing up what I loved about FC3 :)

@Karl_Hummer @Saidrex Far Cry 1 & 3 are among my favorite FPS games ever (and I've played a lot of FPS in the past 20 years)

@Saidrex@Karl_HummerOK, I'm sorry I thought you are that kind of person/gamer.  I respect your opinion on Far Cry series (I personally loved FC3) but may I ask you what is your favorite FPS?
