Europe Getting PS3, PS4 Far Cry 4 Bundles
Special-edition PlayStation hardware bundles announced today.
On Friday, Sony of Europe announced a pair of new PlayStation hardware bundles centered around Ubisoft's upcoming open-world game Far Cry 4. Special-edition PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 bundles that come with free copies of the game will be available at launch in Europe when the game is released in November.
Currently, the bundles are confirmed for Europe only. We have reached out to Ubisoft, asking about plans for North America. We'll update this post with anything we hear back.
Not only have Ubisoft and Sony teamed up for these special-edition PlayStation consoles, but PlayStation fans are also getting an exclusive multiplayer sharing feature.
PS3 and PS4 Far Cry 4 players who have a PlayStation Plus subscription ($50/year) will be given ten invitations that they can send to PlayStation Network friends to play a free trial of the game's online co-op mode. No such feature has been announced for the Xbox 360 or Xbox One versions of the game.
Far Cry 4 launches November 18 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. We recently sat down with prolific voice actor Troy Baker, who voices Far Cry 4's main villain, Pagan Min, and interviewed him about the role and what it means to him.
