Far Cry 5’s season pass detailed: fight across Vietnam, Mars, and play Far Cry 3 Classic Edition

Get updated PS4 version of FC3 plus three expansions for Ubisoft’s new open-world shooter

Far Cry 5 focuses on the battle to free Hope County, Montana, from the grip of The Project at Eden’s Gate cult, but its post-launch content will take PlayStation owners far beyond rural America. The Far Cry 5 Season Pass includes access to three new expansions.

In Dead Living Zombies, you’ll struggle to survive in a zombie-infested wasteland, facing off against hordes of the undead. In Hours of Darkness, you’ll trade gunfire with Vietcong fighters in Vietnam, while Lost on Mars takes you to the titular red planet to test your mettle against Martian arachnids.

TITLE

The Season Pass also includes a return to a familiar location, specifically the Rook Islands. Far Cry 3 Classic Edition is an update to the classic open-world adventure game that will give players an opportunity to come face-to-face with Vaas, one of gaming’s most notorious villains, for the first time on PS4.

In fact, one of the team’s fondest memories of working on Far Cry 3 happened when Michael Mando, voice actor for Vaas, came to the studio dressed up in full Vaas gear and took pictures with everyone from the dev team for two hours.

TITLE

During the development of the game, Dan Hay, creative director, had a running bet with everyone on the team that if the game got a certain amount of high review scores, then he’d get a tattoo. The team hit the goal, so he ended up getting his Far Cry 3 ink (we secretly hope it is a honey badger, but cannot confirm).

Far Cry 5 Season Pass holders will get to re-experience the Rook Islands early, before Far Cry 3 Classic Edition goes on sale as a standalone game.

TITLE

Far Cry 5 launches on PS4 on 27th March. The standard, Deluxe, and Gold Editions are now available for preorder from the PlayStation Store, and the Gold Edition comes bundled with the Season Pass. There’ll be plenty of wild new territory to discover and blow to smithereens, so get ready to grab a co-op buddy (or just some local Montanan Guns for Hire) and go berserk.

Not gonna happen farcry 3 classic digital only

Well done ubisoft you have sold me on the season pass

Far Cry 3 got announced as a back compatible title on the XBOX one this week.

Hey Sony, I own FC3 on the PS3 digitally, will it also transfer over to the PS4? Or have I backed the wrong horse here?

You’d have to ask Ubi, not Sony. It’s their game, it’s their decision whether or not you get access to the PS4 version because you own the PS3 version. I’m guessing the answer is no.

But if the Far Cry 3 is a proper remastered version with high resolution and high frame-rate… i guess its a better deal that the backward compatable version, don’t you think?

Sure, but the new trailer put out doesn’t show any improvement or changes. If it was a remaster, they would have said so.

Agreed, I’m not a season pass fan but this one, for once, seems worth it.

Just pre-ordered the Gold Edition.

il pre order in 2 weeks gold

Definitely looks like the best one since 3. Primal was pretty disappointing imo. Might pick up the season pass on a sale if I enjoy this one. Don’t even know I’ll get the game on release since it releases in the same week as Ni No Kuni 2 and that gets priority.

I think the series really needs a bit of a makeover. What really bugs me is how it technically hasn’t really evolved since 3. Specifically the fact that you can’t see your underbody and legs is really out of date for a shooter nowadays imo (even some indies like Edith Finch can pull it off). Especially considering it’s an open world game, I want to feel more of a connection to my character, and not have it feel like a floating entity. It could also favor from some better character development as I’ve never felt the protagonist to be fleshed out or even remotely interesting for that matter.

Yeah Ni No Kuni 2 gets priority for me also. Bored of zombies in fps’s, I sorta wanted a FC5 Blood Dragon type dlc just for [DELETED]’n’giggles. Guess Vietnam will probably be a prequel to one of 5’s characters, not sure how they’ll work in a Mars dlc though.

…why would a Far Cry 3 tattoo involve honey badgers in any way? They weren’t in the series until FC4. Maybe an angry cassowary instead?

I pre-ordered the physical Gold edition for £49.99

No way in hell i’m paying a pathetic £70 for a digital equivalent.
