Far Cry Classic Getting Standalone European Release in February

Posted on January 10, 2014 AT 03:53am

Far Cry Classic, the HD revamp of the original Crytek-developed shooter, will be released as part of the Far Cry: The Wild Expedition compilation in Europe, but will also receive a standalone release, according to Ubisoft.

Far Cry Classic is the premiere and ultimate console version of the very first Far Cry game,” reads the publisher’s official description. “Take the role of charter boat captain, Jack Carver, who finds himself hunted by an unrelenting team of highly trained mercenaries in this nature-gone-wrong FPS adventure.

“This HD revamp features stunningly realistic foliage, real-time day and night cycles, drivable underwater and flying vehicles which you can commandeer, and more…”

Far Cry Classic will cost £8 on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network when it releases on February 12. There was no word on a U.S. standalone release.

The publisher recently announced the Far Cry Compilation for North America, which contains Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, plus all released DLC, but Far Cry Classic is missing from the collection.
