Far Cry 5 Season Pass Owners Can Get Far Cry 3 Classic Now

If you purchased the Far Cry 5 season pass, you can now download the Classic Edition Of Far Cry 3 on your respective console.  PC owners will get the full edition of the game as well, indicating that the release will contain all of the previous DLC for console players at well. 

At the time, there is little information on what else is in the Classic Edition other than the expanded content and there is no solid information on whether the game has received framerate or resolution upgrades on console. The Classic Edition will get a standalone release on June 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Our Take:
Far Cry 3 was the start of what we now see as the Ubisoft formula for the games it produces. While it may not be a classic just yet, the game was a great title that really re-invigorated the series (I am a ride or die Far Cry 2 man myself) and spawned a litany of sequels.  This re-release will give another generation a chance to see where the Far Cry we know today started.
