Far Cry 3 was arguably the best game in the series. It put the Far Cry name in the spotlight and featured one of the most memorable villains in a game, Vaas. Far Cry 3 was also released at the end of last generation consoles so it didn’t manage to perform as well for an open world game.
Ubisoft has made Far Cry 3 a part of the Far Cry 5 season pass so if you own the season pass for the game, you can download it free of cost from the PlayStation Store. The store link lists the classic edition of the game which is the version that is available for the season pass users. It is currently not available to purchase through any other way aside from the season pass.
The download size for the Far Cry 3 remaster is a little over 8 GB. The game appears to be a remaster although not a full visual remake. Even if you have played the base game on the PS3 or Xbox 360, this one appears to be a rather significant update with the improved resolution and frame rate.
Far Cry 3: Classic Edition should be available to download starting today for the PS4 and Xbox One. Those who own Far Cry 5 Gold Edition or the season pass for Far Cry 5 will be able to download it now. Ubisoft has confirmed that they will release this remaster for purchase at a later date.
