Rather than expanding on Far Cry 5’s storyline with its first three pieces of DLC, Ubisoft is heading in a completely different direction. Dead Living Zombies will pit players against “hordes of the undead” in a “zombie-infested wasteland.” Hours of Darkness takes players to Vietnam, where they will do battle against the Viet Cong. Finally, Lost on Mars zips them into a spacesuit and drops them onto the red planet to fight against giant spiders.
All three experiences stand in stark contrast to Far Cry 5’s controversial take on right-wing extremism in rural Montana. They seem more in line with Blood Dragon, a cyber-punk adventure that surprised fans when it was released as a stand-alone expansion for Far Cry 3.
As it turns out, the included Far Cry 3 Classic Edition will also be a stand-alone game sold separately. Those who pre-order the Far Cry 5 season pass will get access to it four weeks early. The remaster is described as “an update to the classic open-world adventure game.” We’ve reached out to Ubisoft to get details on what, if anything, has changed content-wise from the 2012 release.
Here’s a look at the remastered version of Far Cry 3 in action:
The season pass for Far Cry 5 is available right now with the gold version of that game, which runs $89.99 for the digital version and $99.99 for a physical copy.
