Ubisoft has announced that it will be delaying the UK launch of its Far Cry games compilation by a week. The games bundle was originally slated for a Valentine's Day launch (Friday 14th Feb) but has now been shifted to the 21st February in the UK.

Ubisoft hasn't given a reason for the delay but nonetheless managed to wax lyrical about the new Far Cry: The Wild Expedition collection saying the bundle offers a "great opportunity to discover or re-discover all the main Far Cry opuses that have left an indelible mark in the video-games landscape, from the innovations of the original game to the retro-futuristic mayhem of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon."

There are two versions of the Far Cry games compilation being made available;

  • In Europe - Far Cry: The Wild Expedition includes Far Cry Classic, Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3 and Far Cry Blood Dragon. It will cost £30 on PS3 and Xbox 360, and £25 on PC. Some European countries will still get this compilation this week priced at 40 Euros.
  • In the US - Far Cry Compilation includes Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, and Blood Dragon. It is said to be available now on the PlayStation Network costing $40. It is expected that Far Cry Classic will be released separately in the US.

Far Cry Classic

If you have digested the convoluted permutation of launch dates/bundles above, then you still might be wondering about what is Far Cry Classic? This updated version of the original game offers "graphical enhancements, revamped cutscenes, and a fresh new UI, Far Cry Classic allows players to experience all the action and chilling gameplay that made Far Cry® legendary -- now remastered in HD". Joystiq says its already available standalone in the Xbox Games Store and PSN for $10/£8/10 euros.

UK console and PC users might be a little irked by the delay here but Far Cry: The Wild Expedition will be a decent games compilation at £30/£25 before various retailers get their discount scissors out.

Far Cry classic sounds like a must-have. Loved the game and now with enhanced gfx!
Far Cry is still my fav single player FPS game ever. With enhanced graphics I will now have to replay it for a 5th time.

“where did he go”
"how do you like those apples?“
”I'm going to shoot you in the face…“
”Fresh Meat!“
”Jack… I'm marrying Cal“
”D.O.Y.L.E!"

(Spot the odd one out)
Loved far cry right up until the Trigen things, ruined it there for me.
Am I missing something? This is all old stuff if you've played FC3?!
