Far Cry 6 players on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X, or at least some of them, can now download a classic Far Cry game for free, courtesy of the Far Cry 6 Season Pass. Today, Ubisoft surprised many by releasing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Classic Edition via the aforementioned platforms. For those that don’t own the Far Cry 6 Season Pass, the game costs $15. However, for those that do own the season pass of the latest Far Cry game, it’s free.
If this sounds familiar, it’s because Ubisoft did the same exact thing with Far Cry 3: Classic Edition. The game was re-released under the “Classic Edition” moniker for $15 or could be had for free via the Far Cry 5 Season Pass. As for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, it’s a standalone expansion of Far Cry 3 that hit back in 2013 to very solid reviews and commercial success, but not to the level of the game it was an expansion of. Meanwhile, an animation series on Blood Dragon dubbed Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix, is currently in the works.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is out NOW. Included in the Far Cry 6 Season Pass or available for stand-alone purchase.
We’re in 2007 and it’s already the future. Become sergeant Rex Colt and (re)discover this fan-favorite game.#FarCry6

If you’re not interested in playing Far Cry 6 or its DLC, then just buy the game outright for $15, as Far Cry 6 is $60 and its expansion pass is another $40.
“Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter,” reads an official pitch of the game. “Welcome to an 80’s vision of the future. The year is 2007 and you are Sargent Rex Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando. Your mission: get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world. Experience every cliche of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals) collide.”
