It's MSRP now, no longer $20. And it's not 10% off digital, Ubisoft did the same thing with the Gold edition of AC Origins. They made the digital version $10 cheaper essentially charging you for the Steelbook.

It's still up at Target, but obviously you don't get any kind of discount there. Unless you pre-ordered during the B2G1 sale

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

i couldn't decide, so I just went with the Gold. $80 and $10 towards a future item. I usually don't go with the gold/deluxe, but since FC3 is included, I bit. I haven't played that one yet.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

Target shipped out my copy. Can't beat $66.01 for the gold version. After dumping so much time into Wildlands I'm not sure if I'm completely ready for another huge open world game again already, but I'll at least put a few hours in to check it out. That way I can also wait a bit for some bug patches

I have never played a Far Cry game before, but this one is looking pretty good. I am planning on buying it day 1. it looks like they are using the perk system from AC0.

Same boat here.

In-store purchases get a mason jar cup and keychain.

I wonder if we are getting that stuff as well

Do yourself and favor and play FC4 at a minimum. It's excellent.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

I preferred FC3. I played FC3 and FC4 fairly close to each other, and FC4 just seemed to be more of the same.

Both better than Primal though. That one blew IMO.

But FC4 had a gyro-copter!! That was such a great concept...

Yeah, the gyro-copter is what put FC4 over FC3 for me - sometimes I'd just fly it as close to the top of one of the towers, and jump out near the top.

Hell, I thought (briefly) about actually trying to build one.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

I didn't have the game on my list despite loving FC4...but seeing some of the videos on gameplay and all...might need to grab it for more endless all-out fun driving & flying, explosions, guns, flamethrowers, racing, fishing, wildlife and who can turn down a pet Dog that does it all not to mention getting a pet 600lb Grizzly later....

...still don't like the co-op part where one gets credit and the other don't having to go back and replay it. We played a great deal of co-op in Far Cry 4....hard to beat two on Elephants with Rockets mowing bad guys down tossing them like rag-dolls, just the do-overs killed us....so far reviews are in the 7-9 and 4/5 range give or take....but game does look good which is what you expect from Ubisoft....

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

I guess, similar to Far Cry 4, you can "finish" FC5 in just a few minutes if you choose not to do anything during the intro.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

Reviews coming in. This is not a knock on the game at all. But when it comes to sandbox, sometimes I get overwhelmed with so much to do:

But by throwing players into an open-world sandbox, Far Cry 5 casts its narrative direction by the wayside. Although your goal is to kill Seed's three generals (one in each of Hope County's different biomes) before capturing the cult leader, the storytelling quickly takes a backseat.
it sounds like a cool story, if you can get to it, and dont explore too much

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

Weird, they did something similar with the progression in Wildlands. Hopefully it's not like the "climb the tower" thing that was in every open world Ubisoft game.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

I had more fun doing the side quests in FC4 than playing the story.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

Reviews are interesting to read but do not mean anything to me when it comes to Far Cry games. I know what I want the game to be and that is what we are getting. I knew that some people would like have some opposition to this game simply because it tells a story that takes place in America where you are taking out some Americans.

I am curious, are they releasing a physical copy of FC3 for the PS4, or is it going to be download only?

I would guess download only. It's part of the Season Pass.

The Stick of Truth was a digital giveaway with early purchases of The Fractured But Whole, and Ubi gave it a physical release on the XB1/PS4 after a few months, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they did the same with FC3.

Re: Far Cry 5 - 3/27/18

Surprised reviews are all over the place for this. I wonder if losing the hunting/crafting aspect made it feel like too much of a departure for most people?
