If you've already bought the season pass for Far Cry 5, you now have access to Far Cry 3 Classic Edition, a reissue of the first "modern" Far Cry game that took players against the memorable Vaas Montenegro in the year 2013.
Anyone with the Far Cry 5 season pass should now have the Far Cry 3 Classic Edition in their Uplay account so they can log in and download right away. The classic edition will be available as a single purchase for all others on June 26th. That's right, you have early access to a five-year-old game.
This is a bigger deal for owners of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One who are doing it now to be able to play the latest generation game on their newer hardware. On PC side this is good news if you could never play Far Cry 3.

But the Classic Edition does not seem to offer any new reasons to return to the world of Far Cry 3 if you've already played through the game. Ubisoft has not provided any information about graphical upgrades or new options, so it's pretty safe to assume that it's essentially the same game.
If that's the case, do not worry – the first DLC for Far Cry 5, the Vietnam theme "Hours of Darkness" will come out next week. Season ticket holders do not have to wait long for new outposts.
