Happy 20th anniversary Far Cry! — Ubisoft commemorates franchise with sale

Hard to believe we’ve been dethroning dictators in outlandish settings for twenty years, but it’s true. Far Cry has been around for twenty years as of this month, and Ubisoft is celebrating with a special sale. All of the details are below, this is the perfect time to immerse yourself in the excellence that is the Far Cry series.

Far Cry debuted on March 23, 2004, meaning that next week, it will have been 20 years since Jack Carver first washed up on the shore of a tropical paradise teeming with hostile mercenaries. And to celebrate, the entire franchise is going on sale for up to 85% off via the Ubisoft StoreSteam, and other online storefronts from now until April 3 (discount timings may vary depending on platform).

You can also tune in to Ubisoft’s 20th-anniversary livestream at 6:00 PM CET/10:00 AM PT on March 21 at twitch.tv/ubisoft and see Far Cry developers share stories and memorable moments from the series’ history. While the stream won’t present any new game content or announcements, viewers can expect to grab Twitch drops for Far Cry 6.

Since Jack’s initial splash 20 years ago, more than 90 million players have experienced explosive, open-world conflict as mercenaries on the hunt for the Jackal, as Jason Brody on a quest to save his friends from the heart of darkness, or as Dani Rojas swept into a revolution as a reluctant guerrilla. They’ve rediscovered a forgotten heritage amid the peaks of Kyrat as Ajay Ghale, liberated rural Hope County as the nameless Deputy, and fought for its post-apocalyptic survival as the Security Captain. They’ve even carved their way through ancient megafauna as the prehistoric hunter Takkar and battled giant Blood Dragons as cyborg commando Rex “Power” Colt in the neon future world of 2007. And if you haven’t yet joined them, now’s your chance to do so at a big discount.
