Far Cry 3 For PC Being Given Away For Free By Ubisoft

From now until this coming Saturday, PC players can claim the seminal Far Cry 3 for free, courtesy of a giveaway from Ubisoft. Developed by Ubisoft Montréal, the crew behind Splinter Cell and Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3 hit stores in late 2012 for PC and seventh-generation consoles. The dynamic open-world gameplay, exploration, and Heart of Darkness-inspired story captivated millions of players, yet the villainous Vaas is what keeps the title in the conversation nearly a decade later.

Actor Michael Mando, now known for Orphan Black and Better Call Saul, brought Vaas to life, essentially drafting the blueprint for Far Cry villains that would follow in his stead. Far Cry 4 dropped players into the world of the eccentric Pagan Min, played by Troy Baker. Greg Bryk took lead as Far Cry 5's Joseph Seed, a David Koresh-like cult leader whose charisma proved equal parts fascinating and unsettling. The brand's sixth mainline entry arrives this fall, complete with a tyrannical antagonist, Antón Castillo, played by Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad fame. In preparation for the next adventure, some players may want to revisit the franchise's inflection point.

By visiting the "Giveaway" page on Ubisoft's official website, Ubisoft Connect PC players can download free access to Far Cry 3. This deal for the open-world first-person adventure will last from today, September 7, through September 11 at 1:30 AM local time. Those who don't already have a Ubisoft Connect account need only to register should they choose to take advantage of the limited-time free offer.

This free offer arguably couldn't have gone live at a better time, considering the impending rollout of Far Cry 6. Like Far Cry 3 before it, the sixth mainline installment takes place in a tropical environment, though the franchise's newest setting obviously took cues from real-world Cuba.

Far Cry 3 placed players in the role of Jason Brody, a young man vacationing in the fictional Rook Islands with his brother, girlfriend, and a small group of friends. What starts as a fun trip quickly morphs into a twisted game of survival for Jason and his loved ones. By the end of it all, Jason stands transformed, a new man whose fate rests in the hands of a deceptively simple player-based decision.
