Far Cry 6 is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on October 7 — but for now, you can grab the rest of the Far Cry series at the lowest prices ever from August 3 to August 10 via the Xbox Store. And if the Far Cry Franchise Sale isn’t enough to draw you in, here’s some more good news: Xbox Live Gold members can play Far Cry 5 for free from August 5 to August 8 as part of Xbox Live Gold Free Play Days.
Far Cry 5 challenges you, a deputy cut off from the outside world, to free rural Hope County, Montana from the grip of a violent doomsday cult led by the charismatic, menacing Joseph Seed, known to his followers as The Father. Putting a stop to their reign of terror isn’t something you can do alone. You’ll need to rally the locals, form a resistance, and use whatever methods you can scrounge to take the county back. Hope County is huge, and you’ll find opportunities not just to shoot a wide variety of weapons, but to team up with a friendly bear, hurl shovels with deadly accuracy, slam souped-up big rigs through cult blockades, and break all kinds of records at some of Hope County’s picturesque fishing spots. There’s plenty to discover, and if you want to keep playing after the free period is up, you’ll be able to grab Far Cry 5 for up to 85% off during the sale.
The sale covers not just Far Cry 5 but the entire Far Cry franchise, giving you a chance to survive and shoot your way through other diverse open worlds, including the pirate-infested tropical islands of Far Cry 3 (up to 70% off); the war-torn African savannas of Far Cry 2 (70% off); and the snowy reaches of an oppressed Himalayan nation in Far Cry 4 (up to 70% off). You can battle neon monstrosities as a cyborg commando in Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon (70% off), travel back to the Stone Age in Far Cry Primal (67% off), explore a brightly colored post-apocalypse in Far Cry New Dawn (up to 80% off), or discover the series’ tropical origins in Far Cry Classic (70% off).
If you’re keeping score, that’s a whole lot of explosive bandit-hunting, wildlife-fighting, landscape-burning, jeep-crashing, rocket-shooting mayhem for not a lot of cash. It’s also a great chance to see where the series has been before sparking a revolution against dictator Antón Castillo in Far Cry 6 – or to test your mettle against villains Vaas, Pagan Min, and Joseph Seed before playing as them in Far Cry 6’s DLC episodes. Just act fast – these deals, and the chance to play Far Cry 5 for free, won’t last long. Check out the entire Far Cry Franchise Sale here.
