Far Cry Classic, the HD re-release of Crytek's 10-years-old shooter, is already beached on the shores of the Xbox Games Store, priced $10/£8/10 euros. The revamp, which features redone cut scenes and a new user interface, is also due on PlayStation Network later today in North America, and Europe tomorrow.
Alternatively, Europeans can hunt it down as part of the Far Cry: The Wild Expedition bundle, which also includes Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, and the standalone 80s-inspired romp Blood Dragon. The PS3, Xbox 360, and PC compilation is out in Europe this week, priced 40 euros, except in the UK where it's been delayed a week. It'll now reach the not-so-tropical island on February 21, priced £30 on PS3 and Xbox 360, and £25 on PC.
Just to confuse matters a little bit further, the Wild Expedition bundle isn't coming to North America. In its stead is the Far Cry Compilation, a PS3-only collection that's the same as The Wild Expedition, except it doesn't include Far Cry Classic. Make of that what you will, but in any case you can pick up the Compilation starting today for $40.
