Ubisoft also announced Far Cry 3: Classic Edition for consoles as part of the Season Pass.

Season passes are definitely here to stay with many larger titles offering them up as a way to save on future DLC for the game. Far Cry is no exception and Ubisoft has unveiled the contents of the Far Cry 5 Season Pass. While DLC usually expands the game’s story or adds multiplayer content, this Season Pass is sure to raise a few eyebrows.

Alongside dropping a story trailer for the game yesterday, Ubisoft also announced that Far Cry 3 Classic Edition for consoles would be part of the Season Pass. Those who purchase the Season Pass will be able to play Far Cry 3 Classic Edition on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 four weeks before its standalone release in the summer. PC players will get a copy of the Far Cry 3 base game.

The Season Pass will include three “uncanny adventures” which will have gamers facing off against hordes of zombies, escaping from behind Vietcong enemy lines, and saving Earth from a Martian arachnid invasion. Personally, I can’t help but think of the parallels of the zaniness of some of these to Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, the over-the-top 80s inspired standalone expansion to Far Cry 3.

As zany as it sounds, I’m looking forward to seeing how, or even if, the contents of the Far Cry 5 Season Pass fits into the main story of the game. Given the story of the main game though, present-day America in turmoil and the Eden’s Gate cult has taken over Hope County, Montana. That in itself is going to be a crazy and interesting enough storyline and given the release of Blood Dragon, I wouldn’t doubt that these three DLC adventures will be more of a standalone story as well.

Are you looking forward to Far Cry 5? What do you think of the Season Pass contents? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.
