Far Cry 3 is regarded by many gamers and critics as the best title in the staple franchise. The villain was devious and the plot was equally insane. Beforehand, Xbox One players could only play the backward compatible version, but Far Cry 3: Classic Edition runs at 1440p 30 FPS on Xbox One X and is the best console version around. Even Digital Foundry praised its stability on Microsoft's new console.

Far Cry 3: Classic Edition is now available for $29.99 as a standalone purchase. If you don't want to buy the Far Cry 5: Season Pass, then this is the only way to get it. Far Cry 5: Season Pass holders were able to play the game a month before everyone else.
