Ubisoft is giving away Far Cry 3, widely regarded as the best Far Cry game, until September 11, 2021, only on PC.

Ubisoft’s Far Cry series is known for taking the players into exotic locations where they fight an oppressive figurehead and take the control back for the people. Crytek initially developed the series as a demonstration for their Cry Engine, but starting from Far Cry 2 in 2008, Ubisoft Montreal has helmed the franchise in its Dunia engine.

Far Cry titles are known for their exotic locales, variety of arsenal to spread chaos, and iconic antagonists. With the sixth mainline game coming up, there is no better time to jump back into one of the most enjoyable games in the franchise, Far Cry 3.
