Ubisoft's upcoming Far Cry 3 Classic Edition is reportedly coming to brick-and-mortar retailers, if a listing on a New Zealand retailer is anything to go by.

Far Cry 5 Season Pass holders will be getting a digital copy of the critically acclaimed open-world title, although Ubisoft previously revealed it would be giving the Classic Edition a standalone launch too. However, at the time it wasn't known if this would mean a digital-only release, but it seems this won't be the case. Still, we'd hold off cracking out the party hats just yet, as nothing official has been confirmed.

Far Cry 3 Classic Edition is pretty much what it says on the tin: It's the same game you played back in 2012, albeit with snazzier visuals that help to smooth over some of the cracks that have appeared in the passing of time. 

If you haven't managed to play Far Cry 3 yet, then it's probably worth holding on to your cash and waiting for the Classic Edition to hit shops. In terms of gameplay, it's pretty much Far Cry as you'd expect; the real jewel in the crown comes in the shape of Vaas, the game's mad-as-a-hatter antagonist who has to go down as one of gaming's best baddies from the past decade or so.

Be sure to give Colm's review of Far Cry 5 a read while you're at it, as it's well worth a punt.
