doesn't get a mention at all, so it's likely not included in the set.
The Far Cry
series, which first appeared on PC way back in 2004, was one of the early shining examples of how to do free-roaming adventuring right, a feature that has become much more prevalent in gaming today. Each of the titles in the series had their own self-contained story, but all took place in some beautiful but dangerous backdrop, such as the mountains, forests and beaches of a secluded tropical island wonderland, the jungles and savannas of Africa, or in Blood Dragon's
case, a wacky futuristic retro world reminiscent of an 80's sci-fi action movie. All games included a cast of deliciously insane characters to both assist and torment the player.Far Cry Wild Expeditions
will be available in Europe for the Xbox 360 on February 14th. The price has so far been unconfirmed.
