Is the original Far Cry they're throwing in the 64-bit version, or rather, the version with the 64-bit patch?

The 64-bit version is a patch, not a separate SKU.
:) So perhaps it's a setting, like in HL2.

Hi, I'm from Australia, I like to buy games on Steam.

Ubisoft doesn't seem to listen.

Not available in Europe, as usual. And if it were available it would be $69.95 + VAT. I used to love Steam...

Doesn't everyone already have like 12 copies of far cry laying around, along with every other ubisoft game?

They practically give you their entire library of games if you buy a cheap video card with a software bundle.

If you played it in 2012 then I understand.

Hence why I said "version with the 64-bit patch."

I sort of doubt it because there was only one 64-bit patch. IIRC, you had to install the 1.3 patch, then update to 64-bit. It was not compatible with the final Far Cry patch, which was 1.4. I would think the version on Steam is 1.4. The one thing that was nice about the x64 version was that it removed the CD check. Obviously that's not an issue with Steam. ;)

I preordered. I was going to by FC2 anyway, but having one more game on Steam (FC1) is awesome. And its funny just how fast modern hardware runs FC1. I've been trying to dig up some texture mods for it, but nothing so far.

I have 4 copies of far cry, 1 full price retail, 1 graphics card bundle, 1 compilation and 1 99p bargain bin copy

Edit: No I have 5, I don't know where this one came from.

Is this game worth 50$? After looking at the pics it seems like a lot of motion blur. Im debating on whether to purchase it. I never played FC1, my video card couldnt handle the graphics at that time.

I ordered through Steam even though I already had FarCry. Now I have Farcry on Steam so I un-installed the other one and can now give the disk to someone if I want. Looking forward to Farcry 2.

I went ahead and preordered aswell. Gave my original FarCry away and would prefer having it on Steam anyway. Game better be good...

Not anymore.

Good deal, though I already bought FC on Steam.
