Ubisoft today anncounced a Far Cry 4 Complete Edition that coming this June.
So, there's an incomplete edition?
Yes, when the game was released... it's always like that with Ubisoft and Capcom.
Games are rarely released as 'complete' these days, which is why I and many others have stopped buying them day 1 and for full price, and instead waiting for releases like this. Been looking forward to playing Far Cry 4. Really loved FC3. Now that they're releasing a Complete Edition, I'll wait for it to hit the <30€ price, and I'll pick it up. I don't buy 'incomplete' games. I won't support DLC-milking. Vote with your wallet.
@Yi-Long. Voting would indicate that there is a chance for things to go back the other way, which they never will.
Good i still havent purchased Farcry 4. Ill be buying the complete edition on a Steam or Greenmangaming discount lol. Exactly what these publishers deserve.
Not only ubisoft and capcom Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY edition Batman Arkham City GOTY edition Batman Arkham origins Complete edition Shadow of Mordor Tomb Raider GOTY edition for PC, PS3, XB360 The Last of US GOTY edition Red Dead Redemption GOTY edition Dishonored GOTY edition Fallout 3 GOTY edition Bioshock Infinite Complete edition . . . GOTY edition and Complete edition are the same thing The Game + Full DLC pack @Yi-Long I think FC4 is complete game without the DLCs I didn't play any of its DLCs but from what I saw on the Internet it looks like the DLCs are the worst part of the game
"Far Cry 4 Complete Edition announced" -Of course, but its not just them, its almost the whole industry including Microsoft and Sony doing the same thing= DLC.
It's pretty stupid to buy DLC or season passes for games. I never bought DLC in the past, probably never will in the future. Developers intentionally take out chunks of the game, and sell it for extra €€€. Shame on them...
Yeah, they are called first releases. When you buy a new game on day one it isn't finished/complete which is why you need to instantly run to the internet to download the 3 gig "day one patch". Any game with a "day one patch" was not released complete as for the patch to be ready day one they had to start working on it and test/debug the patch even before the game went gold. Then there are the "season passes" which have content not finished in time ripped from the main broken game they rushed out sooner than they should have. I see DriveClub as one of these. The game was garbage on day one and didn't even have the weather effects. They have been finishing it for months. It isn't bad now but even if you bought the disc it is basically a digital download game. Same for AC Unity among others.
Games rarely ever release complete nowadays. Nothing new to see here folks. Come back in 5-10 years when you see episodic games released at 60 a piece and each lasting 90 minutes tops...
Getting games on launch this gen is becoming pointless. Complete editions now are getting released less than a year after the original ones.
If they wait too long with releasing a complete edition, nobody cares any more. And if they make you wait 2 years for a 'GOTY' edition, or a 'Complete' edition, then those people are clearly patient enough to also wait 3-4 months longer in order to get that GOTY/Complete edition half price somewhere. Now, if Ubisoft had just said: Here's Far Cry 4, and all DLC that comes afterwards, will be made available free, then I would have bought it day 1 for full price, and they would have made 60€ from me. Or, to hit a middle-ground, they could come up with a new strategy for DLC, as in it's 'premium' content when it first comes out, so those who are really eager to play it will pay for the DLC, but as a rule, after 6 months, the DLC will become free for everyone who owns/buys the game. That way, you could still get day 1 sales from gamers like me, cause I know in the end I'll still have a complete game for 50-60 euro, cause I'll wait for the DLC to become free.... while they can still make money from temporary 'premium' DLC, from those gamers who don't have a problem with aying for DLC and want it when it comes out.
I like to think of it as buying a new car, you don't get all the extra/best features for free, you have to pay for them. I find it odd that gamers think they deserve DLC for free as it they are entitled to it. What you get when a game is released is what they decided to sell to you, it's their business and it's their way. I know I'll get hate for this and I'm sorry to say, but I think most gamers are just delusional.
Gaming will die when that happens.
So what the gamers played last year was incomplete? I would use "Remaster" instead.
They aren't remastering anything though, simply bundling in DLC that they released.
Does this come with all the DLC??If so I may bite.Man it pays off waiting.
This Gen patience is key.
That was also the case last-gen. Fallout 3 GOTY I picked up for 12 euro, Forza 3 Ultimate Edition for 8 euro, Assassin's Creed 2 GOTY for 11-12 euro, etc etc etc. Be a little bit patient, and in most cases you can reap the benefits later.
But that's so, sooooo hard!
not if you have a huge backlog of games. thank you PS+ *cries in the corner in shame of my backlogs
*goes mad with frustration at too many games, not enough time* I'm only at 37% completion on GTA V PC, but now new Wolfenstein stand alone DLC is out and Witcher 3 in a few weeks!!!!! RAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHHH *rage face*
Glad I held off on getting this the first time around.
This is one of the main reason why I don't buy games on it's initial release. And instead wait for complete edition or GOTY editions like this. Now I'd say that I can buy it on Ps4 now.
I think all developers should offer all the DLC at a cheap price for those that already own the game.
I still didn't play it, propably i will buy that version.
Hmmm...might pick this up.the FPS games are godawful this year so far
Poor marketing decision, why didn't they just follow FC3's pattern of calling the +DLC version 'Ultimate Edition'? As others mention, 'complete' suggests that the original is incomplete. On another note, I'm sick of this as a practice for those that support the developer on release and end up paying through the nose for plus-priced DLC, surely the loyal buyers should be offered a cumulative discount for buying add-ons etc.? Boning over the buyer as much as possible seems to be the name of the game with Ubisoft. And Jesus Christ, I know FC 4 is an exception, but those b*stards at Ubi should be GIVING away downloadable content to make up for their continuously shoddy, broken game releases that take about 3 months worth of updates to render playable. What a feckless company.
Cant say about the DLC but loved the game - buy it.
patience is a virtue.
Only just finishing my free copy of Far Cry 3 (courtesy of Ps+)
just platinum far cry 4 yesterday. definitely a huge copy and paste from farcry3 imo. Good game nonethless i just can't believe how bad the online is. The direction they took it where your force to use a bow for half the matches was really dumb. Ironically the multilayer is where i wish it was more of a copy and paste from the third. Then improved on cause you can tell its just tacked on.
Yeah, I personally prefer FC3 in almost every aspect over FC4 minus the graphics.
About 20 hours in and feel the same way. I have the plat for FC3.
Best thing to do is wait for a complete edition or a extend version like disgaea and blazblu with all dlc and new game elements. Only rich people can do day one.
Yeah it looks like I will be waiting for most games to release complete editions. Though, I've been doing this for a while now.
I found this game very boring and uninstalled it before I even exposed all the map. I think that's because I obsessed of FC3 with 100% completion. FC4 is a re-skin basically. To me anyway. lol @ the very first comment!!! Of course there's an incomplete version. it's Ubisoft.
yeah as i said earlier i plated it and i had to grind though the story cause it wasn't as interesting, I agree.
Ah! Yes! After all the delays Farcry 4 is going to release to my world soon!
& people say games come complete these days lol.. smh look at all these types of games re releasing
