Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2 DLC Price Announced

Remember when we told you about the upcoming Far Cry 2 DLC last week? You know, the Fortune Pack ... Well today, Ubisoft told Eurogamer that the upcoming DLC would weigh in at a hefty 800 points.

Call me pessimistic, tight, stingy or all of the above; but isn't that a wee bit steep for 3 new guns, 2 new vehicles and 4 new maps ... Especially when Far Cry 2 has one of the best built in map editors in any game to date.

Crazy. I know that when I'm faced with the choice of buying the Far Cry 2 DLC or Street Fighter II HD, it'll be a very easy choice.

Don't these people know they need to add 1 achievement for 20 points to get us to pay absurd prices for DLC? LOL.

Hopefully it'll be free once it's honeymoon is over, much like some of Ubisoft's other content for other titles.

No achievements, no download. (I can copy word for wrod too).

I would like it, but I think its a bit steep for what it is. Might get the Fable2 content instead which is the same price.

Bungie charged 800 for 3 new maps. That's what I call cheap.

Ubi's DLC for other games wasn't free. The Red and Black packs for Rainbow Six Vegas both cost money, but were made free later on. So it'll probably be free later on (just not necessarily).

@9 Yeah, I got both those packs for free because I waited a while and picked them up. Hopefully this will be the same.

OUCH! Way too much for all of it, but mainly add-on maps for a game that has an online life expectancy of about a month. Like the first game, nobody is going to be playing this in a few weeks except boosters.

Meh, I had higher hopes for this FPS - so far, it is uninspiring and I barely have played it. The online multiplayer is fun, but I won't purchase the DLC, I don't play it near enough to justify spending $10.

@20 I'm a real gamer and i still like achievements, just because you don't doesn't mean you have to rip on them. And it cracks me up that people are calling COD World At War COD5 it's not it's COD World At War, COD5 is due out next year, please know what the hell you are talking about before you open your mouth PLEASE!!!!!

"Meh, I had higher hopes for this FPS - so far, it is uninspiring and I barely have played it."

It's just that there's no real point. A few core missions and a lot of Assassin's Creed type repetition/traveling inbetween. I love the visuals, but the gameplay is trying to hard to be a merc simulator. Especially with having to drive to an armory because the cases you spend so many diamonds on turn out to be worthless in the long run.

Call me a cynic but couldn't these have been put in before release. The game has only been out for 1 month and after paying £40 for the game this is a kick in the bollocks. I will not be buying it>

Recession in the US and they expect us to buy that for 800 points ($10)! Nonsense, I'll make my own badass maps. What weapons and vehicles are included? There already are many guns in the game, so I'll be able to get buy without the DLC.

I bought this where in the hell do I go to get the new stuff? Uh? I went to the safe houses and such..but I have no clue where else to go. Anyone mind helping? And dude...THIS GAME ROCKS! Personal opinion, Gears of War 2 was pretty bad for glitching. So if you wanna spit on glitches, spit on Gears and shut up already Gili. But yeah. I bought this with my extra MSPS...but where do I go?

To Comment #8, are you stupid? Bungie charge 800MSP for 3 maps? Twice.

Far Cry 2 charges 800MSP for 3 new weapons, 2 new vehicles and 4 new maps.

The last one STILL beats the 3 maps Halo 3 offer!

It's worth your buck, but nobody has purchased them so it's hardly fun online.

the new vehicles, weapons and maps are pretty cool i think, but 800 points is a little bit much for that...
