Far Cry 2 Content Falls Under "Deal of the Week" Promo
Written By
View author's profile

Up on the "Deal of the Week" pedestal this week is Far Cry 2's very own Fortunes Pack, which is available now for 240 Microsoft Points.

The Fortunes Pack includes 3 new weapons; including a silenced shotgun and a crossbow, two new vehicles and four multiplayer maps; full details and screenshots of which can be found here.

The 240 price tag is a long way off its usual 560 point price tag and may very well tempt the odd one or two back into the title, if only for a while. Remember though, gold members only.

Add Far Cry 2's Fortunes Pack to your download queue here.

They should change the description from "Gold Members only - save 50%" to "Gold members - Only save 50%".

It should be an up to 50% off deal to all gold members on all content permanent. Like games that have been on live for ages. serious price cuts.

#4 - lol

50% ain't bad... but as #5 suggests, we need a greater quantity of offers. I can't really see it happening, but at the same time I can't see what MS hope to achieve by offering us what are (pretty much) lame deals most weeks. I wonder how many people go for these 'deals'?

It's a nice deal and the online is solid, but I'm not sure...it's tempting but I ain't played it in a while.

Oh, and thanks 'OblivionGod', yet another thread in which the 'almighty' CoD is brought up to derail it with.

Looks like the Deals of the Week have gone back to being weak again like they were when MS first started them. I still have this game, but as mentioned above, the multiplayer had serious issues - even finding a game takes forever because the host as full control over the matches. The lack of achievements with these maps also means that nobody will buy this and nobody will be playing them, making this deal completely worthless.

It was a great game in my opinion. I'm just happy the multiplayer community is still going strong, though even without it, the single player game is well worth it.

I bought the DLC a few months ago. It's barely worth 240 as is. Your not missing much if you don't DL it. The ATV's don't "feel" like ATV's, they have the same physics of a 2 ton truck.

this is all about marketing and supply & demand

not many people have bought this dlc so the price is lowered to increase sales

whereas people buy call of duty dlc so no price cut is needed in order to keep bringing in money

Farcry is still going and it is a good game unless you have the pc version apparently!!

I play this game alot and spend alot of time in the editor but what they have done with this dlc is just stupid you cant use the vehicles in the editor. you can only use all the stuff in this pack on the new maps that come with it.

Shame on ubi to actually bring out dlc containing maps when they knew all along that most of the community make their own maps (and some alot better than ubi's)

so long story short i love farcry but the dlc can sit and swivel

Far Cry 2 is a very boring and dull game.

This DLC isn't worth the current price tag, there are more pressing matters to deal with - like the various bugs and glitches in the game. Sort it out Ubisoft.

Why does everyone think DLC should have achievements? Seriously, get a life! And on point, the single player was great, online was ok. The real reason to get this is the weapons, the crossbow is badass, as is the Shotgun.

Your wrong as well, it was 400 MS points.
I went on the download queue thingy after Major Nelson announced it and it was still set as 400, plus i was considering getting it at one point.
I decided i didn't like the game though, as a matter of fact i get the same feeling as [51].
To think i was going to get this over Fallout... Thank god for Games offer of selling Fallout for £20 :) Thats a deal of the week, especially when it had only been out for a month:P

"Deal of the WEAK", I'll say.

Well, I guess they pretty much do a garage sale with the DLC. It's usually leftovers.

Once in a while they have good deals, like that Ikaruga deal a couple of weeks ago. I guess full arcade games are more worthy to be a Deal of the Week.

If there were achievements somehow included in this package, I would have got it.

I got this game for a whopping $9.98 red stickered at Target a long time ago but never really played it but my brother has. I would like to finish the COD: WAW campaign before starting this, so if the DLC won't really make the single player experience any different, then forget it.

Why is it that every time a game sucks in someone's opinion, they have to comment and bash it?

It's a great game. Multiplayer map building is fun. The Silent Shotgun might make me feel like I'm playing Hitman again.

@48 as someone else nicely posted, you are wrong, it may have originally been released at 800 MSP, but the current price for silver members and the price last week for all members (and therefore the price the Deal of the Week has dropped it from) is 400 MSP, just log out on xbox.com or view Major Nelson's post about it to verify, 40% price drop.
