    This popular first-person shooter game developed by Crytek is now available for free with a few in-game advertisements. It is unclear if the free version contains the sandbox editor but it is definitely worth a try.

    The game can be downloaded here.

    Yes, this game contains a few in-game advertisements but should still be a great experience for gamers who have not tried FarCry yet :)

    Take note EA, not some old classic that everyone has played to death for over a decade! :roll:

    when they say in-game ad, do they mean bf 2142 style? because farcry doesn't click with me. unless they put manufacturer's names on the weapons, or put ads in the load screens, i don't understand it.

    GamersHell site says: "You will need an Ubi.com account and you must live in the U.S. to play the game"
    It it really fucked up that hard?

    |EDIT| Ah, apparently stating to live in the US when registering to Ubi.com is enough..

    I don't mind in-game ads. Hell I think BF2142 is better with them :)

    Interesting.
    They can't make a lot of money selling the game anymore at it's lowered price, so they install advertisements in the game and resell it.
    Now, not only will they be making more money per game than if they sold the game, but more people will have it, and they will make even more money.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if in the future all games are FREE, but are littered with advertisements?

    Yep, making the game free and having some ads was a smart move. Another reason why I think they made FarCry free was to have people who have not played it yet play it and get interested in FarCry 2.

    Which is a damn good strategy, they've made a lot off of Far Cry and are showing they don't need the profits from the original anymore, because they're not worried about quailty of worksmanship or fanbase! That's awesome! I will be downloading Far Cry for sure!

    That would be a good theory, but you forget that Crytek isn't making Far Cry 2.
