Far Cry 3's recently announced co-op DLC, High Tides, will be free for PS3 users.
In an effort to learn whether the PS3-exclusive DLC would be eventually offered on the Xbox 360 and/or PC, a Ubisoft PR member informed us it would be free for PS3 owners. Unfortunately, he didn't comment on the Xbox 360 or PC platforms, simply reiterating "High Tides DLC will be exclusive to PS3."
High Tides, which was formally announced yesterday, adds two entirely new co-op chapters: Jailbreak and Redemption. They take place where the original six missions left off and offer new missions, tougher fights, bigger competitions, and "explosive moments unlike anything you've ever seen before."
Far Cry 3 High Tides will release in January 2013. A formal date has not yet been announced.
Far Cry 3, which was officially released yesterday, has received glowing reviews. It scored an impressive 9.5/10 here on GameZone. For PS3 users, free DLC is icing on the cake.
