Do you want to save this very good boy? Of course you do. But if you’d like to do it as cheaply as possible, then here are the best deals around the country for Far Cry 5.

Update 29/3: The prices below have been updated post-launch, after several increases from retailers at home and abroad.

Far Cry 5 isn’t officially available until tomorrow morning, or tomorrow afternoon if your code unlocks on Steam. Patching will be a lot faster if you buy at retail, although those picking up PC copies should prepare for the possibility that you might be buying a code regardless.

Either way, here’s the best deals at the moment.

Amazon Australia: $69.95 (PC, PS4, XBO)

Was around $60 before launch, but it’s gone up to $69.95 now the game’s out.

eBay: $75 (PS4)

Was a better deal before launch, but it’s gone up to the less enticing $75 since.

Big W: $79 (PS4, XBO)

Big Dubb not competing real hard on prices here. I haven’t seen the latest catalogue to see if they’ll do a special day one deal yet – and we’ll keep you posted if they do – but for now, this is basically par for the course. Not awful, but you can do better.

Mighty Ape: $69 (PC, PS4, XBO)

Still $69 post-release, and a good option if it’s a local store.

JB Hi-Fi: $79 (PC, PS4, XBO)

Was $69 on the day, but that price has since bumped up.

The Gamesmen: $78 (PS4, XBO), $89.95 (PC)

Again, par for the course (unless you’re on PC).

OzGameShop: $69.99 (PS4, XBO)

Reasonable enough price, but not good enough to justify the lengthy delay in shipping when local outlets (ignoring Amazon Australia) offer the same deal.

Target: $69 (PS4/XBO)

Target Australia confirmed that they would be stocking Far Cry 5, but they couldn’t confirm the price until launch day. Pity.

Update: The price is confirmed at $69, thanks to the latest catalogue.

EB Games: $99.95 (PC, PS4, XBO)

Otherwise known as the “pricematch from somewhere else”. Like somewhere on this list!

Harvey Norman: $69 (PC, PS4, XBO)

Pretty reasonable price if you pre-order. Alternatively, don’t pre-order, and get the game for $69 anyway via a retailer that won’t hike the price afterwards.

Green Man Gaming: $69.89 (PC)

Not bad, but not great. At those prices, you might as well buy local.

Fanatical: $68.98 (PC)

Slightly better than GMG, but not by much. Fanatical has a 10% offer going right now if you use the SPRING10 code at checkout, but that code doesn’t apply to pre-orders, so you might have to wait until post-launch to get a better deal.

Steam: $86.67 (PC)

#nope.


So that’s the best prices you can get for Far Cry 5 right now. Target might come in under the radar, as they have in the past, although I’m betting they’ll probably land on $68 or $69.
