Massive Entertainment's co-operative multiplayer component for Far Cry 3 will be getting some free downloadable content on the PlayStation 3 this week.

Taking place immediately after the conclusion of the game's co-op segment, "High Tides" includes two chapters that will tell the epilogue to the brief narrative. Avid listeners of the PlayStation Blogcast were the first to learn the release date, but now everyone can look forward to the free missions arriving Jan. 15th.

According to Massive, the add-on will feature, "tougher fights, bigger competitions," and will focus on the last moments of the misfit characters that starred in the co-op campaign. There's no word on if or when the free maps will arrive on the Xbox 360 or PC, but it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility to see this content arrive on those systems in the next few months.
