A group of Far Cry 4 owners have inadvertently revealed they have pirated the game by discussing one of its glitches online.
Ubisoft has found a way to ensure that certain Far Cry 4 torrents contain an error which remove's the game's field-of-view controls. Without those controls, which are available on legitimately purchased versions, the picture can become blurred and distorted.
Now, after numerous players have publicised their grievances with this bug, a developer at Ubisoft has revealed the true reason for the problem.
Alex Hutchinson, a creative director at Ubisoft Montreal, wrote on Twitter: "PC players! If you're online complaining about the lack of FOV control ... You pirated the game."
