Most Far Cry 4 players are having a "smooth experience" with Ubisoft's recently released open-world game, but the title's launch hasn't gone swimmingly for everyone, the publisher says in a post on its website.
A launch day patch for Far Cry 4 released yesterday fixes a number of gameplay, performance, and connectivity problems, but more issues with the game have been brought to Ubisoft's attention. Courtesy of Ubisoft, these are listed below.
1. PC Crashes: Some players have been reporting problems loading the game that result in a crash that manifests as a black screen. We have been able to reproduce this internally. While we are just starting to investigate this, our initial findings suggest that this may be the result of the presence of certain peripherals that are causing conflicts.
2. PlayStation 3 Corruption: We have seen reports from PS3 players that they are receiving a message reading "Game Data is corrupt. Please delete FC3 game data." While the message suggests this would be limited to players who had also played Far Cry 3 on the same console, we are receiving similar reports from players who have not played FC3. If you are submitting reports about this issue, please clarify if you've played Far Cry 3 or Blood Dragon on the same console.
3. Preorder Code Redemption: Players who preordered the game were told that they would receive an email with a redemption code for the "Blood Ruby" bonus mission in advance of the game's release. Some players have reported that they did not yet receive this email, and some players have reported that they did receive the email but it was missing a valid code.
Ubisoft advises that anyone encountering other issues should submit a ticket on the publisher's support site. In addition, the company says the launch-day patch should have been applied automatically, so if you're still encountering problems, you should double-check to make sure it's installed.
