Ubisoft to address Far Cry 4 post-launch issues
A number of Far Cry 4 players are experiencing issues with the title.
In a post on their website, Ubisoft said: “While most players are reporting a smooth experience, we have received reports of a few issues we’re investigating that we want to tell you about. First, just a reminder though: as we noted inour post from last night, our “Day 1 Patch” is available that addresses a number of gameplay, performance, and connectivity problems.
“While this patch should have been applied transparently for most people, some of you—particularly those of you playing offline—may not have had the patch installed. If you are experiencing issues, we recommend double-checking that you’ve got the Day 1 Patch installed.”
The main problems, as outlined by Ubisoft, are as follows:
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.
Pre-Order Code Redemption:Players who pre-ordered 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.
Far Cry 4 launched on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Tuesday, November 18th, 2014.
