PC crashes, PS3 data corruption and pre-order redeem code issues are all under investigation
This follows a day one patch that accompanied the game on release this week to resolve some issues that were already known about. New problems have since arisen which Ubisoft ensures are being worked on.
To keep abreast of the known problems you can head to Ubisoft's live updates page. We have included below the concerns that Ubisoft are currently prioritising.
- 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.
- 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.
A tweet from Ubisoft Montreal’s Alex Hutchinson also delivers a message to those on PC unable to find Far Cry 4’s field of view control.
PC players! If you're online complaining about the lack of FOV control ... You pirated the game.— Alex Hutchinson (@BangBangClick) November 18, 2014
