Ubisoft’s “Far Cry 4” launched for the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on Tuesday, and the action-adventure shooter is already experiencing a number of gameplay issues, including log-in errors, connectivity problems and bugs with player-versus-player matches.
The developer addressed the problems in a blog post on Wednesday, assuring players it was working on a number of remedies for in-game bugs. Ubisoft also told users it was still investigating issues and reminded “Far Cry 4” fans its Day One patch is still available.
“If you are experiencing issues, we recommend double-checking that you've got the Day 1 Patch installed,” Ubisoft said.
The Quebec, Canada-based developer told gamers it was working on the following issues:
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. 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.
