Ubisoft Montreal’s “Far Cry 4” launched for the PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Tuesday, and those playing the first-person shooter are experiencing a number of issues connecting to servers, engaging in player vs player matches and using the game on a single platform.
Those attempting to play “Far Cry 4” on Sony’s PlayStation 3 are encountering issues with being unable to play the game, a problem that Ubisoft says may have to do with previous save data from predecessor “Far Cry 3.” Other users are being disconnected after finding other players online. Ubisoft hasn’t provided any solutions with gameplay errors.

“Far Cry 4” is the follow-up to 2012’s “Far Cry 3” and follows protagonist Ajay Ghale, a Nepali native who returns to the fictional region of Kyrat to scatter his deceased mother’s ashes. During this mission, Ghale encounters sociopathic ruler Pagan Min, Kyrat’s leader, whose twisted methods of leadership have an entire country trembling in terror.
“This guy is cool, he’s scary, he’s fun, because he’s kind of wacko, but he’s got this weird relationship with the main character as well, he’s kind of friendly toward him, but you don’t understand why,” Raphael Parent, “Far Cry 4’s” lead programmer, told us during an early game demo in August. Parent is a 15-year veteran of Ubisoft Montreal, the Canadian subsidiary of French developer Ubisoft. “There’s some cool textures in there the writers played around with and it’s really interesting to get to know the character throughout the game.”
Min is one of the most dynamic and charismatic video game villains we’ve seen in a long time-- within five minutes of the game’s opening, viewers watch Min murder an accomplice -- while taking a selfie.
