Far Cry 4 Summary
Not a far cry from Far Cry 3.
Far Cry 4 is set to get its first piece of Season Pass content in January, and Ubisoft has detailed exactly what players can expect. Namely the introduction of permadeath in the newsolo and co-op mission.
It's based around a level from the core game's solo campaign, but this time Ajay can team up with his (annoying) co-op buddy Hurk to scavenge weapons and ammo, and complete a series of challenges in a vaguely roguelike structure in order to escape.
More bug and glitch smashing has arrived with PC patch 1.5.0 for Far Cry 4, as the latest update is now available. It targets "various" graphics and control issues, with Nvidia preset settings removed.
Streaming should also have less of an impact on performance, and a 21:9 ratio is now supported. According to some mutterings on, stuttering and shadow woes haven't been fixed.
The next PC patch for Far Cry 4 is in the works atbringing the shooter to version 1.4.0. This update looks to fix rather annoying black screens on game launch, and a grey screen during a mission.
Ubisoft are "still in the process of preparing" the PC patch and will give a "firm date for making it available." While not comforting to those who need this patch, at least it isn't a mess quite like Unity.
Far Cry 4's creative lead Alex Hutchinson has had his personal game pitch greenlit by Ubisoft, and will head a team including former Assassin's Creed staff on a new project.
No clues as to what that project might involve just yet, but it sounds like a step away from developing for mega-budget franchises.
