Far Cry 3 gets day one patch, launch trailer released

Wednesday, 28th November 2012 18:52 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

The release of Far Cry 3 is looming and in continuous support of the title, which has received its fair share of good reviews, Ubisoft has released a launch trailer for the open-world actioner along with news the game will require a critical, day one patch.

The patch, according to Gamers Hell, will contain single-player fixes as well as “overall multiplayer and single-player stability and performance; health regeneration option no longer has inverted functionality; and fixes the “Weapon Cache” missions: Mission Zone and Mission Marker no longer stays on mini-map and on screen after mission completion.”

The link even has a download mirror for the patch for PC users, and the full patch notes can be found on the game’s official website.

Meanwhile, as far as the trailer is concerned, Ubisoft has provided a table of contents, so to speak, for better viewer indexing:

  1. Vacation In Paradise – 0:07
  2. The North Island Factions – 0:49
  3. The South Island Mercenaries – 1:34

    the game will require a critical, day one patch….. in other words broken unfinished game on disc!… i expected at least single player work as it should but it don’t. i ain’t buying this now.. i will use my money on other games and ubisoft can put their unfinished crap game where the sun don’t shine.

    I can think of several other games that need day one patches. It is the way of the new world man.

    @2 Maybe you should read the changelog first before saying its unfinished ?
    Or what you can’t download 300 mb ?

    @5: I’m jumping on Far Cry 3 today, Hitman was a big disappointment for me, personally. Guess I do need a blend of action and stealth like Human Revolution. The story hasn’t captivated me yet either.
