Ubisoft’s latest open world role-playing first-person shooter ‘Far Cry 3’ has garnered critical acclaim since its official arrival. Now there’s some good news for PC gamers as per reports, the company has released a host of fixes for PC gamers who have been facing a lot of technical glitches in the game’s PC version.

Follow us

The newly released ‘Far Cry 3’ patch for the PC version of the game is expected to improve stability, team balancing, and matchmaking, and fix issues where players fall through the world and the map editor unfortunately crashes at launch. There are also fixes to the Ubisoft server sync issue, alongside a fix employed for leaderboards.

Check the list of fixes below.

Multiplayer fixes for the patch- PVP

  • Fixed certain issues with user created maps when more than 8 players were playing them.
  • Improved matchmaking for both Multiplayer and Co-op modes.
  • Improved team balancing when playing in a party.
  • Fixed issues with Live balancing patch system.

Single Player fixes for the patch

  • Fixed issue where players fall through the world when not connected to the Ubisoft servers.
  • Fixed the “View Leaderboard” and “Start Trial” buttons in the World Map.
  • Improved stability when quitting to desktop.
  • Fixed issue with leaderboards.

Map Editor: Fix for the Map Editor crash at launch when the PC user contains language-specific characters.

This is a major development to the game after it was reported that Ubisoft had confirmed that the company had fixed every other issue that had been making the game’s PC gameplay next to impossible.

This patch was released after many PC gamers complained that they weren’t being able to play the game’s single-player version due to Uplay, which requires the Internet to authenticate the game. This problem persisted even after Ubisoft had revealed earlier that 'Far Cry 3' won’t have any DRM.

“Today is my day off, hooray! And so far I’ve been treated to a horrible, horrible time, and all at the hands of the technical mess that is Uplay and idiotic mechanical choices. And right now? Ubisoft’s servers are down. On launch day. You can still play in offline mode, but ho boy, this isn’t a good start," Rock Paper Shotgun's John Walker previously wrote.

Walker also mentioned that the only way to get around this problem is to set Uplay to offline mode.
