Ubisoft's ‘Far Cry 3’ is set for a brand new patch that will deal with any kind of annoyance caused by the game’s heads-up display (HUD). Now, per reports, Ubisoft has announced that it will be releasing a patch for the game to fix the issue.

‘Far Cry 3’ is easily one of the gorgeous, brilliant open-world adventure title, but its gripping visuals and exotic animals have been reported to be thwarted by an blatant UI that obstructs the interest by flooding users with objectives and tips.

This means that the main issue comes in the form of disturbing elements in the HUD that blocks out the view. These elements are either mission objectives that are ever present on the screen or tutorial messages that keep popping up from time to time.

The report comes directly from Kotaku who were sent a statement by Ubisoft on the current problem faced by gamers while they play the brand new ‘Far Cry’ title.

“Based on feedback from both press and fans, the Far Cry 3 production team is working on a patch that will allow you to toggle most HUD/UI elements based on player preference. The patch will also avoid issues encountered in the .dll hack that might create a mission walkthrough break (missing QTE prompts, critical information, etc;),” the statement says. “The team is excited about how the Far Cry 3 community and fans of the game are enjoying themselves, and finding new ways to experience the Rook Islands. More news will be coming on the patch shortly…”

While the company has said that the patch is in the works, it is yet to provide any estimated date for the release. When asked about more details by Jeffrey Matulef of Eurogamer, the company said: "The team is working hard on the patch, but we don't have a date yet as to when it will be available, though it will be soon."

This is the most recent development in the game’s HUD problem after Kotaku published a piece recently detailing a relatively simple hack to remove Far Cry 3′s in-game HUD.

“I've been playing the game with no HUD for the past day to see how it works, since I didn't want to just recommend doing this if it messes up the game. Fortunately, this tweak works perfectly, causes no stability problems, and really does make Far Cry 3 feel different,” Kirk Hamilton of Kotaku added.
