Ubisoft Issues Fixes for PS3 and PC Versions of Far Cry 4; PS3 Owners Download New Copy, PC Patch Coming Soon

on November 21, 2014 7:27 AM

While Far Cry 4 (so far) seems to have not had the widespread issues plagued by other releases of late like Halo: The Master Chief Collection or Assassin’s Creed Unity, users for the game have still reported some issues from the recently-released open world shooter, particularly on the PS3 and PC versions of the game.

Following claims of data corruption on the PS3 version and a black screen issue on the PC, Ubisoft has issued fixes for both versions of the game, while the PS3 fix isn’t exactly desirable and the PC is not available just yet.

In new posts on Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4 Live Updates blog, the company addressed both of these issues by detailing that for the PS3 version of the game, users must delete all of their previous Far Cry 4 files from their console (including save files), and then re-download a fresh copy of the game to correct the issues of data corruption and play with the correct version of the game.

For the PC version’s issues with black screen-ing (apparently when external USB devices are present), Ubisoft has detailed that a patch for this issue will be released at some point either today or “in the following days,” so while a fix isn’t available just yet, it will be here in the near future and easier than the PS3 solution.

Far Cry 4 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
