Ubisoft has listened to the complaints of people saying they are annoyed by the intrusive UI/HUD and the prompts that tell then what to do. There’s no way to disable it, however, on the PC version you can do that with the help of mods and what not.
However, console users couldn’t do the same but Ubisoft has come to their defence and will release a new patch soon that enables them to hide the HUD and prompts.
They released the following statement to Kotaku:
“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 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…”
The PC version can be tweaked to remove the cluttering user interface, and if you are playing on the PC you can do this now without waiting for Ubisoft to release the patch.
