Far Cry Primal

Far Cry Primal launched with a significantly less amount of bugs, glitches, and errors than other high profile Ubisoft game launches have in the past few years, but that isn’t stopping Ubisoft from issuing a massive ass patch for the game anyway. Maybe it’s just a habit for them now.

In all seriousness, this patch is appreciated. It adds some nice UI options, and fixes a lot of minor, yet niggling, issues that the game has had. The full list of changes follows:

    • Fixed some displaying issues with the HUD and the World Map
    • Fixed an issue where a fail prompt does not appear under specific conditions

    • Fixed a sound issue with burning fire during the playgo
    • Added a missing SFX during a specific Quick Time Event attack
    • Added a missing Audio line during a cinematic
  • Localization/Text
    • Fixed issues when subtitles go past menu borders in some languages
    • Fixed an issue where collectibles text can be overlapped by an event notification
    • Added missing subtitles when skipping a cinematic
    • Fixed incorrect messages appearing on screen after specific actions

The patch weighs in at 570MB on the Xbox One, and 577MB on the PS4- so as patches this generation go, it’s actually quite small, especially for the amount of work that it pulls in.

Far Cry Primal is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
