PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 users have received their second Far Cry 4 update, which aims to fix some known bugs within the game. On the official Ubisoft website, the company announced that the patch was released sooner than expected, saying:

This is earlier than we anticipated and we’re pleased to be able to offer a number of fixes that should remedy many of the problems faced by our users since launch. As we go into the weekend, we hope to provide a smoother experience for our fans.

While there is no word yet about any possible patch for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Far Cry 4, reports indicate that a fix for the PC port is expected sometime this week. The Windows patch will hopefully rectify a bug in the game which crashes to a black screen whenever an external USB device is detected. You can keep a watchful eye on any future patches by visiting the publishing team’s Live Update page.

According to Ubisoft, the PlayStation patch has the following fixes:

  • Fixed some random crashes on all game modes
  • Fixed host migration edge random & case issues
  • Fixed custom match stability issues
  • Fixed join-in-progress edge case issues
  • Fixed progression page issues in Story missions
  • Fixed functionality issues in the shop menu
  • Fixed several localization issues (cut-off text, subtitles)
  • Fixed various low repro walkthrough breaks
  • Fixed host migration random issues specific to coop
  • Fixed minor gameplay functionality issues
  • Fixed aiming issues with the machine gun weapon
  • Fixed minor and low repro QTE issue with specific animals
  • Fixed Map Browser issues
  • Fixed occlusion and navmesh issues
  • Fixed some missing audio in radio calls
  • PS4 only: Coop will no longer cause users to hang on the main menu and with the second player unable to progress to the lobby

Far Cry 4 was released on November 18, 2014 in North America, Europe and Australia and received mostly positive reviews. Japan will see the game hit shelves on January 22nd, 2015.
