Ubisoft Prioritizes Far Cry 4 Issues As Players Report Data Corruption And Crashing


Despite releasing a day-one patch to correct several of the known issues, Far Cry 4 players are still reporting numerous problems across the PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the game.

In response, Ubisoft has set up a live blog detailing the progress of each update — much like it did with Assassin’s Creed: Unity, in fact — and those affected by the bugs have been advised to consult the support page. Currently, there are three main issues that the studio is investigating, and you can find a detailed round-up of them below.

PC crashes: Some players have been reporting problems loading the game that result in a crash that manifests as a black screen. We have been able to reproduce this internally. While we are just starting to investigate this, our initial findings suggest that this may be the result of the presence of certain peripherals that are causing conflicts.

PS3 corruption: We have seen reports from PS3 players that they are receiving a message reading “Game Data is corrupt. Please delete FC3 game data”. While the message suggests this would be limited to players who had also played Far Cry 3 on the same console, we are receiving similar reports from players who have not played FC3. If you are submitting reports about this issue, please clarify if you’ve played Far Cry 3 or Blood Dragon on the same console.

Pre-order code redemption: Players who pre-ordered the game were told that they would receive an email with a redemption code for the “Blood Ruby” bonus mission in advance of the game’s release. Some players have reported that they did not yet receive this email, and some players have reported that they did receive the email but it was missing a valid code.

Far Cry 4 is available now across consoles and PC. Stay tuned to We Got This Covered over the coming days when we’ll have our own verdict on Ubisoft’s open-world sequel for you to enjoy.
