Latest Far Cry 3 patch improves matchmaking, stops players from falling through the world

Written by: / / No Comments

Far Cry 3 launched around the world this week and last, and those who’ve played the open-world sandbox shooter have been singing its praises for days on end, with entertaining tales to tell about their time spent in the game’s sprawling, tropical world.

But like in the story of Far Cry 3, not all is well on the technical side of the Rook Islands and Ubisoft is endeavouring to patch the game and ensure that the only bugs you’ll encounter are those buzzing about your face while exploring the environment.
