Far Cry 4 is out now worldwide with digital and brick-and-mortar retailers ready and waiting to take players cash in exchange for the game. However, not everybody is willing to part with their cash and are instead opting to download Far Cry 4 illegally, though not all is well on the Seven Seas of piracy.
Far Cry 4 has been available to download illegally for a couple of days now and those who chose to partake in the illicit activities have found out the hard way that crime doesn’t pay, nor does it enhance your gaming experience.
The Games Cabin has learned that many of these PC players who are playing illegal copies of Far Cry 4 are having issues with changing the field of view settings within the game and as such they’ve started posting online about their grievances with the game and expect Ubisoft to issue a fix. That’s not happening.
Far Cry 4’s director, Alex Hutchinson publicly called out those who were pirating the game and went on to further discredit them when the pirates gave weak excuses such as getting the game early by using a VPN service which allows users to change their IP address to that of a different nation, theoretically allowing them to purchase and download games that are available in other territories before they release in the users home nation.
Not all is bad in the world of Far Cry 4 though as Hutchinson also confirmed that there will be a co-op mode of sorts for the games Map Editor and it’ll be releasing sometime after launch with the director stating that he has seen it himself.
Lesson learned: don’t pirate, it’s naughty and not much fun.
Far Cry 4 is available now for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. You can get your copy from Amazon UK for the exclusive DLC content.
