Far Cry 4 1.8.0 PC patch released – Custom map co-op added

Ubisoft release a new patch for Far Cry 4 with the co-op update.

The latest patch will now enable players to play co-op on user created maps or in single player if you prefer. All maps can now utilise this feature and and map creators can now add two spawn points, one for each player. Alternatively if there is one spawn point on the map then both players will appear at that point. To make life easier, there’s also the ability to Quick Play the top rated maps, random maps and host a co-op game.

The patch can be grabbed by auto-updating through Steam or U-Play and the list of changes are as follows:

New In-Game Editor [IGE] Features:
  • Consoles: Lock/Unlock camera function. This is available when using the “Select” tool.
