The previously detailed PC patch 1.5.0 for Far Cry 4 has been released by Ubisoft today, but players are still reporting problems with stuttering and other issues. It’s a 1.3GB download (through uPlay, anyway) and reportedly attempts to address the following:
- Added 21:9 aspect ratio support
- Added Russian text and subtitles to worldwide game version
- Fixed an issue with aim assist
- Fixed an issue with grappling if aim button was remapped on another key
- Fixed an issue with mouse input
- Fixed an issue with movement key binding on mouse buttons
- Fixed an issue with Uplay invites in Steam version
- Fixed various Controls issues
- Fixed various Graphic issues
- Fixed various IGE issues
- Fixed various Session Browser issues
- Fixed various UI issues
- NVIDIA graphics preset was removed
- Reduced performance drop impact during streaming
Players over at NeoGaf are suggesting the “same old stuttering” problems persist. A complaint which is echoed at the Ubisoft forums as well. Someone over there is still getting the black screen crash on loading.
By the sounds of things, Nvidia’s much-anticipated “Hairworks” is still missing too. Though the pre-release patch notes for 1.5.0 never said they were going to implement that, so it’s perhaps not a huge surprise.
TXAA is apparently still rather broken as well. But PCSS (Percentage-Closer Soft Shadows) should work now on the relevant Nvidia cards.
