Far Cry 3′s EU PC Launch Woes
Far Cry 3 launches in North America on December 4th, but in Europe, it released November 30th to a situation not unlike Diablo 3′s launch — downed servers.
Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 servers were down on launch day, but unlike Diablo 3, the game does have an offline mode. However, users trying to play the game offline were met with glitches that made the game unplayable.
Far Cry 3 runs through Uplay — Ubisoft’s take on Steam — and while setting Uplay to Offline Mode does allow players to run the game without issue, it was not an intuitive solution for most players.
Ubisoft tweeted an official apology, saying they’re working as fast as they can to get the servers back online.
How does this bode for the NA launch?
