Anyone doing FarCry 4 ???
 
I just bought FarCry 4 Kyrat Edition.

With all the time I have been spending in Tamriel, I almost forgot about it.

Whew ... got it just in time to get all the pre-release purchase bonus missions and items. I went for the GameStop package. I wonder what the Yak Farm is all about. Vally of the Yetis sounds interesting.

Pre-release bonus missions? :rolleyes: This kind of thing really bugs me... They realease the game in parts on day 1 to bleed as much cash out of the fans as they can.

Anyhow, IF the game is really good I may purchase that stuff later. IF its just FC3 re-skinned then I wont.
Will try and dl it tonight.

Heads up: there's a bug with FC4 where the game just wont start for a significant number of users. There are several threads on the STEAM forums about this with a possible fix for some which involves disconnecting USB devices from the system.

The FarCry 4 Kyrat Edition is being shipped. There were none in the store for PC. I just got my tracking number.

I did see a Day 1 Patch on the FarCry 4 website.

And I saw there was a STEAM problem. However UPlay was working fine. I'm expecting my copy, when it arrives since it was not purchased from STEAM, to be a UPlay version.

I look around to see which store or vendor is packaging the most interesting promotional "buy-it-from-us" pre-release purchase bundle. Someone usually puts together a better bundle than the others.

This time it was GameStop. But I do look at Best Buy, Amazon, STEAM, the publisher, NY Camera stores, and European and Australian game stores. One interesting version of FarCry 4 came from Russia; it included a Zippo lighter with the FC4 logo engraved on it.

Hmmmmmm .... That's interesting .... I just read on PCGamer that FarCry 4 will not be released on STEAM in the UK.

I am cheap - I will wait until it is on sale. Just got the Far Cry franchise up to FC3 for $10 over the weekend on steam. ;)

Nice!!! :shaka:

My favorite is STILL FarCry 1. The "going down the river" level was my favorite.

Did they finally make the unofficial save anywhere/anytime patch an official patch to FarCry 1? Out of the box it was waypoint saves only. Many players complained. I still have the manual addon patch for that fix in my original installation of FarCry 1.

Yes, so far, it is still the best. I had Far Cry 1 on CDs already. I don't know if they changed the save format. I played with the waypoint saves version.

Does anyone know if there's a manual save in number 4?

I got the code yesterday for FC4. Haven't gotten around to loading Uplay and installing the game yet.

Re: Anyone doing FarCry 4 ???
 
I cannot play this game at the moment :( It seems I'm having the same issue as many many others where it hangs at the intro movie. The STEAM and Uplay forums are full of posts about this issue.

I've even heard of startup issues on consoles.

Is anyone here actually able to run the game yet?

Hmmmm .... So one still has to install the manual save feature manually. I recommend doing so with FC1.
