Far Cry 4 PC Patch Notes: Update 1.5.0 Adds Support For 21:9 Aspect Ratio, Fixes Issues
If you've been dying to try out your new monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio, there's some good news. Far Cry 4's latest PC patch allows support for ultra-widescreen in addition to plenty of issue fixing.
Ubisoft announced on its forums today that PC patch 1.5.0 for Far Cry 4 is now available to download. The first line item on the patch notes is that the new update allows native support for ultra-widescreen displays. It also adds in Russian language support, so it's a good day to be a Ubisoft fan with an ultra-widescreen monitor in Moscow.
Most of the patch notes, however, are unhelpfully vague. It's apparent that the patch does a lot of issue fixing, but the notes only offer categories of issues that were fixed, not specific problems. For example, PC patch 1.5.0 fixes graphics issues, UI issues and issues with the game's controls, but there's little specific detail to be found.
The patch notes also mention that 1.5.0 makes it so that the game's performance suffers less when the player decides to stream his gameplay. So PC players should feel free to crank up their settings a notch and hop on Twitch. There's always an audience for elephant-based Far Cry 4 rampages.
Far Cry 4 has received mostly positive feedback, though much of this is because it doesn't stray too far from the winning Far Cry 3 formula. In the game, the players takes on the role of Ajay Ghale, a man who returns to his birth country of Kyrat and ends up getting involved in a civil war that his parents had helped to start years before.
Far Cry 4 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
