Even though Far Cry 5 has been selling pretty well (it topped the UK sales chart again last week just like it did in its debut week) and received great reviews, it’s known for being somewhat buggy. Players have reported experiencing mission bugs and A.I. bugs, for example.

Hopefully, this patch will make some significant improvements to the game and it’s doubtful that this will be the only update that Ubisoft releases for the game.
