The patch will be automatically triggered upon installing or restarting the Uplay PC client.

Alternatively, users are encouraged to visit the game's official website to access the patch or contact customer support.

Announced by Ubisoft last year, Far Cry 3 returns to the tropical setting made famous by the first Far Cry.

The game will feature a four-player co-operative mode, which takes place six months prior to the events of the single-player campaign.

Far Cry 3 will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on November 30 in Europe and December 4 in North America.
