Oh Thank Goodness: Far Cry 3's Interface Patch Is Out

The break's nearly upon us, and the news has already fled into its cozy hibernation hole to avoid the harsh shifts in weather and people caring. So now I'm going to tell you about some patch notes, because they're all that's left in this desolate winter wonderland. Fortunately, Far Cry 3's brought a fairly sizable bounty of improvements back from its latest bug hunt, and it even managed to bag the big one: notifications. Yes, you can finally banish those loathsome pop-ups from Jason's face.

So yes, notifications can now be toggled off and on, but unfortunately, you can't go entirely HUD-less just yet. The minimap - useful yet obstinate in a donkey-like fashion, aka the only creature you can't kill in Far Cry 3 - persists regardless of any protests. At least, for now, anyway.

Beyond that, there's a veritable laundry list of house-keeping in this one. For instance, single-player supports DLC now. I didn't know it was incapable of that before, but hey, the more you know. Meanwhile, Ubisoft squashed a rather alarmingly sizable swarm of bugs. Thankfully, the bulk of fixes pertain to smaller things, so the game wasn't secretly broken all along or anything like that.

It's available now. I just told you about patch notes. Alright then, I think I'm done.
