Ubisoft has a history of releasing poor PC ports and sadly; this doesn’t change with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. There are currently too many bugs and issues that haven’t been fixed, even with the day one patch applied. Anyway, we will try our best to list down as many bugs and workarounds as possible to help you in your quest to play this game without getting annoyed.
Do note that if you aren’t satisfied with the default video settings and feel limited by the in-game options, you can tweak the game by editing the config file that can be found here:
