Far Cry 3 was released today in the UK but PC players who bought the game will still have to wait a little longer before they can start playing.
Reports are coming in that Ubisoft’s Uplay online service is causing server issues in the PC version, causing the game to crash non-stop.
The controversial Uplay service runs alongside the Ubisoft titles; however, in this case the servers are either down or not responding, which results in players being booted off, even from the single-player campaign.
In response Ubisoft published an official apology on its Twitter account and stated that the service would soon be restored.
We’re very sorry for the server issues affecting Far Cry 3 on PC and are working as fast as possible to restore the service.
Uplay was specifically designed to counter piracy in 2009 and was released for Assassin’s Creed 2.
Far Cry 3 will release in North America on December 4 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
