Far Cry Primal PC Patch Brings Stability and Changes to Expert Mode

Far Cry Primal PC version was released today, a week after the console version came out, but still it is all but a mess for the fans. There are tons of errors causing the game to crash, freeze or become laggy while people are also complaining about down-gradations.

There are so many complaints that it looks like Ubisoft screwed up again. However, the developer are surely working on solutions for the problems and the day one patch for the game has also been released.
