Far Cry 6 Updated With Two New Features

A new Far Cry 6 update has been released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X alongside patch notes that reveal and detail everything Ubisoft has tweaked with the update. The update is one of the game's smaller updates yet, but it does have a couple of new features, albeit features of the less consequential variety. 

Despite not seemingly doing a whole lot, the update, which does include some new content, though not very much, has a pretty meaty download. On PC, the update is 8 GB without the HD Texture Pack or 12.4 GB with the HD Texture Pack. On PlayStation 4, the update is 15 -- 21 GB depending on language pack. Meanwhile, the PS5 update is 22.75 GB. And for those on Xbox, the file sizes are as follows: 10 GB on Xbox One, 10 GB on Xbox Series S, and 14 GB on Xbox Series X.

Below, you can check out the update's official and complete patch notes:

Quality-of-Life updates

  • Made several adjustments to reduce the instances where HUD elements would be blocked or hidden, e.g., when changing region.

  • When starting a Special Operation, the player joining the Co-Op session will now be informed which Special Operation is being started.

  • Increased Mission tracker icon and font size when using the "Increased" option for UI and Fonts Scaling under the Vision option menu.

  • Added MSI Mystic Light RGB support to the game.

  • Fixed an issue that could cause enemies to not be shown on the minimap during the "Cocodrilo" Special Operation.


Vaas: Insanity

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the host to be stuck in a black screen after pressing "Save and Quit" in the final scoreboard.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the "Self-Help", "Dear Diary" and "Freudian Field Day" achievements to not correctly unlock after meeting the required conditions.


  • HD Texture Pack -- Some assets appearing blurry
    Developer comment: We have made some changes for the HD Texture Pack on PC that should decrease the blurriness that appeared for some players when using the HD Texture Pack. When looking into these reports, we are seeing players using graphics cards with less than 12 GB of VRAM available. When using the HD Texture Pack with less than the minimum required VRAM available, the performance and the look of the game can be worse than without the pack.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the "Aim Type" and "Weapon Wheel Interaction" options to reset to default when restarting the game.


  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Vaas: Insanity DLC to become unavailable when signing-out and signing-in to the same Xbox Live profile.

  • Fixed an issue that caused players to constantly be prompted with a "Quit Game" message after restarting from Rest mode.

Xbox One

  • Fixed an issue that could cause weapons and weapon attachments to disappear.

Xbox Series X|S

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Menu cursor to get stuck on screen when opening the military escalation popup after loading a save.
