Ubisoft has said that it’s investigating claims from house owners of Far Cry 6 in Europe saying that they’ve been offered the unsuitable model of the sport, that means that they’ll’t improve from PS4 to PS5 totally free.
Because the sport launched final week, customers throughout Europe, together with in UK, Greece, and Germany, have claimed that they’ve been offered the Russian model of Far Cry 6, which signifies that it’s not possible to improve totally free from their regional PlayStation Community account.
Thus far, the problem appears to be restricted to those that purchased the PS4 model of the sport. Ubisoft is providing a free improve path between variations, making this one of many uncommon PS5 titles that customers can get totally free in the event that they personal each consoles.
Whereas it’s doable to create a Russian PlayStation Community account and declare the free improve that means, it doesn’t remedy the problem for individuals who are unable or unwilling to take action out of precept. Soy definitely wouldn’t be pleased with this answer both, so Ubisoft wants to supply a solution.
One other challenge that can crop up quickly is that customers might want to then buy all of the DLC for the sport from the Russian PlayStation Retailer, which can doubtless be not possible with out some understanding of the language.
One thing related occurred with Ubisoft’s final main launch, Murderer’s Creed Valhalla. This occurs when impartial distributors purchase inventory from a rustic the place it’s offered by publishers cheaper and promote it in dearer territories, resembling Europe. Publishers supply the identical sport at completely different costs, it’s cheaper in Russia than for instance within the UK. The value distinction might be important. Distributors earn good cash shopping for and reselling. In fact, publishers will not be glad when this occurs and do every little thing to stop such observe. If the writer finds out which distributor, or perhaps retailer in Russia offered the inventory and which distributor within the UK purchased it, they may apply sanctions and would possibly even cease contracts with them.
When Ubisoft does determine the issue, it’s going to nonetheless want to supply an answer to those that have a Russian model of the sport. Whether or not that is by way of a free digital copy or a free bodily copy to treatment the problem, one thing will should be achieved, in any other case, these customers might want to purchase a brand new copy as a way to decide up the sport’s DLC.
