The frustrating wait is finally over for PC gamers, as Ghost Recon Future Soldier finally launched for the platform, but with it comes a day-one patch which has some important bug fixes and gameplay tweaks to dish out. When you launch the game, an auto downloader will appear, giving you the option to download the game update, Ubisoft has stated that, “Installing this update is highly recommended and will be compulsory soon.”
The game update size will be 385 MB and is, “designed to optimize your experience with Ghost Recon Future Soldier,” according to Ubisoft’s official website. The full list of changes can be viewed below.
- Improved stability in online multiplayer matches;
- Improved voice chat quality for PCs running Windows Vista;
- Improved navigation through game’s menus.
The PC day-one update also includes the improvements from the latest title update for the console version:
- Introduced 6-man party system in the multiplayer game mode;
- Balanced several weapons (assault rifles, SMSGs, handguns, shotguns);
- Balanced equipment (grenades, flash bang, EMP, stun guns, number of drones in match);
- Adjusted aim sensitivity and quick scope;
- Fixed map exploits;
- Adjusted melee;
- Adjusted XP values;
- Several technical / network improvements.
The PC version of Ghost Recon Future Soldier hasn’t had the best launch, with gamers reporting random crashes, graphical glitches, keyboard and mouse support problems, frame rate drops etc. Ubisoft is fully aware of these problems, saying, “The team continues to work hard, improving the game experience, supporting the title and listening to the feedback.” Hopefully this patch will calm the angry PC mob and give Ubisoft some breathing space to release more updates, to fix what has been a very buggy release.
