Far Cry 5 Update

Far Cry 5 Update 1.5

Have you been enjoying Far Cry 5? Then you’ll want to check out the new update that is set to be released today. With any luck, it’ll be out and be downloading by the time you’re reading this, and ready to play shortly afterwards.

Avatar Customisation

That’s right folks, you’ll be able to re-do the creation process in the Avatar menu. This includes support for new outfits, masks and more, giving you a little more freedom. Perhaps adding a false moustache later in the game, the bad guys won’t recognise you, right?

Stable

There’s plenty of dull stuff fixed too, such as crashing issues, performance problems, and the odd bit of misbehaving physics. Of course, they’re good things to fix when they’re going wrong, and I expect there are many more similar bugs still to be fixed.
