Ubisoft have rolled out their latest update to the fifth instalment in the Far Cry franchise, promising to address co-op and arcade issues that have been bugging players who're still happily running around the in-game world of Hope County.

Most of the improvements are reserved for co-op and arcade modes of Far Cry 5, ensuring a smoother online and offline performance. As far as co-op and online tweaks go, Ubisoft touched up on co-op connectivity and some "low occurrence co-op specific walkthrough breaks".

Permanent mute issue some Far Cry 5 players have been experiencing during voice communication has been fixed as well. Completing the co-op tweak section is the issue where "Hurk was blowing up the client player when in a helicopter".

Far Cry 5's arcade mode has received a boost in map download efficiency, which basically means shorter load times. Occasional glitch that makes Far Cry 5's textures "extremely low" has been addressed as well, along with improved PVP matchmaking.

Some PC users have been reporting incorrect spawn locations after minimising the game while it's loading, prompting Ubisoft to address in the update. So far, this seems to be the only PC-exclusive improvement made on the game.

Ubisoft claim the patch fixes "low occurrence" save corruption and "low repro AI issues" as well, along with the host of other tweaks, bug fixes and other general improvements.

Far Cry 5 has not wasted any time since launching, climbing the charts in record manner. In fact, as far as boxed sales go, Far Cry 5 has been the undisputed king of UK charts since it launched some two weeks ago.

Far Cry 5's map editor has gotten much love as well and although we may not have had any hard core standouts as of yet, we'll sure we'll have more than we bargained for come the end of the year.

Having said that, the map editor was tweaked as well, with Ubisoft saying that Arcade Editor crashes will no longer be occuring. Seeing as how many are more excited over the editor than the game itself, it better.
