This week is the debut of Ubisoft's Far Cry 3 and it's launching simultaneously for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Apparently the PC version is in need of some serious patch work for an 'optimal experience'.

Among the patch notes are stability and performance improvements, flickering water textures, UI glitches on certain resolutions and some other less serious tweaks. Here's to stable insanity.

The game should update automatically when you fire up Uplay in order to launch Far Cry 3. If it crashes Ubisoft advise you "restart the Uplay PC client" and try again. Nice.

Below is the 1.01 changelog:

Multiplayer General
•Improved overall Multiplayer stability and performance.
•Added SHOW TOP, SHOW YOU, PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN options in Leaderboards.
•Fix the voice chat issue that would mute players by default.
•Lobby chat can now be accessed when a controller is connected.

•Fixed graphical issues on loading screen hints.
•Fixed the issue that would prevent maps from being displayed or randomized the first time a user enters Public Co-op.
•Health regeneration option no longer has inverted functionality.
•"Flare gun" kills are no longer considered as Assist kills.

•Fixed ground texture resolution.
•Grass surrounding fire spawns no longer remain red on Firestorm maps.

Map Editor
•Improved white objects thumbnails legibility.
•Users can now start a private match in 1 player on user created maps.

Single Player
•Improved game stability and performance.
•Fixed issues with flickering on specific water textures.
•Fixed small UI glitches related to different display resolutions.
•“Weapon cache” mission: Mission Zone and Mission Marker no longer stays on mini-map and on screen after mission completion.
•Crafting items are now auto selected when entering a new crafting category.
•Added sound when zooming in and out the camera with the mouse scroll button.

Far Cry 3 releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC November 30th in EU, 30th in UK, December 4th in the US.

Still on the fence with this one. Perhaps the usual Ubislag price plummet will drag me in, but I don't know.
