Far Cry 6 UK Players Can't Upgrade To PS5 Due To Receiving Russian Copy

UK customers who purchased physical copies of Far Cry 6 on PS4 are finding out that they are unable to upgrade to PS5 because they were accidentally shipped the Russian version. Ubisoft's signature open-world FPS franchise, Far Cry, received a new installment last week with the developer confirming the prior month that Far Cry 6 upgrades to the next-gen systems would be free of charge. While this came randomly, many players were joyful that they didn't have to pay an extra $10 to make the jump to next-gen.

Far Cry 6 is the first title in the series to be on ninth-generation consoles and features 60 frames per second near-constantly across all three consoles, as well as 4K visuals, faster loading, and a texture pack to increase graphics to next-gen levels to make use of dynamic resolution technology. The PC version utilizes this even further with an uncapped frame rate, AMD Fidelity FX Super Resolution support, and ray-tracing for incredibly realistic lighting and shadow effects that significantly increase visual fidelity. This makes the open-world shooter's PC version ideal, as Far Cry 6 doesn't support ray tracing on next-gen consoles.

In a video posted to Twitter, user Stuart Pearson is one of several players who have taken to social media to complain about the mix-up after receiving the Russian version of Far Cry 6 instead of the UK one. Demonstrating what happens if you try to play a Russian copy on a British account, Pearson tries to select the free upgrade option on the PS5 dashboard but the game's details are shown in Russian, with the piece being depicted in Rubles, Russia's currency. Its shown that the way to fix the issue is by creating a Russian PlayStation Network account to get the free upgrade, however, that also means that players would lose all game progress or DLC registered to the original UK account. In an update by Eurogamer, Ubisoft has confirmed that it is looking into the issue.

While preserving Far Cry's original formulaFar Cry 6 adds numerous new features and changes to the series that help it stand out from previous titles. Ubisoft's latest installment in its first-person open-world franchise takes place on the fictional Caribbean island of Yara ruled by the title's new main villain Antón Castillo. Far Cry 6 also includes a new perk system for gear, better upgrades and attachments for weapons, customizable vehicles, special player abilities with Supremos backpacks, and many more that help expands the open world's dynamics.

Although released on October 7th to generally positive reviews, many players are still having trouble with Far Cry 6 almost a week later, most specifically in the UK Ubisoft has said they would look into the issue and provide an update for players, but it is unknown when exactly that will happen. For now, Far Cry 6 players will have to wait for the opportunity to upgrade their version.
